Great group of folks here from the instructors to the students, they all want to see you succeed. If you want to learn self defense and grow your self-confidence here’s the place. And what a workout, but a fun one at that. Family oriented with both male and female instructors. Glad I started my journey here, thanks Mike and Jennifer.

You can tell that they really love helping and teaching others. My daughter enjoys the class so much and has learned so much. I recommend The Academy to everyone!

The kids love it! The instructers are kind and patient with the kids! I highly recommend you if you’re looking for a place to learn jui jitsu!

Instructors are great with our daughter and the other kids. They really make it a point to ask and make sure each student understands what they were just taught. This is NOT one of the move your kid through the ranks quick and pay for the next belt martial arts. There is a lot of grappling and on the mat teaching involved so that the students learn how to defend themselves in real life situations. The Grace Jui Jitsu works, I am a lot bigger and stronger than my daughter but she can put me in a chock hold or another submission move and there is nothing I can do. I feel really at ease knowing my 12 year old daughter is learning something that will help keep her safer when I’m not around. If you got a daughter remember, A RESTRAINING ORDER IS JUST A PIECE OF PAPER.

 Mike and Jen are great! Having a female instructor has made it so much more comfortable for me. Also, the mats and everything are CLEAN, unlike other places! The jiu jitsu instruction is very thorough, and the yoga class is probably the best I’ve ever taken.

Amy Elliot

 Professional and very welcoming atmosphere. The mats are kept CLEAN. Even though we had zero martial arts experience we were able to integrate into the program with the other more experienced students. The other the students are extremely helpful and there is a strong sense of team and respect. Yoga class is a good initial cardio workout followed with some deep stretching and finally, my favorite part, the relaxation. You can tell a lot about a place by the way they treat their newest white belt – no doubt The Academy is at the top.

This is a family friendly environment that teaches strength, endurance, and life lessons. It is a clean environment which makes it easier to find peace during yoga as well. I feel that anyone can learn their defensive lessons, from a beginner to an advanced student.
