Designed to introduce newcomers to the basics of standing and ground grappling, and provides a foundation of Gracie jiu-jitsu’s sport and self-defense aspects to make the transition to Advanced GJJ a smooth one. A typical class includes a thorough warm-up, followed by technical instruction and live rolling. This is offered during all of our classes.
I always enjoy training at Phil Cardella's school when I visit northern Florida. The atmosphere is personal and friendly, Phil's lessons are detailed and insightful, and I always leave happy to have visited, excited to return.
Best thing I have done for my daughters!
Phil Cardella is one great Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Professor. He is one proven person in the field of Martial Arts, if I m not mistaken he is a US Army Combatives Instructor, MIxed Martial Arts Veteran and a Relson Gracie Black Belt. Besides all of that he is one human being, he is a true friend and always gives you a hand when one needs it. My Jiu Jitsu foundation is from him. This academy is highly recommended!
