Modern BJJ is THE place to train in south Texas! Emmanuel Martinez is a highly skilled competitor and excellent instructor. The gym is always clean and packed with talented students willing to help the next person in line grow to meet their goals as a competitor or student.
Highly recommend training under the Modern BJJ lights!
Best gym in the area and amazing staff and coaches.
Love the atmosphere here ! Super awesome people. You won’t regret joining 😃👍
Modern is by far the best gym you can bring your child and/or self to! The instructor to class ratio is great and the black belt is always in class to train everyone from the newest member to the most advanced. I strongly recommend training here!!
Great staff, awesome place!
Great coaching staff and their attention to details is the best.
My 5 year old loves it! He’s always looking forward to go practice. Clean and friendly environment! Great coaching as well.
This gym has great instructors. Very fun, friendly, and positive environment. I would definitely recommend this gym to everyone. Great for kids as well!!
Inviting and positive staff. I'm new to town and haven't trained in 6months. everyone welcomed me in, made me feel welcomed and made sure I was understanding what was happening. Modern is a great academy which really wants you to learn.
Great school, even better instructor. Very welcoming environment, coming from another school I didn’t know if I’d feel at home, but once I stepped onto the mat everything just fell into place.
The hands on training with the kids is awesome. The ratio to coaches to kids is good, so the kids get more attention on learning the different moves. I recommend modern 100% for anyone.
I just love this place. My kids and husband have been coming here for a month, and there's a real sense of community and camaraderie here. Everyone gets along, and everyone seems focused on helping everyone learn. From day one, everyone has been very welcoming and helpful. Professor Manny and his coaches are amazing, I love that they take time to help my boys improve their technique daily. And, if your looking for a great competition team this is the place to be! Thank you Modern BJJ!
Very friendly community and awesome coaching staff!
Modern is a amazing school with good people and if you have a weakness in a position they will make you practice until it becomes your strongest position.
After my kids have tried numerous sports, they fell in love with jiu jitsu and the great hospitality at modern!!!! Great training , motivation booster, and best of all self defense !!!! Hands down best academy in the entire valley !!!!!
I dropped in for a workout at Modern Jiu-Jitsu during a trip to McAllen, TX. I was greeted at the door and was immediately treated like part of the Modern Jiu-Jitsu family. The environment was clean, friendly, and professional. The techniques taught in class were explained in detail, realistic, and was easily added to my game. I could easily see all of the students at Modern BJJ were highly technical and great partners to have during the sparring time at the end of class. I will be back to learn more every time I am in McAllen. Thanks Professor Martinez for a great workout and sharpening my game.
First and foremost solid instructional from Manny Martinez. Able to easily convey techniques to novices and higher belts alike. Very good at tweaking your game of having problems drilling or during live rolls. California cool look to the academy think AOJ. Great mat etiquette followed. Attention to detail including cleanliness on mat and off such as restrooms. Developing kids class with zero bullying tolerated. I'm very pleased. Next evolution of what already was the best Jiu Jitsu facility in the RGV. Massive mat space over 2k square feet. No beams or support to watch out form. Great parking and location central to surrounding community. Showers and separate change rooms and restrooms ideal. Welcoming lounge area and sign up area for new members. Staff and instruction friendly, welcoming and high quality. Variety of reasonably priced beverages before and after training including coffee and espresso for the older members.
Great future ahead of you if you undertake the journey.
Had a great first experience especially being new to jiu jitsu. Will be coming back!
I was in town visiting and tried this place out and really enjoyed it! The people treat you like one of their own! The quality of technique drills and training partners are great!
Amazing place to train and very clean! Everyone is family there!
Awesome place to train! Super welcoming environment especially for a first timer!
The coaches work great with you, and the team is so supportive. Everyone helps each other succeed!
Great atmosphere, extraordinary technique and the facility is always extra clean. It’s more than just a gym, it’s a family ❤️
