"Jiu Jitsu is the gentle art. It's the art where a small man ( or woman ) is going to prove to you, no matter how strong you are, no matter how mad you get, that you're going to have to accept defeat. That's what Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is."
Saulo Ribeiro 5x World Champion
"Jiu Jitsu for me has been that piece of the puzzle I didn't know was missing and Coach Tony has played a huge role guiding me on my Jiu Jitsu journey. His commitment and compassion toward his students is second to none. It has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life to train beside such a great man."
"Deciding to start Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been one of the best decisions I've made. BJJ is the best path to self mastery both physically and mentally I've ever come across. I have lost weight, become better at problem solving and found a genuine community of teammates and friends who are interested in helping me get better."
"Brazilian Jiu jitsu rewards you with being able to tap into resources you didn’t know you had. When you face adversity on the mats everything in your life becomes easier. It’s something you can take with you from day one! Coach Tony has a profound love of the art. From the basic to the highest level techniques he keeps you engaged and wanting more. You’ll gain more than a coach, you’ll gain a friend too."
"Jiu Jitsu has become my source for both physical and mental health! It is a never ending puzzle, a continuously changing game of human chess! It never gets boring or monotonous, as you are constantly learning and evolving. Jiu Jitsu provides piece of mind, self awareness and unquestionable self confidence. I could not imagine a better guide in your Jiu Jitsu journey than Tony. He is always a positive smiling face even while he chokes you out! An extremely knowledgeable martial artist, Tony is very attentive to the details of technique but even more attentive to his students needs, desires and overall Jiu Jitsu journey. I have made his class a staple of my weekly Jiu Jitsu schedule because of how much I enjoy his Instruction and how much I gain in general Jiu Jitsu knowledge! Thanks coach Tony! Oss!!!
