“It has become a second home and family to me.”
“Safety, discipline and teaching is the only thing I’ve seen from Judan.”
“In Three different States and one is a 2nd place National champion.”
Excellent place for children very structured and best prices and staff in the area period!!
This is a great place to train. All the instructors are nationally certified and only want the best for their students. Safety, discipline and teaching is the only thing I’ve seen from Judan. Every one cares about the students and want to be as helpful as possible. If you’re looking for a great place to train this is it!
I have been under the training of the instructors here for 7 years. It has become a second home and family to me. I look forward to the next time I can go as soon as I leave practice. To majority of us when we walk in the doors everything going on outside is left behind, entering a place where you know you are surrounded by people who will love,care,mentor, and protect you. They are there to help you improve yourself inside the gym and out. The instructors are always accommodating to your needs in the training you want. A handful of the instructors have law enforcement back ground one in which who still works at the police academy (Instructor Russ) is always taking the initiative to teach self defense, Police tactics, Judo and Jiu jitsu. He has a passion for supporting the growth of the ones he has trained in the past and currently. You will always find him working along side his students rather than coaching from the side line. Sensei Neals is an amazing motivator in pushing yourself to the limits in order to show you the strength and confidence you never thought existed within yourself. Sensei Gary is the owner of the gym, full of knowledge from his life experiences. He is retired Law enforcement and Marine Veteran who is willing to share what he knows to those who ask even if it is not what we are currently learning. These instructors are highly motivated when it comes to teaching people how to protect themselves no matter your age,gender,size or if you have a disability. They will find ways to modify in order for the techniques to be most effective. These people are a life changer in so many ways to the fullest extent. I couldn’t be more blessed for crossing their paths.

Excellent teacher- the class really pushes you to your limits and has a great atmosphere. Classes are small but allow for great instruction.
I have been to many martial arts schools I enjoy this one alot more then the others because you get a well rounded martial arts background and the skills and confidence to defend yourself if the situation presents itself I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in taking marital arts

Gracie Bay View
Pedro Sauer was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, having started his combat sports training through boxing at the age of 5. Sauer also added judo and taekwondo to his expertise at a later stage. At age fifteen, his friend Rickson Gracie, invited him to come and train Jiu-Jitsu with his younger brother (Royler Gracie), who was only nine years old. The outcome of this experience convinced Pedro that jiu-jitsu was the most effective of all the martial arts, and he began grappling at the Gracie academy the very next day. Master Pedro Sauer holds an eighth-degree red/black belt under Rickson Gracie.

“One of the nicest instructors I have met, really treats you like family.”
“Fantastic place to learn self defense and Jiu Jitsu…”
“Outstanding instruction from Jason Bodi and very welcoming group of people.”
I was able to train here for a few weeks while traveling for work I was vary impressed with how well the techniques were taught really focused on the small details to make them work and it was presented in a way that everyone could understand from children to adults I really enjoyed my time there training with great friendly people I hope to return one day
Very experienced and knowledgeable instructors with a all around great learning environment, I highly recommend!
Was in town for work and was looking for somewhere to train. I gave the head instructor a call and he was so helpful and polite, that I instantly got a good vibe about training there. When I got to the gym, he was helpful and very knowledgeable. Despite how short of a time I had there, I had a great time. Would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone interested.
