I’m blessed to have met Ricky when he was at Iowa state. His teaching methods and style of BJJ are the best in the world for MMA, competitive grappling, or just self defense. I can’t thank him enough for the knowledge he has passed on! I can’t imagine where my BJJ game would be today if I wouldn’t have met him!

Ricky Lundell has been my BJJ (Gracie Jiu-Jitsu) instructor for the past 6 years. As I’ve progressed I have seen his skills improve far beyond what they were as a 19 year old Pedro Sauer black belt. Greats like Cael Sanderson and Gene Mills have also contributed to his skills and ability to coach. Think of that… the best tutoring and being friends with the best. There is a reason the “rich get richer” and the “best get better.” Interestingly his coaching skills have always been outstanding. As long as I have known him he has always… 1. Known and been able to breakdown and carefully explain each jiu-jitsu movement and the reasons for those movements in great detail. 2. Known which techniques will work most efficiently to put a player in the best position, and 3. Known which techniques only look good but should never be used because when done poorly or at the wrong time they put a player in a bad position. And frankly, those three points only scratch the surface of his knowledge. What he can do and teach are astonishing. I heard him say once that he spent more time forgetting the techniques that put him in a bad position or had a low probability of working than he did learning the techniques that worked and kept him in a dominant position. He reminds me of Bruce Lee’s comment of “hack away at the non-essentials.” I don’t have the time or ability to spend on those areas so having Ricky be able to do so is worth any price of tuition. Ricky’s insight is rare in a world where half the coaches struggle with English and their complete technique explanation is, “Do like this.” From what I have personally observed he has spent almost every hour of every day for the past 10 years (at least he has for the over five years I have known him) studying not only BJJ but other grappling styles so he could understand there strengths, weaknesses, and how he could defeat them. I still marvel at that. Who in the world would close a successful business and move to Ames to train with the USA’s greatest wrestler just to get better and better? Only Ricky Lundell. Do you know what you call someone who goes to university and spends 10 years studying something every minute of every day until they become an absolute expert? I believe you call them “Doctor.” That is what Ricky Lundell is in the grappling world… not only in his skills but also in his teaching. People look at Ricky and think, “He is very young.” His youth is a great asset to us players in our 30s and 40s because he has the energy and talent to master techniques and then prove them in hard core live matches with great players on the UFC, and FILA level. He knows from experience what works and what does not. If you doubt that just spend a couple of hours with him and you will never look at your current instructor the same. When Ricky comes back to town from teaching Frank, Roy, and the other UFC greats he goes back to teaching us the same techniques he teaches the best in the world. His classes in Utah are identical to those he teaches the big named people. What he teaches reminds me of an old slang term often recited by Texans, “Listen, this ain’t theory yawl.” And believe me… it ain’t.

Ricky is a gifted instructor. He doesn’t just teach you the techniques, he teaches you how to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the moves in order to choose the best technique for any situation you find yourself. He has a deep love and respect for BJJ which Is passed on to his students and everyone he comes in contact.

Ricky is a God when it comes to grappling and jujitsu!! I started less than 11 months ago with no wrestling and very little bjj experience. He’s taught me everything I know and I’ve won first place in all my divisions because of his instruction. I’ve never met a nicer and more humble instructor and consider him a great friend.

All my kids go to university of grappling in Lindon Utah. My kids look forward to each Tuesday and Thursday night classes. I have noticed increased self confidence since they began training with Ricky Lundell. They are taught self respect and learn to pay attention. We are extremely happy with University Of Grappling and will continue to train there!!

Ricky is an amazing teacher and his technique is brilliant. I have worked with a number of talented coaches and Ricky is hands down the best. He runs a clean, well behaved room where competition is welcomed, but stomping around the mat after getting subbed is not. No Brazilian temper tantrums in his room.

If you want to be a versatile fighter who can handle the toughest grappling competitions and step into the MMA ring, Ricky Lundell is your man. He coaches world-class wrestlers, jiu-jitsu competitors, and MMA fighters. His dominant style takes you from your back to the top against even the largest competitors. In addition to skill, he’s also a genuine person. I’m lucky to get to spend so much time learning from him.

