Josh Simon is a great teacher that used to teach at my gym. Everyone used to love his classes and it was a real honor for us to have him at our academy. We are really proud of what he has accomplished. - Igor Araujo, UFC Fighter, 4th Degree Black Belt and Head Instructor Gracie Barra Switzerland
Few people have the Jiu-Jitsu pedigree of Josh Simon. He was already a skilled Jiu-Jitsu fighter when I first started Jiu-Jitsu in 1996. Josh is one of those OG’s that was on the ground floor at a time when Jiu-Jitsu was just starting to revolutionize the martial arts world in the U.S. Josh’s understanding of the game is well rounded and based on years of experience and practice. He’s a great friend and has been a valued training partner to me for many years. - Noah Spear, Masters World Champion, 4th Degree Black Belt and Head Instructor of Spear Jiu-Jitsu
I have had the pleasure of training under Professor Josh Simon since 2016. He's a great instructor and mentor on and off the mats! Professor Simon is very proficient and his technical understanding of Jiu-Jitsu is top notch. His instruction can reach students of all levels. I always take something away from his classes. I strongly recommend training with Professor Simon. - Gary Hensley, Black Belt and Instructor at the National Veterans Memorial Museum
Professor Josh's class is awesome. As an older grappler with a few miles on my body, I sometimes find it a bit challenging to perform certain techniques. Josh always tries to show variations of a technique so that everyone will be able to perform it. He is an amazing instructor. He is sort of like a "mad scientist" at BJJ. I highly recommend his class to anyone. No matter what skill level, he will elevate your game! - Tom Ferroni
Josh is a mad genius. He always helps me get better and his classes have been my favorite since the beginning - Casey Kowalewsky
I always enjoy Josh's class. I've been training with Josh for a couple of years now and my Jiu-Jitsu gets better each time. Josh will help you create a solid foundation for self-defense, but also make you a strong competitor. He makes class safe and fun. He wants to make sure you understand not just the "how", but the "why" behind each technique. He makes sure to take time out for you if you have any questions. Very smart, witty and great professor to learn from! Oss! - Doug Reisinger
Josh Simon is simply a masterful instructor. I am a high school teacher who has been taking classes with him since 2016 and I am continually impressed by his ability to teach a technique in such a way that all students, from beginner to advanced, will come away with something that they can immediately integrate into their own arsenal. He is like the hilariously sarcastic "Mr. Miyagi" of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (but without the sanding floors, painting fences and washing cars) - Michael Myers
I have trained with Josh Simon for the last several years and have been thoroughly impressed by both his grasp of traditional BJJ as well as its application during current times. His base of knowledge and experience is deep and his method of instruction is effective and very student-centric. I strongly recommend his classes to anyone interested in BJJ and self-defense. - Jon Baer
Josh has been an acquaintance of mine for the last few years. After a concerning altercation with a stranger, I decided to discuss with him and understand more about what Jiu-Jitsu was and if it could help me. Ultimately, I decided to invest my time in training with the goal of obtaining the skills to protect myself. I have had zero experience with personal defense classes. Josh has been very supportive and thorough with his explanations in class. I am regaining my confidence and being pushed in a positive way outside of my comfort zone. - Heather France
