Our Aim is to provide the best Jiu-Jitsu Instruction in an atmosphere that everyone feels at home.

In 2013 Professor Mike and his wife Lucia started a program for friends and family in their Garage! It kept growing and growing! Now we have a gym full of young, old, beginners, advanced and many more! We have not just created a great environment, but have had success competitively.
