When I opened the OBJJ in 2014, I could not have imagined how it would take shape. Since then it has grown into a community of people who amaze and inspire me every single day. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a mentor and coach and hope that the OBJJ community continues to grow in unimaginable ways.

Below I have included some thoughts from greater men who helped shape in my mind what OBJJ would become.
— Andre Grandbois, Owner and Head Coach


He has achieved success who has lived well,
laughed often and loved much;
who has enjoyed the trust of pure women,
the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
who has left the world better than he found it,
whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty
or failed to express it;
who has always looked for the best in others
and given them the best he had;
whose life was an inspiration;
whose memory is a benediction.
— Robert Louis Stevenson
