****Quotes about Sean Flanery

“Houston Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has done a tremendous amount of good for me and my son. Words cannot express the depth of gratitude that we have for Mr. Sean. HBJJ’s world class system of true combat Jiu Jitsu is perhaps the most thoroughly developed and articulated fighting curriculum in existence. But it's way more than that too. It's an Academy in the truest essence of the word - a place of higher learning that exemplifies a return of dignity, honor, virtue, and true integrity to the fighting arts.” -Dallas Morris

“A good portion of who my son is now, is due to Houston Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I couldn't be more pleased with the mentoring and leadership in their 4Building men program.” -Kristen B.

“His work is an ode to those few crucial characters we meet in the course of our lives who’s deep effect on us defines who we are and what we will become.” -Renzo Gracie
