“I found this place through a friend about two years ago and had no idea how hooked I would become. This is my first martial art ever and I cannot get enough. The people at Evolve are amazing and have become family. No matter your skill level the classes are beneficial to all. There are a few instructors allowing a variety of teaching methods and all of them are good at tailoring the class to ensure everyone is growing on their Jiu Jitsu journey.”

“I joined a year ago with my 5 and 7-year-old boys. My oldest boy was scared to get in the middle of the soccer scrum before joining and now he’s throwing arm bars and competing. He’s confidence and strength are through the roof, but importantly so are his respect and kindness. My youngest was always rough and tumble, but now he’s focused and disciplined without losing any joy. Both getting good grades and self-motivated.
I myself am in better shape than since before we had our kids. I am so far ahead of my 1 year ago self in so many ways. I’m not a long time athlete. Just a dad who works in an office. Now I share this great gentle art with my kids. And the guys (and gals) at the gym are the kindest most humble badasses you’ll ever meet. You feel welcomed and like you fit in from day 1. Coach Todd is the man. Fun, tough, goofy, approachable and a great human. He takes a lot of pride in what he has built. Lastly – He’s great with the kids. GREAT. Probably his strongest attribute. Professor Marcelo and his son Joao are both gentle, warm-hearted beasts. They come from legendary lineage in BJJ and bring a sense of fundamentals and belonging to the place. With these two representing the gym and giving instruction on most nights, you are in the heart of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
This is not a fringe club, this is a member club of one of the most esteemed international teams “CheckMat” and coach Todd, Professor Marcelo and coach Joao pass down this legacy well…but more importantly, it’s just a bunch of great people enjoying each other and being better than they were the day before. So yea, 5 Perfect well-rounded approaches for kids. Perfect culture for me.“
