Our family and I love SDBJJ. We have been coming here for over 10 years and have had an amazing experience with all of the high level instructors (Wes, Carlos, Dillon, Justin, and others), and the atmosphere and training environment is so friendly. For anyone new or experienced, this gym has everything for you, whether it be fundamentals classes, parents classes, kids classes, open mats, or even just casual classes for the entire family, this place has whatever you are looking for.

SDBJJ is our second home. My entire family trains here and some of us as often as 3 times in a day. Staff and other members have become our friends and family. The training schedule is robust and every coach is extremely skilled and knowledgeable. The leaders here are always so open about adding classes and other great implementations as well. This place is part of our daily routine and we would be absolutely lost without it.

I've been training at SDBJJ for 2 years. For someone who had never stepped on the mat or imagined doing Jiu Jitsu, this academy has provided a space where I could push my boundaries, train consistently, and immerse myself into a new martial art. The senseis, coaches, and supportive community at this gym have encouraged me to stay on the mat when it got hard and even compete in my first tournament. The people here are wonderful, and I've seen this gym become a second home for many. With kids, work, and life responsibilities, the 4:45 am weekday and 7:00 am weekend BJJ classes enable me to train everyday, with no excuses. Early morning grind at SDBJJ is definitely the best way to start everyday.

I am new to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and I wanted to start learning. Last month, I began shopping around for a BJJ place in North County, and I had reached out to a few places in the area. After one phone call with Wesley, the owner, I was sold and knew that San Diego Brazilian Jiu-jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts Academy would be my new home.

Over the phone, Wesley was kind, patient to answer any of my questions, encouraging when I shared my goals, and enthusiastic about his BJJ dojo and community. In person, his enthusiasm for BJJ is infectious, and it’s clear that he and Tyler (co-owner) are passionate about BJJ and what they are building. The facility is massive and well-cared for. I usually attend the 7:30pm class, and I regularly see an employee cleaning the bathrooms and the mats at the end of class in the evenings. The women’s bathroom has cubbies to store personal items and a shower.

I have attended evening classes and have taken classes with Wesley and Dillon. From the way they teach, it’s clear to me that they have a lot of experience working with and instructing beginners. Everyone I have met in the classes has been kind and respectful. In the beginning, I was apprehensive to pair up with more experienced players, but I’ve learned everyone wants to help and share what they know. Plus, everyone is so nice! My membership includes unlimited access to all classes (which are SO MANY and not only include BJJ) and the fitness equipment upstairs and downstairs (weight machines, assault bikes, rowers, sleds, barbells, weights, and lots of other equipment perfect for accessory work).

What started with my son has expanded to our family training here. Kind, knowledgeable instructors who teach with intensity but not violence. This a great place to make friends and get exercise. An even better place to train Jiu Jitsu.

I have been training here for over a year and I still love it. I have trained at other schools but this one has the best sense of camaraderie between students and the teacher. They have many different classes and lots of times to go so it can fit your busy schedule. I came here with no experience but with the help of the teacher and all the students I picked it up quick. I checked out a few schools around north county even did there free intro classes but without a doubt I am very happy I chose San Diego Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
