"Dedicated to your progress!"

Erik Maldonado

I came to Jamal not knowing a thing about Jiu Jitsu or Budokon, wanting to try something new to get in shape. Jamal has dedicated his life to multiple martial arts disciplines including: Karate, Tang Soo Do, Jiu Jitsu, and Budokon. He is incredibly experienced, very encouraging, and has created a beautiful community around his practice. Unexpectedly, he will also teach you how to respect others, on and off the mat. You. Will. Not. Regret. Going!  He is very open, respectful, and welcoming to all skill levels. I have had the privilege of training with Jamal for over 12 months, I lost 35 pounds, participated in a Jiu Jitsu tournament, and even got a medal! Jiu Jitsu has truly become an important part of my life and I am very grateful to have been introduced to the sport by Jamal!
