    Waaaay to much to say about Next Level and the instructors there. First of all, here’s my story. Let’s face it, a MMA/Jiu Jitsu/Muay Tai or any other GYM is intimidating.. I wanted to get into shape, and learn the sport and technique for years (literally) but was nervous about it. My thought was that when I got there everyone would make fun of me or not make me feel part of the group etc. I can be honest and say I was scared, especially because I was out of shape. THAT CHANGED WITHIN MY FIRST 3 MINUTES AFTER WALKING IN THE DOOR!!! Now, I attend Muay Tai & Jiu Jitsu, my fiance take the kick boxing, and my 2 daughters take the little ninja’s classes. I know your fear, and there’s nothing wrong to admit it. But if you let your fear get in the way of life in general, think of the memories and events in your life you would of missed out on. I cpersonally challenge you to put that fear aside for 1 sesion and I can PROMISE you that you’ll return. You owe it to yourself and your family. There’s all kind of people there, white, black, hispanic, big, small, girls, guys, kids, adults, and anyone else I left out. You will not regret this. I know I said I would keep it short but I’m so passionate about Next Level because they literally changed my life.

    I cannot say enough about Next Level Martial Arts and what they have done for my son. When we arrive, he doesn’t walk to the door, he runs! He can’t wait to get in there because he enjoys the sport, the instructors, and the friends he has made over this last year. Everyone there is welcoming, the owner truly cares about his athletes, and the gym itself is clean and organized. My son has benefitted at multiple levels. Not only is he improving as an athlete, but he has also gained confidence, good sportsmanship, focus in school, and discipline at home. I wouldn’t take him anywhere else! In fact, they hav so many classes…I can’t wait to sign up for the fit kickboxing myself :)

    I am a martial artist, mixed martial artist, teacher, student, and body guard. My training has brought me to russia, thailand, brazil, mexico, canada, and all over the states. NEXT LEVEL MARTIAL ARTS is by far the most complete training facility! yes there are others, and only 2 in the north east ohio area that matter.. Next LEVEL is the first! The teaching staff is underrepresented! James Terlecky and his father, ARE AMAZING PEOPLE. The kindest most knowledgeable group of people, and in the overall game of the art of combat. Respect, Discipline, Confidence, and a better philosophical view on life as a whole. Its pricy, BUT WELL WELL WORTH IT!.. Fact of the matter is, if you want to learn martial arts. not just 1 art, but the art of defense, and offense, of if you wish to hone your skills as a professional fighter, this is the place to go. i would also recommend, for a more ruthless aggression and overall tougher experience to try C.M.A. I personally believe you cant have one, without the other. JIM TERLECKY and Next level is the place to take you, your kids, elders, and professionals.. 5 star!

    I’m a newer student at this gym and my experience has been nothing but positive. The instructors are awesome and so are the students. Everyone is easygoing and approachable. If you feel a little intimidated to come try it out I can assure you that feeling will go away after your first day, actually probably the first few minutes. I can honestly say that starting to train here has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Its only been 2 months and I feel great. I cant imagine how I’m gonna feel in a year. I have lost over 20 pounds and I’ve been having fun while doing it. I highly recommend this gym to anyone in the area that is interested in learning Martial Arts from top notch instructors while getting in the best shape of your life.

    My 9 year old son has been going to Next Level for over a year now. It is always the highlight of his week! The instructors are very knowledgeable and have a great time with the kids! Not only has my son grown in his skills at the gym, but he has matured in many areas at home because of the discipline and hard work Next Level has brought into his life. The kids are all so kind and encouraging towards one another and that is a result of the tone that has been set by the instructors! Next Level is the best MMA gym in the area!

    Roughly a year ago, I walked into the Next Level Academy for the first time. A familiar face, someone who I had met at a tournament years ago took me aside and started working with me one on one. I hadn’t even intended to do anything more than watch the kickboxing class, and here I was refining technique with someone I now know as my good friend.
    I’ve known or have been around James Terlecki for at least nine years, and used to sit with him and his father at the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments. He has always been very open and generous, even before I was his student. It wasn’t until I joined his school in Youngstown, and the positive and technical training environment it breeds, that I myself have achieved the Next Level in my grappling career.

    NEXT LEVEL MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY IS AN ABSOLUTELY GREAT PLACE FOR BOYS, GIRLS, MEN, AND WOMEN OF ALL AGES WHO ARE INTERESTED IN LEARNING MARTIAL ARTS; KIDS CLASSES, FITNESS, SELF DEFENSE, AND/OR COMPETITION. JAMES TERLECKI, OWNER/OPERATOR AND HEAD INSTRUCTOR IS VERY HELPFUL AND HAS GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL WHEN INSTRUCTING. AS FOR THE ACADEMY ITSELF IT IS VERY CLEAN AND HAS ALL TH TRAINING EQUIPMENT ONE WOULD NEED. THE PEOPLE IN MY HONEST OPINION IA WHAT MAKES NEXT LEVEL SPECIAL, EVERYONE IS ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP AND WITHOUT EGO?!
