With absolutely no knowledge of Jiu Jitsu, we brought our 6 year old son in less than a month after GMBJJ Chesapeake opened. We were welcomed with open arms and loved the clean, new facility. Professor Greg has an unmatched patience and enthusiasm to teach the Youth classes. Our daughter couldn’t wait for her dance recital to be over and her birthday, so that she was old enough to join her brother and learn Jiu Jitsu too. After a year and a half at this Academy, we have found that they have become family. Absolutely FIVE STARS!

I was only in town for the summer, but I can’t believe what I was able to learn in such a short time. Professor Greg Walker treated me like a regular student even though he knew I was only there for the summer. The fundamental classes were on point and definitely helped my game. My only regret was not being able to formally say goodbye due to flying back home early. I look forward to dropping in when I’m in town!

I have been training for over a decade as a fighter and a grappler all over the East Coast. Now I only do it for exercise and fun. Greg does a great job with all levels of students. Just a great environment for learning both BJJ and respect for others. I’ll definitely be coming back here. Greg is a great ambassador of Gustavo Machado BJJ.

Highly recommend if you’re looking at getting into martial arts! I started training with Professor Walker when he was a trainer at UFC Gym. When he left, so did I. He is an amazing coach and has helped me progress immensely in Jiu Jitsu. He also offers kids classes and does excellent work with them!

If you are looking for a place to start a foundation of discipline and respect for your child from someone outside of your own home, then you have to look no further! Professor Greg Walker has spent years working with kids of all types, for the most rambunctious to the very timid. My own son trained their and has been diagnosed with ADHD so needless to say he has a hard time staying focused. Professor Greg was just the thing he needed. He worked with him to improve and stay on track. I saw another review that warned of listening to recommendations from customers, but who else would you rather listen too? Martial arts is tough for children and adults. The way Professor Greg teaches to each individual learning style and is great with all kids. I can’t recommend this academy and it’s staff enough!!
