Here is the update for today, take note there are a few important additions including dates for Summer Camp, Beach Workout, Pilsung Seminar, Tournament and more…
We would like to welcome Mr. Don Worrell as an instructor for our Friday Night Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class. Mr. Worrell is not only a BJJ Black Belt, with over a decade of experience, but is also a 3rd Dan Tang Soo Do black belt and former student under the late Master Louis Marvil. Mr Worrell is an excellent instructor and an all around great person. TEAM RMAI welcomes him.
For those who may or not be aware, we have a Beginner BJJ program for those 12 and older, this class is currently on Fridays at 5:00pm.
If the program grows, we may expand to other days and times. Students who are already training in our martial arts programs can add this membership for only $50 per month. This is a great opportunity to expand you martial arts knowledge to include grappling and ground fighting to be a more complete martial artist.
