Great Place to Train
I've trained BJJ at several academys and can say that I've never had as much personal attention from an instructor as with Mr Haben. Excellent teacher, many programs offered (including stand-up and MMA), nice facility, and great students to train with. Easy to get to with added bonus in that those of us living in the Stone Oak / Canyon Springs area can drive north instead of into traffic after work. I highly recommend checking it out.
|I highly recommend this academy! Being a female in a primarily male program, I feel very comfortable working with the instructor and other students. Mr. Haben is great about adapting each individual's instruction to their skill and physical levels. He is also great with the children's class. The kids have fun and are active while learning valuable martial arts and self-defense skills.|
