I Have been training with Professor Joao Assis since 2010, best decision I've ever made.Professor Joao is a world class Black Belt competitor and a world class instructor.He has created an amazing atmosphere at Electric Jiu Jitsu, there's nothing but good vibes and solid training.The classes and techniques are suited for all levels from Beginners to Advanced. There's absolutely no ego in this academy so don't be afraid to stop by and introduce yourself.We aren't just a Team , We are Family, We are Checkmat.
I've been training here for 2 years and since the first time I stepped on the mat I felt like family! Professor Joao Assis is one of the best around, he really takes pride in his students success and teaches from his heart! Jiu Jitsu has changed my life, not only have I lost 50 lbs but have gained confidence and strength. My son has also been training here and is really growing in his journey, he is confident, a better student, and I never have to worry about him being bullied. They have classes for everyone and it is never too late to start! If I can do it, anyone can! I would highly recommend Electric Jiu Jitsu to everyone.
This is my third BJJ school, I previously took lessons from two other schools in Sacramento which were also great. However, I moved to SoCal and I wanted to smaller, friendly environment school with a competitive edge for my kids and myself. After visiting other schools in the area, I decided to go with Electric Jiu Jitsu. The kids classes are excellent, there are two kids classes on Mon, Weds, Fri. One for younger kids and one for a little older and more advanced kids. For kids who compete at tournaments, they have a Tues & Thurs class.The adult classes are amazing as well, they are 1.5 hours with 45 min of warm-ups/instruction and 45 min of rolling, followed by 15-20 minutes of open mat if you want to roll more. The instructors, Professor Assis, Coach Sid and Coach Miles are amazing teachers and care a lot for the kids and adult students.Its worth checking out this school if you are in HB, there's a free week trial and no pressure to sign up, nothing to lose!
First of all I want to say Professor Joao is an awesome coach because he focuses on each person and helps them individually. He has also welcomed any questions I have ever had. I love training in CoEd classes but I think it's awesome there is now girls only classes!! Girls are all very sweet and at ALL levels. Anyone is welcome to come as well and I believe this has helped improved my game by practicing with other women.
The people here are great and so is the training.feels like im back home with my family. Top notch instructions. There's a real focus on developing the right type of game for the individual competitor as well. Joao Assis is a great teacher and knows how to motivate and push everyone to become better weather their goal is competition or to learn as a hobby. I've been training at electric jiu jitsu for almost 8 months and this is just about the best training I've gotten anywhere.
High quality Jiu-Jitsu instruction by an elite grappler. Joao Assis is the current Abu-Dhabi and Grapplers Quest Champion. He is one of the most decorated competitors in the area and brings his same passion for competing as he does in his instruction. The same effort on the mat is there in his instruction.
I feel very fortunate to train at a place like this. The training is competitive but friendly with a family like atmosphere. Joao is one of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Competitors on this planet. He has helped me so much with my Jiu-Jitsu probably more than any instructor I've ever learned from and I firmly believe that he can help you whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner. On top of that the group of guys and gals are all awesome and friendly. Come try it out. You will not be dissappointed.
I came to LA from Brazil for the worlds and have been hanging back since then. I trained this past week with Joao assis and his guys and had a great time.
Joao himself was extremely welcoming and also showed some great techniques and also some solid BJJ principles that I will carry with me in the future.
The rest of the guys there were also really friendly and made me feel like I was part of the team from day one.
To sum it all up Electric has great BJJ instruction, a group of high level players and a great atmosphere. I highly recommend it!
Joao Assis is in an elite group of fighters at the top of his game. Training with him is a privilege!
It's a pleasure to train with Joao. Not only is he in the highest percentage of elite grapplers in the world, but he really cares about his students getting better and improving. His style of attacking is very unique and learning from him is an honor. Joao helped my game personally in so many ways and is a great friend. Train at Electric and you won't be sorry! - Tom Cronin
