What Our Students Are Saying 


Brandon and Emera make training bjj a lot of fun! Brandon thoroughly explains the mechanics of a move and potential counters. Emera is such a fun training partner and provides helpful feedback. They’re both very passionate and knowledgeable about the sport!

Melissa M.

I have trained with Emera for some time now, her and Brandon were the first people to introduce me to Jiu Jitsu; which is now a key piece of my life. I have gained so much confidence in my abilities through this sport and community that comes with it. Emera specifically, is a wonderful athlete to train with and has helped me progress on my journey. It is encouraging to see another woman and mother on the mats who is very skilled at what she does.

Meg M.

Brandon and Emera are extremely dedicated and hardworking coaches. Training under them has provided an unrivaled sense of humility. I encourage anyone who seeks a real challenge to check out this community they have constructed.
