This class will teach the student how to submit and position people without the use of different grips of the Gi. This is the fighting style typically used during MMA matches, and in some tournaments. It is recommended that the student begins his/her training with Gi classes; as it is more technical, and will give the student a solid foundation for a smooth transition.
Great school! I really enjoyed training here while I was vacationing in St.Augustine.
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!
I was visiting from out of town. They treated me like part of the team. Super fun environment with great instruction. Can’t recommend them enough
