    I went here for a couple of “Muay Thai” classes and I was very disappointed. I wouldn’t recommend this place for anyone who wants to take Muay Thai or kickboxing. I honestly don’t know if the trainers that I worked with for those two classes are even certified instructors. So my opinion is I would definitely not go here again. I would recommend going to a school that’s the real deal instead of this one. One where you feel like your really going to be taught the art of Muay Thai. Not one that feels like the person who owns the school is treating you like hes a used cars salesmen trying to sell you a gym membership. Sorry but that was my experience here and I’m trying to warn others so that I might be able to spare them some time.

    Wow. I was really surprised with your comment MMALOVER. I’m sorry that you had a bad experience. Maybe you came in during a cardio class and you wanted fight training?
    The instructors there are highly qualified and there is even a 2-time Olympian, Roberto Barrajas teaching boxing there. Roberto has trained 5 world champs in boxing, including Rene Arrendondo.
    Roberto is a legend in the boxing community.
    The other stand up fight trainer is Juan Cardona. They guy has great kickboxing experience and is also certified under Pete Jacbos (one of Bruce Lee’s original students)
    Most of the people who fight train M W F night around 7:30 and Tues and Thurs at 4:30.
    The BJJ there is sick. This school is part of BJJ Revolution team, 4 -time national champs in BJJ and the mat is huge!!!! 2200 sq ft.
    Anyway, sorry for your bad experience. I would encourage you to stop by Wednesday for Friday night at 7:30 to check out the fight training!!!!

    Hey MMALover, please use your brain and read the title of the gym. This place is a BJJ place, not muay thai. They specialize in BJJ. You don’t order burritos from a specialty burger joint. Hands down, good BJJ.

    truth be told this gym is awesome! the instructors are top notch the training is sick. and all the people there in general are real cool there is no mat bullies there trying to prove they’re better than you, its a really good environment for kids and adults. I would most definitely recommend this gym to any one just looking for a work out or for those who want to take their fighting skill to the next level. I’ve been a member for over a year now and i originally came in just to try out a jui jitsu class and from then on i fell in love with BJJ. i didn’t come in trying to lose any weight, but it happened any way since i started I’ve lost 25 pounds and gained lots confidence I’m in really good shape and my wife loves it. This year of training has gone by fast for me because we are constantly learning new things, and within this short amount of time the couching staff has taken me from not knowing anything to winning 1st place in a jui jitsu tournament and 2nd in an other because of the knowledge they have given me. And its because of this gym that i will forever be a Brazilian Jui Jitsu practitioner!
