At 2nd Gear Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, we believe that greatness begins with the first step.

Fitness level, age, gender… None of those things matter more than the willingness to begin. There are kids that have started as young as three and adults that began in their 60s if not older. It’s an incredible martial art that relies on far more than just physical prowess. It will allow you harness what is unique about you into your own expression of the art.

That’s why so many fall in love with it.

Every day, there’s a new opportunity to improve and grow, and every day, you’ll run into new interesting problems that can be solved on the mat.

And guess what?

That’s not all you can expect.

If you’re willing to embrace that challenge, many other rewards will be yours. In fact, let’s spell out a few:

  • You’ll achieve a level of fitness that just sneaks up on you one day. (The pursuit of skill can easily distract you from the tedium of exercise.)
  • You’ll gain a skill set that holds the potential of making any enemy suffer bitter regret. (When weapons aren’t involved, there is no better way to end a fight than the choke. When done right, it works on everyone.)
  • You’ll build many interpersonal relations. (There’s no tighter bond than the one that forms from pushing each other to the limit.)

Anyway.

To learn more, fill out the form below to schedule a free private lesson.

Or not.

It’s entirely up to you.

But know that this decision could have a profound effect on your life.

Great mat space, the mats are also extra thick which is nice. Ken's instruction during regular classes is top notch. He also runs ��� advanced sessions for competitors training for upcoming tournaments!!!

Kenneth is an insanely talented BJJ player and thinks differently than a lot of other's on the mat. Train with him any chance you get and always take a chance to pick his brain.

More than simply a talented BJJ Black Belt, Kenneth seems to approach martial arts as a passion, as an art to be perfected, as well as science to be experimented.An amazing martial artist! Kenneth is also member of the LionHeart Initiative team which aims to develop BJJ & MMA In Africa as means to create opportunities for local athletes. In 2016, Kenneth traveled to Africa where he offered free seminars in support of this movement.

Kenneth is an excellent instructor and the curriculum has been well thought out. Beginners aren't thrown to the wolves in regular classes, they are given instruction on fundamental movements that will be the building blocks for their journey. Highly recommended gym!

Kenneth is an incredibly intelligent BJJ practitioner and very effective teaching. He seems to never stop learning, even though has a lot of knowledge already. Highly recommend anyone to check out his classes. If you're new to the art, I don't think you may realize how good of instructor and competitor Kenny is.
