What Our Clients Say...

"From someone who has done Jiu Jitsu in years past, Lion Heart Jiu-Jitsu Academy is 5 ⭐️’s! Professor George not only has been in the space for decades, he has a wealth of knowledge as a black belt practitioner.

He is very hands on, showing the actual positions opposed to just shouting commands. He ends his class with prayer requests and giving biblical lessons which correlate to life as well as the positions practiced. If you’re looking to just start out, they have a beginners class as well Even the other students are welcoming and not a shed of “egos” are allowed, which makes coming to class even more exciting."

Braden Rayburn

"Professor George is a wealth of information and an excellent teacher who genuinely cares about each student's understanding and growth.

He makes group classes safe and non-intimidating for women and older kids; all the guys are very respectful and careful. This place is filled with truly kind people who are humble, ambitious learners.."

T Berry

I've trained at Lionheart for over three years. In my opinion, there is not a better Jiu Jitsu instructor than Professor George Wehby.

He explains the concepts of Jiu Jitsu in a way that is easy to retain at any level. I have had the opportunity to visit other academies, and have found the instruction at Lionheart to be superior. Give Lionheart a try and you will not be disappointed!
