Real world self defense training

Having thoroughly researched and visited all the major BJJ Schools in the Greater Nashville area, I instantly knew after meeting Professor Jeremy Akin at Brentwood Jiu-Jitsu, that his school and teaching style was special.  At age 43, with four children, high work demands and limited free time, there is not much room for hobbies. My initial motivation in taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was self defense training. 

After a very short time, I found equal benefits of the physical /aerobic conditioning, stress reduction and camaraderie in a supportive atmosphere. In less than six months, I have developed a strong passion for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, lost 44 pounds, eliminated my constant lower back and knee pains, tremendously increased flexibility and core strength.

All the above are indirect side bars to my initial goal of self defense training.  At Brentwood Jiu-Jitsu, students of all levels have direct training from a 2nd degree black belt Jeremy Akin. His direct hands-on training, patience and years of experience makes a profound difference.  Professor Akin’s many years of training directly from Luiz Palhares and Rickson Gracie definitely shows in self defense techniques that work in real world situations.  I definitely made the right choice in Jeremy and Brentwood Jiu-Jitsu.

 I started about 9 months ago.  In that time, I've lost 30 pounds and kept it off.  I'm more assertive.  I'm more confident.  The instructor, Jeremy Akin, is an amazing professor and student of the game.  He has taken folks who thought they could never do this and turned them into tournament champions.  He's taken folks who were marred by their own self-imposed barriers and helped them find better versions of themselves.  This isn't just about fitness, but you will get fit.  This isn't just about finding a family of folks to train with, although you will make amazing connections.  It isn't about you wrestling with other people.  It is about you grappling with yourself and mastering your own weaknesses.

I never thought I'd like this, and I don't.  I love it.  Thank you Brentwood Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
