Our Mission

The mission that we strive to achieve at SMAA  is to build the weak into the strong through training in a fun and positive atmosphere.  Lot’s of people say that you can not teach “heart”.   At SMAA we believe just the opposite and love working with “average” people. We pride ourselves in our ability to take the extremely self-conscious, non-athletic and building that person into a champion in their own life.   

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Discover the amazing mental and physical benefits you can get from training in this incredible martial art!  In our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes you will learn how to not only defend yourself, but to be the best version of yourself possible by the trials and tribulations on the mat.  These classes are in the Gi!

NOGI Submission Wrestling

Because we’re not always going to be wearing a gi!  Come to one of our NOGI classes and experience the difference of grips and a little faster pace.  You’ll definitely want to dabble into both Gi and NOGI to be a more well rounded practitioner.

SMAA Kids

Bullyproof your children!  Don’t deny them their right to defend themselves and to have unshakable confidence!  Just like traditional martial arts, we instill the great morals and values, only with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, they are faced with a more practical situation!  You and your children will not be disappointed!

Testimonials

“I’ve just started my Jiu Jitsu journey, but I don’t think I could have picked a better place to start.  Great Coach, plenty of equipment, and a wonderful group of people that are willing to help an excited newcomer learn the ropes.  If you are thinking about learning Jiu Jitsu or if you are just looking to get in good shape, I can’t recommend this gym enough.”

Steven Abney

“We have been training as a family of 4 for a little over 6 months now under Coach Wayne’s instruction.  I can honestly say that it is the best decision we have made as parents for our boys as well as an investment in ourselves as adults.  Coach Wayne has a love and passion for Jiu Jitsu that shines every time he steps on the mat.  He loves his students and is invested in our lives and achievements.  My kids love being there as much as we do and have chosen to continue Jiu Jitsu over other sports and activities.  Jiu Jitsu has changed our lives for the better and we have Coach Wayne to thank for that.  We love our home away from home!  If you are looking for an amazing atmosphere to train, along with someone who lives and breathes Jiu Jitsu, you need to come and visit SMAA.
