A life long Martial Artist Steve took up Jiu Jitsu after leaving the Marine Corps in 2007 as it was a great way to quiet the mind and focus more on other aspects of his life. Little did Steve know that Jiu Jitsu would become a passion of his taking him to many places and meeting great people as he competed against some of the best in the world.

It was there he felt he had found the people and the place that would keep him focused and driven not only in sport but in Life.

Whether you are a young kid in school, a Doctor, a Police officer, a teacher, a mother, a father, or a future World Champion, Jiu Jitsu will give you the knowledge to be successful! OSS!"
