“We enjoy being of service in the community. And yes, knowing what we are doing is the key ingredient, but having a nice location for our students to train is also very important, as is having a nice space to foster a greater sense of community in the areas we are located. Being generous and giving back is among our core values” says Jim Hughes, long time student and one of only a handful of Black Belts promoted by Legendary UFC, Pride, and K1 fighter Royce Gracie.
