My 9 y/o son has been going to SBG SoCal close to year. This was the best decision we made coming to SBG. Coach John is not only an outstanding practitioner, but the life lessons Coach John teaches and shares to the student has always been OUTSTANDING!!

...everything is explained in detail, with great patience, perfect articulation and with great attention to the details. I never felt intimidated and all the higher belts make an effort to make you feel welcomed and go out of their way to make sure you are doing the drills correctly.

The instructors at SBG SoCal are exceptional at not just teaching about the technical aspects of jiu jitsu but about life in general. My daughter has been taking BJJ here for a little over 3 years. I have seen the positive impact it has had on her confidence and has propelled her to try new things.

From walking into the gym until leaving I always feel welcome and most importantly safe. I've been injured more than once doing BJJ, but since coming to SBG I have no fear of someone holding a submission for too long or spazzing out.

SBG has an incredible Foundations class which allows new students to learn the fundamental movements in BJJ in a structured safe manner. I'm so grateful to have met Jon, Marco, Peter and the rest of the instructors it's wonderful to know that there is a place where I can learn jiu jitsu without (getting injured)!

Honestly, I have nothing to compare this place to, but from my experience, it's awesome. The atmosphere is welcoming, family friendly, and non-intimidating. The coaches are the friendliest people you will ever meet, funny, knowledgeable, patient, and understanding.

My kids started training almost a year ago, then my husband started, and I finally did my first class in March. I would recommend this place to anybody, and quite frequently do! SBG SoCal feels like family, I love it there!

Jon was a notable and positive influence on our son. Getting his black belt was one of his most notable achievements to date. Thanks Jon!
