Rodrigo on the Spruce Grove Examiner

We have programs for all ages and skill levels:

“I am happy to be able to learn BJJ from such a great teacher! Rodrigo cares about his students, and keeps the training fun. Best of all, I am in better shape now than I was 10 years ago.”

Jonathan Leicht (45 years, White belt)

“I like Jiu-Jitsu because it is fun! Jiu-Jitsu is an awesome martial art! It makes me feel more confident, and teaches me self control. Jiu-Jitsu also teaches how to be respectful, and makes me happy. Sensei Rodrigo is a terrific teacher!”

Alek Nielsen (8 years old)

“Studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Rodrigo Resende has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done in my life. In the past two years I have massively improved my fitness and made numerous friends. Nothing motivates me to get out and exercise like BJJ does.”

Russell Timmerman (45 years old, Blue belt)
