Amazing instructors dedicated to the whole child and we have had nothing but positive experience there!! highly recommend this place LOVE IT Love their attitude, compassion, understanding, willingness to help and most of all the true genuine care that goes into the instruction, starting from Master Cadu, Master Gabi and the rest of the incredible dedicated staff!!
We may try sports and lots of other things but will hopefully never stop bringing our son here, until he decides different. we are hoping for a long term relationship and have already been there 2yrs!!
Respectful, professional and fun. But please, don’t take my word for it. Try it for yourself!

This was the best thing we have done for our son. He was having a hard time in school and was to rough with other kids. After putting him in the jjf he is a kind and respectful kid. They are amazing and positive. We are blessed to have found master cadu and master gabby. Thank you!!!
The Jiu Jitsu Foundation was literally the first martial arts academy I committed to from the various dojos/gyms sprawled out over San Diego County. Cadu and Gaby are very committed to excellence from each of their students and its seen through their consistency and dedication along with passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Carlos “Cadu” Francis is very honed in when it comes to teaching even to the finest detail and his wife Gabi, is the perfect compliment with her style of instruction and her vast fitness knowledge.
San Diego is a great hub for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Every studio seems to have the same elements when it comes to the amenities, competition levels, and training. What sets JJF apart from the rest is the camaraderie, enthusiasm and upbeat family vibe you will feel immediately as soon as you step onto that mat, whether your a day one white belt or a accomplished black belt. OSSS!
The Jiu Jitsu Foundation is an amazing place to train and be around good people.
Academy = clean , organized , comfortable.
Instructors = intelligent , caring , talented , top level
students = skilled , inviting , humble
This Academy is a great place and any city , and or town would be lucky to have them. Good news is we get them all to ourselves right here in La Mesa !!
I literally signed up for a yelp account to support this group , because they deserve it.
Gaby & Cadu are not just great instructors but they are really really good people that i would trust with anything.
My daughter has been attending jiu jitsu foundation for about six months. There has never been a dull moment. When she first started everyone was extremely welcoming and patient. Master Gabi and Master Cadu hold the classes with structure, fun and patience with each and every child. My daughter has gained confidence in herself as well as formed another level of respect towards others. Thank you jiu jitsu foundation for everything you do for our future generations!
The jiu jitsu foundation has amazing instructors that not only teach martial art skills, but life lessons as well. They handle all the students with such patience and care. It's clear they truly care about everyone that walks in.
