Ironside is my first time going to any mma gym and I was kinda nervous going into it but it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. it has been awesome. The coaches are all great and the other students are as well. Everyone is really helpful and respectful of one another. Couldn’t recommend it enough.
Great facility great environment A lot of good talent in this gym I will recommend it to everyone that’s interested in taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Ironside has been such a breath of fresh air for myself and my son. Not only do they do a first class job of instilling discipline, structure and respect but they do it in a positive, friendly, and loving environment for the kids. Coach Tanner and Coach Dylan are highly skilled blue belts and are committed full time in their own progression to becoming world champions, while training directly under Master Sina Hadad. [A world champion] I can’t think of better people fit for the job.
Simply amazing! Sleek environment, abundance of positive energy and pure art unraveling on the mats.This is an amazing and wonderful place to train. Whatever your skill level is you will be welcomed and challenged on a daily basis. If you've ever thought about training jiu jitsu, don't hesitate to come here because this is the place to be. Coach Sina and his team of instructors have taken Jiu Jitsu to a new level. Through patient instruction, thorough explanation, demonstration and a persistent attention to detail. I am honored to be a part of this family.
Ironside is for all levels from beginner to pro. Whether you're just looking to get in shape or you want to become a real fighter, this is the place for you. Great instruction from down to earth coaches in Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai, judo, & MMA. I can't emphasize enough how much knowledge & experience our coaches have, & they're willing to pass it on us students. I've been at Ironside for about two and a half years and I've never left the gym without a soaked t-shirt. The cherry on top of everything is the great atmosphere, we're like a big family. No need to be intimidated, we all help one another & push each other. I love my teammates! Come be a part of Team Ironside!
The people here at Ironside are like one big family. Everyone is super respectful and humble about what they do. No matter if you're a professional fighter, or someone walking in on your first day, everyone is treated with the same level of respect.

I cannot say enough good things about Ironside Martial Arts! The coaches are absolutely amazing. They have world class technique and teaching ability and they care about each student like I have never seen with any coaches I've had in the past. The coaches here not only teach Martial arts for sport and self-defense but they make sure to instill discipline, courage and integrity along the way. The lessons I have learned at Ironside have not only helped me be a more fierce competitor but a better person in my life outside of the gym! Words don't do justice to the coaches and how incredible they are but the members make everyday a fun and healthy learning environment as well. I've seen people from all walks of life flourish at this gym; big, small, young, old, fit, out of shape, etc. Whether you want to learn Grappling and striking for self-defense, fitness, or competition, you will love being a part of this amazing team and family! OSS!
My son was only here for a short time and he loved it. Coach Tanner does a great job with the kids. He is very understanding and helps the newcomers get accustomed to the routines. This is a welcoming environment and I highly recommend them.
