Timothy Leavy was one of our first students to train with us 15 years ago. Timothy Leavy started his training in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu when he was 8 years old. He has competed in many events all across the country and had numerous national titles in AAU, NAGA, Grapplers Quest, among others. When he was 13 years old he was not able to continue his training, though Timothy kept in contact with Coach Speight, last year he started his journey again with dedication and determination.
We are proud of what Timothy has done and look forward to what he has in the future.read more →

We have listened to our students and have extended our classes to Friday nights. On Fridays at 6pm we will be having No-Gi Grappling MMA. Bring your small MMA gloves. And at 7pm we will be having our Thai Kickboxing Classes. Normally during the summer months when the college students go home, for the summer, our attendance will takes a hit.

We would really like to thank Andrew Smith for putting on a great seminar Saturday. We all learned so much and hope it isn’t another 10 years before he will be back. Here are some Pictures of the seminar.
10 years ago Andrew Smith did a seminar at our academy when he was a Purple Belt and James Speight was a Blue belt. Jay was 11 years old at that time. There are things Andrew shared with us back 10 years ago that we are still using on a daily basis. The information Andrew shared with us Saturday will be useful for decades to come. If you missed this you missed something good. Get with your partners at the gym and hope you can catch up.read more →
