When I left my previous BJJ school I tried a couple of schools in the Scranton area that were excellent but just too... far. Lucky American Killer Bee's is just across the street from my former school. I love this place! Matt and his wife are awesome. Professor Perez is amazing. I'm doing moves that I never thought I'd be able to do at the age of 53. He rolls with you every chance he gets. Everyone there is friendly. American Killer Bee's is everything I wanted in a BJJ, MMA, school. It's bigger than my previous school. I get to continue my Muay Thai and Boxing training which my previous school doesn't have. I'm not pressured or forced to buy Gi's or equipment. Most of all it's a really family oriented school.read more
