We take our kids here twice a week for jujitsu and we love how they are progressing gradually each week. The coaches are attentive and they pay close attention to each student to make sure they are doing them right and understand the jujitsu's moves....

They Let me drop in for a beginner BJJ class while I was in town on vacation. Great gym, super clean and very friendly people. I felt welcomed and had an excellent training session. Iā€™d love to train here more and will look to The Academy every time i visit the area.

I train here when I visit for work! Love the training regiment. Jumping straight into specific training ensuring that time is used efficiently on activities relegated to improve your Jiu jitsu. Atmosphere is great and Haden is extremely knowledgeable.

Getting my first belt with Coach Justin was so rewarding. I had never experienced any martial arts training prior to starting in November. Since then I've trained with some of the most honorable and skilled coaches, with fellow fighters who have had years of diverse experiences and styles, and have an incredible time while burning heaps of calories. It feels so good to be in shape, to feel secure and strong in my own body and to know that if needed I could dominate an aggressor and escape. I plan to continue to progress with my belts and to be an outstanding example of feminine strength for my two little girls. LIFE CHANGING - THANK YOU ACADEMY!

I am so grateful I found this place! My 4-year-old son goes there and he loves it so much. The coaches are amazing. They are super fun and at the same time discipline them, and teach them how to respect each other and everyone else and be kind. I am seeing so much change in my son so far especially with discipline. They have these work sheets for reading, discipline and healthy eating that parents fill, and kids get strips for their belts whenever they complete a certain number. My son is motivated to do so much now. I highly recommend it for any parent who wants his kids to be in martial arts because they are learning so much more here!
