“I take many of the lessons and values he has taught me into life with me.”
Chris Reyman is a knowledgeable, patient and efficient instructor that I have had the pleasure to work with for many years during my jiu jitsu career. His love for the sport has helped inspire me to pursue jiu jitsu as a career myself. Even though Chris and I no longer extensively work together I take many of the lessons and values he has taught me into life with me today. Chris is an overall wonderful instructor and taking his classes will only do you good.

How often should I train?
The answer to this question often baffles people because the truth is you should Always be training.
How is this possible? Well let me tell you that it’s all about mind set and mental skills. Do not just see this as a physical activity because Jiu-jitsu like any other martial art is a system of thought and expression.
Generally I advise people to start physical preparation at least 2-3 times weekly but that doesn’t mean you cannot watch and observe all the while learning more than actually participating.
