How do we compare to other Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Madison academies?

Don't take our word, read real reviews from real people just like you in Madison, WI and surrounding areas:


"Jiu Jitsu keeps me very fit, and it keeps me motivated to do better. It also gave me my self confidence back because I was struggling with very severe depression from horrible life circumstances. It gave me a reason to keep pushing forward and now am almost 100% better than what I used to be."

"I originally found Journey BJJ offer online and got the 3-class trial offer to just try casually. I couldn't predict that I would fall in love with  the gym, the people, and the amazing workouts! It is an inclusive, welcoming environment, and that's important to me. I feel right at home. I highly recommend Journey!!!"

Marthie F

"Amazing instructors, great people! I'm 41 and I feel like I'm in better shape than I was in my 20s! Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes have helped me immensely in all areas of my life. Biggest thing is that I feel that I'm able to defend my wife, daughters, and myself if I'm ever in a confrontation. I plan to continue my training for a very long time."

"Where is your schedule of classes?"

Our schedule is slightly different for each type of class. Please enter your info into the opt in box at the top or bottom of the page to see the schedule and special offer for that given martial art.

"Will this be really hard on my body?"

Jiu Jitsu is a full-body work out. The exercise involved may challenge you at first, but we’ll always encourage you to go at your own pace 🙂 So you may get a little bit sore at first, but the exercise should never cause injury or health issues.

"How much do your classes cost?"

Our drop in per class fee is $20, however, we often run an online-only special for trial classes. If you decide to sign up after the trial, it will work very much like a Yoga or Gym membership. We have 6+ different membership plans to fit every budget, and we go over those in detail when we sit down with you after your first trial class.

  • Non-Madison Area residents (commute > 30 minutes to the gym)

"Do I need to be in shape or athletic? Do I need any prior experience?"

Not at all! Many of our current students NEVER did any kind of sports or martial arts prior to joining. Now, they’re in better shape than most of their friends. So if you’re not in shape or athletic, don’t worry – we’ll get you there in no time.

"Can I just drop by and talk to someone?"

We’ve got a small staff and we like to stay organized 🙂 In order to insure that there’s someone to answer your questions when you show up, please let us know when you’re coming by calling 608-416-1140. Otherwise, we cannot ensure you’ll be helped and you may not be able to get into a class that day.
