Here’s a cool testimonial video of Arena member Joey Kong who began training Jiu Jitsu and Submission Grappling a couple years ago with Coaches Ryan Fortin and Baret Yoshida.
My name is Joey Kong. I’ve been training here at the arena for about two years. Always wanted to train, so just made my appointment. Came in. They were very welcoming. The team’s really supportive. We’ve got lots of high level people that make sure that the lower belts succeed and learn technique. I started as a white belt. I had no idea about Jiu Jitsu.
Coach Ryan Fortin, he has a wealth of knowledge. He’s very personable, down to earth, very easy to speak to. After class, if you ask him to go over something with you, he’ll do that. No questions asked. Yeah, everybody’s really friendly here and they just focus on your success. If you want a good workout with something to learn, it’s a great place to do it. I don’t even know what to say. I’m hella nervous, man.
