I’ve been to several BJJ gyms and Vanguard is the mostly friendly place I have ever trained. If you are hesitant about checking it out, don’t be. I had an 11 year break in training and was uneasy about getting started again. The coaches and team mates were super supportive right from the beginning and Jiu Jitsu has become a lifestyle again. Vanguard is a great place to train and learn and everyone is super respectful. Highly recommended.George Battistelli Jr.
