You won't find a better place to learn and train in the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in southwest Kansas. The coaches are very thorough, with an emphasis on safety and drilling the fundamentals as the foundation for your learning. I easily give it 5 stars, but seriously, try it out for yourself. Call and ask for a complimentary private session, just like I did, and you be the judge! If you are reading this, then I hope to see you in class!!
I'll start this review by stating that I've been involved in martial arts in some fashion or another for 15 years, including Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do, etc., and I boxed for 7 years including through the college at the University of Nevada, Reno. I surprise myself when I say that this is the best learning environment I've experienced. The instructors require beginners to attend 40 fundamentals classes before beginning to actively roll (grapple)... During these, they teach basic moves and positions, as well as the escapes for each. This sounds simple, but I've never learned such a wealth of techniques so quickly and been able to retain it. It also (more importantly) allows me to feel comfortable with the people I grapple with. We all learn the control and skill to prevent us from injuring each other once we progress to actively grappling.
Lastly, I cannot over-stress how inviting this group has been! The students and the instructors all felt like family within the first month... It's nice to see women and kids getting involved as well. It's a great family environment and very laid back while also being structured.
If you're on the fence about trying something like this out, I would tell you not to hesitate... It's a very comfortable atmosphere, and you'll make friends quickly. What a great group of instructors, and I applaud them for bringing such a high quality school to a small community like Dodge City.
