My kids have been training here for about 6 months. My son has gone from playing Xbox in his free time to doing Jiu Jitsu 5 times a week and loving it. They did their first tournament and it was amazing seeing how far they have progressed. It's not just about self defense, training, tournaments, exercise, etc. They have become family. Going to the tournament has made me love the Jiu Jitsu community even more. There was great sportsmanship and encouragement all around.
