“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.

“If you’re looking for a qualified, knowledgeable instructor, look no further.”
Professor Chris Reyman is a phenomenal instructor and practitioner. He has been studying the Jiu jitsu/grappling game for well over a decade under Renzo and John Danaher and continues to teach and train daily. Chris is a phenomenal black belt and has been a great training partner for me over the years. As a fellow black belt instructor, I am impressed by Chris’s knowledge, dedication and continued study of the art. He has trained with some the best in the world and due to his continued study of the game, he has a vast understanding of modern, cutting-edge techniques. He has an amazing understanding of wrestling and mma as well as gi and no-gi bjj. If you’re looking for a qualified, knowledgeable instructor, look no further.
