There are hundreds of places to train in the Valley, but there is only one Like Minded…


The members of Like Minded know we have a special thing going at our club. It’s hard to describe, but there is a feeling you get when you walk in the door, that lets you know this isn’t just any gym. If you are looking for a home to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and be welcomed as part of a team that sometimes feels more like a family, come check us out.

What sets Like Minded apart?

  • High Quality Instruction-Our lead instructor is Professor Darrell Taylor, a first degree blackbelt in BJJ who has been training Jiu-Jitsu since 1998. Learning from an experienced teacher and competitor at the blackbelt level is the best way establish your foundations for your progression.
  • High Quality People-Our team attracts good people, people that share our love for training, that support each other in their progress, and that are mindful of the safety and well-being of their training partners. We do not tolerate bullies or big egos and the only person you have to be better than is yourself. This is why we call our club ‘Like-Minded’.
  • High Value-Our rates are very competitive with other training systems and offer more mat time per dollar than most. We have a variety of financial arrangements to suit your needs.
