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.

While the focus of our gym is on bettering people’s mental and physical health through the use of Jiujitsu we do have some excellent competitors that are going to do very well in the near future. Something very important is that our competitors are not only successful but that they can work safely with our more hobbyist students just looking to have fun. Very proud to say we have that and can’t wait to see the big things this group will do!
