There is nothing better than a supportive and inclusive community, GB RSM provides that for both kids and adults. The instructors are world class in jiu jitsu and at the same time down to earth. They are friendly and are able to communicate details in a very digestible manner. We moved to RSM a year ago because of the sense of community it provides and GB RSM has provided that for both my son and I. Jiu Jitsu is something that becomes a big part of your life and spending that time with amazing people makes every second enjoyable!

Kevin Donovan

I’ve been training at this school over 3 years now and I really enjoy it. They have classes for the entire family, kids, teens adults, and paren & child. They also have a women’s only program taught by a female instructor. In addition to jiu-jitsu classes, they offer conditioning classes and a competition class. They host workshops and self defense classes. Not to mention all the fun activities they host for the kids all year round. I also recommend taking private or semi private lessons with their experienced professors to improve your skills. Since I started training here, I have gotten in great shape and have made a lot of friends. This is not just a school, it’s a tight knit family and community.

Martha Franks

Whether you're 8 or 58, this is a great place to train. My son and I both train here and we really enjoy it. It's a good physical and mental workout which is why I like this far better than going to a gym. The instructors and students are all very kind, and patient. I encourage kids, mom's, and dad's to give it a try, it's a lot of fun!

Ted Halsey

The instructors at GB not only teach my 6 year old son BJJ, they also have taught him respect for himself and others. I would definitely recommend this facility to any adult or anyone with children, it's a place for everyone.

Joe Mogush

One of the best Gracie gym out there. A lot of great professors and plenty of room for all the students to learn. The professors truly care about their students. My son loves it here and has made a lot of new friends. There's a lot of kids for my son to train with, which is great. It's definitely one big family at this location. I highly recommend it.

BJJ techniques allow individuals to neutralize and control opponents without relying on size or strength, making it suitable for individuals of all ages and body types.

Will I need any special equipment or gear to start Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

While it's common for BJJ academies to provide loaner or rental equipment for beginners, you will eventually need to invest in a few essential items. These typically include a BJJ gi (uniform), a mouthguard, and protective gear like knee pads or rash guards. Your academy can guide you on the specific requirements.

Advancement in belt rank is typically determined through regular evaluations conducted by qualified instructors.
