I've been training at Affinity Academy for just over 1 year. Every class is without a doubt one of the most rewarding experiences I am fortunate enough to participate in, every chance I get. The safe, positive environment reflects the values and passion of the family ownership, staff, and the members. A passionate, respectful culture of support and constant improvement is ingrained in the Academy. I cannot speak highly enough of Affinity to effectively convey the experience...you need to come for a visit and see for your it for yourself! You'll be back.

My experience at Affinity Academy has been amazing. You will receive instruction that is detailed, methodical, patient and immediately applicable. The people you will meet here are some of the highest quality human beings you could hope to meet. The atmosphere is fun, supportive, and very much like family. If you are looking for world class training in the gentle art of Jiu Jitsu then Affinity Academy is the place for you!

Everything is AWESOME! I have seen a big confidence boost in both of my girls since they have started classes here and I would recommend this gym for anyone thinking of trying something new for their kids or themselves. This gym provides a safe, friendly and clean environment to practice BJJ where everyone is treated with respect.

A great environment that quickly becomes your family. They have so many different programs that there truly is something for everyone of all ages and skill set. I have learned so much at this school in such a short time and it is the direct effect of good people, in a good place, all doing something we feel very strongly for. Would recommend Affinity Academy to anyone thinking of starting the sport.

I currently have 2 kids in the jujitsu program at Affinity and couldn't ask for a better introduction for them both to martial arts. The coaches are excellent at engaging with young children and the other members have been very welcoming. Has very quickly become the favourite activity for both my kids and I believe the technical skills and the character lessons taught to them there will benefit them greatly as they grow. I would highly recommend this gym and these coaches to anyone looking for a BJJ program for their sons or daughters.

What can I say about Affinity, that hasn't already been said?!
It's amazing! I love it. The instructors are awesome, very knowledgable, approachable and just all round good people. A friend convinced me to come try, although to be honest I have always wanted to learn bjj so it really didn't take much convincing at all, and as soon as I stepped on the mats and tried my first class, I was hooked.
The people at Affinity treat you like family, the sr. belts are always more than willing to slow down and show you proper form and technique.
I could go on for ever, but will just say this,I definitely have zero regrets about joining and I plan to train for years to come!

Thank you Affinity Academy for making me feel welcome, and guiding me down this new path in life!

I started BJJ at the Affinity Academy in February. It was a challenge for me to get started because I was afraid and quite anxious. It was something completely new to me and I thought maybe I wouldn't be strong or "tough" enough to join. From my very first class until now, everyone has been so welcoming and very supportive with one another. The Academy is a very positive and family friendly environment. Our Sensei's Andell and Clifton are professional and very knowledgeable of this art. Classes are well structured and quite challenging, which keeps me coming back for more. BJJ is beginning to change my life in many ways. I take pride in being a part of this team. I will be forever grateful and will continue to be humble learning this gentle art.

My daughter started about 3 months ago and I think she's doing really well. That's because of the amazing instruction and, most importantly for her age, other children who are very welcoming and friendly.
