2009-01-30 17:59:52   This place is great. I have been training in grappling here since July 2008 and I felt I have grown much both mentally and physically. The instructors really know their stuff and have lots of experience in their areas of expertise. They care about the students and want us to succeed in our goals, whether they would be amateur competing, self defense or just personal fitness. For the grappling class, there are students of all different styles and body types to roll(spar) with. It does help you prepare for all kinds of opponents if you are considering competing. There are also tons of information about grappling tournaments. With Coach Herzog's root in Judo/Sambo and his openness to the cutting edge and innovated 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu, the students can really have the best of both worlds. There are also striking classes and Fight fitness for people with different taste. Highly recommended. —Huan
