This place is great! After a 10 years hiatus, I could not have asked for a better Coach in Jordan or a better team/family environment. They are hands on and Jordan is constantly training with his students, which you don’t get at every gym. I also have my 4 year old son taking classes and he comes home smiling after each one. Aside from teaching him about hard work, respect and discipline, I love that this is something we can share.read more

I've only been to a handful of classes this far, but Coach Jordan has set up a friendly, welcoming environment for beginners, and brings true professionalism to the mat. The classes are fast paced, fun and detail oriented. The people I go to class with are friendly and willing to give advice and help, which is definitely beneficial when you first start.read more

The Jiu-Jitsu Mill promotes a wonderfully diverse and inclusive environment. When I’m on the mats I feel encouraged by Coach Jordan and other Jiu-Jitsu players to continue practicing and learn from every challenge. As a mother, who practices Jiu-Jitsu with her son, I praise The Jiu-Jitsu Mill for creating a safe space for children and adults alike to train in this sport.

It's hard to find a place with schedules that accommodate people who commute to and from the city, but Jiu-Jitsu Mill provided the right amount of options. I took advantage of the early morning combat striking classes which got me back to my old self. Jiu-Jitsu Mill has great training with all its instructors (shout out to AB!) and excellent service. Highly recommend if you're getting back into training or looking for some new motivation to workout again.read more

My name says it all. I keep it real. This is hands down the best and most complete school I have ever trained in. Top notch instructors in ground and stand up fighting. Coach Jordan (Owner) and coach Carlos with all the other instructors honestly stand for what coaches should be. From very basic beginners training, to Pro fighters training and coaching and no attitude. There are levels for everyone. I’m speaking from an adult perspective but all the parents and kids seem to love this place as well. No point going anywhere else but here.read more

My two kids have been going to The Jiu Jitsu Mill for about a year now. Besides being more physically active they have become more self-disciplined and confident in themselves. The coaches take interest in every kid. The facility is cozy, clean and welcoming. It is a commitment as you have to consistently attend to see progress - but this in itself is a good life lesson to kids. I highly recommend The Jiu Jitsu Mill!read more

Needed some mat time while traveling through the US before a competition. Coach Jordan set up a next day private for me and had two ladies come in to help. Loved the training, learned some new stuff and had the opportunity to train with new people. Another plus for me was the size of the space and showers were available. Also there wasn’t any crazy loud music playing to distract from instruction. After training in several countries and states picking a gym is like picking a friend or significant other. The atmosphere, coach and friendliness of the students makes this a place I would choose if I lived in the area.read more

Nothing but positive things to say. Excellent place to train and coach Jordan is an exceptional teacher. I had trained for a number of years (5+) prior to joining the Jiu Jitsu Mill and feel my game has improved vastly under Jordan's tutelage. The facilities are modern, professional and clean and the environment is very welcoming. There is a great crew that trains there which always guarantees fun and exciting rolls. I am also impressed by the quick learning curve of new joiners, which speaks highly of Jordan's instructional acumen and training program.read more

The people at the JJ Mill are the reason I keep going 4-5 days a week! A steady JJ regime along with eating right, you won't find a better weight loss/refining workout anywhere. Top notch gym. Jordan does an amazing job teaching and all the regulars are extremely helpful. Everyone is there to make each other better and have a great workout. The gym is very clean too. No complaints and highly recommended.read more

Excellent academy. Coach is fantastic in his ability to walk through, coach and train you through moves- while also being able to express his positive attitude and cultivate a true team environment. For children, and teens- great confidence builder. For adults- very team oriented and familial like environment, yet fosters competition and betterment of one's self. Regardless of your age, or physical appearance, everyone feels welcomed and embraced. Coach Jordan makes you see it, makes you believe it and keeps you coming back for more. Jiu jitsu isn't just a sport, it's a way of life. OSS!!!read more

Update: Four months in and 35lbs down so far (233-198) and no signs of slowing down. JJ is an amazing workout and builds some useful skills. Environment is everything! The people at the JJ Mill are the reason I keep going 4-5 days a week! A steady JJ regime along with eating right, you won't find a better weight loss/refining workout anywhere. Top notch gym. Jordan does an amazing job teaching and all the regulars are extremely helpful. Everyone is there to make each other better and have a great workout. The gym is very clean too. No complaints and highly recommended.read more

Excellent academy. Coach is fantastic in his ability to walk through, coach and train you through moves- while also being able to express his positive attitude and cultivate a true team environment. For children, and teens- great confidence builder. For adults- very team oriented and familial like environment, yet fosters competition and betterment of one's self. Regardless of your age, or physical appearance, everyone feels welcomed and embraced. Coach Jordan makes you see it, makes you believe it and keeps you coming back for more. Jiu jitsu isn't just a sport, it's a way of life. OSS!!!read more

Went for my first class there. Couldn't be happier with the facilities and the professionalism of the staff. I'm a first timer and they treated me as if I was warming up for a career. Will be coming back for sure. Thank you to the staff who were so awesome. read more

“We could not be more happy with the whole program…[Our kids] really respond to the discipline/team environment. We’ve tried a bunch of sports over the years and this is the first one there’s no gripping about going to practice!”

TITLE

Assistant Coach to Tiny & Lil Ninjas Programs

Training Background

I’ve trained at the Mill since 2015, in both BJJ & Muay Thai, receiving my blue belt under Coach Jordan in 2018. I’m also in the process of earning my 200 hour Hatha Yoga Alliance Teacher Training Certification.

 

ON HER CLASSES

My approach to coaching the kids is to facilitate an environment that motivates them to work hard. BJJ demands disciplined effort if one is to make progress. Out of the discipline, children learn valuable lessons about such things as humility, self-control, and perseverance in the face of hardship. I like to push the pace while still making it fun for the kids.
