I’ve trained at nine academies that I can think of, and this one stands out. The atmosphere is very conducive to developing your skill as a martial artist, and is a family friendly environment. I plan to spend several years here and enroll my children when they’re old enough.

This Academy is wonderful. It has inspired me to achieve life alignment, personal accountability, and further reinforce my life legacy. The training is exceptional and the instructors are fantastic. Professor Machado is a role model for us all.

Fun, safe, fantastic place for the whole family to train. Instructors are watchful and help each individual to master techniques and adapt moves based on body types and strengths. All students are respected, encouraged, and taught to help each other. Love this place!

I’m a student here. They have a world class head instructor who is a 7th degree BJJ black belt. Have several black belts which is rare. The school has a very diverse variety of ages, body types, and experience levels. Great camaraderie and positive atmosphere to learn in. What more could you possibly ask for?
