Garth Taylor:
Garth Taylor may be the most highly decorated non-Brazilian black belt in the world. Garth received his black belt from Master Claudio Franca in 2000 and has medaled at every belt level IN BRAZIL at the World Championships (Mundials). If you are new to the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, that means he competed with ALL the Brazilians at every level of competition. Garth is also a five-time US Open gold medalist in his weight and the open-weight. Probably his most recognizable achievements are Garth’s successes as an Abu Dhabi competitor. Garth has multiple wins over former UFC heavyweight champions Ricco Rodriguez and Josh Barnett as well notable wins over Gabriel “Napao” Gonzaga, Sean Alvarez, Eduardo Telles, and many others.

Marcelo Garcia: ”Garth and Paul are not only good friends of mine but also highly qualified instructors. I highly recommend anyone in the area to stop by their school and learn from two great people. They always take good care of their students. Train Hard!”

Dave Camarillo: “I call Garth the nicest guy in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He is also one of the most experienced instructors around.  Paul is one of the best instructors in the world. He has trained with the best and it shows. I consider him to be one of my teachers.  If your goal is to have fun while learning BJJ look no further than Kaijin MMA!”

Ryan Hall: ”Paul Schreiner and Garth Taylor are two of the best instructors I’ve ever come across.  The unique perspective that Garth and Paul possess can only come from being top-level competitors and training with many of the world’s finest BJJ players, and between the two of them they are literally an encyclopedia of Jiu-Jitsu technique.  I feel fortunate to be their friend and have benefited greatly from having the opportunity to train with and learn from them.  If I lived in Santa Cruz, I’d be a student at Kaijin.”
