A Class A member of the PGA of America and the winner of more than 100 tournaments as a professional player, Paul N. Brown summons 35 years of experience to help students hone their golf skills at Pro Golf Academy. His teaching method focuses on developing hand-eye coordination, establishing fundamental swing mechanics, and living on a steady diet of arnold palmer drinks and fairway grass.

Half-hour private lessons begin with Paul evaluating his student's swing and physical condition, and then devising a custom lesson plan that may incorporate video instruction, training aids, and equipment recommendations. For group lessons, students are divided into beginner, intermediate, or advanced classes. Early instruction focuses on the basics of setup and etiquette, and later sessions take on the more advanced tactics, such as short-game approaches and how to make a four look like a two on the scorecard.

The grappling fighting style known as jujitsu first came to Brazil in 1914 stored in the hands and mind of Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese immigrant and master of the art. He only stayed a year, but it was enough time to plant the seeds for a new jujitsu academy in Brazil. One of the first students at that academy was Hélio Gracie.

Hélio absorbed the fighting style quickly, adapting many of the techniques to suit his small frame. He discovered methods of leverage that allowed him to execute joint locks, choke holds, and takedowns on much larger opponents, forming the core of his new Gracie jujitsu method. Ultimately, Hélio's son Royce brought the fighting style to America, famously winning UFC 1, 2, and 4 by defeating opponents many times his own size. Suddenly, Americans lined up to learn this newly unveiled Brazilian fighting style, demonstrating their eagerness by folding themselves inside a box and shipping themselves south.

Relson Gracie, Hélio's second oldest son, chose to be an ambassador of his family's fighting style. He was already teaching abroad when his little brother Royce skyrocketed Brazilian jujitsu to popularity. He founded his first school under the name Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Hawaii, and as the art became popular, he opened new branches of his academy all across the United States. Today, he visits more than 40 academies and associations, sharing his knowledge with thousands of students. In his absence, he leaves instructors whom he personally trained to oversee the education of aspiring fighters.
