243371_4127794725380_428408379_o I’ve had the good fortune of training at Rob Kahn’s Gracie West under Joe “Bamboo” Wissman of Team Bamboo. My military and professional background have given me an intuitive sense for high quality. Bamboo personifies this quality with his professional demeanor and real world experience. He effectively communicates the reality of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to a diverse group of students ranging from high school athletes, to surgeons, to MMA successful amateurs and professionals alike. It is my privelege and honor to be his student. If you’re seeking a no BS way to get into practical fighting shape, you will be hard pressed to find many like him.
