Policies:

Students must be at least 13 years of age.  Instructor candidates must be at least 18 years of age.

Everyone who wants to learn is always welcome.

Everyone will be treated with respect.

Each student is taught based on their individual abilities.

Strengths will be made stronger and under developed areas will be strengthened.

No one gets hurt.  Aggressive behavior shows a lack of respect for your training partners, and a lack of willingness to properly control and execute a technique.

Overly aggressive individuals will be asked to leave.

There are no secret tricks.  Anyone can become proficient.  Determination and dedication are a must.  You must want to do this and have the discipline to train.  I can show you how to do it; but, only you can do it.

Keep in mind everyone loses.  Someone who quits never gets better.

  • Uniforms - CKM/GJJ t-shirts, GJJ gi 
  • Grappling/MMA bag gloves
  • Cup/groin protector
  • Mouth piece
  • Eye protection
