our customers say it best:
  • I have known Ron for well over 10 years. He was at my first class when I was a white belt and even then he was extremely helpful and helped develop my game. His work ethic in class is excellent and even when he wasn't teaching and this was not his job he was extremely dedicated, driving 30-45 minutes one way after working all day just to train and learn. Now that he is teaching you can rest assured his program is second to none and that you are learning from the best. –Clayton Phillips

  • As his professor and friend I can truly say : I known Ron since day one in jiu-jitsu (2002) It has been a long journey and I am proud to see his outstanding work at the new school. I highly recommend his place. If you are looking to learn a great self-defense curriculum, this is the place as he represent my work of 27+ years in Palm Beach Gardens area . Please stop for a free introductory class.–Mauricio Rilion Gracie

  • What a great class for kids! Ron, the instructor is so great with the kids - and so patient. He makes it fun for them and I can see how his kids class can really develop their self-confidence and esteem. He promotes a real camaraderie between all the kids too. I'd recommend this class to any parent for their children, boys and girls.–Connie F.

  • Great place to train, I walked in and never left. Kids class is the best around. This is not a gym it's a family. –James W.

  • I walked in here one day with no experience or expectation. It was before any classes had started so no one was there except for Ron, who was cleaning the mats. He greeted me with a handshake and a smile and took the time to not only explain how beneficial Jiu-Jitsu is to my future career, but how it translates into almost every facet of life. He explained he runs his school in a safe, family atmosphere with an end goal of producing confident and productive members of society; however, that goal isn't accomplished without hard work and dedication from all. I joined and was happy to see that Ron wasn't lying! I've been training here for months now, gained a whole new skillset, lost weight, and made some great friends. As a former elementary school teacher, I was very impressed with how engaging the kids classes are given the large spectrum of age, skill, and abilities. Try a class, you will not regret it!–Martin H.

  • Rilion Gracie Jiu Jitsu PBG is awesome! Both my husband and son go here! Our son has been there going on three years and has grown so much. He is so much more confident. The coaches are wonderful, patient with just the right amount of push to keep the kids and adults going! I recommend anyone looking for a great workout, more confidence and great coaches this is the place!–Kristin B.

  • I met Ron (owner and head instructor) in 2006 and am proud to have been his training partner since then. His technical understanding of jiu jitsu, combined with his years as a law enforcement professional and a life devoted to physical fitness, give him a unique perspective as a martial arts instructor. You would be hard-pressed to find someone equally qualified, whether you are interested in getting an intense workout like no other, becoming a world-class jiu jitsu competitor, or learning real world self-defense to protect yourself or your loved ones. Most importantly, Ron is a true gentle giant, immensely supportive of his students, and dedicated to improving the lives of the people around him. I can attest to this, because I would not have achieved my dream of becoming an IBJJF certified Black Belt were it not for his help. Check him out; you won’t regret it.–Don BJJ
