“Tim Sledd is one of the most dedicated students that I have. He is a
loyal Caique Jiu Jitsu representative and an instructor who pays
attention to the details and to the principles of Jiu Jitsu. I highly
recommend Tim Sledd’s classes to anyone who wants to learn Jiu

-Professor Carlos “Caique” Elias



I have done MMA for 3 years now. I started working with Tim Sledd
(Small Axe BJJ) just over a year ago. Tim tightened up all my
techniques (positioning, pressure, submissions) and gave me new ones
to suit my game. Tim’s coaching has now become the most
important part of my training. Whenever I have a fight coming up I
call Tim Sledd. Small Axe BJJ is where it is at!!!”

-Chris McDonald, Caribbean MMA Champion




 “I have been training for 6 years now, and of the myriad instructors I have met and worked with, Tim might be the best, and believe me when I say I have worked with some good people. Tim is certainly an excellent instructor, as well as an veritable badass himself. With an integrative and incremental approach, his teaching style is streamlined and mnemonic, and has done a lot to shape the way I teach my students. He has always been accommodating and flexible, and has always offered his services at a very reasonable price, which might be expected from someone who has made their way as a public defender. So then, why does a man like Tim Sledd need a testimonial? He doesn’t. His life is his witness, and he clearly loves what he does. You will not go wrong with this guy, seriously, contact him for a seminar, or become one of his students, you will be glad you did.”
