Best school I have ever trained at in my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey. Luiz Palhares is a great teacher and true friend to all his students. I miss training here daily and can hardly wait for my next visit.

Great place to learn Jiu-Jitsu.  Master Luiz is very knowledgeable and experienced as well as great to learn from.  Professor Pedro is also highly knowledgeable. The entire team is very welcoming and great to train with.  You can't beat this school.

(Kyle  LaLaValley)

Checked out the No Gi class: loved it. Mr. Palhares's son is an excellent and knowledgeable instructor.  Friendly and welcoming atmosphere for newbies as well as advanced practitioners. In my opinion, this is as good as it gets in north Florida when it comes to learning Gracie jiu-jitsu.

(Eric Gibson)

Amazing first impression. I can’t wait to sign up and become a regular here. 

Military discount too :)

I tried several bjj school in Jax when I moved here but when I tried this one I knew it was the best. I've been here ever since! Excellent training, great people!

This is my bjj home. Love the instruction, as well as the instructors and team..We were instantly family and that is something you don't find very often..
