Signing up for Big Johns was one of the biggest mistakes I've made for my family. We thought that the kids classes were a good idea for our sons but because its so unsupervised and taught by instructors who appear to have very little to no experience at all working with children that my wife and I we were concerned that someone might get hurt whether it be our kids or someone elses. My predictions werent far off since nearly a month after joining (and paying ridiculous sign-up fees) we really felt like the place wasnt safe anymore. The instructors have no clue what theyre doing in terms of child safety and liability risks and our kids paid the price by their lack of supervision. Overall, Im disappointed in the expectations we had and blatantly, Im convinced that they will get sued one day if a child gets seriously injured there. We really dont care that were still paying for the membership even though we dont go (the contract is impossible to get out of). Were just happy that we pulled our kids out before any serious damage was done. If you care about your children's safety, I would stay clear away from this place!!

Big John McCarthy Ultimate Training Academy is the best gym I have ever been too. awesome weight room, all kinds of cardio machines and a rock wall too. The classes cover all aspects of martial arts. The instructors create an atmosphere that makes me want to return and train often. Many ways to shed unwanted pounds here!

We ran into several problems shortly after singing their contract that they sold to us on the condition that they would ??help? with my son??s self-esteem. At Big Johns, we noticed that the instructors all had big attitude problems, even working with children. I can recall several times when my son would even tell me that he thought the instructors didn??t like him because he was told that he wasn??t doing things ??right? in class. Their instructors never took the initiative to help explain the correct technique or instruction to my son. When we tried to address some of these issues with the staff, they were apathetic toward us and didn??t even offer a solution to our problem. To make things worse, the classes are disorganized and lacking the proper supervision. My son ended up getting hurt in class because the instructor put him with a much larger boy. When I pointed this out to the instructor, he just told me ??he??ll be fine.? Well, my son wasn??t fine. Had BJMUTA properly trained him and prepared him that would be one thing, but he was still within his first month of training and trying to get the basic technique down practically on his own. That was the last straw for us. When we told their membership staff about the incident, they were once again apathetic to our concerns and insisted to tell us that it was our son??s fault. They blamed a 9yr old kid on their inability to supervise. When we tried to cancel our membership, they told us that they couldn??t because they do their member contracts through "Member Solutions" which is basically IMPOSIBLE to get out of. We are still paying for BJMUTA and dr. visits. This has been more of a nightmare for us than we ever imagined. If you know what??s best for you and your family, you better STAY AWAY!

Big John's is the perfect place for people with tattoos, bad attitudes and raised trucks. If you're a BRO and have a SO CAL or SKIN sticker on the back of your raised truck then this is the right place for you. I trained at Big John's for almost a year and the entire time I was there all I got was major attitude from everyone who trains there and works there. The students aren't even that good. Maybe if they spent more time on training and less time on dirty vibes they would actually get better. But wait, that would mean the instruction would have to be good...NOT!!! I think Big John's celebrity status and large facility is the ONLY reason he is still in business because the training, the students and the staff are mediocre at best. I recently signed up at another facility where it's all about the training and the sharing of knowledge. Big John should come by and take some notes.

Big John's Ultimate gym is a place for people young and old alike to work out and learn martial arts. They teach discipline and give great self confidence. It is very entertaining to watch the very advanced spar. My son can't wait to get to that level. It is pretty pricey but if you have the money well worth it.
