Our three core principles are Truth, Aliveness and Adaptability.

  • Truth - "What does and doesn't work".
  • Aliveness - "Training against a fully resisting opponent".
  • Adaptability - "Able to adjust oneself readily to different conditions".

We base our curriculum on core delivery systems of stand up, clinch and ground. Our most common Get Real member is your everyday person who works full-time, has a family, goes to school and is looking for fun, fitness and community. Get Real is for everybody!

Tom, I just want to thank you again for the outstanding training and hospitality you and all your coaches and students showed us at Get Real. From the moment I walked through the door I felt like I had walked into the home of a friend. Your wonderful spirit showed from the first time you greeted us, thanking us for coming. However, it is us, the students who should be forever grateful to you for sharing your extensive knowledge and working so hard to put it into a format that can be easily understood.
