A Rush To Praise
August 01, 2013 at 4:24 PM
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners who happen to visit Nanaimo are making Island Top Team a must-see stop during their time on beautiful Vancouver Island. Perhaps it's due to our policy of not charging out-of-towners to drop in on our classes, perhaps it's due to the fact that we're the only option for legit BJJ instruction in the central island area, or perhaps our reputation for unique, high level training methodology is spreading... regardless, nary a month goes by without a visitor. All of our visitors have spoken very highly of the quality of our club, but one of our most recent visitors went above and beyond. Having joined us for a few classes over the course of a week, our visitor, a blue belt from a Renzo Gracie affiliate, took it upon himself to address the class to inform them that while he has travelled throughout North America and trained at some of the most prestigious BJJ academies in places like New York and Los Angeles, Island Top Team offered a quality of coaching and students that was the equal of the best places he'd attended. He went on to explain that his understanding of Jiu-Jitsu had been completely revolutionized from experiencing our Professor's concept and principle based approach, and hoped that the students here understood how lucky they were to have the opportunity to participate in such a unique learning environment.
We are very proud to have the sort of club that would earn such praise, and will continue to work hard to be worthy of it. If you're interested in the journey that only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can take you on, and aspire to travel that road with the best guidance possible, please come visit us at Island Top Team.