I have been blessed to have Ricky as a coach and teammate at a couple Pancrase submission grappling tourneys. Still relatively green, he coached me to a 4th place medal and against TUF alum Noah Thomas, verbally walked me thru a peruvian knecktie escape…Ricky is personable, humble, and a great all around person – I won’t even touch on how good he is n the mat, LOL…the highlight of my training has been and still is the 30 minute straight randori i had with him…amazing!!!

Ricky sets the bar high for all Jiu-Jitsu players as well as Wrestling and MMA as a trainer and a Jiu-Jitsu Submission competitor. His two world titles in submission wrestling and many Jiu-jitsu victorys speak for them selves being the youngest black belt in the United States under Pedro Sauer is hudge acomplishment. Ricky’s biggest key is the ability to mesh a marriage of jiu-jitsu and wrestling no one is out there doing what he is this is why many are calling him the secret weapon of MMA right now, he is training fellow black belt jiu-jistu players who are in the UFC right now those who are at different weights. How many 155lb submission guys are out there that can out wrestle a high calibor 220 to 250lb wrestler or jiu-jistu player like ricky has! He is a goal seeker and a teqnical engineer he is good in his dealings with his fellow man he is a great friend to those around him. I am glad to call him coach, professor as well as calling him and his family friends.

As someone who has only been able to participate at Ricky’s University of Grappling intermittently, I am very impressed with his ability to teach things clearly and succinctly. His videos are some of the few I actually watch in hopes of really learning something (i.e. something that I might actually go for the next time I roll), and every class that I have attended with him has resulted in my picking up something repeatedly useful (a gift that keeps on giving). I have worked with many martial arts instructors, in many different disciplines, and Ricky is the real deal.

I have recently started working with Ricky, the past couple of months. Of all the coaches I have worked with, his style of teaching makes the most sense. I learn something one day and use it in sparring the next. Anyone with a desire to improve at grappling should train with him. Regardless of skill level, you will learn a lot.

I have known and worked with Ricky since my military discharge in 2007. Ricky is a phenomenal instructor, but more important he is a phenomenal person. Even with my military service-connected disability Ricky shows me techniques and alternatives that allow me to be successful at defending myself and others around me. Ricky’s teaching style is such that everyone can learn from him. He will take the time to assist EVERYONE in class, and you don’t feel as if you are a demand on him or his time. I have only been able to attend his trainings intermittently but in my opinion Ricky is currently the greatest BJJ/grappling instructor/practitioner I have ever had the blessing of working with (and i have trained with a few.) No matter where you are at on the training/experience spectrum Ricky will help you elevate your game to an entirely different level….come on out to the University of Grappling and find out for yourself!

After having trained in one martial arts style or another for nearly 30 years, I think I can tell the difference between a good instructor and an average instructor. Ricky is a MASTER! He has turned my teenage son into a grappling beast, and has taught and inspired an older man to get back on the mat. His style is an extremely street effective style, and his techniques never waste unnecessary time and energy. His techniques have been proven in the cage, and on the streets. He will be known very soon for his law enforcement/military defensive tactics training, like he is known for his UFC/FILA training. Ricky makes me a better fighter, and has given me additional skills to get me home every night. Most importantly, Ricky has been a wonderful role model to the young athletes in our gym. He comports his personal life like his professional…with honor and a passion for living. Ricky’s greatest accomplishment is his family. Thank you for being our dear friend.

Ricky has always been humble and willing to teach anyone that he can about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I’m glad to see that he is getting the credit that he deserves. It is good to see him getting this exposure and training all these “well known” warriors. He loves what he does and you can tell by how he goes about teaching. He is giving his Professor Pedro Sauer a great name and it is good to see Ricky teaching and doing what he loves.

I’ve never been taught by Ricky, but my father has and I’ve seen how Ricky’s teachings have improved my dad’s fighting skills. My entire family knows and loves Ricky and when we talk about him with other people, there’s always a sense of awe and admiration. If you want a BJJ teacher that will teach you applicable skills and become a role model for you or someone you know, look no further than Ricky Lundell.

