Our ethos is that through pushing ourselves we will sharpen our skills and sharpen our partner's skills.
At ISI we leave egos at the door.
Our competition team is always growing and looking to have a big year in 2019.
For those unsure about competing, Coach Omar arranges friendly informal competitions with other BJJ schools throughout the year to see if the competitive itch lies within.
