Adult Beginners Program

“I have been training Jiu Jitsu for nearly 8 months. For the past three, I have been in Tennessee for school and all the while, have continued to train at RMA. My school program is wrapping up and it’s coming time for me to move back home… even though my time training Jiu Jitsu accounts for less than half of my training so far, I know that I will never forget these three months!
I feel that I have come a long way as a white belt during my stay in Tennessee. The instruction is top notch and questions are always welcome.

“Joining this academy was one of my better decisions. I had never done any kind of martial arts training and my primary goal was to get in shape. I’ve been going 3 to 4x a week for a month….so far…I’ve lost 10lbs, have increased flexibility, increased strength, increased self confidence, and greatly improved cardio. I’m also learning self defense in the process. Professor Marcelo is extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and teaches in an easy to understand manner. I have not met a single person here that has not been extremely friendly and willing to help me learn more.
