About Guardian Jiu-Jitsu
Guardian Jiu-Jitsu was founded by Kevin Irwin and Andy Hagans in 2019.
Our mission is simple: to build the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy in the state of Michigan, while serving our community of the greater Holland area.
Guardian Jiu-Jitsu serves adult students of all ages and abilities (both men and women), as well as children ages 6 and up.
How Is Guardian Jiu-Jitsu Different?
As a martial artist, you have many choices when it comes to selecting a gym at which to train. Here's why you should consider Guardian:
First -- at Guardian Jiu-Jitsu, we believe that training martial arts can help students succeed not only in the martial arts, but also “off the mat” in others areas of life.
Therefore, maintaining a safe and positive training environment is our top priority. This helps bring out the best in our coaches, students and parent community.
Plus, the positive team atmosphere helps make your training more FUN!
Second -- we are the ONLY gym in the greater Holland area offering our unique mix of programs: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for kids and adults, kickboxing, and women's martial arts.
Our experienced coaching team, led by Kevin Irwin, collectively has 60+ years of BJJ & kickboxing experience. Our Jiu-Jitsu program is affiliated under Misho Ceko from Chicago MMA.
You can be confident that each class you attend will be led by a passionate, experienced, and friendly coach.
Third -- in June 2019, we opened our "dream facility", outfitted with premium 2" Zebra-brand MMA mats, and enough space to accommodate all of our recent growth.
Our 3,700 square foot facility is conveniently located in Holland Town Center, behind Nelis' Dutch Village. You'll enjoy plenty of easy parking and amenities, plus training on premium mats which are very forgiving for grapplers!
