"About three and a half years ago, Anand suggested that Aadi do some form of martial art. I was against it because I thought it would encourage him to go ham and start hitting people but then he explained Brazilian jiu jitsu to me. I was fully ready to refuse it until we went to our very first lesson. Wow. All of us were hooked. My hyper little guy started to focus, be attentive and respectful and genuinely enjoy learning.
Professor Rodrigo nurtured Aadi into being competitive, tenacious, disciplined and to still have a kindness about him. Michelle is all heart and makes the place shine.
Coach Manny, we will never forget your cool skateboarding tricks and double Adi will hopefully learn some of his own. Coach Gabriel - you have a gift with children and it’s amazing that you were with aadi on his first and last class.
Coach Lanna - keep that ship running smooth
Coach Summer and Coach Kathleen - thank you for being such kind and yet firm female role models for my little savage."
