R. Bradley Trent D.D.S.

On the recommendation of a friend, I started training at Lovato’s School of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu about 18 months ago.  I had no experience in wrestling or grappling and was almost 48 years old.  I knew nothing about the instructors, or even had a clear idea of what BJJ was.  Now, I truly feel like one of the luckiest guys alive.  Of all the martial arts schools available, I was fortunate enough to walk into one where the instructor is a World Champion.  

There are several things I like about training at Lovato’s:
  1. They push you hard, so you quickly get in shape.
  2. There are a lot of good training partners.
  3. There is opportunity for private lessons in addition to group lessons.
  4. They have a wonderful children’s program.
  5. There are also Boxing and Muay Thai classes available.
  6. They have seminars with legends like Saulo & Xande Ribeiro.  
What I like best about my training is that I am learning something new.  I feel like Christopher Columbus, discovering a whole new world of opportunity.  

So, whatever your goals:  physical fitness, stress relief, self-defense, tournaments or just gaining a new understanding and appreciation of mixed martial arts, I recommend training at Lovato’s.
