Gracie Tampa West academy is a safe and friendly environment to learn jiu-jitsu and MMA. The instructors provide structured classes for all levels of experience. Bamboo, head instructor, is an elite grappler, and is dedicated to his students. I have trained at many gyms in the Tampa area, and this gym provides the most complete instruction for self defense, sport jiu-jitsu and physical fitness. The facility is clean and there are ample classes to accommodate my busy lifestyle. I highly recommend Gracie Tampa West for anyone who is serious about learning all aspects of jiu-jitsu and MMA.
