    They are very family oriented, very professional, no pressure (you can go on your own pace!) Get place for training. We learn a lot.. wouldn't change them for anything!!!

    Dave and Melissa are awesome coaches! I had been training in BJJ at another gym for a year and in the one month I've been at Dark Wolf, I feel like I've learned WAY more than I did in the 1 year before.

    I have trained here nearly 3 years. I love the legitimate instruction, the manner in which we are taught, the passion instructors have for the sport, the cleanliness, the one on one coaching, the diverse schedule, the fact I have not signed a single contract and the comradery. I could go on and on. I also appreciate how any concerns, or questions are addressed promptly. Top notch training by top tier instructors.
