  • “I first spoke to Rob in October 2009 when I was looking for a BJJ Dojo for my Brother in law to train while visiting from Spain. Rob seemed happy to welcome a foreign visitor to train. He also invited me to try a couple classes. I excepted Rob’s invitation even though I was almost forty and thought I was to old to start training in a martial art. It took about twenty minutes of my first class to realize that I was hooked and haven’t looked back yet.

    I should also mention that I have Rheumatoid arthritis and even though it is well managed I still have some bad days and mobility issues. Rob and his teaching staff have been very accommodating in allowing me to work at a slower pace at times. I AM NOT lying when I say that BJJ has helped make me stronger both physically and mentally. I cant imagine training anywhere other than the Bushido Jiu Jitsu Academy.

    If you are someone who feels that you are too old or maybe you don’t think you are healthy enough to train, Give Rob a call. Stretch your self. It is working for me.”
