  • What People Are Saying...


    "I highly recommend Brazilian Martial Arts, Agoge Martial Arts, in Papillion. My two teenage girls are learning Jiu Jitsu under the guidance of Sensei Rob Luhrs. He holds a 2nd degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, a Brown Belt in Kajukembo, and a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His patience, kindness, and guidance with the kids is jaw dropping. He has a team of highly skilled staff there with a smaller class ratio to ensure the students are learning each skill that is targeted. Mostly importantly, my girls are building their self-confidence, eager to participate, and motivated by instruction. I can’t wait to see the outcome over time."

    What People Are Saying...

    "Sensei Rob is a great instructor and my kids love the class. There's an emphasis not only on learning technique, but also respect, discipline, and building confidence. No tough guy or "Cobra Kai" vibes here."
