Incredible gym! I’ve been training with Misfits for two years and could not be happier with my decision. This gym has an amazing learning environment and everyone is very friendly. The people I have met as students at the gym, as well and especially as coach Brad, have become incredible supports in my life. Train at Misfits!!

This is a fun place to learn jiujitsu. The coaches are chill and are always trying to help you get better. As far as learning jiujitsu, this place does not let you down! For one thing, they always make sure you got the technique down and make it a really safe learning environment. The students are really nice and help you improve on your jiujitsu even more. For any parents wondering, the kids jiujitsu class is really fun and specifically designed for children so they don’t get bored and are always having a fun time. Highly recommend this gym!

Misfits Jujitsu is a fun place to learn Jujitsu, for 1 thing the coaches are really nice and fun people to work with. Coach Brad is encouraging and supportive and he gives us the basics of Jujitsu. He's proud of us when we do something great. We also do sparring with coaches and other kids at 6:00 because it gives you more real life experience.

Stayed at the Q center for work last week and popped in here to train a few nights. The crew could not have been more welcoming and I had an awesome time training with them. Brad is an awesome instructor who truly cares about his students. If you live local you should definitely come check it out and train. If you’re in town for work go pop in as well, they’re incredibly welcoming.

I was really hesitant to come in being new to jiu jitsu but Brad quickly changed that. Safety is a big priority and the group is so welcoming. It’s been a great experience and looking forward to learning more! Great to see a range of beginners to experienced growing together and helping one another.

Great experience! Everyone was super welcoming and fun to roll with. I brought my son and they have a nice spot for kids to chill to play with their toys, read, or play video games. Plenty of parking, several areas to change, store your equipment, clean bathroom. Good stuff. Their gear is also pretty cool too. Thanks guys!

Really excited to have found this place. Great group of people all levels, ages, and sizes. Nobody's trying to hurt anyone, and everyone is helping each other get better. Exactly what I was looking for after a decade plus of not working out and being over 40. Brad is great and extremely technical! Highly recommended!

Misfit jujitsu is absolutely amazing : in today's day and age with so much madness happening in the world , it's always an asset to learn self defense. Including children huh ? I joined a few years back with Brad; and He has a way of explaining things to help you learn. Not only that but hes extremely inviting , personable, and enthusiastic. Such a great atmosphere; and just being able to truly learn the art of jujitsu for what it should be . Tottally recommend to beginners, and advanced !

I’ve learned so much from Brad, he is by far the best instructor I’ve had...in any class I’ve been in whether it be bjj, school or work I’ve never met someone so enthusiastic and knowledgeable in his field. Even after moving states I still make it a point to stop by for a class whenever I’m around. I seriously can’t wait for the next time I’m able to roll in his gym!

I've been training with Brad for about 10 years now. In fact we started Jiu Jitsu the same week. You will have a hard time finding anyone who is as passionate about the sport than he is. The team is a real great group too who many I have know for many years as well. A ton of fun, and a safe environment to learn one of the best sports on the planet!!!!

I've started training with Brad the past year and a half after a hiatus (and other gyms) and will say the quality of instruction Brad gives is few and far between. Not only does he explain Jiu Jitsu in a simple way, he patiently breaks it down until you grasp what he is saying. He really cares about you learning Jiu jitsu correctly. I myself have made huge strides in my practice since working with him again, and learning to see techniques that others in the local area are not teaching. Furthermore, he always stays up to date with the current techniques in the competitive scene. Brad's passion for Jiu Jitsu bleeds through him, and I highly recommend him as an instructor.
