My review is for Muay Thai/Cardio Kick Boxing courses and the facility. I did not take BJJ or wrestling. The facility is clean and the staff are very helpful. I spent 2 years hear, first doing Muay Thai then I switched over to Cardio Kick Boxing. Muay Thai can be good if you find a class you enjoy. Some classes are very full and others are very empty. It depends on the time and who's teaching. The down side is that the evening classes have different instructors on different days, and this can get frustrating since they teach different styles. One instructor might do a more traditional muay thai style, and another would do a style that's like a hybrid with boxing. So if you want to show up daily you either show up to the earlier classes, which have a consistent instructor or you have to accept that you're going to have instructors that teach conflicting styles and just be flexible. As for the cardio kick boxing, I ended up preferring this because the instructor for that time of day is consistent, so you know what to expect from them, and I felt like I was getting a great workout from showing up to these classes. There are several different instructors, each dedicated to a different time slot, and they each have a different style of class, but all of them were keeping me on my toes and pushing me to my limits. The classes were definitely worth the money and time to improve my fitness.

I had a chance to train here while I was in town for work from Chicago. This place is by far one of the best facilities I have ever been to. The training is on another level. Not too many places you can line up and see 5 black belts lined up. Definitely one of my favorite GBs I have been to.

There aren’t enough stars to recommend this place. Houston is fortunate to have Professor Ulpiano and his extremely talented Professors and Coaches who are internationally renowned at Brazilian Jiujitsu. There is no better place for kids or adults to begin their journey and learn self-defense, instill confidence and discipline and make friends. My kids and I love this place and consider it a second family.
