My 6year old son has been training at Emerge Jiu Jitsu for over 6months now and I was so impressed by the art and the gentle, genuine instruction and consistent encouragement here that I decided to start training along side my son as well as in the adult classes.  I couldn't be more happy with Don and his family and the way they have helped my son grow in discipline, mental and physical health, and self esteem.  Since beginning his training my wife and I have noticed considerable changes in his behavior, focus, and desire to learn in his homeschooling as well.  If you or your children are looking into any sort of martial art or sport I highly recommend you try out Emerge Jiu Jitsu first!

Don is the best coach. He KNOWS his stuff... and he’s able to TEACH it. The most patient man— kind, completely approachable... and still able to wrangle even the crazy little ones, and build these complex martial arts skills.

More importantly... my daughters LOVE this sport. They’re learning valuable skills of self-defense, but it’s not an intimidating grind— they view it as FUN. They love showing up for practice, and both Coach Don and Coach Matthew (also awesome!) are one-in-a-million.  (Or rather, TWO-in-TWO-million).

An absolutely fantastic place to train. Coach Don and Coach Matthew are super friendly and knowledgeable. The student base is welcoming and really supportive and the gym itself is super clean and beautiful. I'm very happy I chose to train here and you will be too!!

Myself and my kids have been training at Emerge for over a year and we love it. Very positive and supportive atmosphere.  Coach Don is a phenomenal instructor and mentor along with Coach Mathew and coach Jeff they make a great team. If your looking to become a high level bjj practitioner or just looking for a great place to work out with a awesome team atmosphere Give Emerge a shot.

This was the easiest place to fall in love with.  The Coopers provide an amazing environment to learn this wonderful sport in.  There are a lot of high level practitioners that role through here and share their knowledge.  There is constant improvement on something already great.  Soon this gym will be legendary.  I am proud to be part of this team.

Not sure where to start, I have done Jiu Jitsu on and off for 2 years now. Taking a break from it was a big mistake, and the race to find a new Jiu Jitsu home was a long one. When I tried Emerge, I knew it would be a place I'd anchor in. It is another family for me. Coach Don and his family are all around great human beings and I cant say enough great things about them. Its a safe, clean atmosphere that is welcoming which is rare at most gyms. 

Coach Don is a great, patient instructor whose advice is tangible. 

Coach Jeff has been an outstanding instructor both on and off the mat.

Emerge is a church for me, it humbles the ego and really helps with the battles and struggles life brings. 

If you are reading this and on the fence as I once was a long time ago, just take the leap and come in and try it out. Its a lifestyle that will change you and Emerge is the place to do it!
