NEPA MMA, Sensei Kyle and his staff, is by far the best! I've tried a few other places in the past and they were not for me. Here, they understand that everyone learns differently and not at the same pace; even though there is structure, they also think outside of the box and don't let it restrict them or their students. Everyone is like family; very welcoming, friendly and accepting. Highly recommended!

We love NEPA MMA! All of the instructors are top of the line and AMAZING with the kids. The kids respect and listen to all of the staff. There are also many other activities to be involved in with the kids like the sleepovers, holiday parties and specials. No other place can compare

The best decision we have made was to enroll our son. We did our homework when it came to schools and there were some closer. Even one a friend runs. We liked what Kyle teaches. He knew our son by name from the day he met him and we believe he saw him as a child and not just one more payment. We have continued to be impressed by not only kyle but all involved in his school and have recommended NEPA MMA to several people and will continue to do so.

Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes

Try something different from the same old routine

Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.

By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.

It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques

The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.

By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.

Best of all, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Students Walk with Confidence and Pride

There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.

Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

Students who have a natural competitive drive love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.

Awesome facility and instructors!!! To name one, my brother Matthew Ratchford, he is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and is an awesome teacher! Stop down and check the place out, take one of Matt's have nothing to lose and so much to gain!

Great place. The instructors and class members are not judgmental but encouraging. Can’t wait to go back! I’m not an athlete and I’m not in shape but I felt comfortable there.

Do I need to know jiu-jitsu or Judo to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

No, you don’t. There are beginner classes available and many of the people who study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu have no prior martial arts training.

Do I need any special equipment to study Brazilian Martial Arts?

Students typically wear a Gi (two-piece garment worn by martial artists.) It is also typical for some students may want to wear a mouth guard. It’s a good idea to have a supply of athletic tape, as well.

As a beginner, do I need to spar?

No. Beginner classes focus on teaching basic techniques and safety, and you can then work your way up to controlled sparring in class.

Can Brazilian Jiu Jitsu help me defend myself?

Absolutely. It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.

Will taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes help me lose weight?

It can, particularly if you combine Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides a great, full-body workout that burns calories, builds muscles, and boosts the metabolism.
