It is obvious by our namesake as to what we do. More importantly, I must share why we do it.
I know a few things about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It is a physically, mentally and emotionally demanding sport that takes years to understand. It takes disciplined practice. It requires you to stay healthy. It demands some sacrifice.
This is why we train.
At the time when I first started I was unaware of how challenging Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was. In the beginning, it was very difficult, but as I practiced, those very challenges became the sole reason for continuing. I discovered that it is more than a physical activity, but a lifestyle that extends beyond the mats and the training hall. It is very difficult to describe what it feels like as it permeates every aspect of your life. You have to experience it to understand.
This is why I started this academy. To pass along this lifestyle to others. Since 2004, I have trained a lot of people. Those that have stayed are a talented and dedicated group. They share the reason why we train.
I know we are not a traditional martial arts academy. I do not espouse to be. I do not boast that our art is the best or my academy is the premier facility in the area. I make no assertions that this will improve your self-worth, your ability to focus, or that you will lead a disciplined life. I do not guarantee success.
I only guarantee that me and my team will push you to live the life. The rest is up to you.
