Scott Goddard is a second degree black belt under Rigan Machado and he is my teacher. He runs a challenging class, and he truly cares about his students-- both the professional fighters and the recreational BJJ players alike. He is a stand-up individual, and I'm very fortunate to have him as my instructor. His credentials are below: Scott Goddard holds a black sash in Wing-Chun, a black belt in Judo and is a second degree black belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu. Scott began studying martial arts at the age of five in his former home country of England. There he trained in various martial arts including Wing-Chun, Thai Boxing, Boxing and Judo. Scott participated in the first ever Vale Tudo competition held in England and won his division. He also fought at a national level and won many Judo tournaments. At the age of 26, Scott was introduced to Brazilian Jui-Jitsu through a seminar held in England by John Machado. Three months later, Scott was training in Los Angeles, CA under Rigan Machado. Scott achieved his black belt in a record three and a half years and was the first person from England to ever receive his black belt in Brazilian jui jitsu. Scott has had the honor of training with some of the best Jiu-jitsu and MMA fighters out there including the legendary Rigan Machado, John Machado and Roger Machado, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Rico Rodriguez, UFC fighter Frank Trigg and Shooto Champion Eric Paulson.

His character and bjj style has great mental and physical toughness. He doesn't have much sympathy, because our opponents wont.

Scott is one of the Best Martial Artist, I have trained with in my 16 years of training. Scotts' practical, technical, challenging and experienced approach is what makes Scott Goddard so great. I highly recommend Training with Scott and so have legendary Jiu jitsu practioners such as Chris Haueter. What I enjoy the most about training with Scott Goddard is he blends all of the concepts of the different styles of martial arts he has trained into the jiu jitsu training alot like other great martial artists like Dan Inosanto. Check him out at Wrecking Ball Facility in Volo, IL. (Thanks for the great training Coach)

Scott is a great jiu jitsu coach and has shown me many things not only in jiu jitsu but also being mentally and physically tough. Scott runs a tough, strict, and well structured class along with amazing technique he teaches. Scott has helped me in my jiu jitsu technique so much and I do know if I could of made all the progress I have in jiu jitsu without him.

No matter how much my technique grows, sensei still makes me feel like I am a white belt all over again when we roll. He has great teaching skills and is a high character individual.

Scott strikes an excellent balance of toughness and technique. His classes and lessons are challenging for all levels - it is quite unique to find his level of talent teaching in the midwest.
