Hi, Kylie here :) I had been babysiting for 6 years when I started my journey doing boxing and jiu jitsu. I started classes as a form of self defense classes and ended up falling in love with it. I have always loved being around and working with children. After I began helping with Brazilian Top Team's kids program, I really fell in love coaching the littles! Since starting I have grown a lot in both boxing/jiu jitsu and as a person. Martial Arts has boosted my self esteem and given me more resposibilities, which has really helped me become more of an independent and strong young woman.
Hi, I’m Logan! I’m 14 years old and I’ve been practicing brazilian jiu-jitsu since January of 2021. I started because I wanted to learn self defense and I thought that it was interesting. In the past year I’ve learned important self defense skills, improved my health, and made great friendships. I’ve enjoy working with Coach Dave and Coach Missy, and they always work to help me improve my jiujitsu skills. I am an assistant coach in the four o’clock class as well as the youth five o’clock class. Working with the kids has taught me patience and discipline and I look forward to seeing them on Tuesdays and Thursdays. .
