Pete "The Greek" and the students at Rio Jiu Jitsu have made a big difference in my life for the last 7 years. It took time, persistence and Pete "The Greek". He recent built an amazing new gym with one of the biggest mat space in the Midwest. The atmosphere is friendly, constructive and he is very careful about who he allows to be a student at Rio.

The instructors here are eager to teach whatever your skill level may be and they will give you an amazing workout. Pete the Greek is extremely knowledgable. This is the best place around for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
