Nicholas M. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I’ve been a part of 5 MMA gyms throughout my life starting since 11th grade, and Select Jiu Jitsu will always be home for me I’ve decided. The men and women of this gym genuinely love mixed martial arts and teaching, and they are there for any member of the team.

Jmn. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I don’t usually do reviews unless I feel they really are warranted. This is by far the best place to train in the Waco area. I have had my kids in Jiu Jitsu class from Okinawa, Japan to Arcadia, California and now here in Waco.
