Wonderful place for children to learn at a different level. Don, Jennifer and Matthew were so good to my son. I will have my son attend hopefully this year once our schedule is set. Our friends recommended this place to us and I would recommend family n friends as well.
Just moved to the area so my boyfriend and I dropped in for a class. Jeff's instruction was great and all of the students were so welcoming. I actually forgot my belt so one of the students let me borrow his. Much appreciated! This school has a great all inclusive vibe. Thank you for a great experience
My 6year old son has been training at Emerge
Don and Jennifer are such great and caring people. I’ve known them as neighbors for many years. Emerge is a family focused Jiu Jitsu training facility teaching the skills of self defense and mindset for all levels. Their great family is heavily involved in the training with them as they create an environment where families can learn and train together.
It is a home away from home. Amazing people to be around, learn from, communicate, etc. I would recommend anyone to emerge. If you need grounding. Channeling, self defense, or a place to even relax, learn and feel alive, emerge is the place to be. Thank you very much for everything! ❤️
Don is the best coach. He KNOWS his stuff... and he’s able to TEACH it. The most patient
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).
Great atmosphere! Great place to learn for kids and adults. I would highly recommend Emerge to anyone looking to learn Jiu-Jitsu!
Clean, friendly, and very knowledgeable. my daughter (who is normally pretty shy) feels very comfortable and always has a smile on after practice. She really njoys it!
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!!
Great defense class for women. I learned so much and it was a safe and comfortable environment. I’m looking forward to training more. I’m glad I went out of my comfort zone and tried it. The instructors are very knowledgeable and respectful. It was a wonderful experience!
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
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
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.

Fantastic gym. Coach Don is very approachable, and his BJJ experience is extensive. The environment is serious enough for advanced
This is a great gym to get started on your BJJ training. The coaches are very knowledgeable. Very clean and inviting environment.
I have been incredibly happy with the instruction that I, and my kids,
I recently went to emerge for
We love it here! I appreciate that not only are our kids learning jiu-jitsu, but they are gaining confidence, discipline
I've been bringing my daughter here for a few weeks and absolutely love it, great family environment and she's learning a lot. Wonderful family owned business
Everyone is really inviting and friendly!
Great staff, great vibes, and great rolls!
I have to agree with the other five star ratings. Don and his whole family are people of Integrity, people of excellent character, who have the amazing ability to show very real care and concern for others over and above themselves. Rarely am I able to recommend martial arts gyms or dojo, but I have no hesitation recommending Emerge.
The class was great and the instructors/coaches were very patient, kind, and super informative! We've known Don Cooper and his family for years and he is one of the very few men that I would completely trust my girl's with.
I'm so impressed with what I've seen that I'm signing our whole family up! What a great way to learn self-defense, discipline, and to condition and tone our bodies! Oh, and they are Christian, praying before and after class!
I am so pleased with our experience at Emerge Jiu-Jitsu. Don and his family are inspiring and have taught our son the importance of discipline, health, faith, and hard work. Respect came easy for him as they give and earn it freely here. So incredibly blessed with a martial arts gym here in Vancouver, WA full of integrity and fun
My 12-year-old son absolutely LOVES learning Jiu Jitsu at Emerge!! Instructor Don is phenomenal. Physical activity isn't my boy's favorite thing in the world, so it is wonderful to see him work on moves he learned in class at home. The parent area is comfortably set up and I have enjoyed getting some work done on the laptop while he's in class, so it's a win-win for both of us!
Faith, Family & Jiu-Jitsu. Great place to train. Don and Matthew are great instructors that care so much. Great atmosphere, with tons of respect. Thank you Emerge for being so welcoming to visitors like myself. I hope to continue visiting your academy when I come to town.
I just started classes at Emerge and am loving the family-friendly environment. I can't wait until the next class and what I will learn from both Coach Don and Matthew in the many months to come! As a woman and being new to this, I felt intimidated at first but was quickly put at ease by the not too overwhelming way in which both Coach Don and Matthew lead the class. Thank you Emerge BJJ!
What a rare find! I've been to several jiu-jitsu gyms, but what the Coopers have created here is truly unique and special. Thanks for being here and being who you are!
This program is excellent!!! The instructors work hard to meet to students where they are at as they teach and guide along the way. Truly a top-notch program!
Excellent workout, clean facilities, excellent teaching, and encouraging instructors and participants! As an aside, I also really appreciate that when music is used it is not too loud.
Very excited for the opening of Emerge! Really wanted to speak about the character of the owner. Don is a very thoughtful, patient, and dedicated person. I would not trust very many people with my children but I would be very confident enrolling them to learn from Don and his family. Really looking forward to the first lessons in the new gym.
Great place! Good workout for my son, professional, respectful, quick response time when trying to get questions answered. Very competitive pricing! Love the family feel of it.
