I am thoroughly impressed with Joe, the head instructor and the program as a whole. The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai classes are fantastic, by far the best around. My 6 year old daughter currently does the kid’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program and it’s had a very positive effect on her confidence, and overall connection with her body, plus she has a blast! Highly recommend the program!
Excellent facility, top notch instructors and family atmosphere make being here a standout experience for me and my children. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone interested in learning or enhancing their martial arts acumen.
What a great school for children to learn self-confidence and how to not be bullied!
My daughter has grown in patience and confidence since joining DAMA! They have excellent teachers, we couldn’t be happier!
My sons love it and Joe is an awesome teacher… We are so happy we found them.
I love the Muay Thai. It’s very challenging and innovative. The instruction is excellent.
Very happy with the instruction our 6 year old receives from Professor Joe. It’s a good balance of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training and fun for kids.
Great classes, great support system! I love going to Renzo Gracie Troy!
I got to say I’ve had an amazing experience. I felt very welcomed, it’s a team atmosphere. Joe is an outstanding instructor; he really makes you earn it and tends every one of his students they. Overall DAMA is highly recommended from me for anyone who is looking to learn BJJ, Muay Thai or just looking to get in shape. The facility is great, the instructors are amazing. What more can you really ask for!
At age 59, I decided to take on a new challenge and I have not regretted it at all. I went to the initial workout for the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class and was hooked. Joe and his staff is extremely knowledgeable with the emphasis being placed on teamwork & developing your skills, I’ve lost almost 30 pounds & am in as good of shape as I’ve been since I was in my thirties. If you’re looking for something new & challenging, the Detroit Academy of Martial Arts is the place to go.
