Here’s a video from one of our students, Mark Salamango, who decided to document his Jiu-Jitsu journey at Kaizen from his first day of training. We didn’t ask him to make this video. This is his second video where he talks about his first week.
Here are some testimonials from students:
Kaizen Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a phenomenal gym! Whether you are wanting to begin training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or have been training for years, Kaizen BJJ is a premiere school. The instructors are not only experts but have the ability to teach and develop students! What I have come to like most about Kaizen BJJ is that I can train hard, develop my skills in BJJ, learn self-defense, and get in shape. And I can do all of this alongside men and women who don’t simply value but demonstrate humility and respect for each other. I plan to train at Kaizen BJJ as long as possible…Hope to see you on the mat!

I first started training with Professor Fiorenzi in 2008 after being recommended by other Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners around my grappling level. I was very impressed with not only his knowledge and skill as an instructor, but also in him as a person. I specifically enjoyed the “leave your ego at the door” mentality that he promoted at his school, so much that I follow this to date at my own academy. If you’re looking for a good school to train at, or are just in the area visiting, I recommend stopping by and checking Kaizen BJJ out!

I’ve been with Kaizen BJJ for over 6 years now, and throughout the years the school keeps getting better and better. The staff at Kaizen is excellent, the instructors are extremely knowledgeable, and constantly strive to expand that knowledge. The students there are all very friendly, and since Ryan (the owner) has a “leave your ego at the door” policy, very rarely do you see injuries caused by “tough guy syndrome.” Kaizen BJJ just relocated to a nicer building on 5 mile and Haggerty, the new building is outstanding, there is lots of mat space, and the building as well as the mats are kept very clean. Kaizen BJJ is open to people of all ages, and skill level, and offers a variety of classes daily, in wrestling, BJJ, MMA, boxing, kick boxing, muay thai and self defense, for women, children, teenagers, and men. Whether you just want to get in shape, aspire to be a MMA fighter, want to compete in BJJ tournaments, want to learn self defense, or just want to impress your friends with a flying armbar, Kaizen BJJ is the place for you. I give Kaizen BJJ an A++

I have trained under Prof.Fiorenzi for almost ten years and he is one of the most humble and knowledgeable Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructors I have ever had the pleasure of training with. I have made many friends and had more opportunities to train with other great people while training with Ryan at Kaizen Jiu Jitsu.

I’ve known Professor Fiorenzi for over fifteen years. When I began Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu he had a BJJ school on the west side of town. Although I lived on the east side of town, I would make that long drive to attend his school to receive top notch instruction and training from him via private and group. During that time there weren’t many schools in Michigan to train at, but by far his school was definitely the school to attend for west siders, Fifteen years later that fact doesn’t change. I’ve watched him grow rapidly has an instructor and practitioner, and I’m extremely proud to have received my brown belt in BJJ from Professor Fiorenzi. Now that I’m a BJJ Machado Black belt, I can honestly say that Professor Fiorenzi is one of the best instructors Michigan has to offer, and I am humble enough to say as a BJJ black belt, I still learn from him to this day!

It’s going to be hard for me to express in words how Kaizen Jiu Jitsu has changed my life, but, here I go…My family and I have been training at Kaizen close to 3 years. I started my kids at ages 3 and 4. I would start training a little while later. I was out of shape and 30 pounds overweight. I was having a difficult time keeping up. Sensei Ryan Fiorenzi really took the time to help me and my family to flourish. Once I really was able to train, I was seeing some crazy results. The 30 pounds, gone…cardio, 1000% improvement, success on the mat, I’m loving it. I’m 5ft 5 and in my 40’s, and I shouldn’t be doing what I’m doing. Well, that was my old way of thinking. Anything is possible, now. I was “rolling” (sparring on the mat) with someone over 300 pounds, today, and I was never in danger! Learning self defense, getting in great shape, and making the impossible, possible. Also, I have made some real great friendships that have impacted my life and inspired my mindset for success. Thank you Kaizen for giving me the skills to have success on the mat and in life. Signing up to train at Kaizen was one of the best decisions of my life.
