Does this sound Familiar?


Do you feel a lack of confidence or self-esteem during your day-to-day?

Have you ever felt anxiety when you’re walking down the street at night? 

Or perhaps, you feel intimidated by larger guys, especially if you’re not very big or strong…

Do you feel out of shape? Like you could benefit from more endurance, losing some weight, and developing a stronger body.

Maybe you want to start something new, but question whether you’re too old to start a martial art.

Or feel like you’ve missed the boat and don’t want to end up being ridiculed against more experienced opponents.

Don’t worry, it’s not too late at all. Actually, if you’re here reading this, then you’re on the right track.

But, I’m anxious about starting a Martial Art


Seriously, I understand how you’re feeling.  I also had to walk into a martial arts gym alone when I started with dozens of members.

But don’t worry, you’re going to be fine.

The thought of starting a Martial art can make some people feel anxious. 

Perhaps you’re not too comfortable with confrontation, or you may feel uneasy with being put under physical pressure…

You’re in safe hands here.

Once you start attending classes regularly, you’ll notice your skill level increasing. Things that you couldn’t do before, will soon become easy for you.

And we’ll assist you every step of the way as your confidence grows.

Read the stories below of how our members overcame crippling anxiety, developed more confidence, improved their physical condition, and went on to win tournaments across the country.


Everyone has a balance regarding how they feel physically in certain situations. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches you to feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations and it truly shows you what you're capable of withstanding AND how much control you can. Be part of maybe the best community of human beings I've ever met, try this out. I guarantee you won't regret it.
Since starting at the academy I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Starting in the fundamentals class and gradually progressing. For many years I suffered from lack of confidence and crippling anxiety. I started training Jiu Jitsu to gain confidence and I was able to excel with the team entering several competitions, pro cards and winning multiple gold medals.
When I first joined the academy I was overweight and lacked confidence. When I started I was able to push myself everyday and the weight shed in weeks which gave me so much confidence to train more and compete. A fantastic place to train Jiu Jitsu whether a newcomer or an experienced practitioner. I would highly recommend the academy to anyone, come try it!

this opportunity is for action takers only!!!
