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.
I love training here. Whether it's an early morning open mat or an afternoon class the intructor and students are always very welcoming. The enviroment is very relaxed and Phil makes it very easy to learn fundamental moves as well as more complex moves.
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!
Phil Cardella is a fantastic instructor. He is highly technical, and his attention to detail is out of this world. I only wish I could train with him more. If you're in the area, and are not training with Phil, you're missing out.
