Absolutely amazing school, in both classes offered and the welcoming community found within. Other students will help you get the basics, give advice and all around aid in your jiujitsu journey. Being able to open roll from white belt as this school provides gives you an opportunity to learn quickly. Pricing is more than affordable for the amount provided, classes are all at convenient times so that no matter your schedule you can at least spend some time on the mats It doesn't just stop at Jiujitsu, the Muay Thai Class offered here is a phenomenal way to learn striking from beginner to advanced they will help you improve. Professor Sean and Coach Josh have curated an environment that is welcoming and promotes hard work.

Dropped in for a couple sessions while in the area for work, Professor Shawn was very welcoming and everyone there contributed to a very positive environment. Highly recommended as a place for those new to jiu jitsu, as they treated white belts like me with lots of respect and patience!

I spent a few days training there in Sept while vising family in CDA. It's definitely one of the best gyms I've ever been to. The atmosphere is incredibly welcoming and everyone is a beast on the mats. Professor Shawn is not only super down-to-earth but also has an extensive depth of knowledge of the game. I highly recommend this gym to anyone looking to train in CDA.

I travel a lot, and I drop into a lot of BJJ gyms as a result. I dropped into this gym many times during the week when I was visiting my parents. If I lived in Coeur D’Alene, this would be the gym I would train at. I walked in the door and Professor Shawn welcomed me warmly. His students also instantly treated me like I was family. All my training partners took good care of me and were obviously considerate of my safety and well-being. This is more than just a family-friendly place where people gather; the jiu jitsu is exceptional. Professor Shawn’s style and personal investment in each of his students is evident in their performance on the mats. Professors Shawn’s students were performing techniques and paying attention to important details at a higher level than I typically see at other gyms. The white belts were a tough roll too. If I was new to BJJ and trying to become capable quickly, I would be gravitating toward CDA jiu jitsu. It’s also clear that they work on their takedowns. Even their newest students had options when working from their feet, which is increasingly rare at BJJ schools. The gym has enough students that there is a wide variety of skill levels present, which is an important part of improving your own BJJ skillset. The facility is clean and spacious, and the mats are very high quality. If you’re looking for a place to train with skillful, tough, and kind training partners, I would give CDA jiu jitsu your most serious consideration. I can’t say enough good things about the efficacy of their skills, and the friendly goodness of the culture. I was grateful to have a high quality gym to train at while visiting CDA.
