We have been part of the DSMA school for years. My son and I both enjoy the classes offered at the school. Mr. T and his DSMA Team will evolve your children into champions both on and off the mat. Our son has become stronger mentally, physically, and socially. Each team member has strong coaching abilities and will guide each student to become the best of their abilities.

A good friend of mine had been training here and brought me down to take a free class. I was always interested in jiu-jitsu but didn't know much about it. I took a free class and had a blast. I am training here just over one year and I love it. Being an attorney, I sit all day and love and appreciate the great work out. I even starting competing in tournaments have done really well, far exceeding my expectations. I love Marcos' classes and the great bunch of guys I train with.

We love this school! My daughter was having a problem focusing in school and also needed to improve her discipline. Our neighbors have been telling us about Dragon Spirit for years and we finally decided to check it out. After four months we already see a huge improvement in Maria. She absolutely loves going. Every day she asks me, "Mommy is today karate?" She has also lost a few pounds and is so much more confident. Her teacher, Mr. T. is constantly encouraging her. The rest of the staff is also great.

I read the myriad reviews posted on this site and decided to visit this place myself. It is abundantly clear that those who trash this school are obviously competitors. This place is one of the best run dojos I have been to, and I have been involved in the martial arts for over 30 years. I went with a certain bias based on the negative reviews and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent instruction being given. The prices were also fair for the value that you get. What other school lets children take class six days a week for $129 per month? They offered me a free trial week. If they were hiding something, why would they let me try it out for a week for free. After the week was over, I eagerly joined. It turns out this school has several hundred members. Can all of these people not be satisfied? Jealousy is a terrible thing. When you are the true leader, people will attack you. Go see for yourself why this school is so popular. It is an awesome place.

Well I was going to the gym for about 2 years now and from hard work i lost 30 pounds but the work outs just got boring.I was walking past dragon spirit and asked about taking the women's class kru Jeff told me that he could make my work out fun and different and for me not to worry well it has been 2 months now and I haven't lost any weight I actually put on 10 pounds . I decided to tell kru Jeff my concerns and he explained to me that I have signed a 1 year contract .so now I'm paying for dsm and a reg gym 2 times more then I wanted to pay all I was looking for was a fun way to lose weight and I got stock with a one year contract to a gym thats worthless to me

i agree with john c ! i toke time and actually stopped by this place and its nothing special. $200 a month is crazy i recommend doing your research and actually getting some quilty training where it doesn't burn a whole in your pocket.

p.s.i would also recommend a place that doesn't write their own review right (richard d) now u tell me its not then ?

Dragon Spirit has become a second home to me. I have never experienced the quality of instruction both in jiu-jitsu and in kickboxing as I get here. The instructors are top notch, classes are offered seven days a week, and the facility is amazing. I checked out quite a few other schools before choosing Dragon Spirit. I am really glad I decided to join. I will be a member for a long, long time.

this school is a joke! First let me start off with the cost they charge 170 a month and to join the fitness classes its an extra $30 so now you are paying $200 a month, its just flat out ridiculous! you can go to any school and pay way less then that, then i come to find out the bjj teacher is not even a black belt. If im paying 200 a month i would like to be thought with someone who has experience!not 3 years in. Now let me tell you about the thai classes first i went on to their web site and look up the teacher if you read this description they mention everything that he does in his life (like golfing) etc.ln his muay thai back round if you actually take time to look up his so called credentials you wont be able to find nothing about his back round no teachers who he says he trained with. no fights (that he supposedly says he fought)these were his saleing points !so to finish off this thread i also didn't like the fact that i was watching the class too see if i would wanna join and it was a complete turn off when one of kru students said he was getting fat and he turn around and grabs his crotch and says me to !so this is my experience to this place i wouldnt join there if you payed me !thanks but no thanks

This school has been a tremendous experience. My kids joined almost two years ago and they still love it. They have learned so much, not just about self-defense and exercise, but crucial life skills that will stay with them forever. I started taking Kru Jeff's fitness class in February and have already lost 22 pounds! I haven't felt this great since high school soccer. Highly recommend this school to everyone.

I have been working out for along time. I decided to join because I wanted to do something different and needed new motivation. I joined their women's class. Kru Jeff stated that if I did this class two times a week I would see a drastic change and would definately be "cut."

