A Chat with North Broadway Jiu Jitsu
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? I have over 30 years of martial arts training and have won numerous international competitions. My school, North Broadway Jiu Jitsu, has produced hundreds of tournament champions in the last 10 years.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans? My program is geared towards the beginner student, with 10 classes per week for the novice student. I offer a complimentary one-on-one introductory session to cover all basic questions.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? After taking 4 years off from Jiu Jitsu competition, I competed in the Relson Gracie Nationals in 2005, winning 7 matches without being scored upon. Relson Gracie came up to me and said, "you are awesome." Hearing amazing words from a god of Jiu Jitsu inspired me to continue my open my school.
What do you love most about your job? I love helping people reach their goals in Jiu Jitsu. The lessons learned here can be applied to all aspects of one's life; school, family, business and sports.
