ANY OF THESE TROUBLES?
Do you want to lose weight and tone your muscles?
Do you want to feel prepared to defend yourself if you need to?
Are you ready to feel new levels of self-confidence and pride?
GETTING IN SHAPE IS IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND SIZES
Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.
RESULTS AND GROWTH WITH EVERY CLASS!
Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.
BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU BUILDS MUSCLE AND MAXIMIZES PHYSICAL FITNESS
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.
By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.
It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.
BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU TEACHES PRACTICAL SELF-DEFENSE TECHNIQUES
The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.
By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.
Best of all, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.
BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU STUDENTS WALK WITH CONFIDENCE AND PRIDE
There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.
Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.
Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.
BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU COMPETITIONS PROVIDE A UNIQUE CHALLENGE
Students who have a natural competitive drive love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.
I have known Professor Brian for 10 years and he is an excellent BJJ, Wrestling and Muay Thai instructor. He has a great team and creates a family atmosphere that works hard and produces awesome students. If you’re in the Mount Dora location and looking to train BJJ, I’d recommend checking out Grappling Mastery.
Great teacher, great folks. Brian knows how to break the moves down so even beginners can understand how and WHY they work.
I’ve been training there for 3 years now. Brian is an excellent and patient instructor. He has made an atmosphere that is friendly and family oriented. I would highly recommend.
I have trained in Jiu-Jitsu at various periods in my life since the late 1990’s. I started with Alliance Jiu-Jitsu in Atlanta. After a few years off, I trained under a Gracie Barra program where I used the knowledge to start competing in Jiu-Jitsu/Grappling. Once again after another few years off, I trained with American Top Team in Atlanta. I’ve had top-notch training at each of these places. I recently signed up for and completed the Grappling Mastery 30-day complementary trial period. What I can tell you about this place is that you will receive the highest level of instruction in a format that allows you to build the necessary reps to ingrain the information so that it will last far beyond a two min drill. It was the first time I had come across a format that lent itself best to the learning process of new information. Highly recommend. Check this place out!
Easily the best School in Lake County. This guy knows what he’s doing, his credentials are legit, and he’s a genuinely great person. Nothing but great times in his gym. If you’re looking for a nice, casual and laid back environment where you can really learn Jiu Jitsu, have a great time, and make lots of good friends, this is where to go.
I have only recently began training with Brian with the Grappling Mastery team. Having been from Las Vegas and training under multiple coaches, it’s gives me great comfort knowing such a gem of an instructor like Brian resides in an almost “middle-of-nowhere” location.
Coming from big teams in Vegas, I was surprised when I witnessed a regular training day in Brian’s Kids Class. The juvenile and adult classes also have a good percentage of females training. This is indicative of how team members trust Brian to provide a wholesome training environment. Most remotely located academies don’t have as much female or kids/juvenile numbers training.
I have scouted around the area for any jiu-jitsu training and was only met with disappointment when I found out the only other jiu-jitsu academy has a black belt that is not IBJJF certified.
I have recommended his academy to people at work who might be interested in starting in the martial arts or just want to get fit. Brian is an IBJJF-certified black belt with a lineage from Marcio Simas of Gracie Barra Orlando.
Great coaching, Great system, Amazing team, couldn’t ask for better!
Awesome people, amazing instruction! A great space to learn with great people eager to teach. Supportive atmosphere & a place to improve your confidence, health & have a great time pushing yourself.
While doing research on schools in the area I had just moved to I was told that this school had a certain reputation (Cobra Kai type) so I decided to see for myself. Turns out there was nothing further from the truth. The coach and all its members have become like family. Not only that but the jiu-jitsu lineage can be verified, their coaches are battle tested and no egos. If you’re looking to learn and train this is a great place to do it.
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.
Come check it out!
Fantastic school to learn BJJ plus many other techniques. It’s like one big family! Professor Brian Ruscio is very knowledgeable and patient with his students. It’s a great family and positive environment.
I’ve known Brian Ruscio since 2005 and trained for a few years with him in Orlando.I decided I would travel to Mt. Dora from Lakeland,FL and train with him.Grappling Mastery was very clean and professionally ran by Brian. His techniques were awesome and his students welcomed me as a visitor and made me feel at home. When I arrived for jiu jitsu I learned that they were starting with yoga Monday through Wednesday from 6-6:30 and I hadn’t planned on taking a yoga class but Brian invited me to join him and I’m glad I did it was an excellent way to warm up, gain flexibility, and that lends itself to safer training as well.
Again if you are looking to train as a guest or you’re looking to find an excellent school I would highly recommend Grappling Mastery.
(Translated by Google) Very nice and nice teacher !!!
너무 친절하고 좋은 선생님임 !!!
I came to grappling mastery a few months ago with no experience in any combat sports. Everyone from the beginning has been very friendly and always eager to help me learn. Great school, Great people.
A great environment and excellent instructor and people.
The best place for martail arts I’ve ever been to. The atmosphere is relaxed enough to enjoy learning but has the intensity to make you strive for achievement .
My experience at Grappling Mastery has been positive and exciting. I am trying to grow my knowledge and ability in Jiu Jitsu and other mixed martial arts. I have improved my skill level and knowledge under Brian in these areas of Jiu Jitsu; Takedowns, guard passing, sweeps and submissions. If you want to learn self-defense, stay in shape, or choke someone out with their own shirt, this is the place for you.
The school has become a second family and everyone is willing to help others improve. We even attend UFC/metamoris parties as a group. There are no egos and we have fun learning with Brian’s patient instruction.
