The BJJ Instructors are Awesome

★★★★★

“Coach Seth and Professor Justin manage to teach Jiu-Jitsu in a way that's informative, challenging, and fun. The instructors have been doing it a long time and still actively compete! The other students are safe partners. I'd recommend this program to anyone who has been interested in learning jiu-jitsu.”

Their Resistance Class is my favorite!

★★★★★

“The KUT program uses a combination of classes for maximum results, and works with your diet educating everyone on healthy choices. My favorite class is a strength training class that they do with bands. My upper body is much more toned since taking the class. I also enjoy their kickboxing class, where I get to work on my form and technique.”

I drive all the way from UCSB for this!

★★★★★

“If you like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, this is the place in Santa Barbara to train! There is such a good vibe (there’s not a meat head in the house!). They are alllll about respect. Professor Justin is a badass black belt who is tough as nails and has an incredible BJJ game and he actually cares about his students, which is hard to find these days. The mats are clean, the prices are fair, and we drive all the way from UCSB - and it’s so worth it.”

The school is very well structured

★★★★★

“I've been practicing martial arts at various schools for nearly 20 years. Of all the schools I've trained with, this is definitely among the top. The school is very well structured, allowing for participation at all levels. Advancement is never guaranteed, but it is scaled for kids and adults alike. The atmosphere is full of respect, tho it doesn't follow the heavy handed discipline of some more extreme schools.”

MAFF is so supportive and so passionate!

★★★★★

The moment I walked into MAFF, I knew that this time, it actually WAS going to be different. I had found an extraordinary place to support me in my journey. I decided to sign up for the KUT (kickboxers ultimate training) program. I can honestly say that EVERY SINGLE person at MAFF are so supportive and so passionate about what they do.”

This has truly changed my life

★★★★★

“The kickboxing classes in alignment with the bands classes really help to work all those muscles we tend to forget about while also building flexibility and a lot of strength and power! And it is SO MUCH FUN! MAFF is unlike any "gym" or workout routine I've ever witnessed. It has truly changed my life. In my first 3 week evaluation I lost 4% body fat, and 7 lbs! I am looking SO great and see the changes every single day.”

Perhaps the best form of exercise that there is

★★★★★

“I expanded my martial arts training to include a fitness regimen that uses the resistance bands classes that are taught here. Master Wheaton said that bands might be the best form of exercise that there is - I must say that after three months, I am in great shape and look forward to those classes as much at the martial arts classes in the evening.”

Love that it's Family Owned & Operated

★★★★★

“LOVE this place. Family owned and operated makes it even better. Our son takes Hapkido here, and they treat every child with respect and compassion. I think they are great.

The teachers care for the students!

★★★★★

“I met another mom in the locker room at MAFF and she summed it up perfectly: the Little Ninjas program teaches so much more than martial arts. MAFF is in the business of people building, mind, body and spirit! The heart and soul of the program is really found in the outstanding teachers who care for each student as a whole person!”
