Finding your inner “Sheepdog” can be the most rewarding and liberating experience of your life. We want everyday folks and local first responders to have access to the best training in the world. The more Sheepdogs we can train to be prepared to react to violence, the better protected the Flock is and the less likely the wolves will be successful.

Founder and director of our curriculum, Blake Hayes, is a lifetime martial artist who has successfully trained everyone from UFC competitors, military Special Operations, law enforcement at the federal, state, and local level, to fiery grandmothers! He has worked with the best in all fields to develop a completely unique curriculum that is based on the real life experience of the toughest Sheepdogs on Earth.

Our instructors have trained in every effective martial art there is, and hold black belts in several of them…. but no one style is enough to save you in a real life situation. We have put them all together to create our unique Jiu-Jitsu, which we define as “anything that works when what you value most depends on it.”

You will learn how to effectively defend yourself and others, and to have the confidence to walk away from a fight you could win.  Our classes include priceless information about situational awareness, fitness, diet and health to be at your best. Being a Sheepdog is a lifestyle. Its a foundational change, for the better. We will put you on the path. Join us!
