The Philly Roll: Open mat for an Open mind

Since founding Balance Studios in 2002, the Migliarese Brothers, Ricardo and Phil, have welcomed all Jiu-Jitsu practitioners, regardless of affiliation, to train at Balance.  

Now, after 15 years of sharing their school's facilities with others, the Migliarese Brothers want to open up the Team Balance Global Headquarters in Fishtown for a unique opportunity for Jiu-Jitsu enthusiasts of all types to meet up, train, and eat in a relaxed, casual, and family-friendly atmosphere.  

Register today; all you need to bring is the right attitude and a white gi.
