"I've been teaching judo for over a decade, and have found it to truly be one of my passions. I've have held teaching appointments for at Pedros Judo Center, multiple Brazilian Jiujitsu clubs, and Indiana University. Having competed on both the North American judo and the IBJJF circuits, I bring experience that isn't common among many clinicians in the United States. For BJJ athletes, I understand what parts of the take down game are viable in the unique competition environment they inhabit. For judoka, I can provide easy to implement fixes to common newaza problems. I am one of the only clinicians in the country to hold their black belt under US Olympic coach and 2x Olympic medalist Jimmy Pedro."- Chris Rounds
"I have worked with Chris Round extensively as a coach, colleague and fellow athlete for the past 10 years and I can tell you this.... His command of information, knowledge and his ability to disseminate the information in a fashion that all may understand, apply and pass on is impeccable. I have worked with very few athletes that not only understand the technique but the philosophical approach that undergirds its use.
Since working with Chris I have watched him knowledge in the grappling arts of Judo and Brazilian Jiujitsu flourish and have observed him become not only an international competitor but a top notch seminarist and coach.
If you have the opportunity to attend his seminar, I would highly recommend it. He has spent the bulk of his career around world champions, Olympians and high level international coaches and athletes. And THAT information is something that is not readily available to the general population.
So come out and support Chris, his educational pursuits and learn some cool moves at the same time"

"Chris came to my gym in Bedford and exchanged techniques with me on more than one occasion. He has a great ability to communicate the details necessary to effectively pull off high percentage judo techniques against the posture of BJJ fighters. Chris' competition experience in judo has made his transition BJJ easy and his knowledge super exceeds his BJJ belt rank.
Enjoy... Take notes... Send them to me."
Brazilian Jiujitsu Black Belt under Andre Galvao
"Chris is a good friend of mine and anyone who wants to enhance their stand up game for BJJ, I highly reccomend this workshop. Being a judoka myself, I emphasize to my students the importance of all the aspects of judo in which Chris will be teaching. Dont miss a chance to train with someone who shared the mats on a daily basis with America's best judokas."
Judo Black Belt
BJJ Brown Belt under Jason Fox
"I'm a brown belt in both judo and BJJ. I was fortunate to get a chance to train with Chris during his grad school years. The impact he's made on my judo has been substantial. My strategy in stand-up continues to be almost entirely what he helped me craft, and I attribute my increased success in stand-up to his guidance. You're all very lucky to have an opportunity like this and I wish I could be a part of it. Hope you all enjoy learning from him as much as I did!"
