VERDE VALLEY BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, like Life in general, is a journey filled with obstacles worth navigating.

It’s a journey of self discovery.

VERDE VALLEY BJJ WAS ESTABLISHED TO SERVE AS A STARTING POINT towards each of those personal discoveries. You just need to take the first step.

For Self Defense. For Sport. For Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Growth. For Life.

MICHAEL HOET: KICKBOXING


With almost 15 years in competition, it felt natural to me to become a trainer and share my knowledge, skills, and experience with others. I transformed full contact and kick boxing into a softer discipline of flexibility and self defense training.  As a trainer, I am motivated to give classes in the traditional way as well as in the transformed way to fit everyone's goals.
