Excellent instruction!! I have been attending classes with prof. Hughes for several months now- The classes are challenging and fun. The instruction is top notch and is broken down into easy to understand segments for slower people such as myself. The atmosphere is awesome!! Everyone here has been so helpful and friendly- they make you feel like you are part of their jiu jitsu family. There are no egos here- only friends that want to help you reach your goals- I cant recommend this place enough! More...

Mark Hughes is a wonderful instructor in the fine art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The gym is clean, its cozy, and everyone is very welcoming. I appreciate having class every night as well, that's very nice. Overall, excellent training quality, a very comfortable gym to train in, and a wonderful experience every time I show up to class. If you're thinking about joining BJJ, you should definitley stop by More...

I've trained under Mark before at Team Quest and have trained at Hughes Grappling Academy. We both have the same black belt professor. Mark is an excellent Brazilian Jiu jitsu professor for several reasons. Mark will take the time to understand the needs and learning curve of each individual student and will make your journey not only beneficial but FUN! Mark has a great sense of humor but is serious when he needs to be, you will get out of Marks coaching what you put into it. Hughes Grappling Academy offers something only found in a select few schools. A Jiu Jitsu professor who can help kids learn an effective martial art, how to address bulling, help an old guy like me improve his game or a younger practitioner succeed at the competition level. I would say that what I know about Mark and his lineage, experience and expertise he offers the highest level of coaching within a 500-mile radius. More...

Honest straight forward month to month fee with no contract, tiered plan or hidden fees. Sound jiu jitsu with personalized approach based on your attributes and skill set. Lots of drilling and plenty of mat time. More...

Professor Mark brings many years of experience to his school and is an excellent teacher. He teaches sound jiu-jitsu, expects a lot from his students, and will roll with anyone! Great atmosphere and value.

We have kids bjj classes 4 nights a week and adult bjj classes 5 nights a week. We have cardio bag fitness classes and provide person training group or individual sessions.

There is no secret. Every person is different with different needs. Consistency and diet are the two key components to achieving fitness goals.

We love sharing our love of bjj with everyone and helping each individual with the tools they need to succeed in reaching their goals

We tried other places in the area for several years and saw need that we could fulfill.

We are a family! We provide a family friendly environment where you can be yourself and fit in. And we provide the best jiu jitsu instruction in the valley!
