"Ronn Shiraki is a naturally gifted Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. His sparring on the mat, Gi or no Gi can only be described as genius. As an instructor he is very professional and meticulous in the teaching of techniques. I promise you that your Jiu-Jitsu game will improve ten fold. If you are just beginning there is no place better to start. This guy is the Bruce Lee of Jiu-Jitsu."
