It is extremely sad to end with CJA. Blake started when he was 4 years old, and is now almost 11. Thank you for the incredible training and classes over the years. It’s been an absolute pleasure! Thank you Mike and Alex!

Zander was 9 jaar oud toe hy met jiu-jitsu begin het. Julle uitstekende afrigting en die sport het vir hom soveel selfvertroue en selfdissipline geleer. Wonderlike ervaring omdat jul opleiding holisties is – sluit die fisiese, verstandelike en emosionele komponente in. Jiu-jitsu het Zander se tiener jare in ‘n groot mate gevorm. Hy het natuurlik ook wonderlike vriende oor die 6.5 jaar gemaak. Ons is werklik baie dankbaar en bevoorreg dat Zander deel can die CJA span kon wees. Ons wens julle tonne voorspoed en seën vir die toekoms toe. Ons gaan jul baie mis en hoop om gou weer by jul aan te sluit sodra die pandemie probleme deel van die verlede is

Everything has a season, and the season has passed unfortunately for my son with CJA, he enjoyed whilst being there, but he lost his mojo after the pandemic. CJA played a vital role in grooming him to be more matured and took him out of his shy-ness and I thank you Alex and team for that. God bless you and pray that you will grow from strength to strength.

CJA has taught me everything I know on the mat, and is much like Sunday School! The passion and dedication Mike and Alex have for the students is admirable and I will definitely be flying the banner for CJA into the future.

Thanks guys for your dedication and passion through the years, it was not an easy decision to pull Etienne out [due to Covid] – we will definitely be poorer for it. All the best.

Coach Alex is absolutely fantastic with the kids and has made a big impact in my son’s life. We are sad that there are no more classes due to the current situation and hope that in the future life will normalize to a point where classes can resume.

Thank you for your excellent service, we will be back as soon as things are back to normal Alex has been an excellent coach and influence on Reece, if it was not for COVID-19, and personal changes we would have continued. I wish the CJA team well during these tough times that are impacting us all.

Kyron’s achievements in Jiu Jitsu is purely 100% a reflection of the passion, discipline, skill and integrity in which Alex coaches. Firm but friendly, strong but soft, fun and serious…. and you can literally see this in any class. K knew nothing about this form of Martial Arts and has gained so much experience and knowledge is such a short time. Also I need to mention that Mike standing to watch and support Kyron at his last competition in different forms of Martial Arts shows the respect and passion for all forms and clearly shows the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Thank you and bless you and your CJA family.

Julia (9) had her first chance to enter a Jiu- Jitsu tournament and has been counting the days. It was a mix of nervousness and excitement. On the day we spend the first few hours watching the older groups ( men ) as they showed their skills. “WOW” was all Julia could say!
When her age group was to start, she watched the first 2 girls. Her face at this point was more nervousness than excitement.. yikes. We kept reminding her to just remember what Alex had taught her in the class and stick to that. When she had her turn, she took one deep breath and put on her game face.
I was nervous for her , and don’t think we realized how tough the girls can be. BUT I was so proud, she did everything she learned in class and I was astonished at how much skills she learned since she started in November 2018.  She had to tap out, the girl had her in a choke and she just could not get out. Once tapped out, the tears came. Some tears and pep talk management after her match, and all is ok.

Now, with all of the above, there were certain things that stood out for us: The CJA members attitudes – no matter where you went. Disciplined, friendly and approachable. This was amazing and super glad to be part the CJA team.

We as parents are really proud, and grateful for the skills you have taught her so far, especially that doing your best and having fun is more important than anything else, such as winning
