  • 5 star review  Great BJJ gym!! That was my first gym since I got in Waterford, and I am glad for it. Wagner is a great professor, very knowledgeable and with a competitive mind for those of us focused on that. The team is also great, everyone is very friendly and a great team to be part of. It is recommended for the beginners and also for the advanced. 🙂
