I started training in the martial arts in 1987, so I’ve experienced a number of styles, schools, and instructors. These guys are 1000% legit straight from the Gracie lineage and they really know how to teach. I’ve been working with Dante since June 2016, and couldn’t be happier with his knowledge, abilities, and willingness to share…
I’ve known Dante since 2012 when he started training my twin daughters at the age of 5 in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. He has an excellent approach in teaching young kids, having fun while learning, which has kept my daughters and I coming back for 6 years now. The progress my daughters have made here, in school, and in life in general has been phenomenal!
