Mike Staton Reviews Professor Brian Ruscio of Grappling Mastery

“We are so pleased to find an instructor that has the patience, time, skill, great with kids, and all around passion to teach. It is great to learn from a Black belt instructor with Gracie lineage. My child was new to Jiu Jitsu and fell in love with the sport, he has progressed quickly thanks to great instruction. The best part about the school is the team atmosphere. Everyone helps everyone, what a great family and team we have become part of. It has been a long time since I have found an instructor with patience, solid character, actual experience, and respectable training. We definitely found a great instructor at Grappling Mastery. We have been in martial arts and the fight game for a long time and it is finally great to see someone who works so well with kids as well as adults.  It’s great to see a place where, from the instructor on down, you are treated like family. A place of respect and a true family atmosphere gym. Our family has been in fighting sports for many years and have trained with many fight instructors. It has always been difficult to find an instructor with knowledge, skill, and the ability to be professional. We have definitely found that in Grappling Mastery and it’s head instructor . We love the diversity of classes and the ability to work with individuals at your level. We wanted to learn from the best and we were willing to travel to find someone… we lucked out, right in Mount Dora, we found a professional high quality Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt. Brian has a diverse background and is a truly respectable instructor.”
