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.
Phil is a world class Jiu-Jitsu instructor with direct lineage to Helio and Relson Gracie. I highly recommend training with Phil if you live in St. Augustine. He is the best!!!
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!
Visiting St Augustine from New Jersey. Had a great time training with Phil and my fellow students. Phil made me feel right at home, and his instruction is top notch. I highly recommend it!
