Mike practices a brand of Jiu-Jitsu not for the faint of heart, which includes pressure passing, folkstyle wrestling, catch as catch can, and a wider range of submission attacks than you are likely to see from any other coach in the city (the most dangerous of which is his infamous d’arce). Mike is an extremely committed coach who is known for not letting you leave until you have the technique down perfectly!
