    Great technical BJJ taught at all levels, from beginner to advanced. Everybody there is always friendly and willing to help out, also having several black belts that train there helps.

    I am currently in Maine but will be relocating to Redmond
    Wash. I am a purple belt in MMA and was looking for employment w/ your gym as an MMA instructor which I have been for several years. Hopefully, you will have an opportunity for me but just in case perhaps you could recommend other gyms that might be looking for someone w/ my capabilies, knowledge and commitment in the field of MMA. Look forward to hearing from you and – I thank you.
