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 students 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.
