Our roots run deep....

S.I.M.S. Martial Arts Academy,

This academy has been a dream of mine since I stepped on the mats at 6 years old. 

The first art I learned was jiujitsu. My first instructor. Shihan Daryl Johnson, an inspirational figure without a doubt. Changed my life. One of the first lessons was to always be learning and always improving. The school motto was simply : "Adapt and Survive" Self-Defense at its finest. 

3 decades later and still on the mats, I've gained a tremendous amount of experience, knowledge, and technique to share with everyone. I've been a devoted student to the technical details of the arts for 3 decades now. I've earned multiple black belts in multiple styles. I can say that at this moment in my martial arts career I am completely obsessed with the art of jiujitsu. 

Training under the living legend Eddie Bravo, spreading 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu, and being the regions first black belt under Eddie has completely humbled and reshaped my jiujitsu journey. I'm incredibly indebted to Eddie for helping me realize my vision and always supporting my students in their endeavors. 

I began teaching private lessons in my mothers garage at 16 years old. These private lessons turned into a garage full of classes. At 25 I began our first academy and introduced 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu to the Midwest. Ever since we have taken the jiujitsu scene by storm creating some of the areas best grappling talents. 

Our unique and family oriented approach to training and teaching, has built our academy into a jiujitsu powerhouse. Our students come from all walks of life and our decades of instruction experience allows us to truly help anyone reach their goals.

About Our Family.

My mother originally helped me created and operate my academy.  My dad as the maintenance man and soon after my Family friends and original students, the Lopez Family.  

As our academy grew My wife and myself operating the academy became fortunate enough to bring in Anthony Lopez as our full time youth instructor. Anthony Lopez and his family had been my original starting students nearly 20 years ago. Anthony grew up within the dojo's beginnings starting at 3 years of age. His mother and father trained and between them all became ranked and respected members of the 10th Planet community. 

Anthony and Myself are the main instructors along with his fathers help and many other students with years of experience and family bonds being part of this academy. 

At this moment my daughter now after 7 years has been training under my Top student, Anthony, in our own kids classes continuing this family tradition now into a 3rd generation. 

We are committed to continuing our craft in the spirit it was built. Our dojo is rooted in deep jiujitsu traditions. Technique above everything and building character through the process.
