Megaton, Luka, and Mackenzie are great practitioners and teachers of BJJ. I can personally tell you they are even better as human beings. I enjoyed training with Megatons team and look forward to many more. The work they do with children is amazing too. If you are in the Phoenix area…this is thee #1 place to train for real BJJ!
