Joel Neely’s Tiger-Rock Martial Arts Academy
I have studied Taekwondo and other Korean and Japanese martial arts for over 40 years and have been professionally teaching them for over 35 years. I began training in October 1981 in Gulfport, Mississippi under Master Don Swift. After earning my 1st Degree Black Belt in June of 1984 I began teaching in his school in Gulfport. In May of 1985 I moved to Baton Rouge and opened my own school. I have worked hard to develop a significant presence in the Baton Rouge area and have trained thousands of students in the art of Taekwondo. I have watched thousands of youngsters develop confidence and real leadership skills at my academy and throughout the Tiger Rock community. I have been rewarded by hundreds of adults who have lost weight, gained confidence and learned self-defense skills. I have enjoyed the success that comes from hard work and dedication to principles. I look forward to continuing my Taekwondo training and teaching for many years.

This is the best martial arts school in the area. The instructors care when teaching young kids and are all enthusiastic. It’s a very personal experience. We love it here.

Bring my 6 years old son here for summer session and he love it here, the instructor seem to work really well with kids, I can also see drastic different in discipline in kids within a week or two. Not easy task for twenty to thirty 4 to 6 years old kids

Great for kids and and adults. The instructor is great with children, teaching them to be respectful, confident, and kind while also teaching self defense and life lessons.
Excellent training. My daughter goes here and Mr Darron and the other instructors are incredible. What’s great is it’s not just martial arts training it’s also structured so the kids understand discipline and focus and sticking with something until you get better. Very happy we chose this place over anywhere else in baton rouge

“JM Modern is staffed with an incredibly knowledgeable and family friendly staff.”
“A great place to train full of great people that will become family!”
“Great environment, great facility, and great coaches.”
JM Modern is absolutely fantastic. I started bjj about a year ago and have been super happy with the great professors and help from my fellow students in learning the sport. Absolutely would and have recommended this place to folks who want to learn self defense, get some exercise, or just straight up want to go toe to toe for friendly competition! 10/10, 5 stars!!
My wife and I travel for work, and are temporary residents at each location. We stay up to 6 months, but could leave as early as 8 weeks.I’m always on the hunt for the best quality Jiu Jitsu gyms but more specifically, the ones I will learn the most from.My research starts with asking my current Professor or coaches which gym they’d prefer going to, ( most of the time they follow the lineage and aim from there). Then, I ask the BJJ community which gyms they’ve been too or frequently go to in the area, and I find out who the instructors and google/ YouTube to see their accomplishments, matches, etc. After all is said and done, I take a free trial class to immerse myself in the action. If they don’t treat me like a potential sale, GOLD STAR. I check the cleanliness of the gym, if it’s to my standards or better, GOLD STAR. Then, me being me, I ask a lot of questions my first day, and try to shake hands with the higher ranks and just be myself, and if majority of everyone is friendly and smiles, another GOLD STAR.
At the point that all of these steps are taken in the order I listed them and I see no red flags, I will gladly spend whatever it takes to be a member at the gym!
JM MODERN IS THAT GYM IN THE BATON ROUGE AREA! HIGHLY RECOMMEND, EVEN IF ITS JUST TO STOP IN FOR A CLASS OR TWO. DONT LEAVE LOUISIANA WITHOUT STOPPING HERE FIRST!
Great gym. Unfortunately, the owner, Josh Mancuso, has the sophistication of amoebas. Must be nice having a brain so exceptionally smooth it just rolls around in your head like a ball bearing.

“Great gym & facilities, but even better people & instructors.”
“Very friendly atmosphere and a great place to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.”
“The kids class teaches your child Jiu Jitsu in a fun atmosphere.”
My grandson attends here and he really enjoys the instructors and he has met more friends. The instructors really keep the kids focused on what is being taught. The whole staff is great 😊
As a homeschool mom of an ASD boy with inattentive ADHD, it is hard to find physical activities that keep his attention and keep him active. . After basketball, baseball, and flag football… And various other extracurriculars … He is excited and ASKS to go to classes with his coaches!! Sad truth of the matter is, there are bad people in the world that could easily take advantage of him. I am so glad I took the risk in signing him up for Jiu Jitsu. I honestly didn’t know if he would take to the physicality. Coaches are all patient with him… Even when his attention wanes.
Awesome owners and very family friendly! Coach Chef and Coach Piper advocate to their students and develop them in their own unique way! Would highly recommend if your looking for a jiu-jitsu gym for your child!
