About Us:

Isla means island in Filipino and Chamorro, and at Isla Jiu Jitsu we welcome you into our tight-knit family (aka our island!). Isla gives our students the opportunity to exercise mentally as well as physically, giving them the chance to personalize taught concepts. Allowing Jiu Jitsu lessons to be original and adaptive towards a student’s particular style of movement improves the student’s independence, empowerment, and feeling of accomplishment. On a physical level, martial arts benefit those of all ages with overall improved strength, stamina, agility, and defense.

Our History:

When he first moved to Washington with his family, Jeff Macatangay was motivated by money. Unfortunately, he realized that this financial drive meant he was putting his loved ones second, missing important family moments for work. Jeff wanted to be able to find work-life balance and be present with family. Training Jiu Jitsu allowed Jeff to find that balance by showing him how to respect his family more. The changes brought about by training Jiu Jitsu exceeded his expectations and he wanted to bring that change to others by establishing Isla.
