New Competition Classes!!!
Starting this week we will begin a Tuesday and Thursday evening competition class. This class is by invitation only, will run from 7pm to 8:30pm, and will switch between being Gi and No-Gi depending on the current tournament schedule. If you would like to participate in this class please ask our head instructor, Kevin, for permission. Those who choose to participate in this class are required to show up on time and may not leave early (unless an injury or emergency occurs). If you are late you will need to ask permission from instructor to participate in class. If you are consistently late you will no longer be eligible to participate in this class. The same rules apply to those that want to leave early! We have to implement and enforce these rules for the competition class because we have many people that want to attend, and be successful in, high level tournaments and are relying on their training partners to help them be the best they can become. If you are always late or leaving early you are letting your teammates down. These rules only apply for the competition team. Our regular classes are much more relaxed! Starting August 5th we will also be adding a competition team class to the mornings as well. The morning competition team will run from 9am to 10:00am on Monday and Wednesday mornings. This class follows the same rules as the evening competition team classes. See schedule here!
Slight Change to Evening Classes
Evening classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday now end at 8:00pm instead of 8:30. BJJ Fundamentals will run from 6-7pm and Advanced BJJ will run from 7-8pm. See schedule here!

Caio Terra Seminar
Caio Terra came to our gym this past Saturday and Sunday and put on a great seminar covering lots of awesome techniques. Those who didn’t make it really missed out! We hope to have him back out again in the beginning of the new year. Thank you Professor Terra for coming out to our academy and putting on such a great seminar!!!
