“My goal is to use jiu-jitsu as a vehicle for group improvement. By creating a positive team atmosphere, we can challenge one another to be better people. I believe that group accountability raises all boats. In short, I have come to love jiu-jitsu over the last decade and I think if you give it a try you will too. See you on the mats!”

Coach Lambert started as a parent, watching his son Angel on his Jiu Jitsu journey from our bench for a couple of years before putting himself on the mats as well.
He was looking to incorporate regular exercise into his life at the time (doctors orders) and since then he’s fond of saying that Jit Jitsu, “…looked like a whole lot more fun than jogging..”.
It wasn’t long before he was hooked.
It’s now become a family affair, as he, Angel and Izzy have become regulars at our Kids and Adults classes.
He’ll be the first to tell you that Fulcrum is Home, and it’s Members are Family.
