Our History:

Mike Garwood opened Carlson Gracie Green Valley in February of 2021. He has taught BJJ classes for over seven years, including a previous role at the Carlson Gracie Henderson location. With his entrepreneurial spirit, opening a Jiu Jitsu academy was always the end goal. During Mike’s training, his professor requested that he and his wife open a Carlson Gracie location in Green Valley, it was a no brainer. In a short time, the academy has already grown from zero to 105 students and counting. While Mike continues to live out his dream he remains most proud of the success of his students.
