My buddy from work turned me onto to Granada Hills for Gracie Jiu-jitsu. I'm hooked!
John is simply the best! I have been searching for a "home" of the martial arts for years. As i searched for the right style or method to train, it seemed that the latest trend here in Ventura was either Brazilian JiuJitsu or TKD. I am 50yrs old so neither of these styles would be practical for me or for practical self-defense on the street. I have been with John for close to a year now and found a place to learn a style that is custom fitted to my age, body type, and budget. There is NO PRESSURE here, only only patience and well planned instruction for ME. In my opinion, John's style and systems of martial arts are very beautiful in use and make common sense...simple and direct. His lineage from Bruce Lee is documented. Its always fun to hear all the true stories about Bruce Lee. The Granger system of total health is "Simply The Best"!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Ricardo Miller for several years now and I can say that he is one of the best instructor's in the sport today. He is always there for his students and he is one of the most dedicated coaches you will ever find. He is at all of the competitions and is also a well respected tournament referee. The Paragon academy is one of the most respected out there so I am giving this my full endorsement. If you have an interest in learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu then this is one of the best places to go!
James was very professional. I really like his attention to detail and his passion for Jiu Jitsu.
Amazing people...community leaders!

This is very different from other traditional or martial arts schools because this style emphasizes on the reality of self-defense rather than how to defend yourself in a controlled idealistic situation. Every drill and every exercise that is taught by the school translates to real combat applications such as sparring, sticky hands free flow, and self defense reactions. On the first day I was blown away by Sifu Lin's demonstration of impluse power how he doesn't need muscle or body weight to release the energy from his hand to the opponent causing much discomfort and pain. Looking forward to more hours of intense training!
The American Kenpo Jiu Jitsu Academy opened in 1990, and for over two decades, we have been serving the community, helping hundreds of children, teenagers and adults to develop confidence, respect, focus, concentration, physical fitness, and other unique benefits of a martial arts education. As instructors, we make a commitment to our community: We do whatever it takes to help each student become successful, not only in the martial arts, but also "achieving their black belt and beyond" in every area of life. In their own words (Feedback from our students and their families): "I love that the instructor are great with the smaller kids while maintaining a healthy and reasonable level of discipline and respect in class. "I have see my 4 year old participate in class and practice at home, but watching him during testing was a source of great pride; to see him put his best foot forward in front of peers and older, much older than himself, was priceless. "American Kenpo Jiu Jitsu Academy has been a great outlet not just for burning energy or keeping busy, but to learn discipline outside the parent-child realm." Lynn S. - Kids Program "I would like to take this opportunity to thank the teachers, Mohamad and Jose, for my daughter, Reiko's amazing transformation! This is a very significant, before-and-after story. I encourage all parents, who raised their child to be a responsible, productive and polite citizen in this world, to consider enrolling their child. "Our daughter is a kind and gentle spirit raised with morals, integrity and principles any parent would be proud of; unfortunately, her kindness and good nature made her an easy target for those individuals who were not raised with similar values. "After a few months of training at the academy, she acquired the confidence and strength to be able to stand up for herself, for what is right and even to stand up for others who were not able to defend themselves! "Armed not with weapons, but with the confidence that springs from self-respect, loyalty, discipline and honor, she now has the tools to better face the challenges of this world. "Any parent who wants to invest in his or her child's future should consider investing in martial arts. This is not a trendy gift, but rather, one that transcends and is life altering!" Respectfully, Mary and Andrew K. - Juniors Program "I can't thank Mohamed and Jose for all they have taught me over the past few months. I have come to realize that within me, I have the inner power to change myself for the better. "Mohamed's teachings and techniques help a student to learn about their inner strengths and weakness, while continuing to build confidence in the art of American kenpo and jujitsu. Jose was not only patient, but very knowledgeable in his skills as well, always willing to stick by my side until I got the technique perfected. "I look forward to hearing more success stories of the new students and recurring students who have found their own inner power because of the great teachings of the American Kenpo and Jujitsu Academy in Woodland Hills. "All my best to future students, Jose and Mohamed. Thank you for all you have taught me!" Sincerely, Leslie R. - Adults Program "American Kenpo Jiu Jitsu is a great martial art form, and I enjoy the constant challenge and learning. Everyone at the academy helps one another, and we really have a great group of instructors and students that evolved over the years. "It is the best! "The instructors are great, the knowledge and understanding of kenpo and jiu-jitsu, the process of learning, the exercise, challenge, friendships, and great teachers make this the only place for me to train." Norm K. - Adults Program
