I recently visited the Elk Grove area from my home in the central San Joaquin Valley. I was referred to Waza BJJ by my instructor who knew of Derek DiManno's reputation as a competitor and instructor. I had the pleasure of spending two weeks training under Derek and saw first hand his passion for not only Jiu-Jitsu but for his students. His knowledge of Jiu-Jitsu is extraordinary as his ability to translate his techniques to the different levels of students. I regularly visit the Waza BJJ website to watch Derk's highlight videos which are both impressive and motivational for me to continue with my own training. The academy is very nice and provides both a professional and relaxed atmosphere to learn from a top level instructor.

I have been training in martial arts for over twenty years, and I can say that Waza Jiu-Jitsu is a great place to train. I have been trainingat Waza for almost one year. Derek DiManno, the head instructor, is not only a great Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, but also a great teacher. Even if you are brand new, he will make you feel right at home and take great care of you. Everyone at Waza is very friendly and welcoming. You can still be competitive, without having to worry about tough-guy egos. I highly recommend Waza to anyone interested in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and I know I will be there for years to come!

I have been studying at Waza Jiu Jitsu for almost a year now, and I all I can really say is that I'm hooked on Jiu Jitsu! Whether you just want to learn something new or you want to get in better shape (I've lost 60 pounds myself) this is the place for you. From day one the students here are happy to see you every time you show up and encourage you every step of the way, But the main reason that I am having this much fun learning is because of Owner/Instrutor Derek DiManno. Not only does he have a vast knowledge of BJJ, but he teaches in a way that you can understand, whether if it's your first class or you have been there for a year? Just trust me and give it a week, I know you get hooked as well!

For anyone looking to get into Jiu Jitsu or understand the predominant style in Mixed Martial Arts, this is the place to be. Waza is an ego free Jiu Jitsu gym, which is hard to come by these days, that is accepting of practitioners at all levels. Derek (owner) does a fantastic job of facilitating the lessons, offering individual attention and creating a sense of community amongst his students. Everyone is helpful including the other participants in classes. Not only is the gym enjoyable to be a part of, it absolutely produces results. My proficiency in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has grown exponentially compared to other gym I have been associated with.

My highest recommendation.
