    “Very supportive instructors & great team atmosphere”

    The 630AM class is my favorite way to start the day, and I like how I am learning the same techniques as the later classes. It’s the best academy in the valley with the most positive coaches.

    “I highly recommend this gym... ”

    My son began training here at GD BJJ just under a month ago, and we have been quite impressed. We have felt like apart of the family since the minute we walked in…Every teacher has been incredibly helpful. I highly recommend this gym!
