“If you live in the Tavares, Eustis, Mt Dora area and are interested in adult, teen, or child instruction in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, or Judo I cannot recommend IBJJF Black Belt Brian Ruscio enough…absolutely the best instructor for all ages and skill levels in the area!!! I looked around for quite a while searching for a place that trained kids. Most didn’t start until the kids are 12, but Brian started them at less than half that age! What I found at Grappling Mastery was not only a place where my seven year old son had a blast, learned an incredible amount about the sport of BJJ and self-defense, and made lots of friends, but a place where I could do the same. Brian promotes an atmosphere that is friendly while st the same time allowing for competition and hard rolling if desired. The one thing I thought my son would miss not being involved in traditional team sports is the team…I was very wrong. Grappling Mastery is an outstanding team and I would not train anywhere else!!!” – Ryan Swinford, U.S. Army Captain …more reviews
