  •   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 signed up as a member approximately 7 years ago now and have never looked back. As a member, it is hard not to feel part of a strong loyal family unit. Strength was found in mind, body and spirit on the mats, transcending into daily life. The Joslins team is supportive, the quality of instruction is superior and words can not fully portray how grateful i am to be part of such an amazing community.
