This place is amazing! Being taught by an authentic Brazilian black belt who has competed his whole life. It’s a very supportive atmosphere that will help push you, encourage you, and celebrate your accomplishments.
My 2 kids (an 11-year-old girl & 8-year-old boy) and I have been training under Professor Tâniel since 2019. Professor Tâniel has been nothing short of incredible, from teaching the kids the sport he loves some much to empowering them to be their best selves while making sure everyone is treated like family and with respect. I would highly recommend his gym to anyone. One of the best decisions my wife and I have ever made.
I can't recommend this place enough! professor Tâniel is the best! My 3 sons and I do this as a family and love it!
This place, these people, and most of all Professor Tâniel are an absolute blessing! I started my kiddo here under Tâniel almost a year ago and in that time frame, my kid has excelled, not only in the sport but in many other aspects of life. This place, actually this FAMILY of people is amazing. As a military family, it’s hard to find a place that feels like home, but when you walk into this building you will see we are all family. Professor Tâniel's love for these kids shows through every single day. His dedication to the kids, the sport, and the families of this gym is unmistakable. If you want a place for your kids to learn and be loved this is the place. And as an adult, if you wanna teach the old dog a new trick this is the place to do so. I cannot recommend this gym enough!
Absolutely amazing gym to be a part of! Professor Tâniel is adored by our children! He is absolutely passionate about BJJ and it shows when he is teaching his students. Professor takes time to ensure that his students understand what he is teaching and is very patient with our kiddos. Our family also loves that he practices what he teaches. He has competed in a multitude of competitions and won various titles. He has set an amazing example for our kids to follow and they definitely look up to him! If you are looking for a humble, down-to-earth, family-oriented, and disciplined gym, that will absolutely help you reach your goals and help you bring home the gold, this is the gym you should call home.
