These just in! Please help support if you can.


Over and over you've shown us what it means to be tough, to have heart. To not be "a baby with a pencil neck." You told us that "excuses are the nails that build a house of failure." And through the worst year we've ever had, you lost 35lbs in four months. You lead by example, you do more for your friends than you do for yourself. This year may not have been your year, but you're still one of the best in the world, no matter what Courtney says. ❀️


Congratulations Chris

Here is a sneak peak of our new 3200 Sq Ft Facility. Featuring a front Matted area of 32' x 32', an over flow 20' x 30' matted room. 500 sq ft of weights and cardio equipment. 4 bathroom/showers. Plenty of lockers and a front desk and sitting area.

It's a work in progress, it needs a little TLC but it's ready to roll!

Congratulations Chris Larkin!


Following in his father's footsteps, Little Arthur trains everyday, in both juniors and adults class, helps new students, teaches class, and cleans the gym. Not to mention he won gold via three armbars in his last tournament. πŸ’ͺ

The qualities he has gained from his father and from jiu jitsu; leadership, perseverance, courage, discipline and grit to name a few, will stay with him for life. He is growing into an amazing young man. Congratulations little Arthur! 08/12/2020
