I started training with Professor Chris Haueter around 2005-2006 time period.

Prof. Haueter has coached and Mentored me into the Jiu Jitsu the practitioner that I am today.,

It was great to see and train with the talent that he is able to gather into his world famous ‘The Garage, Combat Base’ training center.

As always, rolling with Prof. Haueter, is always something to remember. His Grips, pressure, and positional game is incredible and his unique style of BJJ is always something to learn from.

I am approaching my 19th year of Jiu Jitsu and I still learn every time I roll with Professor Haueter. Awesome Jiu Jitsu.

It was a great group of guys and gals that worked hard and put in some blood, sweat and tears into developing hard core BJJ . Every roll was awesome to watch. Great Jiu Jitsu camaraderie.

Professor Chris Haueter invites Jiu Jitsu Practitioners from all over, with no politics, just train and get better. You never know who is going to show up on any particular day. Prof, Haueter has had the likes of Conor McGregor, The Gracies, multiple times World Champions, etc show up randomly to get some training in.
