“Good Training” . . . the phrase that accompanies the start of every roll at JSA is an understatement! I have been training with Matt Bryers and JSA for the past 3 months. Matt has an exceptional staff and training methodology that challenges you to be your best every time you enter JSA. His intense approach to training is tempered with a culture of respect and care for one another which he fosters. I have learned well beyond what I thought I could in the past 3 months (compared with the 6 months I invested at another CT school in the past). I can't say enough about the school - all I can do is recommend it to anyone looking for unbelievable Jiu-Jitsu experience!

As someone with no martial arts, boxing, wresting, etc. training I tried out a few different classes that JSA had to offer and was instantly attracted to the Kobukai classes. These classes are an excellent workout, for people of varying fitness levels. The self defense aspect is great, and I'm always shocked when class is over as it is so interesting/engaging that the time flies. I would recommend to anyone looking to switch up their fitness and learn some new techniques. I'd say the #1 thing that sets the Jiu-Jitsu and Strength Academy apart from other similar places is the people; both the trainers and the trainees. Everyone there has the mindset of improving not just themselves but also their training partners, creating a both friendly and motivating environment.

After searching for a Jiu Jitsu school in CT for weeks I finally decided to visit Jiu Jitsu and Strength Academy. At first I was a bit intimidated since I had no prior training. There is always that thought in the back of your head that you will be looked down upon since your the "new student". That is not the case here. From the very start everyone welcomed me and took their time to make me feel comfortable. It soon became clear to me that no matter what level you were, they encouraged you to do your best. It's now 6 months in and I'm training for my first tournament. Without Jiu Jitsu and Strength Acadamy, Matt and Formiga I wouldn't be where I am. It's more than a martial arts/self defense school; it's a place of encouragement to be the best that you can.

After relocating and changing jobs, I found myself looking for a new place to train. My experience was very limited, so I knew that I would essentially be starting from scratch. After taking trial classes at several area gyms, it was immediately apparent that this one was the perfect fit for me. Everyone here is very welcoming, friendly and respectful. Best of all, there are no egos and everyone is committed to helping their friends and training partners improve. Whether you are looking to learn a new art as a hobby, for competition or just general self-improvement, I can guarantee that you won't find a better school than the Jiu-Jitsu and Strength Academy.

In today's world where your ability to use some of your most basic, most primitive, yet most essential skills is often constrained, at least you've got Jits. For me, I find I'm most alive when I'm jumping out of an airplane or when someone is trying to choke me or break my arm and I have to defend it. And, it's great exercise. If it's for you too, the JSA is where it's at. Matt and Formiga (one of the best in the world) have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to walk the walk. And yet they're humble. If you're interested, I would highly recommend you come and visit.

Love the change from the mundane gym routine. I've been training at the JSA for two months now. For me, the group dynamic is the best part of working out there. During the circuit training workouts, everyone is giving their all and is being encouraged the whole time by the other participants. It really makes you intensify your workouts. Along with that, there is no feeling like you have to surpass what you can physically do. There are NO EGOS! The instructors and members are friendly, encouraging, and they kick your butt! Get to the the JSA!

Great place to train. The students and the instructors are helpful and approachable. I have been training in martial arts for over 25 years, at many gyms/dojos, and this place has the least amount of ego I have encountered. Matt is a welcoming business owner and a knowledgable excellent instructor. Formiga is top of the class in BJJ. The price is great (you can't beat $80.00 mo) and you are given plenty of time to check out the school to see if it is the right fit for you with no pressure. It is both sports (jiu jitsu) and real world street (ju-jitsu) martial arts training with plenty of rolling time on the mat. I wish I lived closer so I could continue to train there. William Sandoval
