    Having already bought some of Michaels BJJ videos, I realized his level of teaching and conveying the lesson in a simple and easy to follow matter was very impressive. Immediately i realized if i wanted to learn his system to the core I would have to learn from his academy under his supervision. At the time Michael was very selective of who he taught and the amount of students he would take at any given time. I continued to communicate and he was extremely generous with his knowledge. He then recently sent me an e-mail wich changed my life telling me about how he was going to teach to the public once again. I attended the class with certain expectations, the expectations were surpassed by a huge vast, I pass 7 gyms to attend Smash and have not looked back, my understanding of BJJ, has gone so deep, Michael Jen has a true gift of both teaching and listening.With his keen observation he quickly deciphers any problems in ones technique before they translate into bad habits.His passion is felt in the way he displays each motion, and with his knowledge of body motion and posture he can translate this message in very easy to understand language, no intimidation just lots of confidence in each of his teachings.The gyms offers other programs, krav-maga, cardio kickboxing, zumba, mma, and kids bjj classes, I am sure you will be extremely impressed as I and my friends eagerly await for the clock to turn 7:00 pm to train and learn. I hope this is helpful to any potential new members.

    Let me start by saying this is by far the best decision that i have made in my life. I go to Jiujitsu everyday because of the great people and the great instruction by Michael Jen. Michael has the most excellent and technical teaching style that you cannot find anywhere else. I would recommend this place to anyone who is interested at trying jiujitsu for the first time or someone advanced looking for a great place to train. Also the KIDS jiujitsu program is by far the BEST for the little ones. Not only does it give the great exercise but teaches them discipline and good sportsmanship. So do what i did, try the free week of Jiujitsu and see if you like it, which i am 100% sure you will!
