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

Program & Pricing FAQs

My child isn't athletic. Can he/she still participate in martial arts?

Absolutely. Martial arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities develop them even more.

Are these martial arts classes fun?

Yes! After all, these are children we're dealing with here. And kids love their fun. We do a variety of games and activities that have kids laughing and smiling. We work hard here - but we play just as hard.

What's a good age for a child to start martial arts?

Honestly, practically every age is a good age to start! We have young children, as well as teenagers. We also have specific programs for adults. So no matter what age - we've got you covered.

Can martial arts cause injury?

Because we place such a huge focus on safety and injury prevention, we're proud to say that injuries are very few and far between with our program. In fact, because martial arts gets you in great shape, and makes you strong and flexible, people often see LESS injuries in their lives.

Do you have to be in good shape to take martial arts?

Not at all! In fact, many people use martial arts as a way to get in good shape. They come to us out of shape, and quickly become athletic and limber.

Is martial arts violent?

No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.
