A few of our delighted students:
“Being a brand new female student to Brazilian Jiujitsu with no background in fighting I found Higher Jiujitsu the perfect place to begin! The community is so awesome and loads of fun. In my very first class I felt welcomed immediately. John is a fantastic and experienced teacher. My confidence and passion for Jiujitsu grows which each class and I couldn't be more happy with my decision to learn with Higher Jiujitsu.”
- Asha Daniels
"I joined Higher Jiu Jitsu in January 2018 to get back into BJJ after a very long time off the mats. John has done a fantastic job of creating a school where everyone trains hard and treats everyone with respect. I felt immediately welcome and have enjoyed every session!"
- Don Stevenson
“If you want to learn jiu jitsu in a really welcoming, safe environment, then just get off the internet and come here. Boom. Search done. Decision made. 💥 Lots of classes throughout the day and a really approachable teacher. Plus I like that John is really into holistic body movement and mindfulness, it shows in the class.”
- Natasha Keuneman
"What John is doing at Higher Jiu-Jitsu is what I would argue all places of learning should be aspiring for. He has cultivated an environment that incapsulates all of the most important elements of BJJ including wonderful people, nurturing spirit and inspired teaching... This is a place of learning for all levels. I hope you come and discover what I have.”
