1- No Experience Necessary: My structure all beginner so that you can start at any time without any previous experience. Regardless of your age, athletic ability, or skill level, you will be able to execute the techniques on your very first day.


2 - Maximum Mat Time: With several group classes available per week, students are able to get the most amount of training time for a most reasonable price.


3 - Different Body Types: In a street fight, you will not be allowed to choose your opponent. In group classes, you will have the opportunity to practice your techniques on training partners of various body types, and this will ensure your readiness for whatever comes your way.



1 - Personal Attention: The techniques taught in group classes and private classes are the same. The difference is that when you are training one-on-one with an instructor, he/she will give you immediate feedback regarding your technical execution since he/she knows precisely how it is supposed to feel. In a group lesson, unless you have a very attentive training partner, you may make a mistake and not realize it, and this may lead to the development of bad habits.


2 - Linear Learning: Although the group classes require no previous experience, it has been proven that the order in which you learn the techniques greatly affects the time it takes you to master the art. In private lessons, your instructor will present the techniques in the optimum order.


3 - Flexible Schedule: In general, private lessons can be scheduled at any time, day or night, no matter how crazy your schedule may be, you will always be able to get your weekly dose of Jiu-Jitsu.


4 - Minimum Time, Maximum Results: Whether you only have 30 days to train before you are deployed, or you are traveling from halfway around the world to spend one week at a Academy Training Center, private classes will enable you to get the most amount of knowledge in the least amount of time.


5 - Quick Boost: If you regularly attend the group classes and want to tighten up on a few jiu-jitsu Combatives techniques or get ready for a test, you can schedule a one-time private class to give you a boost.


6 - Disability: If you or a loved one have a physical or mental disability that could get in the way from benefiting fully in a group class setting, private classes are a great option since the instructor will be able to modify the techniques to accommodate special needs.
