“Phenomenal learning environment regardless of skill or experience. Every class is structured, methodical, and focuses on learning the proper techniques. Wide range of skill levels so everyone fits in and gets good work. Instructors, whether professor Wayne or otherwise, are great at conveying technical instructions in reference to the learning material of a class or a technique/position a student may be having difficulty with.”

“This place has been truly life-changing for my son. The coaches are great and really care what’s going in in your child’s life. Great family atmosphere with plenty of ways for anyone to grow as an individual at any age. rather in jujitsu, weight loss, or just a place to unwind. If you want a place where you can just be you while working on your self or to boost child self esteem Check them out.”

“Wayne Knudsen is a top-notch instructor and goes out of his way to create a space that is fun, challenging, and accessible no matter whether you’re a beginner or advanced Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. SMAA has a unique family camaraderie that you won’t find at other gyms. Joining the Soul Fighters crew was the best decision I ever made.”
