My son has been coming to this school for almost a year now, and he really feels that he is in the right place with the right team. The coaches, and administration are excellent. My son is looking forward to compete, and thanks to the training he gets he has the confidence to participate at world class level jiu jitsu.

I signed my 8 year old son up for classes here and he absolutely loves it. It’s a great way for him to get exercise, learn self defense skills, and learn how to better interact with other kids with confidence. It was such a great experience for him that it inspired me to join as well. We are both so very excited to come to class.

My seven year old son has been a student at MCBJJ for nearly a year now and in that time he has grown not only in jiu-jitsu, but also in respect, dedication and self-esteem. Coach Mike and Professor Josh are fantastic instructors, helping the kids not only with skills on the mat, but also helping reinforce skills that help them off the mat.

Whatever you are searching for you will find it here. I initially joined because I was looking for a home away from home. I got way more then I had ever hoped for. Professor Cruz, his instructors, and the students have all helped rebuild my confidence, self esteem, and gave me the tools needed to focus on what truly matters in my life. It’s an amazingly friendly environment with great instruction. Just like a loving family with amazing parents. I strongly encourage signing up.

My wife and I took my three year old son to the Carrollwood academy yesterday evening. The instructors were AMAZING. It is next to impossible to get my son to focus on just one thing. However, with the friendly, fun and patient environment the staff puts on Caleb (my son) couldn't get enough of it! We signed him up right after class and now I think I will be bringing my niece. I wish there was an option for 10 stars!

you will grow with every class!

Muay Thai combines the discipline and focus of martial arts with an intense, body-toning workout that can help you lose weight, improve your cardiovascular health, and minimize your stress and anxiety.

Get the Results You Want from Your Workouts

We all have times when we fall into a workout rut. We go to the gym, but we aren’t getting the same results we used to see.

One problem may be that you’re doing a workout that doesn’t challenge your entire body. Muay Thai workouts require students to use every major muscle group – and that means it delivers a great workout every time.

In addition to providing an intense workout, Muay Thai builds muscles and tones your entire body. It’s the workout you’ve been looking for.

Muay Thai Burn Calories and Fat

The secret to losing weight is finding a way to burn more calories each day than you take in. For most people, that means getting regular exercise to burn some of what they eat.

A single Muay Thai workout can burn as much as a thousand calories. That means that your body will easily burn more calories than you take in, leading to a net loss of weight.

And, Muay Thai increases muscle mass. Since muscle burns more calories than fat does, regular Muay Thai workouts can boost your metabolism, making it easy to lose weight.

Maintain Flexibility and Strength As You Age

TAs people age, they tend to lose flexibility in their joints and may find that they lose strength as well. Experiencing a physical decline can limit your ability to do the things you love.

People who practice Muay Thai reinforce their body’s strength and flexibility with each workout. By emphasizing core strength and overall fitness, Muay Thai can help you combat the aging process.

Just as importantly, Muay Thai is a low impact workout that uses your body’s weight to tone your muscles. People of all fitness levels and ages can benefit from Muay Thai.

Muay Thai Banishes Stress and Anxiety

Stress is a part of modern life. It can have a negative impact on your physical, emotional, and mental health if you don’t find ways to minimize it.

Working out regularly releases feel-good hormones called endorphins. Muay Thai workouts will help you maintain the proper hormonal balance so you can cope with stress as it arises.

At the same time, Muay Thai can also make you feel better about yourself and your body, which contributes to good mental health and makes it less likely that stress will affect you.
