I have been training at GTS for almost a year now and I have enjoyed every min. They offer several types of classes; BJJ, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, Judo, Yoga, fitness kickboxing and a variety of kids programs including daycare. The instructors have always been friendly and helpful, but more importantly all the other students are very welcoming. Starting martial arts can be very intimidating, but I highly suggest you stop in to GTS for at least a walk through to see that this is a very comfortable place to train.

This Gym is the best in Tampa hands down. I have been a member for a little over a year, and that decision has literally transformed my mind, body, and soul. I was your typical NPC competitor that joined GTS because of my bodybuilding coach. He told me it would be great cardio and I would love it. It is addicting!You learn so much about yourself mentally, and physically!The coaches are incredible. The facility is clean and amazing! After a long day at work I can't wait to go train, and be in the environment that Matt Arroyo and his staff have created at this gym. It caters to any fitness level. The intro programs, all the way to advanced are set up to make anyone successful! I am truly grateful for Gracie Tampa South!

Our 6 & 7 year are both enrolled in Gracie Tampa South’s Big and Little Ninja programs. Not only are they learning jiu jitsu – a skill they will carry with them through adulthood – the coaches help the kids grow their core character as well. Every month they learn about a different positive trait – honesty, friendship, initiative, just to name a few. Our children learn about how to be “bullyproof”, and how not to be a bully. They learn the importance of individual development, but also the importance of working as a team – Brazilian jiu jitsu may be an individual sport, but you can’t learn or improve if you don’t work with your teammates. I can’t say enough positive things about the kids program and how much it means to our boys. Oh, and did I mention both myself and my husband train here as well? From beginners classes to high-skill level classes, GTS has you covered for fitness, for jiu jitsu, for striking/Muay Thai...you name it, they have top level coaches and amazing classes.

Awesome place with a whole lot of great people. It's clean, welcoming and accommodating! The ladies room even has shampoos and conditioners if you were in a rush and forgot your essentials. Can't ask for a better way to treat guests. 10/10

4 Tips on Building Your Child's Confidence

Are you worried about what to do

with your kids in the afternoon and early evening?

You wonder how your kids are spending their free time while you’re finishing up your work day.

You want your child to make new friends and build healthy relationships.

Your child struggles with discipline and respect, and you want them to learn these core values.

Being a parent is never easy!

Which is why we have started our After School program…

One of the biggest challenges of parenting is finding wholesome and fun activities for your kids to do after school. It’s especially important if you work and you know your kids will be unsupervised for several hours a day. You want to know where your kids are and what they’re doing – and you want them to be learning something and not just playing video games.

That’s where our after-school program comes in. Kids learn about martial arts, including the core tenets of respect, discipline, and perseverance, in a fun and social setting.

your child will grow every day!

Learning martial arts helps kids in many ways. It teaches them to respect themselves and others, and to persist when they have a goal in mind. It emphasizes the mind-body connection and helps them to discipline themselves without being reminded.

Workout Instead of Sitting on the Couch

One of the most challenging things about being a parent these days is finding a way to tear your kids away from computers and video games and get them moving.

Our after-school program gives kids a physical outlet after a long day at school – and teaches them the value of fitness in a fun setting.

Safe, Positive Place to Spend After-School

Do your kids come home to an empty house after school because you’re at work? Instead of having them there by themselves, our after-school program gives them a fun and educational alternative.

When your kids are with us, they’re learning useful skills and spending time with other kids. You can rest easy knowing that they’re safe and sound.

Make New Friends & Have Fun

Sometimes, kids struggle to make new friends. It can be hard to find others with common interests or to have the time to socialize at school.

Our after-school program is a social setting, a place where kids can share experiences while learning something new. Many of the kids who attend our programs end up being close friends.

Learn Respect, Discipline, and Persistence

Some after-school programs simply offer parents a place to send their kids without any other benefits. Ours is different.

Kids who study martial arts learn respect for themselves and others, discipline in the pursuit of goals, and the rewards of hard work – lessons that carry over to home, school, and beyond.

Amazing gym and phenomenal instructors! I love everything about this place! Location, huge facility, clean and everyone here is like family.
It's also military friendly, so if you're active duty and new to the area, I highly recommend you try out Gracie Tampa South before going anywhere else. You will not regret it.

Ps. I recommend GTS to everyone, not just military. ;)

I can't tell you how impressed I've been with GTS. We live 20 min away and still make the drive 2-3 times a week because it has been so beneficial to our 9 yr old son. Not only does it meet every boy's need to have some physical outlet for all that energy, but we have noticed a huge difference in his maturity, respect, self-control, and confidence with his peers. The coaches are professional, kind, and amazing at understanding each individual child's unique needs and meeting them where they are at while encouraging them. Bonus that my son's grappling skills have rapidly improved in the few months we've been attending. This place is a diamond in the rough when it comes to martial arts programs for kids- it will NOT disappoint!
