Our goal at the JSA is provide you with everything you need to learn and excel at jiu-jitsu, learn how to fight and get stronger & in-shape. 

The JSA is 4,700 sq/f facilty featuring a martial arts training area, our strength gym and our fitness room. We offer classes 7-days week that include Combat Ju-Jitsu (Kobukai), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Strength Athletics and TRX Fusion Classes

The JSA was founded by me, Matt Bryers, a jiu-jitsu instructor, jiu-jitsu student, strongman training instructor, competitor and someone who has a strong desire to work with others and help them improve their lives physically and mentally.

My goal of the JSA was to create an environment that I wanted to train in and be a part of. I wanted to create a school where anyone could enjoy and learn jiu-jitsu and discover the amazing benefits of physical activity.

We’re invested in your training

One of the biggest benefits to training at the JSA is that you’re NOT just a number. We’re not a huge facility (about 4,700 square feet); but we are dedicated to every single client and student that trains at the JSA.

Your goals, training and progress as a Jiu-Jitsu student or a fitness client is important to us.

Respect for Everyone

One of the biggest lessons I have learned over the years through my teachers, family and training partners is that RESPECT is paramount.  You need to respect your teachers to learn the most out of the lesson.  You need to respect your family to have their support in your training endeavors.  And, you need to respect your training partners in order to have their encouragement and support throughout the training.

I tell every new student that walks in the door that this is an environment that will provide you the best training because we treat each other and the school with respect.

I believe this helps others understand the fact that when they come to train at the JSA, they don’t have to worry about any other BS.  Everyone there – from the instructors to the students are there to work hard and support others.

One of the biggest benefits to training at the JSA is that you’re NOT just a number. At the JSA you become an intricate part of the school immediately. Our philosophy is that we need to help every student grow and reach their goals. We accomplish this by working personally with you. Whether it’s on the mat or in the gym, you are an individual who all of our instructors make it their personal mission to see you improve.
