  • All of the Black Belt Instructors are helpful and willing to answer any questions. There is no meat head mentally that some martial arts facilities have. Egos are not welcomed at this friendly gym. All of the Coaches are humble and make class fun. I recommend this place for anyone that wants to learn self defense in a safe enjoyable environment.

  • I have trained with Professor Marcus Antelante and Instructor Victoria Cáceres for years. Their level of Jiu-Jitsu and professionalism is among the best. Very clean facility, family-friendly, and team atmosphere. Whatever your age, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will positively impact your life for the better.

  • I just finished a Krav Maga workout led by Mario. Because it was my first visit since the Molina Brothers took over, Coach Tony dropped what he was doing and took me to the side and showed me some basics before we joined the group for partner drills, where he continued working with me. The workout was tough (and I had come directly from a 1-hr boot camp workout) but Coach Tony was very encouraging and kept me going. I loved it!
