“Great place to train BJJ, excellent instructors and relaxed atmosphere.”
“All of the staff and coaches are great!”
“Great people, top of the line instruction, big, airy & well-kept facilities.”
Great instruction. Helpful upper belts. My son loves the kids classes.
My two kids just finished their 6 week trial and loved it. Professor Tylor and Coach Maddy do an absolutely great job with the kids. Very patient and show a great deal of enthusiasm when coaching. The classes are great and fun for the kids.
Absolutely recommended! Very knowledgeable and great with kids. We had a great experience and if you’re looking for a place to learn martial arts this is it!
Best Martial Arts Institute
Known simply as “The Dojo” when it first opened in downtown Eugene in 1988, Best Martial Arts Institute has since established itself as a respected part of the Eugene/Springfield, Oregon community. Under the guidance of Shihan Alan Best, the institute offers training programs in a variety of disciplines for martial artists of all skill levels. From hosting seminars with world-renowned masters, to holding sleepovers for kids; Best Martial Arts Institute is a place where teachers and dedicated students pursue the martial arts with a passion. We train with intensity, sincerity, humility, joy, and a bit of humor to lighten the way.

“I trained in the main program of Karate/Taekwondo for 8 years.”
“I think it’s a great place to train judo with very knowledgeable instructors.”
“Absolutely wonderful experience.”
Absolutely wonderful experience. The best place to go for Martial Arts. Sensei Best is wonderful with working with all ages. Great energy and sense of humor. Very supportive environment. Hoping to join back again soon!
From our first visit, my 4 year old son was enthralled by the karate teachers at Best Martial Arts. They are fun and playful but still expect the kids to follow the rules. Fun, exercise, and discipline- I couldn’t ask for a better combination for my child. And, there are also other types of martial arts that he can explore as he grows older!
My youngest son just started a month ago, but he’s already benefited so much from the karate classes. Sensei Best is such a fantastic instructor and he is so good with the kids (and adults, too). He keeps them very engaged and they’re always having so much fun while learning a ton. He’s a great motivator and I’m so glad that we started going here. The other instructors are really fantastic, too. Everything about this school is great. Don’t hesitate to join or to enroll your loved ones.

“Awesome place/people to be around and learn from.”
“I am going to enroll my niece and nephew for classes soon.”
“The Dojo is a fantastic facility, and the self-defense in invaluable.”
I took a self defense class here and it was amazing! The instructors were incredibly kind and knowledgeable and fun to be around. We were taught how to escape duct tape, escape the trunk of a car (by voluntarily being put into a car trunk in a safe, controlled environment), how to deflect knife and gun attacks, and of course some basic points of attack. Best part was that the class is free to the community and they hold them multiple times a year. Can’t wait for the next class! Awesome place/people to be around and learn from.
My family has trained here and we love it! The school integrates character building into the classes and includes people of all ages and abilities to participate. The instructors are very encouraging. You can expect to get a great workout as a whole family, and learn valuable skills in self defense.
Nice staff. Fun to.watch the.kids have so much fun while learning.

“The staff is awesome and the people are great.”
“This place has become a new extended family!”
“Positive atmosphere and fun just to watch my spouse learn and have fun!”
I started attending classes after watching my son in the Juniors program for almost a year. I started with women’s kick fit and Women’s empowerment and quickly moved to the Gracie Combatives Course. It is a family atmosphere and a place to train for life! Thank you to the amazing and patient instructors and fellow members.
An amazing program that my son has learned so much from, I am more confident in the little man I am raising due to the structure, values and self defense he has learned this last year. He loves his coaches and his classmates. My son loves this program, as do his parents!
This is an amazing school with something for everyone in your family. We are so grateful to have these people in our lives.

“If you have been wondering about martial arts training, dont wait any longer.”
“Jason is awesome and so is Chris and the rest of the staff.”
“You get so much experience in one central location and it is great”
I cannot truly express my gratitude and appreciation for this gym as well as its owner, Jason Georgianna, and Coach Kobb. My teenage son began going here last year and completely transformed his body, his mind, and his life. It helped him step into such an elevated level of health, awareness, responsibility, discipline, and self-esteem. The people here are obviously so good, and the entire business is run with so much integrity. THANK YOU ART OF WAR!!!
I love this gym! I joined to get out of my comfort zone and push myself more, physically, and what I got was that and more. Art of War is a phenomenal community whose coaches really work with you to improve your skills and training. More so, as a beginner, the coaches and classmates were very communicative and helpful.

Art of War is the best gym in town! It’s a great place regardless of whether you want to improve your skills as a competitive fighter, or if you just want to get in shape and learn self defense. The awesome facility is why you’ll come, but the good community and amazing coaches are why you’ll stay.
