What Our Members Are Saying

Top notch!

My daughter takes both boxing and MMA at LBBA… saying that they are awesome is such an understatement.

All of her instructors have been supportive all the while motivating and challenging her to push harder. I am super thankful for all of her instructors and the other staff members here. Top notch!

My son needed something to do

My son needed something to do, I never pushed hard in sports, did not want him growing up thinking sports was most important in life.

The instructors are very dedicated to the art Of Ju Jitsu and teaching the kids how to apply it to life. Not only is he learning to defend himself, he is also gaining confidence. He is now part of a family of like minded boys, girls, Ladies and Men. It’s more than just learning a skill, it’s belonging to a family.

LBBA is is great place full of Love and Skill…that any child are grown up could be apart of.

I've never regretted walking through these doors

“You can’t change where you started, but you can change the direction you are going. It’s not what you are going to do, but it’s what you are doing now that counts.” – Napoleon Hill.

Everyone who has walked in the doors of this academy has come with the sole idea of bettering themselves in one way or another. I’ve never regretted walking through these doors.

One Day Your Life May Depend On It!

Camaraderie amongst all different walks of life, great way to lose a little weight, very encouraging no matter the experience level (novice, hobbyist, or even a true fighter/competitor), and most importantly you are not only using your body.

Every time you go there you learn something new, period. Everything you learn can be useful. One day your life may depend on it.
