From our community

BJJ has given me a lot of confidence and another goals to achieve. I used to be afraid of guys who were bigger and stronger than me. But, training bjj at Select turned me into a man who doesn’t fear anyone in this world.



Joshua O. proud member of Select Jiu Jitsu Academy

I’m an introvert, but everyone made me feel very welcome which really eased the anxiety on my end. I keep coming back and bringing my family because I feel the instruction is top notch, and everyone is made to feel welcome.

The striking classes are great for relieveing stress, losing weight, increasing flexibility, and building confidence. Out of all these, building confidence has been the most benificial. Coach Luis pushed me passed my comfort zone and forced me to conquer my fears
