From listening skills to taking turns, our program for ages 3-4 teach way more than physical skills! Your child will learn how to interact in a social setting, plus learn valuable life lessons that will help them as they grow.
There's nothing more satisfying than watching your child gain physical and social skills that you know will benefit them for life. Your little one will learn focus, self-confidence and discipline, while getting a full body work out. Martial Arts teach fantastic martial arts moves plus vital interpersonal skills.
Martial Arts is one of the best possible activities for children. They'll learn to defend themselves physically, but more importantly they'll build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges like high school, college, and becoming a healthy, balanced adult.
Jiu-Jitsu is all about real self defense that really works. You'll learn how to use leverage and technique to effectively defend from much larger, stronger opponents. Plus, you'll get healthier, feel great, and gain enormous confidence form knowing you can handle any situation.
Melt body fat, build lean muscle, and hone your body to be a real life fighting machine, all while you're taught by experienced instructors in a safe, structured class setting. But don't be fooled - this class isn't just for people who want to be fighters. It's for anyone who wants to be the best version of themselves each and every day!
Krav Maga is as "real-deal" as it gets. Krav is the official fighting system for the IDF, or Isreali Defense Force, one of the toughest and most feared fighting forces in the world. In our Krav classes, you'll learn fool-proof defenses from all kinds of attacks - even those including knives and guns.

Our programs were created for real family schedules. Convenient class times mean that kids, adults, and whole families can improve their quality of life without killing every moment of spare time.
Our positive atmosphere is contagious, and you'll know without a doubt that you're in a place where kids will learn positive habits and adults will make meaningful, lasting friendships.
All of our programs improve physical prowess, and that's important. But what's far more important is the mental and emotional benefits that our programs bring to everyday life.
Both kids and adults will gain flexibility, agility, and strength, even if they aren't athletic! They'll love it, because it's not only super fun, it’s inclusive and accommodating at every step.

We send regular anonymous surveys to our members in our program. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
Our 10 year old son has been attending the youth classes for over 2 months now. We love how well their coaches structure the classes. There is a great emphasis on building strong character and morals. At the end of every class they go over a word of the day teaching them great life lessons and values.
Incredible group of coaches and staff who have built a great mat family. When I first joined, I signed up for a two-week trial. I was so nervous, I asked my husband to accompany me until I felt comfortable enough to go on my own. I ended up signing up for a membership by the end of my first class and told my husband I didn't need him to come with me anymore. Of course, he fell in love too and joined me instantly. Everyone, from the coaches to the other students, were so welcoming I instantly felt like it was a safe space. We have made great progress, physically and in my confidence, along with great friends in the short 6 months since we joined.
The Grounds MMA Academy is the favorite choice of Bonita Springs families for their childrens’ and teens' physical, mental and emotional development. Plus there’s no better facility for adults to improve their physical health and mental wellness. Schedule a trial today!
