Tampa Jiu Jitsu has been a great experience for my family. My sons started training with Ryan then I decided to give it a try and it’s been a blast, it’s also one of the better workouts I’ve ever done. I think the best thing about Tampa Jiu Jitsu is the atmosphere, everyone is willing to take a take a few minutes to explain or teach a new technique, you feel very welcomed from the moment you step on the mat. I’ve taken other martial arts and in my opinion Jiu Jitsu is the most effective self-defense. It doesn’t matter if the other person is bigger or stronger, because solid Jiu Jitsu will win out all the time. I can’t say enough positive things about Ryan and his staff. Give Tampa Jiu Jitsu a call and see for yourself.
