This is a great place. The instructors are excellent, the people who have joined are clearly quality individuals, welcoming anyone at any level and a supportive enviornment. It's a great experience. Try it!
Wonderful place, has activities for our whole family and Jiujitsu has been a lifesaver for me.

The only place in KC area to train with a Mestre of Capoeira. Ninja is a fascinating teacher and a humble Champion of many martial arts. Training at Brazil Academy has been a real blessing! More...
Great place to learn the martial arts of Brazil...and More! The Ninja, as well as the other instructors, are passionate and committed to bringing the best in training to their students. I highly recommend this academy.
This place is amazing and family oriented!!! Everyone is welcome despite where they come from!! ♡♡♡
My husband and I have attended classes with Ninja for nearly a decade. We have made lifelong friends and soon our daughter will be attending as well. Learn Bjj from a world champion black belt and one of the hardest working person in the sport! More...
Amazing jiujitsu and great people! I am fortunate to call Ninja a friend and look forward to anytime I can train with him on the mats! Check it out!!

My home away from home. Gaurantee you will learn a lot and make some close friends.
Great safe fun environment for our children to learn and become great adults. So much martial arts to choose from. Awesome instructors with so much talent. The cafe is homey and friendly. Very glad to have found this Academy. My children love going to all the classes and I like I can get a few workouts in to. More...
Great atmosphere and super friendly. A place surrounded by great people with great dreams to achieve together.

The Academy has a great welcoming family atmosphere...a positive place to learn kids and adult jiu Jitsu. (and a burn out cardio class for adults) Ninja is not only a wonderful teacher but an encouraging role model. Overall, a great place to be!
I remember first moving to KC in 2005 and all of us training together at the KC police academy. Even then Ninja was helping others learn and sharing the arts. Now 10 years later we all are the next generation to continue sharing the knowledge. Ninja is world class, a accomplished competitor and a good friend. Must check out his academy! More...
I was visiting in town and came by here to get in a workout. All the staff and students welcomed me and were very hospitable. I highly recommend this place to everyone. Next time I am in town I plan to come back again. I also loved the Acai bar in the front. More...
Very welcoming and friendly academy. Was just like rolling at home.
Top notch! I am so impressed with the Brazil Academy! Our kids trained BJJ in TX when we moved to KS we looked at various schools for 7 months before we found Brazil Academy. The others do not even compare to the excellence of the Brazil Academy. From a parent who searched and searched for a good and quality place for our kids to take BJJ the Brazil Academy is it! Hands down! Oh and the adult cardio and Samba classes are great too! So grateful we found you guys! More...
Great family atmosphere. World class instruction. Ninja and his family are great people.
I've trained martial arts with Brazil Academy for many years and believe the environment and relationships you get here are second to none. Additionally, the instruction is excellent, as made evident by multiple Jiu Jitsu world champions and Capoeira instructors that have come out of these mats! Come visit and see for yourself the thrilling kids classes, intense cardio-workout sessions, outstanding adult classes and teams, and grab a delicious and healthy snack from the Cafe Brazil, right in the lobby! More...
The Brazil Academy was and will always be my home school. I was so scared starting Jiu jitsu there but they welcomed me with open arms and showed me a beautiful path that i still follow today. I recommend anyone, young or old, big, small, man and woman to come and join the BA family. Oss!! Cant wait to see you all again soon. More...
Ninja's school is amazing, filled with great people. It has an amazing changing room and shower area, complete with stocked towels if you forget yours. I have always felt very welcome there, and would recommend it to anyone in the area. More...
Great facility. Wide range of classes. Everyone makes you feel at home from the moment you sign up for your week trial.
My fiancé and I (37 & 35) both attend daily.
Ninja is great with kids too. Both my kiddos are excited to attend their classes (4 & 11 yrs).
BJJ is already pulling pounds off of me and I'm having a blast while we do it. More...

I leave in Iowa and always that I can I come here to visit my friends, to Have good time, to train hard and have amazing food!!!!
The thing that sticks out most: attention to detail in every aspect of this facility. One of the cleanest training environments you'll ever find. Even the details of the locker room, down to the stylish shower heads, are tasteful, functional and ridiculously tidy. Brazil Academy boasts the best schedule I've encountered in a martial arts facility. I can't conceive of a work or life schedule that would prevent a person from consistently attending at least 3 days a week. As far as instruction, that attention to detail is again evident. Classes are structured, productive and cooperative. I speak as a person who lacks a lot of the natural talents that make for great grapplers, but every single session I walk out just a little better and with a better concept of the techniques instructed and drilled. Finally, price. I'll just put plainly: for what Brazil Academy provides, the rates are a bargain. Basically within the normal range for martial arts/physical fitness facilities but with all those added benefits that come from very thoughtful, efficient and intelligent planning. Highest possible recommendation. More...
The facility is top notch. The instructors are genuine and very good at teaching. They take the time to make sure you understand the details. One of the best things about the school is the schedule. They have early morning, noon, and evening classes. Very blessed to have found the Academy. More...
I've been a part of the Brazil Academy family for about 5 years. I refer to it as a family, because that's what it is. It starts at the top Ninja and his family and his warmth and openness radiates out to everyone who comes into the door, spreads to others in the organization, creating that family atmosphere. There is a strong desire to teach and see people improve from top to bottom. That philosophy along with the friendliness makes it an ideal place for someone who might feel intimidated by taking on a new endeavor, especially one in martial arts and fitness The instruction is top notch, and whether your goal is to improve your fitness,learn effective self defense, compete, or make new friends and improve your confidence you will find it here.Lastly, the facilities are always clean and inviting, with lots of accessible parking.

The brazil Academy are amazing teams I have and we have the best instructors and staff there Academy. We have a lot of fun training Capoeira and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu so we need to get new people to try out different classes that why we have friendly people at the academy. I would say. Brazil Academy 10/10 is good. More...
Brazil academy is the best place to learn jiu-jítsu and capoeira in KC. They have great people working there, the environment is great for all ages.
Passionate BJJ & Muay Thai coaches in a newly renovated facility. Brazil Academy promotes a family atmosphere and supports all individuals whether competition minded or looking for a good workout. We have belonged to the academy for almost 5 years. If you want to train in Kansas City, this is the place to be. More...
Training at Brazil Academy was one of the best experiences of my life. The community is so strong and the teachers are great. I learned Capoeira and Jiujitsu and Muay Thai and loved every second of it. I cant recommend this place enough! More...
Dropped in for a Saturday class while passing through and left very impressed. Fantastic facilities with a Muay Thai room, a BJJ room, a Capoeira studio, and I was even able to finish with an Acai Bowl afterwards in their nice little cafe area! There was a large locker room with modern lockers and 3 showers. I was warmly welcomed and not even charged a drop in fee. The noon class was paced great and I learned two new techniques from the brown belt teaching on passing leg lasso. Everyone I met was top notch in everything I look for: friendliness, etiquette, technique, and cleanliness. More...
I've been training BJJ for many years. I was visiting Kansas City and trained at Brazil Academy several times. Ninja and his crew were very welcoming and generous. Their facility is top-notch. There was plenty of mat space, a beautiful cafe serving Brazilian coffee and goodies, and a newly added locker room with several showers. I'll definitely visit again any time I'm in town! More...
This place is perfection. Everyone is so friendly here and the instructors are very professional.
This is the place to go if you want to train capoeira or jiu jitsu. They also have snacks.
My children attend this school. The owners are wonderful. Ninja is a world class instructor! If you want to study capoiera and jujitsu then this is the place to go :-)
