Due to its increasingly widespread popularity, Jiu-Jitsu is highly respected within the martial arts community. The fundamental principles of Jiu-Jitsu are applicable to real-life scenarios. In addition to developing self-defense skills, Jiu-Jitsu promotes a happier and healthier lifestyle.

"Being under Shane's tutelage taught me that confidence can be built from within with discipline and the right amount of skills. He is awesome!"

Nathan C.

"I was bullied when I transferred schools a few years ago. I met Shane through my friend who is also taking martial arts lessons under him. Now, I am better able to handle any situation that would more likely become another bullying and turn it around."

Peter A.

"My 8 year old son has enjoyed his time under the teaching of Shane. His patience in handling the kids is remarkable. I am sure he will have no problem getting more students of the younger generation. I wish him all the best in his future plans. Thank you Shane!"
