“Our mission is to empower your children with the confidence, discipline and self-respect that comes from training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In addition, as their physical skills mature, it is important your children’s emotional development is nurtured as well. Martial arts teaches us that fighting is not the best way to solve a problem. Valuable life skills are developed on our mats, but this process takes time. These ranking guidelines were created to give you an understanding of the work involved.
We do not test like traditional martial arts academies. For us, everyday is a test. Students are constantly monitored and evaluated. When the moment is right, students receive validation for their hard work. Positive reinforcement is a valuable teaching tool, and we use it often, but we want every student to know nothing was given to them - they earned it. We believe in every student who walks through our door, our goal is to make them believe as well.
On behalf of myself and my teaching staff, thank you for your support.”
-Jean Jacques Machado
