There are amazing leaders coaching at this gym…all providing great impact for our kids AND our entire family. Strong, confident, and positive environment.

Both of my kiddos started with Grit in the Summer of 2023. It has been such an amazing experience for them! The teachers are incredible and I’ve seen so much growth, both personal growth and in the sport, in the short time they’ve been there! I can’t say enough good things about Prof Sam and his coaches!

My wife and I have been bringing our 5 year old daughter to classes for the last couple months and it’s been such a great experience. The instructors are great with the kids, and after trying several different sports and activities, we’ve finally found something that our daughter is excited about amd looks forward to.

Enrolled my 9 year old several months ago and it has been a great way for him to gain confidence, discipline and be challenged. Coach Elizabeth and Malachi maintain a well structured class that ensures each kid is able to succeed.


We love Grit! Professor SAm and the team are all so amazing. His calm and clear way of teaching the art has had a big impact on me and my son and we are both learning and progressing. Thank you, Sir!

Come check out Grit!

Grit is amazing. Our whole family does jujitsu and it has helped us in so many ways. Professor Sam is one of a kind and all the coaches are so great with the kids and the adult classes are so fun!

Highly recommend

I was up from San Diego visiting family and dropped in to a gi class. Professor Sam was awesome and I had a great time with everyone there. Highly recommend this school to anyone who is in the area!

Started coming to this gym 6 weeks ago and since then I’ve lost 16 pounds. Very friendly community of people and a great way to get a workout in, plus you gain the knowledge on how to defend yourself if the need ever arises. It’s a great place and if you are interested, you can drop in for a free class

Enrolling both my kids in classes comes with a significant cost, making it a substantial investment for our family. However, it holds great importance to me that my children acquire skills that can potentially protect their lives and develop the ability to remain confident in physically demanding situations.

Considering my personal history and experience with traumatic assault, it means the world to me that they are learning strategic reactions to physical challenges posed by others. Furthermore, they genuinely enjoy the classes and have great respect for the instructors. Jiu Jitsu, being a lifelong martial art, offers boundless opportunities for growth and improvement…and my kids wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
