  • That’s a lot of mat space!

    That’s a lot of mat space!

    One of the great things about our new location at 5252 W. Vickery Blvd. is the amount of mat space that we have now. It allows us to teach multiple classes at once, and opens up the schedule to provide more options to parents and kids. Within the last 6 weeks, we have held an in-house tournament, hosted Master Carlos Machado’s RCJ kids competition team from various locations, and had three different Jiu Jitsu classes running simultaneously to accommodate different ages and interests. All of this wouldn’t be possible without having almost 3,000 square feet of mats! That’s just the beginning. Wait until you see what we do with the other 6,000 square feet of space that we ....

  • Master Carlos Machado's Seminar Was A Success!

    Last Friday’s seminar was amazing! Thanks to Master Carlos Machado, we had a great seminar last week. It was truly impressive how he asked everyone what they were interested in learning and managed to relate some part of the lesson to all of the requests by the time it was over. No matter whether you are brand new to Jiu-Jitsu or a seasoned black belt, Master Machado’s seminars have something for everyone. His system of teaching “micro-mechanics” and breaking everything down into steps is really beneficial when trying to remember the techniques later. In addition to the seminar, we had a promotion! Many of our kids are working their way up ....
