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.

Professor Matt

Biography

Name: Matt Mahoney

Belt: Black

Why do you train BJJ?:  I train BJJ because of its proven self defense effectiveness and it’s challenge as a sport. BJJ is constantly improving and evolving, which in turn requires the practitioner to be constantly improving and evolving regardless of rank or level. BJJ is truly a system that requires just as much (if not more) mental engagement as it does physical. Aside from the physical benefits, health benefits, and practical application, training has forced me to look inward constantly and grow as a person. All that aside, BJJ is fun, has allowed me to create some of the best friendships I could ask for, while allowing me to
Connect and find a mat to train on anywhere I travel.

Why do you enjoy coaching?: I have been a coach in several aspects of life for the past 17 years. Whether it be sports, business, or martial arts, coaching has allowed me to grow tremendously as an individual, while providing an opportunity to give back in a way that provides a path toward success for others, which is the ultimate reward.

What can your students learn from doing BJJ beyond just martial arts skills?:  Through my approach to teaching BJJ, students can apply the same mental process involved in addressing complex issues and situations by breaking them down into their simplest form. This mind and skill set can be applied anywhere, whether it be school, the workplace, or in day to day interactions with other people.

Fun facts about yourself, other hobbies or favorite things? :  I’m a dedicated husband, and father of two girls. Hockey and lacrosse are my favorite sports off the mat. I’m from Chicago, but love the Packers. I enjoy music, and believe The Office is and will forever be the best tv series ever created.
