Meet Your Instructor

Brock Garlick

I believe being a great coach starts with patience, and understanding that everyone learns at a different pace. A technical approach is the core of my instruction. When students ask questions, I listen, and explain techniques in a way they can understand.

Our Students Like Us

We believe that the practice of Jiu Jitsu is seen as a means to individual development and personal growth. Strength, self-awareness, confidence, respect, discipline and responsibility are common core values taught within our adult and kid’s programs.

positive review Everything about it, top to bottom. A school that has blossomed in the last year in many ways. Clean facilities, huge mat space, 2 ages of kids’ classes, large inventory of merchandise on site, sponsorships with local vendors, drop ins from UFC fighters, and most importantly a large group of older Moms and Dads that routinely find time to set the example for their children by grinding with savages after a long day at the office.

positive review City of Palms is all around amazing.

This gym not only provides valuable training, but everyone at the gym (including students) are so welcoming to new people that join. They constantly support one another. The culture of the school is strong and healthy.

The gym is always clean, professor Brock is kind and incredibly respectful towards his students and the parents. Front desk ladies always welcome people with a smile.

They support local cops (adopt a cop program) helping them prepare for any issues they may encounter in the streets while they’re protecting citizens.

They have amazing merchandise! Flow N Roll gear is great quality, and affordable.

My whole family trains here, including myself and I honestly wouldn’t want to ever train anywhere else in the area.

positive review I have been to a few other BJJ places in South West Florida, but I love the atmosphere and interaction with the community that City of Palms has. The classes are about teaching and learning, not a free for all fight. Watching the kids classes and seeing them grow, along with the adults is amazing.

Birthday throws for our OG kids. These two are our day 1’s. They’ve been training with us since they were 5, they just turned 9! They also happen to be Coach Brock’s nephews. 🎂

Bryce and Karson wanted to spend their birthday like they do everyday, at the academy training with their friends! 🥳

Even the power outage couldn’t stop these throws! 🤼

When we decided to start investing in local law enforcement we had no idea the relationship that would be forged. 🚔

Professor @bjjbrock has a background in law enforcement so it’s always been a goal to design a program where officers could come train to continually improve their ability to protect our city. 🏙️ 
Thank you @fmpd239 for trusting us with your new officers and seasoned officers alike. 🙏

We’re in a mood…a proud mood 🎉

Today, we had three of our FMPD officers compete at @heroes_grappling_tournament and they did great! We’re so grateful that our local law enforcement who go above and beyond to become better in their field! 🚓

Teaching, competing, studying…our coaches here at City of Palms are committed to leading by example. Not only do they all continuously study, they all coach and compete regularly. 💪

We believe in leading from the front. We can’t take a student to a place we, ourselves don’t go. 💭
