Is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Right for Everyone?

We teach men, women, and kids of all ages and skill levels. We feel everyone can learn valuable skills such as self-defense, discipline, and perseverance all while having fun at Ruffhouse.
Ruffhouse is an excellent place to train. The people at the gym are some of the friendliest, most polite people that I’ve ever interacted with. They also have excellent technical Brazilian Jiu Jitsu knowledge and are happy to explain the details to anyone who comes in to train. Seeing my buddies in the gym and having some good rolls are regularly the highlights of my day.

Wanted to express my thanks to a great team that inspires me and welcomed me as family the moment I first entered the doors in Mesa, Az. I have been to many gyms and had great experiences. But not one can measure up to the experience that I get when Im rolling at your Mesa gym.
The training is well worth the 50 mile drive that I can manage to do on open Mat days. The passion that I see and feel is truly well built on the Mat at Ruffhouse. If anyone want to learn and succeed in jiu jitsu you will get what you need from the Ruff team in Mesa, Az. Just like Professor Arthur his students are as passionate and family oriented as he is. Thank you Ruffhouse for being a big part or where Im at and where I’m heading to in Jiu Jitsu.
