Pure Mixed Martial Arts is a fun and safe atmosphere, where you feel accepted and a part of the team the moment you step on the mats. I have been a member of Pure since day 1, and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The only decision that topped it, would be when I signed my wife and daughters up also. I am happy to see their confidence grow and their skills to defend themselves in any situation. Jiu Jitsu is one of the most practical styles of Martial Arts that anyone can use, no matter of size or strength. Being in Law Enforcement I teach Jiu Jitsu to the recruits at the academy. After a few weeks they are able to control a subject much larger than them and use minimal force. Pure has everything you need, Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Muay Thai, Yoga and cardio programs all in one place.
One of the best decisions I've ever made was signing up at Pure in 2014. Not only are Mikey and Andy great and friendly people, they're essentially jiu jitsu and muay thai encyclopedias. I've been trained for many years at a lot of other gyms and none have been as informative and inviting as Pure. The environment that they have created is second to none and feels like a giant family. Whether you have never trained and are looking to start or have experience and are looking for a different school, you'd be doing yourself a huge disservice by not at least checking it out.
I’ve been a member of Pure for almost a year and a half now. I was super hesitant to join because it was something new and a huge step outside of my comfort zone. Literally, by the end of my first class I was hooked. I felt embraced immediately which really helped with my initial anxiety in joining. Andy and Mikey, along with all of the other coaches create such an amazing learning experience and everyone leaves their ego at the door. Pure really does feel like a second family and I’ve made great friends in my short tenure there. I cannot imagine finding another gym, especially given the size, that would have such a friendly environment where everyone is out to help one another. Beginning Jiu Jitsu, but more specifically joining Pure, has been one of the best life decisions I have ever made.
Whatever discipline you’re looking to get involved with, Pure has it all. You won’t regret it.
I have been training at Pure for about a year now and it's been a great experience. Andy, Mikey, and all of the coaches care about each students progression. No matter what your goals are, there is something for everyone and it is done so in an environment that allows each person to learn. I believe there's Black Friday specials going on now too, so if you're looking to start getting in shape for the New Year, having fun, and meeting a lot of people, this is the place to be... See you there!
Now for the great part. This is not your cookie-cutter school. From the second you walk in you feel nothing short of welcomed. Wether you are a competitor or someone who simply enjoys martial arts and wants to get in shape, Andy & Mike are the real deal and are there to offer you a wealth of knowledge and encouragement. There are also plenty of higher level belts on the matt to train with that are willing to help out new comers such as myself.
Furthermore, Pure offers almost a dozen morning and evening kickboxing & fitness classes. John, Nick, & Erin always have exciting classes planned ahead and will get you in shape. In addition to kickboxing & fitness, John leads a team of exemplary black belt children's Tae Kwon Do instructors. My son has had the pleasure of training with this team and I can't say enough great things about them.
Simply put. An excellent school with great instructors and great people to train with.
