I started training with Kurt nearly 5 years ago, because I was out of shape and looking for something more dynamic than weight training and running. I had trained a few times at another BJJ gym and was discouraged, as they didn’t take the time to show me the basics. They would teach a move but wouldn’t show me how to get to the position in the first place. Once I started training with Kurt and his staff, all of this changed. I learned the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from the ground up. Kurt has a way to break down the basics of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in such a way that anyone can learn it. He and his staff also incorporate the physical aspect of training, where I lost over 40 pounds in the first six months of training with Kurt. He also has a way of keeping class fun and exciting.
