From day one, Grand Valley Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has been embraced by the community.

After moving fromTexas, our founder, Kevin Lewis, began teaching at a local gym. He quickly made an impact and, before long, his students encouraged him to open a school of his own. Kevin took their advice, opening Grand Valley BJJ in September of 2013. But what started out as a side hustle soon became a full-time gig. Five years later, Grand Valley BJJ had grown immensely and we decided it was time our space did too. After expanding into another unit and doubling our mat space, Grand Valley is now home to about 300 students!

We have loved sharing our passion for the martial arts throughout this past decade, and can’t wait to continue changing lives – one technique at a time.

  • I feel that training with Tyler Veatch and Cameron Thurgood I can be a successful fighter! The curriculum really sharpens the technique and makes you understand why it works.

  • Because some of the guys were attending back to back classes they were a little winded so Kevin let me roll with him. This is a great place to learn and has an awesome community
