...The whole point of this is to say that without you guys I never could have done any of this and my life would definitely not have been as rewarding as it has been.
Win or lose MMA/BJJ has taught me to aim high, never give up and that every problem has a solution and for that I'm forever grateful.

...The staff's attitude, dedication and encouragement have been invaluable to my development. It has been a great opportunity to make new friends and connections and is truly an incredible place...
Excellent guidance and encouragement from top staff who teach excellent skills and empower confidence. Accessible to diverse cultures and age groups.
...Thank you Chief and Leonie for devoting so much of your time to us all. It is an experience that will never be forgotten.
Everyone should know how to defend themselves. You will definitely learn these abilities at the Academy of Combat. Don't hesitate start today, you will not regret it when the situation arises when you have to defend/protect yourself.
...I would recommend this course (N.A.S.T.I Self Defence) to everyone, male, female and child alike, as it covers a range of scenarios on multiple levels.
I found it to be invaluable towards my attitude to the way I live and go about my life; where once I froze in the face of fear, I now don't give it the time of day.
A hidden treasure in the heart of Christchurch. It would be difficult to find a more motivating environment. Thanks to Chief, Jason, Scott and crew.

I have been training at the Academy of Combat for over a year now and I have learnt so much in that time. Training here is always challenging and I enjoy pushing myself; with grading and graduation as goals and also as a measure of how I"m doing. All staff and students are friendly and helpful; the gym has a great atmosphere. They cater to everyone, from beginners to fighters, and offer many different styles to train in. I have been to other gyms and found the Academy of Combat to be my favourite and I don't see myself leaving!
I have only been going for about 5 weeks but can tell anyone who is looking to start in this sport that the people here are some of the best around. The way they treat new people coming into the sport and even old guys like me is a credit to the gym and the owners. To have this within the gym is huge for new people coming into the sport. The help from both the trainers and the other students is great. Would have to be the best gym in the country by far. Come along anyone who is interested you will not be disappointed at all.
Fantastic trainers, relaxed atmosphere, something to look forward to every week.
