As a 4th-degree black belt, Alexander "Soca" Freitas’s fighting resumé is a formidable one. He has won multiple competitions - including the highly prestigious ADCC Championship, where he was also named "Most Technical Fighter" - and is a five-time Brazilian National Jiu-Jitsu Championship winner. He earned his black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr., the son of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu’s founder, and he spent 25 years mastering the grappling art at the Gracie Barra main academy. Since becoming a teacher himself, Soca has awarded black belts to 24 of his students. However, he doesn't try to force any of his protégés into following his footsteps—instead of matching his impressive accolades with an intimidating attitude, Soca welcomes students of all ages, builds, and abilities to his gym.
Soca leads classes in both beginning and advanced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques. The martial-arts discipline depends on leverage and holds rather than weapons to subdue opponents, and he demonstrates these maneuvers during practice drills. Students progress through the curriculum by testing to receive successive belts rather than by wrestling a written exam to the ground. Soca ultimately leaves their goals up to them, whether they hope to perfect their self-defense moves, compete in MMA tournaments, or simply engage in healthy exercise. Aside from standard Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lessons, the gym also hosts private classes, children's classes, and strength-and-conditioning sessions, led by co-owner Samantha Freitas.

Nationally certified dog trainer Jessica Freedman doesn't believe in a cure-all for disobedient dogs. Having graduated from National K-9 Learning Center, where she was introduced to an array of obedience-training techniques, she knows you have to treat each dog on a case-by-case basis.
That's why, at Sublime K9 Dog Training, before a "sit" or a "stay" or a "file the taxes" is uttered, she schedules a complimentary evaluation. Using the info from the evaluation, she tailors a plan that suits both the dog and the family. Her services range from alleviating puppies' separation anxiety to teaching older dogs who have gotten behind the learning curve.
Her knowledge of canines also shows during her bite-prevention classes. In them, she teaches kids how to read canine body language in order to prevent bites.
