"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."

"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!"

"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."

"I can not recommend Team Link Glastonbury and Coach Tony enough. Beginning this long, but rewarding journey has been one of the greatest decisions I have ever made. I walked in on day 1 for my free class both nervous and intimidated. Half way through the first class all of that uncertainty turned into excitement. I knew I found a group of people that would help me to grow within the art of Jiu Jitsu, but also as a person. Coach Tony is patient and thorough. He puts technique first no matter what the situation, ensuring that a student of any physical condition or skill level can be successful. This is my first time training in a martial arts gym, but I get the feeling that finding a place like Team Link Glastonbury is rare. Come in an take the free class and see for yourself!"
