Why Choose Dojo Kyle Jiu-Jitsu?

Learn Self-Discipline

The foundation of martial arts is the focus of self-discipline incorporated into a students training. Instant gratification and the “I want it now” attitude hold people back from achieving true success. Self-restraint and self-discipline are learned traits for both children and adults. And they are central to what and how we teach.

Develop Self-Esteem

With confidence comes enhanced self-esteem. We utilize a goals based approach that boost self-esteem levels. This creates greater self-respect and self-esteem in our martial arts students.

  • This is a great place to train and learn. Coach Will and Coach Ryan do an excellent job of creating a positive, friendly, and family oriented environment for adults and kids. The kids class not only works on learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu but also learns positive life lessons that encourage self-respect and respect towards their peers and adults.

  • An extremely comfortable, clean and supportive environment. Coach Ryan and Coach Will are extremely knowledgable and take their time to provide the best training and experience possible. Fellow members are also very supportive and helpful. I've listened to the coaches as they instruct the youth class and couldn't be more impressed by their patience coupled with appropriate corrective discipline. A great atmosphere for all.

  • I hold a Black Belt in a previous martial art, but had not trained in 12 years. Getting back in to a martial art that was very different from what I had experienced before while being an overweight 45 years old, was concerning for me.

    I have attended Dojo Kyle Jiu-Jitsu for a couple of years now. Let me just say that I feel that I am part of something special. Will, Ryan and my fellow students are incredibly supportive, welcoming and motivated to help me improve every time I attend. I will say here, "Thank you all". I do my best to follow the examples you lead.
