  • My son is enrolled in BJJ from Fabricio Amaral. He has received the best training around. He not only is developing his athletic skills but also very valuable life skills. Fabricio cares greatly for all of the students and families that watch. He is a wonderful role model and you can see the impact he has had on his students that have been with him a while. They all are as caring and determined as Fabricio. They all take the time to help each other on techniques and suggestions. Don’t get me wrong, Fabricio pushes his students hard and expects great things from each and every one of them. Nothing comes easy or free. He simply does it in a very positive and mentoring way. He seems to have a way of motivating everyone from four year olds to 40 year olds. My son loves training there and that says a lot.

  • Jason Foucha says:

    I only got to spend a few sessions with Fabricio due to other martial arts obligations, but from day one they make you feel welcome and part of the family. I greatly enjoyed my time there, and you get plenty of hands on time with the instructor. He is very hands on and treats you like an equal. You learn so much so fast ands it’s surprising how much sticks with you. I can not say enough great stuff about this gym and highly recommend it!

  • Daniel Rivas says:

    My son Dillon has been training with Fabricio Amaral for about a year and a half. Wow, what a great guy he has not only taught Dillon Jiu Jitsu, but also the lessons in respect not only for others but for himself. His self-esteem is off the charts. I would gladly recommmend this gym to anyone looking for real Jiu Jitsu training- This is not just a babysitting class, this is the real thing, but don’t take my word for it check it out for yourself.

  • Jason Stephens says:

    I have been training with Fabricio for over 2 years and it’s been a great experience. Most impressed with Fabricio first being a teacher. Anyone (even kids) thinking about trying Brazillian Jiu Jitsu – I could not recommend a better place to start. For those with experience, the same applies. Keep up the good work Fabricio and many many thanks for opening your gym and attracting quality students. It’s nice to be part of a very competive BJJ team with a top notch instructor.

  • Brent Baker says:

    I have been training with Fabricio for 4 years. I can’t think of a better teacher nor have I experience a better instructor. This is a family oriented gym but with very high standards for achieving your goals. Whatever your skill level may be, Fabricio will make you better. This is a great gym with a great group of individuals that will become your good friends.
