Matt is a master of Gi grips. He will show you ways to pin your opponent using the cloth that seem so simple you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of them before. Want to make your Jiu-jitsu actually translate into “the gentle art”? Come to Matt’s classes and truly absorb that technique prevails over brute strength. Matt is a black belt from Mata Leo and we are super thrilled to have him in our roster of coaches.
Wally started training in BJJ in 2010. What started as a mission to cover the hole in his ground game grew into a full blown addiction to grappling. Wally has earned his purple belt in BJJ and is thrilled to have the chance to further work his ground skills and continue to integrate them into the bigger martial picture.
Tym brings the gentle art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu to the people. Because, seriously, that’s what jiu-jitsu means… gentle art – and when you do it right, when you’re not doing grr-jitsu, but when you’re actually doing jiu-jitsu – that is when you make Tym proud.
