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!
