I've been practicing Jiu-Jitsu for 13 years now. I started training in a school near my neighborhood, but unfortunately, there weren't many options in Chile then. Although I trained for a while, I felt I wasn't learning as consistently as I would have liked. One day, I heard about a seminar being held by Professor Juan Pablo Garcia in my country. I didn't know much about him, except that he was from the US, but Ecuadorian by nationality and a recognized black belt in his home country and the US. Intrigued, I decided to attend his seminar.

From the moment Professor Garcia entered the school and began teaching, I was blown away. He explained each technique and sequence with such clarity that it all made sense to me. After that class, I knew I wanted to continue learning from him. So, I became his student and worked my way up from a white belt to a proud black belt under his guidance.

I highly recommend Professor Garcia's methodology to anyone who is interested in Jiu-Jitsu, whether you're a beginner or aspiring to become a professional. I'm confident that it will bring you significant benefits and transform your approach to Jiu-Jitsu in a positive way, just as it did for me. So, go ahead and try it for yourself. Enjoy the journey and see the results firsthand.
