I am honoured to be part of this team, Sensei Wagner is very helpful and patient.
Positive, hard working atmosphere, everybody is super friendly and genuinely cares about your progress as a student. Professor is a great teacher and a nice dude
By far the best place to learn BJJ in the south east! I can't express how good Wagner is as a professor and how supportive the rest of the team is.
Second to none, fantastic teacher who is able to adapt to the needs and capability of the student. Also he actively demonstrates competence in the art and warrior spirit through competition. The Professor and fellow students are committed to the well being of each other as well as furthering the art.
Amazing place with great team, and most of all, one of the best professors with a third degree black belt you could ask for! Never thought bjj would be so fun for both men and women at all ages!! Highly recommended
Brilliant instruction in a safe, fun and relaxed environment. I highly recommend Wagner and Brazilian jiu jitshu as a great way to get fit, learn a practical self defence skill and meet a nice team.
I just regret that I didn't meet professor sooner...honest man and a friend with a clear perspective and great team that will support you any time...highly recommended

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.
