"The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants in life is merely the will to try and the faith to believe that it is possible."
- Richard M. Devos

"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
"Just started a few weeks ago and am enjoying my time! Tony and the higher belts are very helpful and is a team environment!"
"I recently started at Team Link Glastonbury. The black belt instructors have been great at working through drills and explaining concepts. Even better, the team at Team Link GSB is really strong. The class is full of students of all belt ranks who are humble, friendly, and generous with their time and advice. Great place to learn and grow in BJJ, I recommend to anyone seeking a challenge!"
"I am new to BJJ, but I can still tell that this is a great place to learn it. The environment is both physically and verbally clean, a real family atmosphere. There is also a great team camaraderie that I enjoy being a part of. I like that I receive attention from black belts, purple belts, and blue belts. Everybody is very willing to help me learn the proper techniques. I also feel safe in learning here, nobody is there to hurt me, and I am comfortable reporting any injuries that limit my training. I am very happy to have found Team Link Glastonbury."
"I cannot say enough good things about this gym- Coach Tony is an expert in the art of BJJ and he is an incredibly gifted teacher. Whether you are a fresh white belt like myself, or an experienced grappler, he systematically teaches nuanced techniques for any level that WORK. He carries himself with a kind, calm demeanor, that reflects in the community he has cultivated at this school. No egos, no pride- everyone wants you to learn and grow as part of the team. I only wish I started this earlier. Highly recommend!"
