Since my son John started the Guardian After School Program, we have seen major improvements in his grades as well as his attendance. He has had perfect attendance since starting at Guardian. His confidence has soared and his teachers have started complimenting him on his attention and ability to work with others. Thank you to all the caring staff at Guardian MMA!

Since I started training at Guardian, I have not only made gains physically by losing close to 50 lbs but I have gained a new found confidence. Everyone there, staff and members are so friendly and encouraging and make me feel so comfortable. Thank you to everyone there!!! I wouldn’t have accomplished all I have without a great place like Guardian.

I am so pleased with the quality of the Guardian after-school care! The staff is highly qualified and is really invested in my daughter’s success both at their facility and in other areas of her life. I feel like we are a team that works together to ensure that her experiences are authentic and positive. I highly recommend their programs and classes!

Since I started training at Guardian MMA, I have been attending BJJ classes on a regular basis. Because of the programs here I have found confidence in myself as well as made a lot of friends in the process. Every day I do Jiu Jitsu, I notice myself improving on the mat, along with becoming an overall better person. I’d like to thank every one of my coaches for complimenting me and supporting me as a student here. Also, I’d like to thank God and my parents for letting me have the opportunity to do this. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without them.
