My kids always look forward to go to class because of the great instructors and staff. They are always eager to learn new techniques and apply them during practice. Coach Eric Rubio is always pleasant to talk to at the front desk, and the kids love Coach Connor, as well as the other coaches. The studio is always clean, and the environment is friendly.

Ricardo is a great guy and the instruction is top-notch. I've trained at a few BJJ schools and none have compared to this one.

There is certainly something special about this place. In the short time our son has attended, we've noticed his confidence and social demeanor completely change for the positive. The teachers are excellent w/ young and old.

Coach Brad

Biography

Brad Schmidt | Blue Belt

 

Brad has been a student of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2017 and has one year of competition experience. He has the ability to identify each student’s learning curve and be able to adapt his instructions for each student and help them along at a pace that is comfortable to them. Brad also brings a good sense of humor to the mat, making training sessions both fun and informative. He believes that this approach helps engage and inform his students, while also maintaining a good level of hard work. Through Jiu Jitsu, Brad has overcome his fear of not knowing outcomes and instead enjoys the constant progression of development in being calm in all things. He has learned to shift his fear-based thinking of “what if” to a more centered mindset of “even if”. Overcoming these challenges has helped Brad bring an atmosphere that exudes “growing in a safe place” for our younger students. Brad is an instructor who genuinely cares about those who want to better themselves. Away from the mat, Brad is an avid outdoorsman always looking for a new adventure in hiking, surfing, and kayaking. As with many of our other instructors, Brad has a love for a variety of music and goes about his daily life with a soundtrack playing.
