On Thursday November 8 from 7:30pm - 9:00pm we will be hosting an introduction to our ground classes. This class will  cover why we train BJJ w/ Krav, and then an overview of how to play the "game" such as getting to ground, what is guard,  guard passes and controlling positions. If there is time, we may even show a couple of submissions. 

We have many students that are interested in our ground classes but my feel a bit uneasy about jumping right in. This intro class is a great opportunity to cover the basics so they can feel comfortable about joining the Wednesday evening and Saturday morning Ground Class.  The seminar is free of charge as we feel it is important for all students to improve their ground techniques. 

If you are interested in attending, please register via email or at the front desk.

In appreciation for all our parents and the amazing things they do for their children, we are offering them a parents' night out.  This event will take place on Friday November 9 from 5:30-8:00pm.  

All they have to do is drop their children off at our school where they will be safe and having a great time.  The children will be doing physical activities and playing games. We will provide all the food  and refreshments at no cost to our parents.  All we ask is that the parents take some time for themselves and have fun, because they deserve it!

If you would like your child to participate in the Parents' Night Out, please register at the front desk. 

Thank you again for all you do!
