A Chat with Triangle Jiu-Jitsu Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are the only Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu school in Durham. We have World and Pan-American champions, as well as pro and amateur MMA fighters. But the majority of our students are martial artists focused on self-defense and fitness. We are an attitude-first gym where the atmosphere is safe and friendly.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Be open minded and ready to learn. The art is counter-intuitive and takes patience to learn. All that’s required is a positive attitude.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
To help spread what I consider to be the greatest martial art on the planet. And to give people the tools and skills to keep them selves and those around them safe—ll while getting in shape, staying healthy and making great new friends.
What do you love most about your job?
Watching the confidence in my students grow. Watching people lose weight and get healthy. And of course watching my students succeed in all they do.
