I started training at Gracie Westchase to help me prepare for my fights both prior to and while under contract with the UFC. Bamboo set up a remarkable program that allowed not just my skill set to grow, but a cardio regiment that put me in the greatest shape of my life. Bamboo is both knowledgable in Brazilian jiu jitsu and wrestling, as well as Muay Thai and boxing. His ability to blend the four into an effective and overall simple program to learn is nothing short of extraordinary. I highly recommend people of all ages and experience levels to go to Gracie Westchase. Whether you want self defense or to lose weight, you will never find a better place for it.

Shane Primm

I’ve been training at Gracie Westchase for about 3 years and 1 month exactly. Prior to here I had no MMA background other than wrestling. I’ve done many grappling tournaments where I’ve placed 1st in all but one where I came in 2nd. I am a current Florida Amateur Lightweight Champion with a record of 7-0. Gracie Westchase has a bunch of students who are all respectful and excellent partners to train with. There are always fresh new people joining in along with all the vets as well. All in all I feel as if I’ve learned a lot from Bamboo and I feel with his instructions and guidance I’ve managed to achieve everything I’ve accomplished in MMA because of him.
