I just started taking Brazilian jiu jitsu classes and threshold martial arts and I love it! I came into the classes with absolutely no experience. The instructors at threshold made me feel welcomed and 100% safe and comfortable. I love the classes and everyone is super nice and helpful!!
My 7 year old daughter has been training for months here at threshold, and i can surely say this has been an integral part of her growth. Not only is threshold teaching her about ju jitsu, its forming her character in terms of respect for elders, self defense, camaraderie with her peers, competitive spirit and most of all, discipline. The Gym is very clean and roomy enough, the instructors, Bill and Chris, are very professional and are excellent and patient with children. Highly recommended for kids and grownups alike.
I had initially been looking to enroll my son in a martial arts class. After having done some research into area facilities, I inquired online to TMA. Not long after I received a personal call from the owner and had a great discussion about the class to see if it was what we we were looking for. He invited us to attend a class prior to enrolling. Glad to say we've been attending for about 10-11 weeks now. Highly recommend and well structured training facility.
This is an amazing place to do the best workout!. You feel very comfortable when doing every workout and the instructors are there to help you achieve your goals. I just started and every class is different and well structured, the instructors are passionate and supportive and I got to met great people. At first I thought kickboxing is just technique, but the classes are actually a mix of self defense, discipline, develop strong cardio and improve focus. Great for kids, great for first timers, great for advanced levels.
I've been training here for over a year, kickboxing, about 3 times a week. I did martial arts as a kid so I wasn't really intimidated when I started. Even though I was more out of shape then I thought, I caught on after about a month. Everyone is super friendly and supportive no matter what skill level.
Aside from the fact that the instructors are great, funny, safety conscious, and professional, they are also great people to hit up for quick bits of information before, or after class, or during open mat. I learned here what are good foods to eat before class, what gear is best for me, how to stretch my hands to prevent strain or injury, etc. They really coach you.
What I am really enjoying now is that it's not the same workout as I first started. I got better, the instructors modified to push me, which I wanted. They also have a knack for finding little things to improve upon and making a class to target that.
There's been a good amount of students to train with. Everyone brings something different to the table so you can find different things to improve on.
Threshold is an amazing gym. My son does the kids BJJ program and Chris Trella is an insanely good teacher. He is very patient and uses positive reinforcement to get the best from his students. I am training BJJ myself with Bill and Ed and they are great. I'm looking forward to continuing on with my martial arts journey at Threshold.
Threshold Martial Arts is without a doubt the best school! My 2 kids are training BJJ and I am doing Kickboxing.
Every week my kids cannot contain their excitement to go to the classes and learn new skills. They love the place, the instructors, the techniques and the enthusiasm. Even my very artsy daughter gave up her ballet classes for Jiu-Jitsu at Threshold Martial Arts.
Coach Chris has a ton of patience and is wonderful with the kids. Professor Bill is so knowable, surprisingly sweet (looks so tough) and has the no-nonsense attitude that I love!
It is a tough, but fun and welcoming environment that provides solid martial arts education for the little ones and for the adults.
I personally adore this place and defiantly recommend it to anyone who feels the need to get good and effective workout on, learn a solid martial arts techniques, or simply release the inner beast.
Excellent group of instructors, clean, safe facility, and a really welcoming group of men & women to work out with and learn from. Very impressed! The head instructor called me directly after my initial inquiry, and responds to emails fast. Stop by and check it out!
Was very impressed training here. Solid instruction, from an engaging, technical blackbelt. Very friendly crew to rep and roll with. Clean and organized. I highly recommend training bjj here! Thanks Threshold!
