"If you want a place that has people who are friendly while still work hard, and who will give it their all while being super conscious about the potential injuries that go with any contact sport, this is the place to be. In just under six months, I've added a lot of lean muscle mass and cut a significant percentage of body fat...I'm now going there 5 - 6 times a week - purely because it's such good fun and the people there are awesome."

"I have now been an active member in both the MMA Fight Science and the Brazilian jiu-jitsu classes for about  6 Months. Everyone in class is good spirited, egos are left outside the mat. Everything is explained in detail, with great patience, perfect articulation and with great attention to the details. I never felt intimidated and all the higher belts make an effort to make you feel welcomed and go out of their way to make sure you are doing the drills correctly."
