I have been working with JJ for about 1 year and 5 months. Great working environment... JJ has helped me lose so much weight and I’ve learned proper workout techniques in this journey. I maxed out at 240 pounds, but today I weight 205 and still Iosing. I would highly recommend sparta academy for anyone looking to pursue a healthy lifestyle. My martial arts has improved tremendously too. JJ is a good trainer on both cross training and martial arts. JJ teaches Brazilian jiu jitsu, Krav Maga, and Muay Thai for martial arts. JJ would encourage you to come to class as many times you can to see results and improvements. If you ever need to lose weight or learn martial arts, then JJ is the man!

Margo has a lot of passion for martial arts and it comes out in his training sessions. After only a few sessions I saw improvement in my form and confidence. I would recommend this to anyone regardless of their experience level.

I'm enjoying learning Johnny's combination of Krav Maga and other forms of martial arts. He's patient, great at explaining the mechanics behind moves, and offers me options when one move proves difficult. If you work with him one on one, he custom designs the training and pacing for your needs. I'm not looking to compete, just protect myself and family when I travel. So with Johnny, I got up and running quickly with basic moves on day one. You won't spend weeks learning ornate movements as you might in other martial arts. You'll learn how to end a conflict as quickly as possible, from day one. Highly recommended.

Great martial arts and fitness gym for any age or experience. From the athletes who want to push themselves further and compete in mixed martial arts, to the ones who just want to set a health goal and smash it, and for those who just want to learn some self defense. Great coaches and friendly environment with other members.

Jorge is an exceptional trainer, teacher, coach, and motivator. He teaches me boxing and various forms of martial arts and each day that I work with him I learn so much -- about myself, about the craft, about Jorge's skills, and Jorge's abilities and patience as a teacher. I can feel myself making progress after every session with Jorge. His ability to break down movements and describe how they all fit together is incredible. He weaves in breath work, ancient wisdom, and practical skill application into every lesson. He positively challenges you to do your best each time, and his fabulous attitude and cheerfulness is contagious. I can't recommend him highly enough! You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with Jorge!

Just want to give a review on Sensei Brian Hall I've had the pleasure of working Sensei Brian over the last couple of years. Sensei Hall is a very patient knowledgeable instructor with fantastic skills His mastery of martial arts coupled with a thorough understanding of nerve structure coupled with commonsense body mechanics is second to none. He practices the proper amount of control yet thoroughly demonstrates techniques. I wish him the best of luck in his new venture in California He's definitely missed here in the Northeast Jim McMahon Nidan Black Belt Excel Martial arts Norwood Massachusetts

Master Bob is an amazing resource with a vast knowledge base. I have been studying with him for over six years and feel like I have just begun to tap the available knowledge he has. I have been studying martial arts for 34 years and have had many instructors, few of whom match Master Bob’s skill set.

Sensei Ali Jafari is an extremely experienced and creative instructor who continually teaches the "art" in martial arts with great patience and respect for students of all ages and abilities. In my 13 years of martial arts training with Sensei Jafari, I have always appreciated the sense of community spirit he fosters in our dojo. Through our training, we as students learn from each other and support each other in our efforts to reach our goals - whether it be to get in shape mentally and physically, achieve more balance in life, or simply to become a better human being.

I have been a student of Sparta Academy for several months now (nearly a year) and could not be happier with my experience. I have attended their cross training classes consistently and have experienced remarkable results physically as I am constantly encouraged to push myself further than I thought myself capable while being held accountable for doing every move correctly and never putting myself in a position to sustain injury. Beyond this though, I cannot speak highly enough about my experience in their martial arts classes and in particular, through personal training with Kiara in Krav Maga. She is professional, encouraging, but also demands the best out of her students in every way. She has helped me to perfect my technique, improve on my skills, and gain a newfound confidence through a sport I was hesitant to even begin. I have been told I look taller, leaner, and carry a more pronounced confidence in myself through my experiences here. The community of students and instructors is highly encouraging and always challenging you to push your limits and give your best effort. I would highly recommend any of the classes and instructors/coaches at Sparta Academy.

    I am passionate about teaching and about the material I am teaching. I also have flexible hours and offer fairer prices than most other instructors as I put teaching and developing a positive group of students over profit.

    About