Ricky is the Best! I had the pleasure of working with him at the FILA Grappling World Team Camp and then he came to my Pin2win Wrestling Camp in Pa for a week. Ricky was a sponge. Every time I showed him a move he was thinking of 15-20 ways to apply it and he would drill it until he knew he could hit it live on anyone. He is a great student and teacher of Grappling, BJJ and Submission from anywhere. I’ve seen alot of teachers, but Ricky is truly amazing. My vote goes out to Ricky as the Best BJJ/Sumbission Teachers on this planet. What is even nicer, is the Ricky is a phenominal person who will go out of his way to help anyone. He is great!

Ricky not only teaches you the moves that work but teaches you how to best use them. He doesn’t teach fluff moves that work once in a blue moon and in my time training with him he has discovered at least 6 techniques I have never seen anywhere else. His style, technique, philosophy, and training methods are revolutionary for the jj world, he is aptly named the wizard of jujitsu.

I’ve been attending Ricky Lundell’s school 3X a week since August 2006. He was a fairly new black belt at the time. He was a brilliant instructor at the time and what he could do technically was astounding. I felt like I was watching Houdini. As time has passed and Ricky won two world championships, trained with Cael and Mean Gene, I watched his personal and teaching skills transition beyond any instructor I had ever studied with. Here in the Lindon area there must be 6 different Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) instructors. I often ask myself: “Why would anyone train with them when the best in the world is just down the street?” It is like asking, “Why would anyone attend a community college when they could attend Harvard for the same price?” I still don’t understand it. It beggars the mind. Ricky is the real deal. He understands movement on the mat better than anyone I’ve ever known. He studies with the best and conveys their’s and his knowledge to we few who don’t see the world in the same way. Frankly after over five years of hard work I’m still astonished.

Hey Rob, # 44… What’s your real and full name? Always interesting to hear who is accusing people of cheating! 🙂 You got comments by two of the most well off guys in MMA/UFC on the page (Lauzon/Hardy)… I live in Poland and travel around the world for MMA training. Currently training in the USA and visiting Garcia’s place next. Lundell has many votes because he is internationally famous. Most everyone knows him here in Europe. Since the world championships he became an overnight Grappling/MMA celeb here. Didnt hurt watching his student “Frank Mir” tear Nogeira’s arm off. Everyone knows about the Hybrid of his Wrestling/Jiu-Jitsu combination…. I’m surprised he only has 1800 votes… Are you just mad your instructor is half as liked as Lundell is? Hate to break the news the rest of the world knows already, Ricky is a Hybrid and the Evolution of the sport. Ive trained with and/or attended seminars with Sauer, Lister, Margarita, Laimon, Liborio, Galvoa, Vitor Ribeiro, Jacare, Roger, Caio, and Lundell… Not one of these guys compares to what Lundell has become with his Folkstyle Wrestling and his Grappling mix. I had the pleasure of watching him and Cael Sanderson battle. This guy is Olympic level at wrestling (hell even Gene Mills one of the greatest wrestlers of all time commented saying how good Lundell is), World Champ FILA 2x, Team USA, World class jits, and smokes the best guys in MMA in Grappling no matter the weight class… Pedro Sauer doesn’t even compare!!! I don’t know of one competition Sauer has ever won except for beating up an untrained body builder in the 90’s. His claim to fame is that he trained with the Gracie’s. Hate to break more news…. A lot of people have trained with the Gracie’s. Sorry he is 1000 votes below him “Rob”. More people “Like” MMA and reality based fighting, geeks and weirdos are looking for schoolyard “Self-Defense”. This isnt Brazil, we arent fighting for Surf Spots and the last Acai bowl with Granola, go buy a gun! I’d be interested to hear how many times Sauer has helped Lundell since Lundell got his black belt in Jiu-Jitsu 6-7yrs ago, and Sauer moved to Virginia?

I was only a blue belt when Richard was finished with Pedro so I never knew him. I dont know.

