    Efrain is a thoughtful and passionate martial artist. He has great enthusiasm for the art and well as practical self defense application of jiu jitsu. I would recommend Efrain to anyone looking for self defense skills, wrestling take downs, striking or BJJ techniques.

    Coach Efrain is a knowledgeable, patient, and kind instructor. He teaches martial arts holistically, emphasizing philosophy, technique, and real life application. Coach Efrain also meets each individual student where s/he is at - building on the student's strengths and differentiating instruction to address any challenges. I definitely progressed under his tutelage and highly recommend Coach Efrain to anyone of any age/skill level interested in jiu jitsu, striking, wrestling, self defense, and/or mixed martial arts.
