Big things coming still. Thank you to everyone that has been a part of our voyage… this is not the final destination….


A big thank you to the coaches that helped me with making sure that our kids had someone there to support them. It’s not always necessary but it definitely gives the kids a level of comfort. 13 kids and 3 coaches. Our Coaches put in a great level of dedication and discipline to our Kids program. Couldn’t ask for a better team of coaches and parents to help assist our family of kids that train here. Stay tuned for more exciting things coming down the pike. Happy Sunday and happy holidays..


Please join us on 12/16/2023 from 12pm - 3pm for some open mat, raffles, check out the cold tubs, saunas, massage chairs, etc... It'll be an awesome time

Starting to look like a dojo. Slowly but surely, it’s coming together. Thank you everyone again for the help that you’ve provided. Means a lot to me. And a big thank you for a lot of the heavy duty stuff this past weekend. We’re almost at the finish line. Can’t wait for it to be complete and have all the add ins in it… so much more to come!

End of an era… bittersweet to say the least but it’s definitely what I was made to do. Thank you everyone that helped make this incredible transition as easy as possible. Regardless of my challenges and sacrifices that I’ve had, I know I’m in the right place at the right time and making the best of everything that comes my way. I’m truly blessed and thank God everyday for helping me find my purpose and passion at the age that I did. People go their whole lives never finding their passion… something that becomes their identity… which is unfortunate because they don’t understand the joy it brings in life. BJJ is my passion, this school is my purpose, and teaching this beautiful art is what I was meant to do.
Thank you everyone for the support, the kind words, the time, and your confidence in me. This is just the beginning many more changes in the next few months. Please stay tuned! God is Great; all Glory to God. Dreams do come true… if you’re willing to fight for them.


Please join us for our Veterans Breakthrough Open Mat tomorrow at 10am! See you all there!


We will resume classes on 7/5. Have a great, fun and safe 4th of July with friends and family! ❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸


Attention Students, Parents and everyone in between… there will be no classes tomorrow evening. We will have open mat from 10am - 12pm. Please share info for those that do not have social media (IG or FB). Everyone is welcome. Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day and a fun long weekend.


Parents, students, coaches, we will be closed this Friday 6/2/23. Please share info with those that do not have social media. We will be having a celebration of our 2 Year Anniversary. Please join us at Main Event in Gilbert (next to Top Golf) for some bowling and fun. So let’s take the night off and enjoy some of this free time to celebrate and come back fresh to the mats on Monday! Can’t believe it’s been 2 years already. Couldn’t be possible without everyone at the school! Thank you for your support and, trust and friendship. Hope to see you guys there.
