No Excuse Not To

Jiu-Jitsu isn’t just about learning to defend yourself.  It’s about fitness, it’s about a healthy lifestyle, it’s about developing friendship, it’s about being part of a global family, it’s about being part of a team, it’s about changing your life, it’s about who you are and who you want to be.

3G Women Only Open Mat/Training Session

Sheri Hockman invites all 3rd Generation Jiu-Jitsu Team female members to come out to our first women only training event on Sunday, July 15, 2012 from 10am to 12pm.  This is a free event.  So come on out, meet, train and learn from your teammates.


Our 2nd Annual Team 3G All Day Turkey Roll


Are you sick of the rampaging masses at the malls on Black Friday? Are you sick of the idea of spending more “quality time” with the family? Does it feel like you put on 20 pounds overnight because of gluttonous eating? Then come on down for the 2nd Annual ALL DAY AFTER TURKEY DAY ROLL!!!


By ALL DAY, we mean ALL DAY. Come in when you want, leave when you want. You can even come in, roll, leave, and come back again later. Those of you brave (or crazy) enough can stay ALL DAY. You can grab meals at the nearby eateries, recover, and train some more. That’s what a few of us plan on doing. Why? Because we have no lives…Errr…I mean, because we LOVE Jiu-Jitsu. Yeah, that’s it.


So, come on down and roll. Roll until your heart’s content or it actually gives out. Whichever one comes first. Be there or be square. Just like the pegs that some of you keep trying to put into the round holes.


Date:  Friday, November 25, 2011 from 10:30am to 9:00pm


We will also be holding a class that day lead by Rosendo Diaz from 12pm to 1pm.  Catch you there!

Some Testimonials About our Academy

It’s always great to get feedback from those that train with us.  Read on…



Rosendo Diaz is without a doubt one of the most technical & knowledgeable instructors out there. I’ve been very fortunate to learn from someone of such skill and character. He’s the man.
-Dan Y. – North Wales, PA


I highly recommend that anyone looking for true brazilian jiu jitsu in the greater philadelphia area, look no further than Rosendo Diaz.
Joe K · Blandon, Pennsylvania


Rosendo Diaz is a top notch friend and mentor to all he comes into contact with. He is a great friend to our gym in Houston and has been very encouraging to me through my travels. If you ever get the chance to interact with him on a student/ teacher or business partner level, it will no doubt be a very enriching experience. Happy training!
-Missy E. – Houston, TX


I would definitely recommend Rosendo as a martial arts instructor. The advantages of learning with Rosendo is his willingness to train as intense or as laid back as you like. When you have trouble executing or perfecting a technique, Rosendo will give you the individual attention to adapt your skills and succeed. I was a total beginner to martial arts training when I started at Rosendo’s Academy and I feel confident in saying he is a superb teacher for both beginners as well as advanced students.
Jim R. – Telford, PA


I have trained in many martial arts in my time and have worked with many instructors. Rosendo Diaz is one of the best I have ever worked with. He takes time to explain as he teaches while making the techniques work for everyone in the class. His school has a family atmosphere and is welcoming to all.
Mike O. – Hatfield, PA


Rosendo Diaz has improved my jujitsu game immensely, as one might expect. Perhaps less assumed is the fact that Rosendo’s tutelage has also improved my wit. As often as I am forced to defend technique after technique on the mat, I am constantly engaged in retorting to Rosendo’s legendary verbal jabs and witty remarks. In all seriousness, Rosendo’s talent as an instructor is matched by his good will, sense of humor, and dedication to teaching. Training under Rosendo has been a great experience.
Anthony L. – Doylestown, PA


Highly skilled. He is always willing to help and answer any questions at all & he is so hilarious! well he thinks so, naw just kiddin and that is the kind of family atmosphere that he provides!
Chan W. – Harrisburg, PA


Rosendo is a master of his art and it shows. The atmosphere of his classes are lighthearted yet conducive to learning. Rosendo is just as quick to make you laugh as to truly explain the finer points of any given technique. I am so glad I chose his school.
