At Gracie Tampa, the best place to train in MMA in Tampa Bay, our method of self-defense instruction was developed to insure that students could defend themselves in a real fight. Gracie Tampa recently built a new, state-of-the-art training facility, located on Nebraska Avenue, just north of Fletcher Ave. We also just opened a second school in South Tampa (Gracie Tampa South)! Come in to visit one of our premiere training facilities and try one free week! There is absolutely no obligation. The North Tampa school has two training rooms with 1,700 square feet of mat space.
One of the rooms also has a collection of training and conditioning equipment, including heavy bags, Strong Man-sized tire, speed bag, training dummies, hanging rings, mechanical stretchers, fitness balls, jump ropes, punch mitts, training pads, an airdyne bike and rower, along with free weights and a Versaclimber. Gracie Tampa even has it own fenced and fully-padded Training Cage.
No matter what your age or physical condition, with us, you will learn how to use leverage and technique to successfully defeat a larger opponent. You don’t have to be in great shape. You don’t need to be big and strong, and you don’t need prior martial arts experience before you can benefit. One of the major advantages of Jiu-Jitsu is that it really works for everyone. Bring the whole family to our school. Jiu-Jitsu is also effective as a method of self-defense for women and children.
Put it to the test. Reading about Jiu-Jitsu is one thing, but nothing compares to the experience of even one lesson. Come in and Try One Free Week! There is absolutely no obligation. As an added bonus, the self-confidence you’ll gain from learning Jiu-Jitsu may actually make you less likely to be targeted for an attack, and that’s priceless!
