Here's What Students Are Saying About David Howard's Training



Steve Quijada-Rodriguez

It's a great gym and the instructor Dave Howard is by far one of the best grappling coaches in Vegas! He has a unique style of grappling! Very diverse from other Jiu Jitsu instructors. He's a black under a legend of MMA John Lewis with lineage under Nova Uniao. And also a black belt under Harout Terzyan with lineage under Gokor Chivichyan and Judo Gene Labelle. No one else in Vegas holds those blacks belts. So if you have a chance come check him out!

I started training with David Howard when I was 12 years old, nearly 13 years ago. He instilled passion for the sport, respect for the history of Jiu-Jitsu as well as the ability to apply a beat down when necessary. He is knowledgeable in many different martial arts and no matter your reason to study, he will help you reach your goals.

After I left high school wrestling I was looking for an mma or jiu jitsu gym that would better help me adapt what i have learned in wrestling. luckily my wrestling coach introduced me to David Howard who is a grappling expert that has a black belt under John Lewis (John is one of the original mma fighter that ended up training Chuck Liddell, Frank Trigg and many others behind the scene). I've learned so much from them and looking forward to winning more Jiu-Jitsu & grappling tournament thanks to the skills I've developed under David Howard.

I have been training with @David Howard since 2007 and since the first moment he completely changed my jiu jitsu game to the next level. He just don't know good techniques, he is great at teaching and letting you know the smalls details that you need to work on. Personally I believe he is the best jiu jitsu and MMA teacher in Vegas
