Instructors

Our experienced coaching team, led by Kevin Irwin, collectively has 50+ years of BJJ experience. Our academy is also affiliated under Misho Ceko, a Chicago-based Ralph Gracie black belt who has been training for 20+ years. The BJJ curriculum we teach at Guardian Jiu-Jitsu includes both self-defense as well as competition Jiu-Jitsu, and everything in between. Our kickboxing coaches are similarly experienced, and offer a fun, challenging kickboxing curriculum.
