"Iowa City Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a fantastic place to train BJJ. I was in Iowa City for 2 months for an internship and tried out a class at ICBJJ. After just one class, I knew this was going to be a great place to improve my BJJ. Jason Clarke is an incredible teacher, and he does a great job of sharing his passion with all of his students. Just 2 months of training here took both my BJJ and MMA skills to a much higher level. I would not hesitate to recommend ICBJJ to anyone wanting to learn or improve their BJJ." – Chris, MMA Fighter & Physical Therapy Student
"Although I trained Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Jason at ICBJJ for over a year, it took less than a week for me to become completely hooked. BJJ has near-universal appeal. Training in BJJ got me into the best shape of my life, including cardiovascular fitness and endurance, total-body functional strength, and flexibility and mobility. BJJ, more so than the multitude of other martial arts I've experimented with, will teach you incredibly practical self-defense.” – Anthony, PhD Candidate
"An excellent instructor and facility. If you want to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with a Judo combination, then you found the only place in Iowa that teaches the Ribeiro Brothers style. The atmosphere is cool, the members have a great attitude, are friendly and ready to roll. Jason Clarke is the lead instructor and I would recommend ICBJJ to anyone young or old" – John, Cedar Rapids, IA
"My wife and I were looking for a place our daughter could learn self defense, gain confidence in herself, make friends and get into better shape. We discovered Iowa City Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to be the perfect fit for all of those things. The instructor, Jason Clarke, is everything you could ever hope for in an instructor. He is patient, dedicated, focused, a great teacher, connects with every student and genuinely cares about each child. He makes an ideal role model for his students.” – Clint, Iowa City, IA
"My introduction to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu began as a TV viewer. Over time I became a fan, but I never truly understood the intricacies of the competition. I couldn't understand why someone couldn't escape their opponent's submission attempts; it sure looked easy enough. I decided that the only way to understand is to try BJJ myself. I found ICBJJ online and nearly a year later I am so glad I did. Jason has taught me an incredible amount in such a short time. And in hindsight, I hardly understood Jiu-Jitsu when I first started.” – Max, Graduate Student
