"I am a Law Enforcement Officer and I've been training under Gene Simco since February 2007. I received my blue belt in August 2008 and decided to test my skills in the PAN AMERICAN JIU-JITSU NO-GI CHAMPIONSHIP on October 4th 2008 in NYC and came in first place. Gene's techniques and his simple ways of teaching has made me a Gold Medalist. The skills that I have learned has prepared me to defeat my opponents on the mat and in the streets." - Robin Duran, Pan American BJJ Champion

"Gene Simco is the epitome of a true martial artist and great teacher, unlike most other instructors out there who care more about listing their competition record than what they can do for their students, then ask you to leave your ego at the door." - Daniel Butler
"I recently had the pleasure of having Gene Simco teach a BJJ class to a group of Army officers and United States Military Academy cadets. I am currently in my sixth year as a practitioner of BJJ. I have served as a combatives instructor at the Infantry School at Fort Benning, Georgia and currently I am teaching combatives at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Gene organized a quick drill to quickly access the level of proficiency of each fighter in the room, and then began to teach. Gene has the unique ability to simplify the simple and get you focused on the importance of the basics. He personally worked with every fighter in the room, and at the end of two hours every student had improved their ground fighting game. For the next three days, we drilled the techniques taught by Gene, and our ability to pass the guard has improved drastically. Many folks that I have trained with always want the high end "flying arm-bar" type of instruction. Gene quickly showed us where we were sloppy with our basics. Within seconds of listening to Gene, watching him teach and move on the ground, you realize that he is world class and worth listening to. Gene has a professional but personable style and is able to speak and teach at the appropriate level to each student. I would recommend learning from Gene personally or through the use of his books and videos to anyone wanting to improve their military/police combatives, sport BJJ, MMA, or self defense skills. – MAJ Chuck Pudil, Combatives Instructor - United States Military Academy

I recently had the opportunity to train with Gene Simco while I was in New York visiting. As a beginner in the art, Gene dramatically improved my skills with his vast knowledge and easy to understand teaching style. Gene was sensitive to my job as a Police Officer and incorporated skills that would help me on the street. Gene is a great teacher and an asset to all students under his instruction. Thanks. – Officer Chris Irsa, SWAT Team, Portage Police, Indiana
