Columbus Martial Arts Academy Reviews

My grandson started his classes here over a year ago and he enjoys it greatly! The coaches are very involved with their students and the love and care they show for each one is highly commendable. Respect, discipline, and honor are shown from both the coaches and the students. They have high expectations and the students perform well within the home, their school, and the community. We couldn't have found a better place for him!

This has been an amazing program for not just my younger sister, but the whole family. All the coaches are really amazing and awesome. Everyone, there is dedicated to the work they do. the coaches strive for everyone to be the best person they can be. Its been great seeing my sister improve as time goes on not only in her martial arts skills but her behavior and attitude as well. Definitely an amazing program!

My son attends the summer camp here and loves it. They show a great interest in all of their students. This academy of instructors prove that dedication and loyalty is what they strive for. I'm happy to have my child attend this academy and would recommend anyone to check it out for themselves.

Columbus Mixed Martial Arts Academy is definitely the gym to go to. All of the coaches are passionate about what they do and are very professional. My first class was with Coach Matt Clay, and he taught me many techniques and was there to assist me every step along the way. It was my first class that I felt comfortable and determined to improve. The students and coaches welcomed me with open arms. I highly recommend this gym for anyone who wants to train with honor, respect, and discipline.

They offer a stable, comfortable, and fun environment to learn and practice Jiu-Jitsu in. Fantastic instructors and great adult group has made this one of my favorite gyms I've ever been in. Overall I have been very happy with this school since day one and can't wait for more!

Ultimate Youth Sports/Columbus Martial Arts Acadmey is the best after school and martial arts program! They offer so many opportunities for kids of all ages. Martial Arts is one of the best aspects about this program. It teaches children how to properly defend themselves in real life situations. I have been training jiu jitsu in this program for a little over a year now and I love it! It has truly taught me focus, discipline, and mental strength. I would have never been able to be the person I am today without Ultimate Youth Sports. :)

I have been with this academy for 10 months now. It was initially just for my 3 kids. Ranging from 5-14 years of age. I caught myself also wanting to participate so I could help my little ones practice at home and it has definitely been life changing. Great way to release stress and the comradery built is great. I would recommend this to anyone. They have all levels from beginner to veterans in the jiujitsu game. Very much a family environment.

What price can one put on their child's safety and well being? It has been wonderful to watch as our son Christian is being instructed in the manner of how to identify a stranger; more importantly what to do should one try to put hands on or harm our child. Through the training at Ultimate Youth Sports, Christian has propelled in his self-confidence & self-defense! He's receiving the life skills that we want him to have. Ultimate Youth Sports is reinforcing what he is learning at home in regards to discipline and respect, and amplifying in areas that they specialize in with the martial arts.  We love the fact that not only do they have an amazing martial arts program, but Christian is constantly engaged in all different kinds of activity during the after school & summer camp programs.  We can trust that our son is in the best hands around, with a professional staff that truly are passionate about the kid's they work with!

My daughter Jaidyn has been attending Ultimate Youth Sports for little over 4 years now and I couldn't be any happier with our experiences here. She has not only blossomed with great potential for martial arts but is developing into a very confident, motivated and dedicated child. She refuses to miss a day of training! I love the way that Ultimate Youth Sports not only focuses on the physical attributes of training but also instill leadership and discipline in the children. I definitely recommend Ultimate Youth Sports if you are looking to motivate, encourage and instill discipline in your child along with a family atmosphere; this is the place for you an your child!

I love this place!  I have 5 yr old twins, Mike and Alex who now attending this awesome program since September.  We are attending the Gentian Blvd location and my children and myself love it.  The staff is amazing!  They care so much about the kids.  I have never seen that before.  They take it very serious and make sure to teach the kids discipline, respect, and what it takes to be a "black belt".  I have the highest respect for Coach Matt, every time I have asked for help, especially in school matter, he went out of his way to help.  He runs this facility professionally and makes sure the kids and parents feel welcomed and safe.  I can only recommend it to everyone, the staff really work with you on every detail!! Thank you to the Ultimate Youth Sports team for all you do to make my life easier and make sure my children have a wonderful day!

This has been on of the best decisions I've ever made for my children.  My kids were somewhat reserved and timid in the past but with the proven and positive methods the coaching staff has provided them their confidence has grown so much farther than I would of ever imagined.  I have to say this about the coaching staff... I'm not sure how the screening process works to find these coaches but what ever it was worked.  Each and everyone of them is doing exactly what they should be doing in live.... They offer a fun filled, safe environment that offers the kids a new challenge to overcome every day.  With positive reinforcement my son in particular has become a real leader and I couldn't be more in awe of what they've created in him.  I have nothing but respect for the team at Ultimate Youth Sports and am so very grateful they've touched our family's lives.  If you're on the fence about placing your child in this program, please take my advice and do it!  Your child will grow far beyond your imagination.

Amazing coaches dedicated to helping the kids become better athletes and students!!! All the coaches are phenomenal and highly recommended! I am truly amazed at the time and dedication the entire staff takes to make every child and their entire family feel welcomed in this academy. My two sons who are 10 and 3 years old, attend Ultimate Youth Sports and enjoy it like I have never seen before. What I admire most from this academy is the way they incorporate success in the programs but most importantly in school and life. This is the first program we have put our 3 year old in because many athletic programs do not begin until the age of 4 or 5. They do such a wonderful job with the younger kids in teaching them fundamental skills, hand and eye coordination, and showing adults respect all while having fun. I also had the privilege of throwing a birthday party at this venue and they made it one of the most memorable experiences of our lives.

The increases I have noticed from my eight year old son are amazing. He is faster, has better reflexes and is no longer clumsy because his balance has improved! He really is learning as well as participating in the lessons and I’m so proud of how far he’s come in such a short time. Im very excited to see how far he will go! I appreciate the staff of Ultimate Youth Sports so much for everything they do for these kids and my son!

My 4 year old son has always been a little shy and slow to get comfortable around kids his age. Knowing school was approaching I wanted him to gain more self confidence so I enrolled him in karate classes. He was shy and unresponsive to the staff in the first few lessons. The instructors at Ultimate Youth Sports adapted their lessons to be more interactive and within a few more lessons he was comfortable around his classmates and opened up his shell! The staff is great and gives a welcoming feel that every great business should! Now I don’t feel nervous hearing about my sons day at school, instead he is focused in school and always tells me about his friends at school!

Mike R.

I was very impressed with the Instructors at Ultimate Youth Sports ability to reach the kids and keep them wanting to come back. My son loves the active pace and the dojo. Although he may not realize it he is also learning skills that he can use to his advantage to avoid bullying or aggressive confrontation.
