A Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu school tends to be an extenstion of your family, or fills the void where no family currently exists. GB Pasadena creates the environment where your training partners feel more like friends than grappling dummies. I have trained at Brazillian Jiu-JItsu and MMA schools across the country, and many in Southern California. GB Pasadena stands out as a paramount example of how to teach competitors to win, everyday people the fundamentals for effective self-defense and most of all how to treat people better. Amongst all of the members of GB Pasadena, I feel that everyone there respects the sport of BJJ as much as they respect each other while they are training.
