New GST Testimonial from Chicago

Feburary 18, 2014

Chicago PD Officer Shares Her Thoughts on GST Teaching Style

Dear Ryron,

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the valuable lessons I learned this past week at the GST class in Phoenix. Your style of teaching made me feel very comfortable learning the basic techniques of jiu jitsu. I was extremely apprehensive about participating in this training because I am not confident in my ability to perform any type of martial art. I never was involved in anything that resembles martial arts because honestly; it scared me. I grew up playing traditional American sports. However, after participating in GST and your style of teaching BJJ with positive reinforcement, it really gave me the confidence to continue training jiu jitsu. Though I know I have a very, very long way before I become decent at it; I look forward in seeing where I can take this training and becoming stronger.

I think if I had been exposed to a trainer whose teaching style was more of a drill Sgt barking out orders, I would not have the confidence I have now to continue. So, again, I thank you for that!

Take care and keep up the great work!

Katie C.
