“Starting my training in BJJ at the age of 41..."
“ “Starting my training in BJJ at the age of 41 was a little later than most, so from the beginning, I wanted to make the most efficient use of my time on the mat and accelerate my learning as much as possible. Taking weekly private lessons with Jean has delivered better and faster results than I ever imagined. “

“ I couldn't imagine Kimura not being a part of my life..."
“ One night I walked into Kimura BJJ after work to see what the school had to offer, that was over two years ago and I couldn't imagine Kimura not being a part of my life today. I look forward to training any chance I get, not just for the fact that it's the best BJJ school in the country but also for the fact that the people who I train with have become an extended family. The school's founder and owner Jean Kleber has an amazing ability to not only instruct, but to instill his own passion and excitement into his students as well. “

“ I'd always wanted to take up a martial art..."
"I'd always wanted to take up a martial art and a few years ago I started judo classes. After a while it was clear I enjoyed the ground grappling the most. I'd spoken with a few people and they all highly recommended Kimura in Watertown. It definitely lived up to its reputation as a first-class Brazilian JiuJitsu training center and I'm thrilled to have added it to my training routine. Read More..... - Kate Deforest
"To put it simply, Kimura BJJ has changed my life"
When started my first class at Kimura a year and a half ago I weighed around 235 lbs and most of that was fat and had nearly a 40 inch waist. I could hardly make it through the warm-up portion of that class I was so out of shape. Now at present I weigh in at 200 lbs with a 34 inch waist and often participate in back to back classes.

"I can honestly say that Kimura is the best"
"I started training at the Kimura BJJ Academy with Master Jean in 2006. I've trained at several other martial arts schools, including other Brazilian jiu-jitsu ones, and I can honestly say that Kimura is the best. Too often, there are instructors with great skill but absolutely no teaching ability. " Read More..... - Stanley Chen

“ Kimura is simply a great place to train"
“ Kimura is simply a great place to train. I\'ve been since 2006 and Kimura stood out from the other schools I tried on day one. The techniques are always explained clearly and completely, questions are always answered thoroughly, and training is rigorous without feeling like you\'ve joined the Army. Another very important aspect is that the attitude during training accommodates everyone\'s goals and backgrounds. Someone\'s always willing to train hard, someone else is always willing to train light, and no one is ever trying to prove how tough they are or make an example of anyone.” Read More .... - Lucas Lowry
"Kimura BJJ is a great place to train"
“Kimura BJJ is a great place to train. I have been training with the team for a few years now—and it is like family. As one of the older guys, I used to wonder if I could still do this in my fifties—but no problem. You go at your own pace and everyone is supportive and respectful. Ever since I was a kid I have surfed, and travelled around the world looking for the best waves. The water is too cold in Massachusetts, so I stay fit rolling on the mats at Kimura.” Read More ... - Dean Williams
