I've been coming here a while now and the honest truth is Professor Luis and his wife are some of the most down to earth and humble people you will ever meet. They have visiting professors who compete at the highest levels of black belt competition and not a one of them is ever too busy to help out a beginner or lower rank student. They make a point of saying the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey is different for everyone and as long as you are enjoying the trip that's all that matters. Wholeheartedly recommend this school for kids, teens and adults.The community is absolutely awesome!
