I started attending Robert’s BJJ classes in late 2012. I had joined because I wanted to get a better understanding for how the submission game works. As a huge MMA fan, I decided I no longer wanted to be an armchair fan, but instead wanted to develop a first-hand understanding. Rob’s classes were not what I had expected. I expected a class filled with alpha males who were all there to submit others and build their egos. Rob’s classes are nowhere near that. He emphasizes patience and safety. Rob treats his classes like a “lab”, where egos are checked at the door, or you can find another gym. The club has an excellent atmosphere, and everyone is respected.
