Dear Friends, Students, and Family,

We are all in this together:


As the pandemic continues we are closed per the Stay-At-Home mandate along with other establishments in our home state. We are once again asking for your continued support through these trying times. At the same time we want to show our appreciation and commitment to all of you.

Owning a small business and running RCW for over 11 years has been a tremendous learning experience for myself and our staff. There’s nothing that fills us with more pride and joy than showing up to serve our community every day. It’s with much humility I have to lay bare that a loss in memberships would be devastating for us. We understand that everyone’s financial situation is different but we’re asking for your support during this hardship. We want RCW to be a place you can return to when this viral storm passes. Please don’t hesitate to call us if your situation changes, this isn’t going to be a straight line or even a smooth curve. We are here for you and while we ask for support we don’t desire to be anyone’s burden either.

Today on 4/5/2020 we’d like to make some announcements that benefit our tribe:

  1. We’ll be hosting numerous FREE seminars and workshops for all students and their families as soon as we’re able. This will include ALL programs and age ranges
  2. Academy gear such as sticks, apparel, and uniforms will be HALF off for the opening month. This includes the new custom Gi’s that people order prior to Christmas. They are in stock right now!
  3. Any Seminar fees paid for Pedro Sauer or other workshops will be promptly returned
  4. We are constantly updating live videos and home workouts on our PUBLIC facebook page. You don’t have to join FB to go watch any of the content. A lot of schools are hiding this behind a private group, we wanted to make sure our entire community can view these routines. Just head to our page at:¬†
  5. Check out our YouTube channel where we’re also posting tons of content right now as well as a backlog of videos from previous sessions:¬†


We’re trying to do even more!!

We currently have ALL the curriculum in the “can” for the first 3-4 years of every program. Right now we’re looking into editing as well as some graphic design before we launch this mega library. This is the culmination of more than 20 years of experience. As soon as we can announce something further on this you’ll be the first to know. And of course, this information is going to be free to all students.

While we’ve been posting several live videos on various platforms, we want your feedback on whether you feel that’s enough. Please give us feedback across any channel and let us know if you’d like to see live virtual classes. We’ll still keep our other irons hot as we roll out more content every day in these efforts. We greatly appreciate all of you. Without the warriors in our community RCW would cease to be a thing, and the level of support we’ve received is so monumental that it has literally brought a tear to my eye on occasion.

We value you, we are honored to know you and we believe that if all of us do our part, we will get through this together.
