I have been practicing BJJ here for almost 3 years and I’m going to give you my honest opinion about it. I am 40+ with a busy job and family to take care of so on most days, after everything is done, the last thing I would feel like doing is to go to a “goodlife” type gym to run like a hamster on a treadmill and pump weights so my skinny jeans fit tightly. I initially though BJJ would be a more interesting way to improve my physical fitness. Training BJJ has not only done that, but has also improved my mental fitness and stress coping mechanisms. As a result, I’ve never looked and felt better, and been more confident about defending myself and my family if the need were to ever arise.

One thing that influenced my decision to train here is that the BJJ classes are run by the owner himself. I had tried out classes at several other BJJ facilities in the area and NONE of them were taught someone who had more at stake, had more experience, was more professional than Joel Gerson. The other BJJ instructors are highly skilled are just as gifted at teaching. I have found RevMMA to be a good fit for me mostly because it’s a friendly, non-competitive environment.
