  •   Great place to challenge yourself mentally and physically love the people I have met over the years and always welcoming the new comers and get them to work hard and push them out of their comfort zone

  •   No question. 5 stars! This is a world class gym with great people! Jeff takes a lead role in running his business and doesn't pawn off responsibility. I learned a lot and had one of the hardest work outs I've had in a long time. Very fair pricing and wide open scheduling. Recommended and highly!

  •   I would recommend that anyone who is even remotely interested in MMA and has a good attitude sign up at Joslin's now and just try it out. The encouragement I receive each day, along with the self-confidence of knowing I can defend myself has really made my life better. My day is just not the same unless I've hit the mats and learned something new. Everyone there is awesome and always willing to help you learn and grow. I look forward to the next class more and more every time I go and am in the best shape of my life thanks to training at Joslin's!

  •   I found Jeff Joslin to be extremely knowledgeable and passionate. He has a special patience and a gift for teaching and encouraging all students. The other instructors also share his genuine desire to help the students learn and git fit. I've found the members to be very friendly and always encouraging as we learn and practice together. The all around fitness obtained from attending regular classes is amazing.

  •   I have my boys at Joslin's for over 3 years and I can see how much confidence they have gained. Watching them giving their best at the dojo or the tournament has inspired me and therefore joined Jeff's BJJ class last year. It's almost like my second home and the camaraderie is just great. The classes are always interesting and sensies are always encouraging me to give my very best and learn something new.

  •   Awesome gym with an amazing coach. The members are welcoming and everyone is there to help each other improve performance and fitness. As a female training jiu jitsu, I encourage other women who have been thinking about martial arts to come and try a class at Joslins.
