John is an incredibly supportive coach and role model, especially for those just starting out! Me and jiu jitsu was not love at first sight, and I don’t think I would have developed a love for BJJ had it not been for John’s patience, kindness and excellent instruction!

Learning BJJ with John Kutz is amazing. Such a friendly and professional instructor. He makes sure you get the movements right and encourages you throughout the whole class. This was my first time doing jiu-jitsu and he made it a great experience for me! Totally recommend!

More than an excellent school and instruction, the more you train, the more you end up loving jiu jitsu. Has turned into a family…more than a human can ask for.

Been learning so much at West coast Bjj. Great opportunity to learn about the art of grappling. Good sized classes, really good atmosphere and a Great instructor !!

Arif

John was my first BJJ coach and I don’t think anything speaks to his kind, supportive teaching style more than me being desperate to continue the sport once I returned to Toronto. He always made sure I understood everything being taught and was so reassuring during practice, it definitely left a lasting impact!
