Chris Marquez: Just show up to class everytime.

One of the best parts about running a company serving jiu-jitsu players is the incredible stories we hear from our customers.

We love Chris' story because of his bravery to serve and protect his country and his inspiring BJJ journey to overcome PTSD.

Tell us about your best (or worst) submission story.

I was pretty proud of myself when I went from triangle to omoplata and tapped my partner
