Sensei Max Kafka

As a Minnesota native, my goal is to make our state a grappling powerhouse. As a grappler, my passion is teaching students how to overcome obstacles through self-confidence and positivity while having a blast. Nothing is better than seeing a student realize that they are a leader and a role model for others.


Sensei Mark Kafka

As you guessed it, that's my son up there! I've had the pleasure of coaching hundreds of Minnesota's Judo athletes over the last 25 years and I'm proud to say that we've produced many state and national champions. More than that, my goal is to grow The Grappler Station's diverse community through sport. We look forward to having you on the mats soon!

Sensei Keith Robertson

You can't miss Sensei Keith's positivity and energy on the mat. He's our in-house referee and brings a lifetime of experience to our team. 

Sensei Carl Bussian