As for his as a grappler, he is unreal. But, don’t take my word for it, make time to roll with him yourself and you decide. I have seen some pretty top notch guys get their butts handed to them by Ricky……some guys are good with that and want to learn…….some aren’t. Talk is cheap.

While his expertise is well above average in BJJ, what struck me is his ability to related to every level of student, not only by way of counsel, but then getting in there and having a match with them. This experiential methodology has helped everyone I’ve seen him teach and contributed to their ability to advance and win in various facets of their athletic and academic pursuits. There is no doubt that he deserves the title of “best” instructor.

Ricky has mastered his craft and as long as my family has been going to his GYM.Ricky has been genuine and easy to approach. In the 3 years I have watched Ricky work harder than anyone I have ever met, and he never overlooked a student who had a question or needed to get clarification on a move. Almost every time he himself would get down and show them what they needed to do to understand completely before moving on!

I started training with Pedro Sauer in Jan of 2006 and when he moved out of Utah I started training with Ricky full time from August of 2006 until the Summer of 2011. In that time I was able to work with several of Pedro’s black belt students in Utah and Ricky stood out as being very thorough in his technique as well as having an incredible ability at passing that knowledge on to his students. He focuses on techniques that are “high percentage” and he has a sincere desire to see his students grow. I believe his combination of wrestling and jiu-jitsu make him unique and I am proud of the time I was able to spend training with one of the best in the game.

Coach has been a world-renowned brand that has garnered the reputation of manufacturing highly fashionable handbags. The coach outlet collection does not just center on handbags but also offers backpacks for that overnight camping trip you annually have with your friends. Just because it is a camping trip it doesn’t mean to say that you can no longer squeeze some sophistication and a hint of elegance into it, right? They also offer shoulder bags for that girly feel. If you try to look at their online catalogs you will see that a wide array of cross body bags are also included and all these bags no matter what the form are designed uniquely while still maintaining the sophistication that coach outlet online has been known for.

Ricky has put in well over 20,000 hours of on and off the mat grappling work since I started him in Professor Pedro Sauer’s Gracie Jiu-Jitsu class at age 6 in 1992. I did not know anyone could work so hard and with so much focus. He can do all the traditional GJJ grappling work with Pedro Sauer perfection, transition into an All-American NCAA level wrestling, and blend the two with perfect precision. He has proven his abilities winning two FILA World Submission titles. Every time I am on the mat with him I realize no matter how long I live I will never catch his level of greatness in both grappling ability and coaching talent. If you can train under him you should. Your view of grappling will grow larger and larger every day.

Ricky is not only one of the brightest innovative instructors to grace the UFC.His personality and intense desire to develop the best attributes in all his students, is a testament to his skills and abilities.

As a 15 year active Police Officer and a Pro MMA fighter I look for technique that I can learn to help in both areas. BJJ is the best sport for both areas. I have been to several seminars that Ricky has put on and they are down to earth teaching that you can take home and immediatley use. If you have not trained with him, you should. I promise you will get better. Keep up the good work!

Ricky is freaking amazing! He has innovated the perfect combo of wrestling and BJJ. The nicest, most humble beast I ever met.

I have had the honor of being instructed by Ricky a few occasions. Though I am not in the martial arts field I am in law enforcement and have had the privilege of Ricky coming to our department and teaching us some vital defensive tactic moves. I fell more confident in defending myself and others because of the techniques Ricky has shared with me.

Ricky is a great role model. As I was growing up as a young kid I got to hear all kinds of stories about Ricky from my father and his father as well, all four of us share a love for martial arts and competing. It makes me happy to see how far Ricky has come. He has spent most his life working on and off the floor with his passion and love for BJJ. My favorite story about Ricky is how dedicated he was, when he wasn’t at school he was on the floor. Even when he was home he was always practicing and evolving in his martial arts. Ricky I think you are awesome! Your my hero.

Ricky is an amazing coach. The best thing was his knowledge of body mechanics and the physics of the techniques. As a big guy I have trouble with certain techniques, but Ricky is always able to look at me while I do the move and tell me how to adjust the technique to make it work for my body. He also has countless tricks that he has shown me to not only submit my opponents, but submit opponents who know much more than I.
