Hear it from our parents.

“I did EXTENSIVE research to find the perfect Brazilian jiu-jitsu gym for my three kids and this is where I landed. After visiting five or six different dojos, I learned the qualities in one’s character that help one achieve black belt do not necessarily make one good with kids. Thank God I found Bay Jiu-jitsu on Yelp. Sensei Stephan is actually a credentialed teacher and knows kids and how they think. His lessons appeal to their attention spans and developmental level.”

Mother of Three

“I’ve been training here at Bay Jiu-Jitsu since 2011 and love it. No egos, friendly people, and good mix of men and women as well as people of all ages and goals. I shopped around quite a bit for a BJJ gym, and once I landed here I knew I’d found where I wanted to train.”

“I was feeling nervous my first day, but the students were so friendly that I felt like I had knew them from long ago. They all helped me, and made sure that I was not left out. The students and the instructor were very helpful. My first choice.”

“I took my first ever jiu-jitsu class here with Stephan and it was a blast! I have to admit, I was pretty intimidated at first having no prior experience, but Stephan made me feel very at ease and was an amazing teacher. Everyone in the class was so friendly and encouraging. Oh and did I mention this is an amazing workout? I workout regularly (run, spin, hike), but this definitely worked some new muscles. I would absolutely recommend coming here!”
