Professor Joel is awesome. His Jiu Jitsu is very technical and he teaches at all levels. From the most basic beginner to the most advanced Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. If you are thinking about training Jiu-Jitsu for the first time or looking to move to this Academy, you won’t be disappointed.

The only thing that outshines Professor Joel’s skills as an Instructor is who he is as a person. He is an amazing guy that wants nothing but the best for his students. If you are looking for an Academy that has amazing BJJ and Muay Thai, look no further. I know as soon as you meet him you will know exactly what I am talking about. Enjoy. Embrace.

As one of his oldest students, I can tell you that Professor Joel Garcia really cares about his students, his academy, and mostly his quality of instruction. His attention to detail when explaining a technique and the repetitions of drilling the technique is what makes Professor Joel a great instructor. If you are looking for a great place to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Embrace Martial Arts is it.

Great school. Immediately welcomed by everyone on day one. By day two had new friends that felt like family. Professor Joel Garcia sets the tone of the whole school. He is a really nice guy that wants to help you learn. Not just BJJ, but how the lessons learned on the mat can be applied to everyday life. His calm demeanor and respectful attitude is prevalent throughout the school in that it is emulated by everyone. Tremendous learning environment overall. 100% recommended.

What an amazing Academy and even more amazing Professor. Joel Garcia is the type of instructor that will not just make you better at Jiu Jitsu, but his ability to be a role model will make you better just being around him.

Had a chance to train at Embrace last week and felt very welcomed by professor Joel and his students. If you are in the Wake Forest area and are looking to train this is the place.

Very very clean and comfortable place to learn BJJ from very experienced practitioners ... immediately felt at home and immediately signed up, I can’t wait to jump back on the mats and get my butt kicked with a smile on my face.

Professor Garcia is a one of a kind!! His instruction is sound and effective!! He can teach 4-year-olds to 48-year-olds..like myself. His instruction has changed my game and I've been a competitive black belt since 2009!! If you live in Wake Forest, you owe it to yourself to visit him at his new academy!!
