Leglocks are currently the thing everyone wants to learn in BJJ. Leglocks are winning tournaments, mma fights, even for self defense on the street, leglocks finish fights. For the longest time, leglocks were frowned upon because it “wasn’t good jiu jitsu” or meant “you couldn’t pass guard”. Most BJJ Black Belts are not fluent with […]

BUILD CHARACTER AND LEADERSHIP QUALITIES
Martial arts classes benefit growing children far beyond the dojo and in many real-world scenarios. Our structured classes are meant to help develop coordination, physical fitness, mental strength, as well as gain valuable social skills. Through positive reinforcement, we can bring out the best in your children to help them succeed in life.
After training in several other grappling schools, I am so pleased to have found the best at last! Not only is Brian very thorough and proficient in jiu jitsu techniques but his vast wrestling background really complements and solidifies the actual application of the positions, and techniques. Multiple options are shown for both submissions and escapes and the same techniques are worked on for that week which helps reinforce them before moving on. The difference of both the sport and self defense applications is also distinguished and both are offered.
The atmosphere and morale of the school is very friendly supportive and you will feel the group effort and respect for one another, without passing judgments. I am really impressed at the patience and willingness of Brian to work one on one with each student during class and in private training. Its also great to see the videos that are uploaded when I cant physically be at the school but still want to mentally be present. In this day and age it is very difficult to find an instructor with people skills as well as a wealth of experience. With Brian you have the total package! I drive a half an hour from the Orlando area every time, but its totally worth it! Especially with affordable dues.
I have trained in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu with several gyms throughout the east coast for a year prior to joining Grappling Mastery and I must say Brian has the best school I have ever had the honor to train at. I have been at this gym for a little over a year now and i’ve watched him transform not only myself but many others into top of the line grapplers and teammates. Brian is the only IBJJF certified instructor in the area and it shows as many people from other local gyms seek him out to train with the best. From the moment you walk in the door be it kids or adults,beginners or seasoned veterans of the sport are always made to feel welcome. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a quality experiance in the sport of Jiu Jitsu.
My son (10) has been coming here Monday through Friday for the last month and we have no plans on stopping! He loves everything about this gym. The coaches are phenomenal and do such amazing work with the kids. They are patient and kind with them and every single child that comes here looks forward to it. They really take the time to show the children techniques and enforce what they are teaching them. I cannot recommend this gym highly enough! If you’re an adult looking to train in jiu-jitsu or you have children that want to train, this is the place to bring them!
Every day I train at Grappling Mastery is an honor and a pleasure. It is a rare thing indeed to find a coach as knowledgeable and technically proficient as Brian Ruscio; what’s even more impressive is his obvious passion for the sport and the personal investment he makes in his students. If you want to be a more complete fighter, or even just a talented hobbyist, Grappling Mastery is the place to be. For those of you in the first responder community, a discount is available, and *everyone* can try the first 30 days free. If this seems like a shameless plug, well that’s because it is. I was welcomed with open arms as a new student, and my game has grown leaps and bounds. I couldn’t imagine training anywhere else.

If you live in the Tavares, Eustis, Mt Dora area and are interested in adult, teen, or child instruction in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, or Judo I cannot recommend IBJJF Black Belt Brian Ruscio enough…absolutely the best instructor for all ages and skill levels in the area!!! Brian promotes an atmosphere that is friendly while at the same time allowing for competition and hard rolling if that is what you are looking for. The one thing I thought my son would miss not being involved in traditional team sports is the team…I was very wrong. Grappling Mastery is an outstanding team and I would not train anywhere else!!!
Grappling Mastery’s BJJ, and Muay Thai classes have taught me so much. Brian Ruscio is a great instructor and I would highly recommend his classes. I initially joined to learn self defense, and after a few months feel able to defend myself in any situation. I enjoyed Brian’s classes and instruction so much that my interest has gone beyond self defense and progressed into a passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
