NWJJA: The Best Training Period

Hands down the best training crew one could ask for.  From L-R: Shadow / Eric "The Dark Mountain" Montenegro / Brian "Mr. BJJ" Johnson (our fearless leader) / The Best Looking Wrist Locking Expert This Side of the Mississippi / Denise Holcomb (Brian's first black belt) / Justin Guyer.

If you are in the Pacific NW and are NOT training at NW Jiu Jitsu Academy, then stop by and experience the difference.  Quite simply accept no substitutes!

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Grappling Lessons Available in Seattle, WA.

Wanted to remind my loyal readership, and let anyone new to the Seattle, WA. metro area know that I am happy to offer private and semi-private instruction in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  With over 20 years of martial arts experience (the past 8 being solely dedicated to BJJ) I focus each lesson on attaining the students individual goals within the greater context of improving their grappling skill set.  A brown belt under Brian J. Johnson at the NW Jiu Jitsu Academy, I also draw upon the teachings of Tim Cartmell both of which have had the greatest influence on me and I attribute 98% of what I know to these men.

I have also had the fortune to train with some amazing grapplers including all five of the Machado brothers; Rener Gracie; Alberto Crane; Anderson Silva; Fabio Santos; Anotonio Noguiera; David Meyer; John Will; Marcelo Garcia; Roy Harris; Saulo Ribiero; Jeff Glover; Rafael Lovato Jr etc.  Needless to say I have many great influences and try to bring all my experiences including an extensive competition record to every roll I engage in on the mat.
