Paulo Polimeno and Ryann Creary
Love the gym. If you’re looking for a martial arts academy that is family orientated and has classes for all ages then you should go to flow. Paulo and Ryan are amazing BJJ instructors and have a real heart to see people grow and succeed not just in martial arts but in life as well. As a parent I love sending my sons to flow to learn BJJ and as an adult my wife and I love learning a new martial art together that is great for your fitness and handling the stresses of life
I particularly enjoy my time on the mats at Flow Martial Arts. It goes without saying that Paulo and Ryann are strong technicians in BJJ, but their charisma and strong leadership have created a fun and safe environment to learn the art of BJJ. Since joining I have learned a lot about the art/myself and have made several solid friendships in the process.
Paulo grew up in Brazil and was awarded his Black Belt in 2008. With close to 20 years of experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, teaching Jiu-Jitsu, and competing in Jiu-Jitsu, Paulo has a wealth of knowledge to pass onto his students. Paulo is still active in the competitive circuit and a current competitor on the professional Jiu-Jitsu card of BOA Super 8. Paulo also has a BA in Physical Education and is a certified personal trainer.Read more
