Neutral Grounds is a Nut Free Zone
Please remember that we are a Peanut and Tree Nut Free school.

Close contact with someone who has peanuts or tree nuts on their hands or mouth before class has the potential to affect our allergic students.

Please refrain from bringing such snacks into the academy. Our students who are severely allergic to all nuts thank you!
JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT ONLY  WHITE BLUE  and  BLACK  GIs ARE ALLOWED TO BE WORN WHILE TRAINING AT NEUTRAL GROUNDS.

Thank you for your cooperation!
PHOTO OF THE MONTH!
This month's Photo of the Month is completely selfish and probably only excites Coach Aaron and Adri, but here goes! This is the day our daughter, Savannah returned to Jiu-Jitsu after a 16 month "break"!

She came back the day of Prof. Evaldo's seminar and she had a blast! She would absolutely die (or kill me) if she knew I was featuring her in our Newsletter, but she'll never see it! Haha!

Now let's all say a prayer that she sticks with it! #fingerscrossed
Check out our latest party review:

"Oh my gosh- that was most likely the best birthday party the kids have ever had! The adults also enjoyed it by watching the kids have so much fun. Coach Bobby is amazing... I did almost nothing which is very unusual for me. Lillian was still talking about it for 2 days and from what her friends’ parents told me, their kids talked about it afterwards too! Thank you so much!"--Michelle M.
