Greg is a straight up amazing person, many people I look up to certain qualities in, but Greg is an overall a good person to model after.  This gym is large, has tons of changing rooms and is well organized and clean.  The instruction is top notch and personalities are all awesome here.  For anyone who is reading this and debating starting Jiu Jitsu, come here and you won't be disappointed, it isn't as intimidating as you would think and you'll have a blast.

Shout out to GMBJJ chesapeake  for teaching my niece the fundamentals of Brazilian jujitsu, while she was here on fall break! Professor Greg and his colleagues were passionate about instructing and instilling the basic principles of BJJ and ensuring she had a blast doing so!

Amazing place to learn Jiu Jitsu!! Professor Greg is a great teacher. All the coaches do a fantastic job of helping me understand what I need to do to keep getting better. Gustavo’s is a great family & gym!

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!

Level of instruction and attention to detail is second to none! The previous gym that I trained at produced multiple UFC fighters including one UFC champion; the training here at GMBJJ Chesapeake is simply…..better. Professor Greg’s passion for the art is evident from the moment you step through the doors and influences every part of the academy. No matter how many people are on the mat, he somehow has the time to help everyone improve and perfect their techniques. The welcoming culture and comradery is unparalleled creating the best atmosphere to train in with some of the most amazing people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. The academy feels like home and teammates are family!

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!
