Professor Gazzy Parman

Kids Head Instructor


Gazzy Parman is a Brazilian jiu jitsu pioneer, and a member of the female BJJ “Dirty Dozen” (first 12 women outside Brazil to reach the rank of black belt in the sport). A unique character in the female competitive grappling scene throughout the 2000’s decade, Gazzy’s outspoken demeanor and competitive accolades made her a fan favorite across the globe, having also raised the awareness of big brands such as Tapout and even the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to the women’s divisions, with Parman being the very first female athlete to be sponsored by both companies. Gazzy Parman was one of the very first BJJ/MMA female gym owners in the USA, through her LVL5 academy and the first and only female Grappling Hall of Fame inductee.




Training with Professor Kim and his staff are the highlights of my week.  The facilities are great -- always clean and neat.  The staff is always professional and supportive, regardless of where you are in your training in terms of skill or physical fitness.  The environment is extremely positive, and Professor Kim and his staff encourage and reinforce that environment to make training a great experience.

I have been training with Professor Kenny Kim at Impact/CTA Atlanta for about 9 months. Over that period of time, I have lost 13 pounds of fat, gained 2 pounds of muscle, lost two inches from my waist, and my blood pressure is better than it's ever been. I have always been active at traditional gyms and came to the academy in fairly good shape, but now at 34 I'm in the best shape I've been in since college. I owe all of this to Master Kim, not only through his teaching of the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but also through the principals of clean eating and the jiu jitsu lifestyle he instills in each of his students. Not only is training incredible exercise and the most fun exercise I've ever participated in, but the friends I have made while training make going to the gym easy and fun! It's an incredibly encouraging and friendly atmosphere, with great instruction and wonderful people! I can't wait to get back to the mat!

A great gym and atmosphere! Professor Kenny Kim is an outstanding instructor and coach. His passion for jiu-jitsu is evident in everything he does. From classes to tournaments, the team is top notch and always pushing each other to improve and better themselves as individuals and athletes. The gym is very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Classes are available to kids and adults, with a great family-friendly atmosphere. I have been to gyms all over the world, including some of the most famous in Brazil and the U.S., and professor Kim's rivals those in quality, amenities, and cleanliness. Top notch facility!
