    Ben, Nate and David Skora are awesome instructors here! I’m sure the others are fantastic too, but I have only really worked with them. I have been training at the Burnsville location predominately for a year now and am a gold belt in their MMA training program. It’s intense training but also done in a safe way. They are also a member of the Rickson Gracie International Jiu Jitsu Association. I’ve trained in other art styles before, but really have come to love BJJ and Muay Thai Kickboxing (I had previously done Shorin-ryu Karate and Taekwondo). Always clean, friendly, helpful and professional. Highly recommend this place. I also really like that the people at this gym don’t sit and trash talk other gyms out there or the people of other gyms, unlike a lot of the others around here that seem to like to do that, which doesn’t make the gyms they are associated with look very professional. I like the positive atmosphere of the Cove. It’s well rounded but rooted in Gracie Jiu Jitsu. The Gracies do seminars at the Cove locations as well. Highly recommend this place.

    Warrior’s Cove is a great MMA school! Professional, positive and incredibly experienced group of instructors and the senior members are always willing to help out newer members. I’ve trained there for about a year now and have trained in other martial arts programs through other instructors elsewhere (EP & IGH) and this is by far the best that I’ve found. Highly recommend it. They have programs in BJJ, Judo, Muay Thai Kickboxing, and Eskrima and offer fitness and family classes as well as free monthly women’s self defense and competition team training (for people that want to fight professionally). Pretty much something for everyone.
