This is a great place to learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Coach Murph is one of the best if not the best BJJ coach around. Everybody is so friendly and helpful and you learn a lot of practical self defense. The competition team ,“MURPHJITSU” , is legit and they do extremely well in high level competitions all over! I am thankful and proud to be a part of this martial arts family! Osss! *Update- I just started taking the striking classes and enjoy it a ton. Coach Josh and his team are amazing! Awesome drills and the energy is great!

This place is awesome! The environment is very laid back and the people are great. I had no prior striking experience before my first class but that was no problem at all. Coach Josh broke everything down so it was easy for me to pick up on things quickly! Whether you're goal is competition or just having fun and getting in shape I would HIGHLY recommend this place!
