A Message From Coach Shawn
See You On The Mat!
I started at Fenix Highlanders about 5 months ago. I have seen nothing but great improvements in myself mentally and physically since beginning BJJ. It is clear that Coach Shawn is experienced, knowledgeable, and passionate about what he teaches us at Fenix Highlanders Club. Coach Shawn cares for his students on and off the mat. The members of Fenix Highlanders Club are all amazing people and have become my BJJ family. There is no doubt you’ll be comfortable and welcomed from the start as Coach Shawn has created a clean, safe, and healthy environment at Fenix. If you’re looking for a BJJ gym, this is the place to be. I look forward to continue training here!
I first stumbled upon Fenix Highlanders Club on my travels through NH a few years back. What a gem to find in Littleton! As someone involved in Jiu Jitsu for the past ten years, Coach Shawn and all the participants at Fenix Highlanders offer the best of Jiu Jitsu; community, a welcoming environment, detailed instruction regardless of rank, and tough yet humbling rolls. I look forward to continuing to visit anytime i’m in the area!
I’m a purple belt who dropped in for a class with Professor Shawn and the gang back in November. Loved the space, the people, and the instruction. Highly recommend checking out Fenix if you’re in and around Littleton. Thank you, Professor Shawn!
I have been part of this BJJ family a long time now. I was concerned that coming in as a female I would be treated with kid gloves and not get as much out of it as some of my male counter parts. Not the case. I feel like everyone comes in unsure but you leave knowing your strengths. It doesn’t matter what your body type, what your gender, I never feel like I don’t learn and improve. I started this in my 40s, but have always been very active, this has proven to me I can always take on more. I’ve never been stronger in my life. I’ve learned patience, because that can often win over strength. MMA or BJJ is not for everyone. I’ve had my share of bumps and bruises, and handed a few out unintentionally, but if you are willing to humble yourself, be tired, be challenged, but still want more, this sport and this place is for you.
I have trained with Coach Shawn for over two years. He is a great coach who cares deeply about Jiu Jitsu and about his students. Even when work and family issues have kept me out of the gym for extended periods of time, Coach Shawn has consistently checked in with me to make sure I was doing ok.
As for the classes, don’t expect a walk in the park! Classes can be both physically and mentally demanding, but if you come in with an open mind, listen to Coach Shawn, and put in an honest effort, Jiu Jitsu at Fenix Highlanders Club can be truly life changing!
