Our instructors are Mr. Gonzalo Garcia and Ms. Carly Woolman.
Coach Gonzalo was born and raised in Yakima, WA. He is a certified BJJ instructor whose passion is to see students thrive on the mats and in life. Coach Gonzalo wrestled in high school and fought on the regional MMA circuit before focusing his talents on BJJ training. In addition to teaching both our BJJ classes, Coach Gonzalo is currently pursuing his undergraduate degree at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA.
Coach Carly is also a Yakima native and teaches both our BJJ classes. She’s been training BJJ for about four years and especially values the practical self-defense dimensions of jiu-jitsu. Away from the mats, Coach Carly loves literature and enjoys sharing this love with her West Valley ninth-grade students.