Well I busted my ankle in the class (never busted it before).
I have lost a little weight, but I did not need to lose, but more to tone (don't see the improvement at all in my tone).

Maybe I need to keep at it, but have been in this class for 4 months :( When am I going to see the "drastic change!" At this rate I rather go back to being ina gym... but unfortunately I have to wait for my year contract to end... :( ( it was cheaper for what I am paying now!!)

I've been to many different Brazilian JiuJitsu (BJJ) schools across the area, and never found one that really had what I was looking for. When I walked into the Ridge Road school I was instantly greeted with a smile and a handshake. Mr. T and Marcos worked with me to find classes that fit my schedule, and I now train 3 days per week. I also liked that the school was very clean, neat and orderly.

Marcos is one of the most professional BJJ teachers I've ever met. He knows his art like the back of his hand, and teaches it with clarity and conviction. I've dropped 30 lbs in the 3 months I've been training there, and my wife loves it; as do I! I've never been in better shape in my life! Thank you Dragon Spirit Martial Arts!

Most amazing school I have ever been to. Not only are the staff kind and professional, they're goal truly is to get me to my goals. In the first six months of attending and Jeff's Muay Thai classes, I completely kicked my smoking habit all together, I learned new and healthier ways of eating, and hit my short term goal weight of 135 lbs.

I have been training at DS MMA, not even 3 months and have shedded 26 pounds, received a promotion at work and met my my future wife! I blame DS for my current happiness:) The Quality of the school, and instructors are of the highest calibre. The owner Mr T, is very lucky to have 2 of the finest, funniest, highly skilled martial artists/teachers in Kru Jeff and Marcos! Jeff sings and Marcos dances, absolutley classic crew.

This school is amazing! My son(6 years old) cannot wait to get to this place, 4 times a week! "i have a life too, little buddy"
"i am your life" he replies :). The funny thing is, this is martial
arts, character development, fun and games all in one. Mr. T, the head owner and children's instructor is PHENOMENAL with the kids. It is truly an honor to sit in and absorb the messages he bestows onto the kids. He's actually teaching me how to better communicate with my own kids. A diffrent way other than the yelling and spanking. Dont know much about the adult program, however the kid's program is truly super!

My two kids, Jonathan and Elena, love going to this school. It is not only great exercise for them, but the instructors are always giving them good lessons about life and character building. The karate is also excellent. They are doing so much better in school and never complain about boredom any more. They also have become so disciplined. I am grateful to Mr. T and the rest of the great staff.

Not at all recommended. Not a safe place at all. The Authorities should take some action to stop these folks from running this center. You could see kids getting hurt , bumping to each other with bleeding gums, a big mirror possing a theat to the safety of the kids.. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF SIGNING UP YOUR KIDS HERE.

be warned, you could get tricked in to a one year contract and if you want to stop your kid attending their classes due to safety concerns or some thing else you will be forced to pay for the entire year! I dodnot think this is a safe place to send your kids. You could see kids getting hurt as they run around a small confined area and bump in to each other. Do not even think of signing up your kid in this place-for your kid's sake.

I joined this school for the workout in September. I have lost over 30 lbs in the Cardio Kickboxing class and feel Great! Marcos is a terrific instructor; really patient, caring, and kind. I have also made some great friends in this class. If you want to get a great workout and have fun doing it, Dragon Spirit with Marcos is the place.

This school rocks! My kids are getting awesome in martial arts. I can't believe what they have learned in six months. Mr. Tuccino is amazing with kids. His inspirational messages have made me start working out, reading more, and eating better. This guy ought to be on TV! Highly recommend this academy!

My son was very often a discipline problem and his teacher recommended Dragon Spirit. Mr. T, his teacher at Dragon Spirit, has helped him to build up his confidence, his self-esteem, and has improved his attitude tremendously. I highly recommend this school to any parent.

My child has been attending this school for over three years now and it has been a wonderful experience. We intially brought him to karate to build up his discipline and self-confidence. Boy has it worked! His grades have improved tremendously, he is respectful, and he has learned to defend himself. Mr. T (the head instructor) is great with children and has not only taught my son, but has served as a role model and inspiration to him. We will continue to go to this school and highly recommend it to everyone.
