Best Jiu Jitsu gym I've belonged to. It is the right size for me, as it is personable and everyone is nice to get to know. The professor there is very experienced and has the accolades to match. Highly recommended, I lost 10lbs in the first 2 months!

I would seriously recommend this place to anyone. The professors here not only know exactly what they’re talking about but actually try to get you to understand it and apply it. Everything I learn here I find an applicable use for when sparring. Good atmosphere with inviting and helpful students. Best workouts I’ve ever gotten and the gym itself has everything you could think of.

I signed my then-11-year-old, who is now 12 years old. The bullying that my son faced at school and his lack of confidence were tough times. It is the first time that my son has participated in any sport. My son has been training in Muay Thai and BJJ for a few months now, and I must say that I have noticed a significant difference in him. His attitude is positive and his confidence is growing. School is fine. The professor believes in his team, is very dedicated, and is passionate about what he teaches. Very honest. Coaches and Team are great! Highly recommend.

My 9 y/o son and I joined in August. Here, we get to train together, which is a lot of fun and a unique experience. Professor, coaches, and classmates are great. Do the Muay Thai and BJJ classes back-to-back for an intense 2 hr workout. Been shedding weight since I started.

More than happy with the results of my children, not only in sports but also in their daily lives. I'm not going to get involved at first, it wasn't easy, but four months later you can see how much they have learned from their first tournament, two gold medals
