Soca BJJ San Diego Testimonials

By far the best martial arts school for adults and kids in San Diego. Friendly, professional, clean, and tons of class times to fit everyone’s schedule. If you’re looking to learn self defense, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is it! Professor Bruno is one of the best and you’ll feel like family right away. Plus I’ve lost 30 lbs since joining, woohoo!

I regret not finding Soca BJJ several years ago. Bruno and Lika create a welcoming environment with a great sense of community. I’ve found the BJJ instruction top-notch, and the friends I’ve made and the community helps keep me motivated to continue to train. I highly recommend Soca to anyone looking to learn self-defense, get in shape, or to just make new friends.

We love Soca Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Rancho Bernardo. All 3 of my kids have joined now, including my husband. From my 11-year-old to my toddler, they all love it. Professor Bruno is so great with the children. I get to watch all the classes now, and I can say Professor Bruno and Lika (his wife and partner) have true love for all the kids.
