Googled self defense classes, Somehow was fortunate enough to come across MMA academy which led me to come in a check it out. What caught my eye was that it was the real deal, not some class where you do drills you'll never really use or classes where you don't even spar. At the MMA academy you will learn techniques then spar with other people to practice what you learned. I came in wanting to learn just self defense now I want to get better so I can compete at tournaments with some of the other guys! He definitely knows his stuff!

The first few months after joining the team everything was great. Professor pereira was very welcoming and showed to be a great instructor. After a few months he shows his true colors. He is not considerate about his student adult or children all he care about his money he greedy he only care about getting paid he doesn't care whether his students are okay or not as long as he is getting paid that is all that counts.

I recently joined MMA Academy and have loved my experience thus far! Professor Pereira is incredibly knowledgable, welcoming, and genuine. He is committed to helping each of his students attain their individual goals while fostering a team atmosphere. As a new student, I felt welcomed and got plenty of attention to bring me up to speed. The studio itself is clean, bright, and fully equipped with all of the bags, mats, cages, and equipment you could ever want to train with. I joined MMA Academy in particular because of the authentic training experience that I knew it would provide. I have gotten stronger, learned a ton, and am excited to continue on my journey. I recommend MMA Academy wholeheartedly!

My experience here so far has been stellar. Excellent learning structure and plenty of attention towards newer students. As rough as sparring looks, there is great etiquette involved and everyone is very respectful. The first few days were tough, but every day afterwards has gotten a little easier. My endurance is much better. A little history about me. ive cut one of my fingers off, I have screws in my back and 3 fused vertebrae, I have pins and a rod in my ankle. I was also a 2 pack a day smoker for over a decade, and I've lived in pain for YEARS. If I can do this then anyone can. I decided to make a decision to better myself physically and mentally and joining this gym was on of the best decisions I've made. I can actually move around now. My back and my leg feel so much better. All I needed was to get active and stay active. Join this gym, learn these arts, learn what it means to have heart. It IS a challenge, but it is well worth it.. this will be one of the best decisions you've made in years

Professor is top of line. He cares for his students like his own children. He teaches us to be humble and be the best that we can be. I couldn't have chose a better gym and better team to be a part of. This is my family. We have the opportunity to compete in tournaments every month and professor brings out the best in you. Can't wait to see what the future holds for my team. #team #pereira!!!!!!!!!!
