This place is the best.
I had the pleasure of training Muay Thai under Jarrett for about two years. He's an absolute bad-ass and an excellent teacher who makes classes fun and challenging. During that time, I was in the best shape of my life. I felt like I had shaved 5 years off my age. If you're considering training at Revolution Ashland, stop thinking about it and just sign up! -Chris Lynch
I am currently finishing my BJJ intro course and overall, it has been an excellent experience. Jarrett is a great instructor who makes every lesson simple and fun at the same time. I'm looking forward to starting the next level of my BJJ training next month.
I signed up for the Brazilian Jujitsu intro class and have since enrolled in further classes. It’s been an eye opening, fun, and super healthy addition to my life. Meeting some good people and learning some valuable self defense too. I highly recommend these guys.
I loved the Muay Thai Kickboxing intro class. Equally tough and fun, the instructors broke down complicated combos into manageable pieces. Being able to work with the more advanced students showed how far we could take the practice. This is a great place to train.
I participated in the Introduction to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class taugh by Jarrett. He is an amazing teacher and coach. It is clear that Jarrett has the utmost concern for each person's safety and wants them to learn as much as they can. Moreover, I am not as athletic as many of the other students, but Jarrett found ways to modify movements when I lacked the mobility to get there. What a great experience!
When I first started training at Revolution BJJ Ashland I was right at the 240 lbs mark and wearing a size 42 waist. I've had a gym memberships for over 10 years now and was still at the exact same place weight wise. In the 3 months training with Jarrett, Gina and Keith I am down to 218 lbs and still dropping, down to a size 38 and even that's a little loose and feeling better than I have in a long time. Unlike the dread of going to the gym, I actually enjoy showing up to train. The comradery and guidance of the classes is like a personal trainer, group fitness and martial arts all in one! It's motivated me to make smarter food choices knowing I better show up fueled and ready. Jarrett, Gina and Keith, along with all the members, have created a really fun, challenging and exciting environment where a 34 year old dad can walk in and feel at home without any judgement or pressure to do or be someone you're not yet stretch you enough out of your comfort zone to make you a better version of you today than you were yesterday. Love this place. Come check it out!
After being disappointed at a Mc Dojo, I did more research and found Revolution. I talked to Jarrett and signed up for the 8 week Muay Thai Intro. The first night, Gina said to the group "If you're looking for Cardio-Kickboxing, you're at the wrong place. We teach you how to fight here." I thought to myself, 'Here is where I should have been all along.' Five weeks in and I've already joined up to continue after Intro. The instructors are dedicated and energetic and make it fun as well as challenging. It is hard work but very satisfying. The experienced students have been a huge help as well, and I try to thank each of them for passing on the knowledge every class. It feels genuine here, unlike the 'Belt Factory' that I left. Thanks a lot, Revolution...can't wait to see where this takes me.
