This place is very family friendly and the schedule is wonderful for working parents. My daughter’s birthday just passed and they took the time to send her a personalized birthday video which we truly appreciated. They have a way of making your child feel welcomed and included from the first day that they start the program and that is very kind of them to do.Over all my child who is the most shy person in the world is now making friends and her confidence has gone through the roof and they teach them life lesson as well. I would most definitely recommend Gracie Pac MMA to anyone.
Gracie PAC is a wonderful dojo. They offer so much more than instruction. All of the staff is extremely professional and caring. My son loves attending and enjoys learning new techniques and leveling up. They do a great job of engaging the students during classes. Good character and leadership qualities are also strongly emphasized in their program. We have been very pleased with our experience thus far and would highly recommend them if you are searching for a MMA home.
My daughter is 14 and loves this gym, she has been training for 6 months and is absolutely dedicated and enjoys the sport. Great facility and great instructors and staff.
This is a great school focused on the fundamentals of the art and core principles of being an all around good person. There are multiple facilitators in each class to ensure the students are learning proper form and keep a good flow in the class. The children not only need to excel in class but at home and school to be promoted. You are immediately welcomed as part of the Gracie PAC family when you come in. All of the coaches and Professor take the time to greet and learn every student’s name. I can’t speak for the adult program but my daughter enjoys going to class and attending the various programs the school hosts in addition to class for the kids and their families. Ready to Rock! Ready to Roll!!
I could not recommend Gracie PAC MMA enough. Our entire family trains there and not only it the adult class awesome with great coaches and fellow students, but Gracie PAC MMA has THE BEST kids training classes. They not only teach them marital arts, but also life skills (Respect, Focus, Teamwork, and Fitness) and earn stripes for each. They can even earn “stars” on their gi uniform for their school achievements and attendance. It’s a well-rounded curriculum to be better physically and mentally.
Our son joined almost a year ago when he turned 4. He absolutely loves going to class. He has matured a lot this last year and taking these classes has definitely helped. The people there are great. Coach Leo and Ana are so nice and helpful as are all the coaches. They truly care about our son and are very encouraging. They make the classes fun but they also get exercise, structure and lessons good for every day life. We just signed up for another year and we are excited to watch our little man progress the next year with the help of Gracie Pac!!
We love it at Gracie PAC! They focus on fitness, strength, form, and most importantly they work hard every lesson to help teach my children how to effectively defend themselves against bullies and other attacks. It’s easy to see this group of educators clearly loves kids and have a passion for sharing their vast knowledge with their students! Best MMA in the Bay for kids!
My wife and I were looking for a friendly, family oriented MMA classes for our son (10) and daughter (12). They love martial arts and have been doing it for years, in an after school program (TKD). Well, after looking around, we joined Gracie PAC MMA. Let me tell you, this place is perfect. Their staff and coaches are incredible; friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and experience on everything MMA. Professor Cris Rodriguez is great with kids, amazing teacher. We are extremely happy with Gracie MMA, their staff is great, they are very organize and their curriculum (bjj, muay thai, kick boxing, etc….) has everything we were looking for. Great place for the entire family.
Our family has been coming to Gracie PAC Tampa for nearly two years. We began sending our son first. Our main goals were for him to experience the physical and mental benefits derived from regular physical exercise. Instantly we realized how special this place is, and how amazing Coach Cris is with the kids, as well as adults. She is fair but firm, and as she commands respect, she encourages these kids to rise to their full potential, also providing valuable discussions on character, sportsmanship, and leadership, as part of her curriculum.
My husband takes some of the adult jiu jitsu and kickboxing classes, from which he has benefitted greatly, and I truly enjoy being a member of the ladies’ bootcamp group. These ladies represent a wide range of fitness levels and ages. Each class, we all get together to kick butt, do our best, and encourage each other in a true team environment. I never leave this class disappointed.
Gracie PAC Tampa MMA – best place EVER for your anyone in your family to train at.
We have been with the PAC family for about a year and a half and our daughter loves it. The coaches are hands on and amazing. They know every Ninja by name as well as the parents. They incorporate values and life lessons in every class and create a fun environment for the kids to learn!
I can’t say enough about how much I love this place! My son is learning so much and he LOVES going to class. There’s something so rewarding in watching your child learn and grow so quickly 🙂 Coach Chris, Coach Dan and Coach Rich have all been amazing! I couldn’t ask for a better environment for my son. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and so much of yourself – we truly appreciate it!
Gracie PAC MMA has been one of, if not the best, mixed martial arts gym I have been a part of. The kids program/instruction is second to none, and offers world class BJJ instruction for adults as well as one of the most promising striking programs in the US, Bang Muay Thai. Countless kids and adults have competed at the highest level under the GPAC banner, with even more discovering what martial arts can do for them. Whether you want to compete or get in great shape, this facility has the program for you
