Luis and Erin and dedicated practitioners to the sport and art of Jiujitsu. They are not only professionals but superb people. They come with the highest recommendation. If I lived in the area, they would be coaching both of my children.

I just signed up with GAB, as Luis was highly recommended by my close friend. After talking to Luis on the phone for 10 mins, I could hear his passion for BJJ as well as his professionalism. One thing I've noticed about this art, the further people advance, and the more time they are involved, the more humble they become, it truly is amazing.
Looking forward to the grand opening and the grind.

Met Luis when i was living in Florida attending school. I was a blue belt he was a brown. I’m never going to forget how he went out of his way to answer questions i had on certain moves or certain positions, just because he “loved jiu jitsu and wanted to spread the art.” He’d stay before or after with me for as much as 20 minutes sometimes. That really stuck with me. Some of these moves he showed me years ago i still use! This is a guy who’s a CLASS ACT and a GREAT PERSON . Cannot recommend him enough!!!

I️ am still taking private lessons with Coach Luis and Erin Harpe and I️ have seen my technique sky rocket with their knack of breaking down the fundamentals so I can better understand and able to continually excel in this art. I’ve never felt so inspired to learn more until I️ met these two. I’ve known them since I️ started my journey and when it comes to teaching or just everyday life struggles these two are loyal til the very end. I️ can’t wait for the 24th!
