Ryan is awesome! I'm so glad I started working with him. In just 3 sessions I've learned so much- he pushes me without over doing it. He is attentive, knowledgeable, and super approachable. His overall education, experience, and professional demeanor make him extremely well rounded as a fitness professional. His workouts are both challenging and fun. Hire this guy if you are ready to see life-changing results .

When I contacted Dr. Ali few months ago, I had been recovering from chronic back pain (Herniated Disc) with a goal to get fit, get strong, get more confident and reinvigorate but like any novice I had a fear of getting hurt from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I made him aware of it and he made sure that he clearly explained different aspects of BJJ’s basic moves and positions and never made me feel out of place. I have seen myself make progress with each session. Dr. Ali has made it very fulfilling from a personal and physical standpoint through repetition & positive reinforcement Give it a shot, like myself, you won't regret it. I highly recommend him for all your Martial Arts/Self-Defense/Fitness needs

Been training with Dave for about 3 years. Through that time I have had increase of confidence, more power with striking and kicking, and even more of a tactical mind when it comes to sparing. Dave treats and speaks to me as an adult, and always willing to help me improve in areas of weakness both felt and observed. Never is a lesson nor the time wasted.

Awesome place to train. Safe, clean, ego free. In 2 years at RMJJ, lost over 100 pounds and learned self defense. Jiu jitsu is the best decision I ever made.

Having trained in traditional, sport, and street oriented martial arts, and having used these skills on the job I have found Seibukan Jujutsu to be the most comprehensive art form for training practical skills as well as the mind and spirit. Sensei Legato is a very knowledgeable Sensei who has spent years honing not only his martial knowledge and skill, but also his intellect and spirit. Having been a student with and of Alex I can attest to his eagerness to learn and share all aspects of traditional and modern martial arts and self defense. Sensei Legato cultivates in himself and others the "white belt" mentality of an open heart and mind held by the greatest masters. You can find no better teacher or art!
