I've been doing martial arts since I was 7 and stopped as a teenager. I decided to start again but I very much wanted to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I've been training here at Soul Fighters for a little over two months and I'm starting to learn that although it is a martial art, it is truly a way of life. I have fallen in love with it and love my Soul Fighters family. The instructors are incredible and it is an amazing learning experience

I first began training at Soul Fighters two years ago. At the time, I had been training for 5 years and found myself stuck in a slump. After watching Formiga win multiple championships and titles, I decided to make the 50+ mile trek from NY on a daily basis. Here I am two years later and my Jiu Jitsu has evolved so much, I continue to learn on a daily basis. The environment is phenomenal. Everyone is very welcoming and the gym is immaculate! Whether a hobbyist or a serious competitor you'll fit in at Soul Fighters. I highly recommend stopping by
