Nemesis, We All Have One

At Nemesis Jiu Jitsu we know there is no cookie-cutter formula to jiu jitsu. Just as each individual has a different body type and personality - everyone has a different style of jiu jitsu that works for them.  We believe the more time you put in on the mats, the better you will become.

Nemesis is all about conquering the personal nemeses in our lives. People from all walks of life show up to learn self-defense, get in shape, manage stress, improve their grappling, or  push themselves to the limit. 

Everyone leaves with is friendship, confidence and an art that they can share with their children, siblings, and best friends.

I believe jiu-jitsu as a whole is all about timing, rhythm, and motion. Because of this I do not focus solely on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but jiu-jitsu as a whole. Jiu-jitsu as an art is much broader and accepting of other forms of grappling.  Jiu-jitsu should not shut out the rest of the grappling world.
It is my belief that Jiu-jitsu should accept what is good and what is pure from all the diverse grappling disciplines.  I trained in an area where a lot of Greco-Roman wrestling, freestyle wrestling, western wrestling, boxing, and American kickboxing was taught simultaneously.   All of these disciplines have influenced my style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. They are the foundation of my game and the game of my students.  It is through this foundation that I teach a jiu-jitsu based on sensibility, physical fitness, and passion.
I want people to have fun pushing themselves and improving their life, by learning to defend themselves. I want to help build self-confidence in my students and share with them an art that they can pass down to their children. Camaraderie is a big part of Nemesis. Students of all levels interact and build each other up on and off the mat. There is a sense of encouragement and accountability here. People at all stages of their game encourage one another to perfect a new move, practice better technique, or simply show up on a regular basis. This accountability helps to build confidence, individual game, and strong relationships in and out of the gym.
The one secret in life is to find that one thing that makes you happy and never stop doing it. I want to do this forever – until I die.
