Testimonials –

“I’ve trained in martial arts for most of my life and have trained with various trainers including Renzo Gracie and Ricardo Almeida and in my opinion, the level of teaching that I’ve experienced at IBJJA, with James Clingerman is probably the best so far. Very few instructors can explain the whys and reasons techniques work. James is what I call a teacher’s teacher. He can break down a move and explain why you do it and why it works. On top of the teaching you get from James, the level of talent that is always on the mats is some of the best training partners I could ever ask for. I am glad to be a part of the IBJJA family, and a family is exactly what makes a team successful, on and off the mat.”

“IBJJA was the first school I checked out here in Indiana after moving from Michigan. Just from my initial meeting with James, I knew I had found the right school to continue my BJJ training. Then I met AJ… After that I was sold! James is a great instructor and teacher. He is very thorough in explaining the techniques, extremely helpful and always encouraging. Being one of the few women that does the training here, I have truly felt like one of the “guys” and everyone is very welcoming. Most importantly, training BJJ has contributed to many great changes in my health, self-esteem and mental being. Thank you guys!!!!”

“I absolutely adore the IBJJA. James, Max, and AJ make the environment fun to learn in. I enjoy training here because it feels like a family here. Everyone is polite and anxious to help. I know if I needed anything, Jiu Jitsu wise or life wise, AJ and James would help. This place has greatly improved my life. I’ve lost 20 pounds and I have a hobby and escape from my stressful job.!”

“I think the programs works great! The atmosphere is great, classmates are awesome! Before I started coming to IBJJA I was actually scared to defend myself. I would always back down or even take a beating. But after I started these classes I have learned not to be afraid and not to back down in emergencies. Thanks to James and Max, I can now defend myself and I believe these classes made me a better person. So I guess what I’m trying to say is Thank you so much Max Burt and James Clingerman for all you have done to help me. Thank you!”

“After training wrestling and winning my first 3 amateur fights, I thought I was awesome! My first session at the IBJJA was the most humbling experience of my life… I was tapped, taken down, and beaten up standing by everyone (not just James)! After training under James, I have not only become a better fighter, but a better man. The instruction and training partners are second to no gym within 100 miles. I know; I have tried them all! Keep Training and Work Hard!”
