My wife, 7 year old son and I have been training here for almost one year and we could not have found a better place! Prior to joining we had no experience in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and to be honest, we were a little intimidated. Professor Regis and the more experienced members changed that immediately and made us feel welcome. If you are serious about learning the most efficient martial art out there and want to get in great shape at a gym that treats you like family then this is the place!
I have been training Brazilain Jiu Jitsu for many years and at many places up and down the East Coast of the US and this is one of the best!
I was looking for something different to do and learn as far as working out and I found this place. I have never trained martial arts and I thought this might be fun. BJJ is more than fun, it's a lifestyle and to learn from a high level black belt like Professor Calixto is incredible.
I have trained different forms of martial arts in Californa and Florida and when I found this place I was impressed at the level of instruction by Professor Regis Calixto. The atmosphere was very welcome but at the same time competitive with each student pushing each other to preform at a high level.I strongly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get in shape and learn an effective martial art.
I have been training at Ralph Gracie here in Port Orange for over one year and this place is amazing. Awesome instructor in Regis Calixto who crates an incredible atmosphere to train in. I was a complete beginner and new to Jiu Jitsu and although I still have much to learn, I am much more confident in my skills and ability to defend myself in real life situations.
I have trained and competed in Taekwondo for over 20 years and stopped due to burn-out. Took a bunch of years off and then decided I wanted to learn a new martial art. I found this place and was hooked on day one! Professor Calixto is a fantastic teacher and everyone who trains here is very friendly. The cardio workout you get here is intense and I haven't felt this good in years.I highly recommend Ralph Gracie Florida!
