The Birth of Bluestarr Grappling

Bluestarr Grappling started out as just a fun venture with a few guys who just trained together and loved the art. Our Head Coach, Sadiq Walt Daniels, started the group because he wanted to hang out, teach and train his friends so they would be safe on the streets. Before he realized, it grew into a labor of love that has grown to who we are now; helping our community growing strong, mentally disciplined youths and adults.  We are unlike any other academy you are going to experience. On and off the mats, incorporated into our curriculum we wrap in discipline of mind and body, instill confidence and empower you to be successful and confident individually and in a team.

Within these blue walls, we foster a very disciplined, but positive and successful atmosphere built to prepare the student for all activities and passions in life. 


Our upper belts are often used to assist as Junior Instructors along with our main instructor and coaches and have the capability to​ step in to show technique or help teach our Lil Starrs.
