“Super clean and brand new facility, excellent instructors – a true family
“Owner, staff and team members are all very welcoming.”
Sign up your Kids now!! This family owned business has become near and dear to our hearts. Our kids are learning a lot more than just the art of self-defense, as character development and accountability are the foundations of their program. Promotions are not just handed out, they are earned through a combination of demonstrating the skills learned in class and illustrating character growth & development. Coach Caoilainn is fantastic with our kids and has become a mentor to our oldest child. She is an excellent role model for all and is one of many reasons why will continue to go to Bam Bam Martial Arts.
This place has been great for my family. Their emphasis on character development is unique among martial arts schools and has been of significant benefit in teaching our two elementary-school aged sons and having deeper discussion about life with them. Coach Manny and Katelyn bring their own unique styles to teaching and both are very relatable and down-to-earth. Coach Erik, who is often involved in teaching the younger class (where our younger son currently is) is also a great instructor for the little ones, showing great patience and communicating well with us parents. Overall, I am more than happy with our experience at Bam Bam and am excited to continue on with them for years ahead
I am finally getting around to write this review after four years of membership at Bam Bam. Both my boys train here and they absolutely love it. My older one has come a long way from being a shy and sensitive kid to a strong outgoing personality. Coach Manny is so great with him. He is very professional and very patient. He takes the time to break down the techniques and ensures that all the kids understand. He genuinely cares about the children and their progress. Coach Manny is calm yet stern and respectful with the children and they exude confidence and drive in his class! He is very knowledgeable in his skill and has helped my son in better self-esteem, defense and realizing his full potential. Also, teaching him to focus and to have discipline apart from Jiu Jitsu. Top-notch instruction by top-notch instructor! Also, a clean gym with an awesome location. Great environment for children and I couldn’t be more satisfied!

“The instructors make you feel at home and give you a hearty family welcome.”
“The atmosphere is very personal and family-like.”
“I highly recommend this location and program.”
This school does what it advertises to do which is teaching self-defense at its best. The great instructors here teach it every day with lots of emphasis in learning the techniques useful in the street. The black belt degree is of the best quality ever and I have been to several different martial arts schools in my 17 years of practising martial arts in different schools. I am so glad I joined them.
The instructors are amazing and really care about the students and their individual progress. The facility is spacious and clean. They do an amazing job with COVID protocols and my family always feels safe there. The program is useful for all ages and focuses not just on physical abilities, but mental health and leadership qualities, as well. They also have a number of special events, which allow them to develop various skills and keep the interest up. Great place all around.
The instructors, black belts, students, and parents are all part of a tightly knit community. I am a 3rd-degree black belt and have trained my entire martial arts career at Leaders for Life Martial Arts. Martial arts help bring confidence and discipline into my life. I love it here!!!
