This class explores a broad range of techniques and positions while still keeping to its core roots of basic GJJ. Designed for the student to learn more complex grappling, throwing, clinching and submission techniques. Students can then take what they learn and enter local competitions, where they will be judged on the advanced techniques they’ve learned to use naturally. All of our classes are designed for all ranks.
Phil Cardela is a technical Black Belt who has been in the game for a very long time. I have had the pleasure of training with him and watching him excel as both a coach and competitor. I highly recommend that anyone from kids to adults to train at his academy!
I'm very new to Florida and even newer to bjj and Phil and everyone at the gym treat me like family. Couldn't be happier with my decision to come here and work out. I drive over an hour both ways because this place is so nice and friendly.
We've been going here for my daughter's BJJ classes for almost 3 years now...she still loves it! Laura is very attentive to the entire business aspect such as ease of registration and notification of events, and Phil has a style of teaching that always keep the kids engaged! He motivates them every class and includes life lessons that are used on and off the mats. My 7 year old daughter's ability to quickly make decisions and follow directions has improved so much and I credit these classes! I love the bully-proof teachings too for the school age kids, and how they are able to think and respond to a bullying situation not just to protect themselves, but also those around them. I'm so grateful Phil and Laura are part of our community!
