"I love training at Gael Force!  I have been doing the kickboxing class the past 4 months and it has been worth my time, money, and energy.  The gym is very clean and everyone is friendly and welcoming.  The instructors go out of their way to ensure you are learning proper kickboxing technique and form where you really appreciate the art of fighting.  It is also a great workout.  I highly recommend trying out a class, you won’t regret it."

Alex is an amazing person. He has this ability, with an amazing mixture of calm and intensity, to delve deeply into the complex and nuanced details of BJJ and bring you along for the ride. I walk away from every class with the knowledge that everything I just learned will either take only a short time to master or be immediately useful. He has a deep understanding of self defense, competitive/sport Jiu Jitsu and is able to create, via his extremely motivated personality, a learning environment that is both challenging and rewarding. If you are looking for a fun environment or experience that will help you as you endeavor to improve the varied aspects of your life, that we all seek to improve upon, Gael Force is definitely a place for you.

It’s no surprise to me that Alex’s profession was teaching. I was very impressed with the comprehensive beginner’s curriculum he developed, and amazed by the individualized progression plans that he creates with each of his students. Alex has the rare ability to translate complex movements and techniques into simple steps that are easy to digest. His style of teaching is fun and effective, and the individual attention he gives to his students is invaluable. He is a wealth of knowledge and his deep understanding of the art is evident in the way that he can identify and correct the more subtle and advanced details you may be missing. Whether you’re looking to just have fun and get in shape, to learn effective real-world self-defense, or strive to become a high-level competitor, I highly recommend you come check out Gael Force Jiu Jitsu.
