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.
