Please bring a gi if you have it, otherwise come to the no-gi classes listed on our schedule. Please bring water.

I wanted to improve the quality of Brazilian jiu jitsu offered in the Gold Country region.
What do you love most about your job?
That’s a really hard question. I love everything about it!
