Elevate Judo & Jiu-Jitsu

Review №1

I have trained Jiu Jitsu across the country and around the world, for the past 15 years. I received a recommendation to train at Elevate from an old training partner from Japan and was beyond impressed with my training experience during my time on the mats at Elevate.The environment was highly competitive without being aggressive, or uncomfortable, and was relevant to all skill levels. Everyone there was extremely welcoming, full of positive energy, and there were no cliques like you find with many other schools that train at a high level.Brett, the primary sensei for groundwork, has a unique perspective on the grappling arts that results in an outstanding level of instruction. I might attempt to describe his style as Judo Newaza blended heavily with both modern and fundamental Jiu Jitsu, as well as wrestling. His effectiveness as a teacher really shows in his students as they are TOUGH.Every time I stepped on the mats at Elevate was a positive experience. I always got a great workout, solid instruction, and technical exchanges on the tatami. If you are looking for high level instruction, great training partners, and good vibes, head to Elevate.

As a black belt in BJJ and Karate, with over 25 years of experience in MMA and grappling, I can highly recommend Elevate to any martial artist. The instructors are knowledgeable and technical about both the standing and ground game, providing tailored instruction in Judo and Jiu Jitsu that can help anyone, literally, ELEVATE their game. The atmosphere is welcoming and ego free, focused on improvement at any level. If you are a beginner, interested in self defense, or are a veteran looking for hard rolls and advanced competitive techniques,, this dojo has something for you. The owners are invested in their students’ success, and focused on their individual strengths and abilities. The specialized attention you receive at Elevate adds value beyond what I have experienced at many other dojos. Additionally the facility is spacious, exceptionally clean, and offers gear and products that support their athletes’ development. I cannot give a higher recommendation. I left with a smile every time I trained here. Enjoy!

I’ve trained in several different countries and states with this club being the most clean. The quality of the training offered here is the best I’ve seen. The culture is welcoming and encourages growth.

Review №5

I couldn’t ask for a better martial arts experience for my family. Elevate offers classes focused on both Judo and BJJ, in a clean, spacious, and modern gym, for both kids and adults. If you are unfamiliar, they’re both basically fancy wrestling in pajamas, are tons of fun, a great work out, and don’t involve getting punched and kicked. The instructors are friendly and welcoming to all types, from old guys like me who need to get in shape, to folks who drive over from the Navy base, to the URI Judo club students, to young kids. My daughter and I have been at it for 2-1/2 years here and are still happy every time we walk through the door. Come on down and join us.

Warm, welcoming community and incredible expert instruction. The ratio of female students at Elevate speaks volumes about the caliber of the people and the positive, respectful, sportsmanlike culture fostered there. Come for the great classes, stay for the amazing team.

My five year old son and I have been members for four months. Elevate is a great place with an awesome community. Everyone here has been very welcoming. The jiu-Jitsu here is very good and the head coach does a great job teaching. I’m psyched to be part of this community.

I can describe my experience at Elevate in two words: life changing. The classes are both physically challenging and mentally stimulating, combining to create a very rewarding endeavor. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the coaches are patient, motivating and exceptionally knowledgeable. I wholeheartedly recommend Elevate to anyone seeking a fulfilling way to exercise, learn how to defend yourself, or simply have fun!

Walking in the door you immediately feel a sense of community. Students (children and adults) are engaged with one another in pleasant conversations as they get ready for practice. The drilling atmosphere is very unique and lends itself to be a type of casual intensity. The instructors are highly knowledgeable and have a gift for teaching.I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to learn Judo or BJJ
