Ever since I first stepped through the glass door of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Milwaukee I have felt at home. Skye Middleton (head instructor) is professional, personable, knowledgeable, and available. Not only is he a technical and well respected grappler (by both his peers and students alike), he is great with kids (mine being six and nine).
Having been a cancer patient for the past six years (now in remission) I was looking for an activity that could keep me in shape, provide reliable self-defense, and be something my whole family could enjoy together--Gracie Jiu Jitsu is it!
The class structure is refreshing, the curriculum is well thought out, and the environment is inviting. My sons absolutely love the "bully proof" program so much that we now have mats in our living room and we spend an hour a day doing jiu-jitsu at home.
Furthermore, if you are looking for a place to train jiu-jitsu in Milwaukee Wisconsin this is it. Not only will you learn the famous "Gracie Jiu-Jitsu," but the atmosphere is just the right mixture of work (drilling and rolling) and play (as in positive attitudes, smiles, and "keeping it playful"). Skye's students are engaged, pleasant/polite, and hard working. In finality, as Rener Gracie (son of Rorion Gracie who created the UFC) would say and I would argue--Skye definitely "keeps it real."
