Introduction: MOBILE SERVICES FOR MOST OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY. ACCESS TO A TRAINING SPACE IN EL CAJON. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPLIT THE COST OF LESSONS BUT DON'T HAVE A PARTNER, PLEASE CONTACT ME TO SEE IF I CAN PAIR YOU UP WITH SOMEONE. Hi, my name is Joshua Williams, owner of Logos MMA. I am Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt, under Alfredo Barum. I started training at a professional level in 2002 in BJJ and MMA and have a 5-2 record in Pro MMA. I also have strong wrestling and kickboxing skills to pass on to students, having been a CIF runner up in high school wrestling, training in Tang Su Do from an early age, and continuing with MMA-tailored Mauy Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, Judo, etc. I can teach BJJ/grappling with the gi or without the gi. I am a very patient teacher. I have taught adults, teens, and kids. I have worked in special education schools, and run after school programs. So, if you are looking for private instruction for your kids, I am well qualified for that also. I have been certified as a personal trainer through Ace and have studied kinesilogy/exercise science, so I have a good level of knowledge of the human body. I have a 10'x10' portable mat (4 of them actually) , Thai pads and boxing mitts for striking, and extra boxing gloves. BEFORE EACH SESSION, I WILL BE TAKING MY TEMPERATURE. I AM ALSO WILLING TO WEARING A FACE COVERING FOR STRIKING TRAINING. For in-home training, I am happy to provide clients with photos of my CA guard card (which requires livescan) and ID. I have also completed the background check with Thumbtack. I can do in-home private lessons for individuals or small groups. Sessions are at least one hour. If your goal is self-defense, then the best way to achieve it is to understand the most realistic forms of attack and defense, so BJJ/MMA training is a must! If your goal is cardio-vascular fitness, then BJJ/MMA training is the most effortless, natural, and enjoyable way! I teach in very systematic way, and progress everything at the pace of the individual student. So you will always feel supported with just the right level of challenge to keep you engaged. Thanks for reading. I look forward to sharing my knowledge. Joshua

Private Self Defense Lessons

I’ve done 20 sessions with Joshua and could not recommend him more. Always on time. Very detail oriented. Always a calm and friendly demeanor. Our session were always fun and a great workout. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from him and would recommend him to anyone looking to learn or improve their martial arts.

We started with Logos over a year ago and the experience has been fantastic! Jiu jitsu with my son (almost 6 years old now) has been fantastic. I have witnessed a great amount of growth while maintaining an atmosphere appropriate to his age. My son looks forward to class and is learning respect and discipline in an unforced manner. I already have and will continue to recommend this school to anyone. My wife and I recently started lessons in kickboxing, and it has been an equally awesome experience with perfect pacing.

Joshua is an experienced teacher, mma athlete and martial artist. My skill and conditioning improved with every lesson. He is a trustworthy and honorable person who genuinely enjoys teaching students of all levels. It was refreshing to have the opportunity to train one on one with such an experienced coach.

To whom this may concern: I reached out to Joshua a couple of years ago off of a Craigslist add. After the first conversation/meeting I could tell he is a deep spiritual individual with a great moral compass! I have been training MMA/JiuJitsu with Joshua consistently since first meeting. Joshua is patient, communicative, thorough, and very knowledgeable. Joshua's exercise tips, diet tips and mental support is second to NONE! I feel blessed that over the time we've been training, Joshua has became a life time friend and confidant. I feel certain that on any level you choose Joshua's services you will feel value, care, confidence, self motivation, and most certainly feel the capability of defending your honer as well as others! Whether you are looking to, exercise, self defense, feel motivated, start your JiuJitsu journey, feel AMAZING or on the road to UFC! Joshua" services will absolutely be needed! Joshua has trained my kiddos and you can defiantly feel safe in knowing they are with him! Probably the safest bet really! 0:) Sincerely Matthew Kifer

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rate for a one-hour session is $90 (for one or two people). That covers travel to clients within a 10 mile radius of 92019. Additional travel charge is $1 per mile past 10, one way. I offer bulk discounts for packs, longer sessions, or back-to-back sessions at the same place. I DO NOT COUNT SET-UP AND BREAKDOWN OF MATS AGAINST THE SESSION TIME. YOU ONLY PAY FOR TIME RECCIEVING INSTRUCTION. PRIVATE GROUP TRAINING: Small private groups are the best value. My per-hour rate is higher overall for training 3 people or more at a time, but the cost is still less per person. Please provide the details of your group for a custom quote.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I will ask your experience and fitness level, and if you have an limitations, or need specific accommodations. I will ask your goals, make suggestions, and tailor a program to you accordingly. If you are a beginner, we will start with an overview and some basic concepts, so you will have a framework to hold and orient information- Like a road map, so you can see where we are headed, and eventually start to see the big picture. Initially, you will learn fundamental techniques that are the most effective and often used at all levels. As we progress, we can specialize more according to your individual aptitude, attributes, and preferences. My goal is for you to eventually be a martial artist. My job is to guide you on that journey. Eventually, part of that will be for me to allow for your own creativity, whenever it aligns with the principles that drive effective martial arts. I look forward to that day when I see you start to spread your wings! OSS!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, under Alfredo Barum, in the Carlos Gracie lineage. 5-2 record in Pro MMA (fights were Total Combat and Gladiator Challenge. My Sherdog profile can be found searching "Joshua Matthew Williams" , but does not list my 2014 win in Gladiator Challenge). Training in BJJ, MMA, Muay Thai, boxing since 2002. Purple belt in Tang Su Do (Korean Karate) at age 16 when I stopped to focus on wrestling. Second place in 1999 CIF high school wrestling (160 lbs). ACE personal training certification in 2013 or so, but have not renewed since I am really just focused on martial arts. Some kinesiology/sports medicine classes at City College.
