Great training. Lane really takes his time and makes sure you fundamentally understand everything. Great sparring partners and a great environment for everyone from beginners to people who have been training for years.
We love South Tampa Jiu-Jitsu & MMA. The entire staff is kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our girls started attending classes in February 2022 and they’ve learned so much from their coaches that have not only helped on the mats but in their personal life. They’ve learned how to be more patient, understanding, and have better problem-solving skills.
We highly recommend South Tampa Jiu-Jitsu & MMA to any and everyone looking to challenge themselves while having a great time.
So happy we found this place! We’ve taken our kids (5 and 😎 to a couple of Katate classes in Tampa and this one is BY FAR the best. The instructors are patient and kind to the kids. They are actually teaching them (it’s not just a zoo of kids running a muck and “earning” stripes and stickers). I’ve been so impressed with all of the instructors. The facility is clean and the staff is always friendly. Awesome place!
Lane and John are awesome guys. The people that train there are great and very kind. Very welcoming environment
Great environment, great coaches! 🤙
Lane and his staff are professional and care about their students. I highly recommend them!
A family-oriented group of the finest people I've ever met with an incredible arsenal of knowledge and positivity. 5 stars are not enough!!
