Brigadeiro Mount Dora Jiu Jitsu


Coach David and Mrs. Annie were all the kids could talk about! They lived jujitsu! We have three children, two girls and a boy 7,8,and 9. Although we had just joined the gym, it felt like family instantly! The hunger my kids had to learn and the passion for the sport David and Annie had was the perfect combination! David pushed the kids to train and give 110% while Annie would motivate them! The classes were always full of kids to train with and the opportunity to learn was always given. Whenever the kids would ask a question, David's face would light up in joy to answer it! Because of his knowledge, there would be days we would be at the gym for hours talking, training BJJ. I will always be thankful of the diversity They brought to my children's fight. They run a children's program full of love, dedication, and spirit. I will always be thankful for the family gained there and will revisit at every given chance. The family at this gym will never be forgotten. Bittersweetly, we've had to leave but the kids are still training and we frequently are in touch with David and Annie.

Those two have such a dedication towards children. They are willing to give the Gi off their back to teach. We have been very blessed to know them.

I googled Bjj schools near me and Mount Dora Bjj Academy was the first one to pop up. I walked in and tried out a couple classes and am never looking back. Everyone at class is there to help you and no one is there to hurt of bully you. Its one of the best decisions I have ever made. Dave is a top notch teacher, coach, and friend.

I had the pleasure of stopping by Mt. Dora BJJ on my vacation during the summer in Florida. It is a family run Jiujitsu/MMA school with a lineage to World Champion Cyborg Abreu. Everyone is very warm and friendly with tough training. Coach Dave has a very nice way about him that would make anyone feel comfortable. The new facility can accommodate any kind of training you are looking for and the students are high level which is a testament to the training an teaching. You will EARN your belt here. All in all I had a tremendous experience here and will definitely be back. If you are ever in or around Mount Dora I would highly recommend you check these guys (and girls!) out :)

Just wanted to say what a GREAT experience I have had at the Mount Dora Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy. Whether you are looking for great Martial Arts instruction or just a great workout, Coach Dave can get you all set up! And it is a great family environment as well. My girls got to train a little and are excited about going back and learning BJJ as well. I can't say enough about Coach Dave and the school at Mount Dora BJJ Academy, you just have to go check it out for yourself! Blessings!

If you are looking for a great BJJ Academy that is family-oriented, with awesome instructors who truly care about you, then look no further! I first heard about Mount Dora BJJ Academy through my dad and younger brother. They both attended one class and came back convinced that I should give it a try as well. I was extremely hesitant and almost didn't go. However I decided to give it a try and I do not regret this decision at all. It is evident that Coach David and Annie want to see everyone succeed. They make it their own goal to help each student reach whatever personal goal they have set for themselves. Amazing academy, wonderful atmosphere, and good people! I would not think twice about recommending Mount Dora BJJ Academy to anyone who asks!