I was in the area visiting, and contacted Brian. He was responsive, and welcomed me to join them at their open mat. Good group of guys and girls there, positive environment, good instruction–I’ll be back.
Truly blessed to walk in this gym and feel like I been there years the coaches are beyond awesome should really give this place a try!!!!!!
Excellent gym. Great atmosphere, Brian is well versed in all aspects of grappling to help grow your game. He was able to explain the concepts of the move being taught. Definitely recommend
Great classes! Brian really takes the time to work with you and show techniques in depth. I look forward to continue training with him at each and every class
5 year old son, started with Brian and his team about 8 months ago. He has come leaps and bounds in personal and in the sport. We already have plans on having our daughter enter once she is of age.
Awesome!!! Just Awesome!!! From the instructor, Brian Ruscio, to the teammates I train with! Doesn’t get any better.
Best decision I’ve made in my life yet. Brian is a genuine, caring, and intelligent teacher. I’ve been going there for 4 months and have developed so much, not just in martial arts but as a person too. You will learn and grow here i promise you that,not only from what Brian teaches but what the other members are able to teach you. Everyone is there to help one another.
I joined primarily to get in better shape yet immediately discovered a community that I had to be a part of.
Brian Ruscio is an excellent Black Belt Bjj instructor. Very technical and motivating. His wrestling background is an added bonus. Try it out the free class, you’ll see what I mean.
I finally got the opportunity to train at Grappling Mastery last night and was honestly impressed. He was very welcoming and had plenty of time for all of his students. The class was filled with enthusiasm and students were having a good time. Don’t miss your chance to train under a legitimate Gracie Barra black belt!
Definitely the best place to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Lake County! They also offer several types of Wrestling and Muay Thai instruction as well. Professor Brian learned from the best and is willing and able to pass on his vast knowledge. If you’re serious about martial arts, you can’t go wrong with Grappling Mastery.
Top Notch training! I’m so happy to have found this school and its instructors! Like one big family! I definitely recommend this school to any one looking! See you on the Mats.
Grappling Mastery is by far the best club to join in Eustis. FL. my personal experience was awesome they are professional, friendly folks. they will work with you to help you accomplish your goals.
I enjoyed the class immensely. Being a little familiar w different types of disciplines and instructors through the years, I can honestly say that Brian has the demeanor of a true martial artist. No matter what your level of training, Brian will be patient and helpful in his instruction. I highly recommend Grappling Mastery, to anyone w a teachable attitude!
Love this school, I have been going there for 9 months and don’t plan on leaving, the school is very lucky to have a professor like Brian Ruscio, very talented, skillful, and knowledgeable in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Wrestling and others. I recommend this school with confidence.
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.
Outstanding instruction! Definitely an awesome learning environment and it feels like one big family! Brian and Rita genuinely care about your progress and growth in Jiu Jitsu! No one is out to prove anything which creates a very comfortable and welcoming class setting. The physical benefits are amazing and you learn a skill. Give it a try… you’ll be addicted!
Top Notch training! I’m so happy to have found this school and its instructors! I definitely recommend this school to any one looking! See you on the Mats.
Great Place to Train, Legit BJJ Osss FURIA
Brian is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and humble. He is very patient with the kids and us older learners. Everyone at Grappling Mastery was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!
I’ve been training here only a couple months at this point, but since day one I’ve felt welcomed. Brian and the guys and girls here are all super cool and constantly helping me learn. Definitely worth checking out!
Since I was 8 yrs old(BloodSport release) I had wanted to train in Martial Arts. Do to circumstances in my life and growing up I was unable to. I was in and out a couple of times, nothing consistently. 25yrs later(still following it, dissecting it and just in general never lost my love for the concept, understanding and mentality of true martial arts), I can say w/ absolute certainty that all the things in my life led me to where I find myself now @ GM. I had been looking at schools on and off for a little while. To say this place is what you’d expect to find at the end of a rainbow would be a disservice. I met Brian Ruscio about 2 months ago after checking out another local school. Unless you are dead inside you will notice instantly that he carries the heart and characteristics of a True Martial Artist, he truly loves what does, all of it. What himself and Rita are in the process of building deserves endless praise. Thank you Brian and Rita for all your patience and wisdom I appreciate it tremendously.
I started training at Grappling Mastery about 4 months ago. Brian Ruscio is a patient, knowledgeable coach and the academy is family friendly for all ages.
I am now trying to get my 6 year old into BJJ as I think it will be a great experience for him. I would recommend Grappling Mastery to anyone without hesitation.
Excellent academy to learn Jiu jitsu, they made feel like family right away.
Great place to train. Professor Ruscio has a broad knowledge of many forms of grappling in addition to traditional BJJ and Muay Thai striking and incorporates all of this into his teachings to great effect.
Traveling through, or are a local? This is worth the stop if you have had a taste of the Grappling or Striking kool-aid.
Amazing academy with amazing teachers, true martial art and honorable knowledge!!

No, you don’t. There are beginner classes available and many of the people who study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu have no prior martial arts training.
Absolutely. It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.
Students typically wear a Gi (two-piece garment worn by martial artists.) It is also typical for some students may want to wear a mouth guard. It’s a good idea to have a supply of athletic tape, as well.
It can, particularly if you combine Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides a great, full-body workout that burns calories, builds muscles, and boosts the metabolism.
No. Beginner classes focus on teaching basic techniques and safety, and you can then work your way up to controlled sparring in class.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training relieves stress and anxiety and increases mental well-being.
