Words can’t express the emotions I felt today. I am forever grateful for the support I’ve received from this team. It is such an honor to receive my black belt from Professor Ricardo Almeida. Professor Almeida is a legend in this sport and yet still takes the time to focus on us all individually. You’ve taught me so many things both on and off of the mats which I am forever indebted. I can honestly say I wouldn’t be where I am today without the team you’ve built.
I can’t say enough about how much my two boys have grown in their youth program the past year. My 4 and 6-year-old have not only become physically stronger, but they also remind me how we can all be kind to each other. My older son has become more confident too, which I attribute to the class! Thank you
"I've been lucky enough to train under some of the best combat sports coaches in the world. Simply put, there is a reason Professor Ricardo is sought out across the globe - he's among the best jiu jitsu teachers on Earth and the rest of the staff is world-class. More important, though, is Professor's focus on the jiu jitsu way of life - being excellent, healthy and happy on and off the mats and getting there through BJJ.
