"The atmosphere is easygoing and everybody looks out for one another to avoid injuries. John is an excellent teacher, his instruction is very clear and he is able to breakdown complex moves in a manner all can understand and follow. I felt I was making amazing progress from day one."
- Milan Modelo
After only a few months of learning BJJ, I've felt I've picked up new skills and techniques quickly thanks to such a welcoming and supportive group. John has definitely succeeded in creating a safe, collaborative, and enjoyable learning environment for beginners, all coloured belts, and ladies too!
- Sarah Hardy
"More than techniques John explains you the biomechanical logic everyone should have to practice BJJ. All the practitioners I have met are very kind and we all practice in a very friendly environment. I strongly recommend this school."
- Elefterios Chalkiadakis
"Truly an excellent place to learn and train jiu jitsu. There is such a welcoming and positive vibe here. Our coach, John, is very attentive to each individual and is very supportive. Everybody else is also very helpful and accommodating even to newbies."

“It was such a shame I didn’t find John and Higher Jiu Jitsu sooner. John cares for his students’ well-being and longevity in their training like no other. Through mindful movement, John explores the avenues of posture, breathing, and bodily organization, guiding his clients a long a path of higher awareness, martial arts, and above all, life. OSS”
— Leon Comino
