World Class Training
I am a student in Worcester MA. I train with Gabriel Gonzaga 5 nights a week. The world class coaching you will receive is precise, technical and is easily understanding for all levels of training. The training atmosphere is perfect for anyone wishing to either, find a new hobby, get in better shape or even train at the competition level. Gabriel Gonzaga is a world champion that knows exactly what to look for, so that you can effectively learn the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiujitsu all while having fun in a safe environment. Squared BJJ is the best training I have ever received. I would highly recommend joining this team.
