I joined tupelo jui jitsu looking for a fun way to get back into shape, while also hoping to find something my wife and I could enjoy doing together.It's been an amazing experience to say the least, I've lost 17lbs since I started and have thoroughly enjoyed doing it. Cody is a great coach and the entire place has a supportive atmosphere, everyone belongs here. I'd recommend it to anyone. My 6 year old son also takes the children's class, and absolutely loves it.

I started doing jiu jitsu at Tupelo Jiu Jitsu Academy knowing absolutely nothing. The people & environment in this gym kept me coming back. The progress I’ve seen in such a short time is incredible! Cody is very knowledgeable & a great teacher. Going to class is the highlight of my week!

Checked in to a morning class as an out of town B.B. student and was welcomed by the Instructor and class. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Cody is a great coach and a legit blackbelt. The other coaches were top notch too. If you are looking for a great place to train I would highly recommend this school.
