You will not find Jiu-Jitsu like this anywhere. Felix is a knowledgeable caring instructor who is extremely talented. Great place for kids and adults to learn.

Jon Crow

The best Martial Arts school in Hot Springs. Felix Borel is the real deal. He is a gifted teacher and has real world experience that speaks for itself. Find out and see for yourself 👍🏻

Great staff! Not a snobby martial arts studio. Black belts will roll with white belts if they see a problem. That’s unheard of. No one gets left behind. Incredible instruction and they represent Machado Jui Jitsu very well.

John Mclean

Amazing instruction with an equally amazing group of people. Highly recommend training here.
