If you’ve already given some thought to joining a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or Mixed Martial Arts program (and you should), the next question is where to do it.
The gym you choose to train in has everything to do with your success.
So, in a departure from our usual content, today we’re going to see what students have to say about Rhode Island’s Black Diamond Mixed Martial Arts Academy.
From the Students’ Own Mouths
You know the major advantages of training in martial arts – most obviously, the benefits to your strength, coordination, and fitness. But there are so many other perks to training that the best way to highlight them is to let real Rhode Island students describe the features that make their experience at BDMMA rewarding for each of them.
Let’s start with Chris Harris, longtime veteran of the Black Diamond BJJ and MMA programs. Check out his testimonial:
What keeps Chris coming back time and time again? Well…
- The positive, helpful attitude of his teammates, and the support they provide,
- Learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from the best teachers in Rhode Island, and
- A fitness regimen that’s adaptable for everyone from first timers to seasoned pros
Pretty promising. Let’s have another perspective, shall we? Meet Brian Krafton, the toughest man working at DuPont. At BDMMA, Brian not only gets a great training routine, but he also gets to share it with his son, Austin:
As a former wrestler, Brian already has fighting experience under his belt, but, nearing 47, he realized it was time to get back into fighting shape. Like Chris, Brian emphasizes the camaraderie that defines the class atmosphere. And, again like Chris, Brian notes how much he appreciates the instructors’ sensitivity to the diverse motivations students have for coming to train. He summarizes,
Anyone that’s interested in Mixed Martial Arts, I couldn’t recommend a better place to give it a shot.
Let’s look at one more review, this time from Ben Burdick, Black Diamond’s Student of the Month back in May.
Ben’s attending CCRI for law enforcement. How does he prepare for such a demanding career? At Black Diamond, of course, where he stays in shape while honing his self-defense skills.
If you listen closely, you’ll notice a theme emerging. What BDMMA has on offer is expert instructors, a supportive team environment, and a set of programs designed to cater to just about every age and fitness level.
So, take it from these guys – if you’re a resident of Little Rhody and you’re the least bit curious about self defense, MMA, or BJJ, you owe it to yourself to check out that 30 day free trial. We’ll see you on the mats.
