GREENWOOD Jiu Jitsu
I have been very fortunate to receive many testimonials from students over the many years. I would
like to share a few of them here on our website with you.
"Chris is an excellent instructor and an even better person .Even if I
didnt train in Brazilian Jiu jitsu, he is the kind of person I am glad to call my friend.
Not only does he teach us the latest techniques from Brazil, you will find him training with his
students every class.
All the students here are eager to learn and ready to train. The team is very supportive of one
another and it shows with no ego's, just a good group of people, who are very respectful, hard
working and ready to learn. Everyone is willing to share techniques and tips making me glad to be
part of this team.
Brazilian Jui Jitsu is a very versatile and effective martial art that can be used by anyone, young
or old, large or small. As a male of small stature Chris has taught me how to turn my size into a
strength to overcome a larger opponent."
"Chris's commitment and knowledge of jiu jitsu is
amazing. Aside from being very technical he knows how to show his technique and break it down for
everyone to learn. I've seen his focus and dedication first hand in Brazil when he was preparing
for a tournament training everyday and nothing distracted him. Wether its your first class or
1000th Chris has what it takes to push yourself to the next level."
"I enrolled with my 11 yrs old son in BJJ 6 and a
half years ago as a family thing. Lucas (my son) has had over 50 fights, 90% gold medals, including
at 16 yrs of age fighting and winning the adult division. I compete every year with fighters 1/2 my
age, winning more then half the time. This level of skill, fitness and fun is why I train with
"Chris is a generous and patient instructor who
always has time for his students. His hard work and dedication to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is inspiring.
Chris has a very smooth and technical style, he is a tactician on the mat and an extremely
competent instructor. He knows how to help someone achieve that next level in their training and he
loves seeing his students succeed. Greenwood Jiu-jitsu Academy is like my second home and the
students are like my extended family."
"His style of teaching with attention to detail
while enjoying a warm friendly atmosphere is perfect. I look forward every day to getting on the
mat at our outstanding facility and improving my game as well as helping others improve theirs. If
he see's a student struggle he is very patient and finds another way to communicate the position
until it is understood. Chris has a ton of integrity which also shows in the quality of the
students drawn to him. I think the instructors make or break a school."
"Chris is patient and sincerely interested in
each and every student no matter their level of skill. He never pushes me to unrealistic goals but
he has instilled me to never accept anything but my best effort. Everyone there wants to help you
get better and there are no egos. Nobody is there to hurt their training partners. I highly
recommend Greenwood Jiu Jitsu for good vibes and outstanding Jiu Jitsu."
"As a former professional hockey player, I've
been training all my life in various environments and with different instructors. Meeting Chris and
training with him has taught me not only the importance of the mental game but how to access it
through his techniques. He can give anyone who is dedicated in Jiu Jitsu the mental edge."
Are you unsure on how to choose the
right club for you? The most essential quality in an instructor is the passion they show for their
art. Along with possession of abounding energy and enthusiasm which you can't get from a web site.
I personally invite you to come in and try it for FREE.
No matter how focused or committed you
are, it's difficult to make any journey alone. We all need someone to push us, to inspire us, to
help us honour our commitments, and to allow us to stay true to our dreams and goals. As your
Teacher, I will be there to lift your spirits up after failure. If obstacles stand in your way, or
your enthusiasm starts to deplete, your Professor will share stories of his own journey of ups and
