Welcome To The CAGE JSA!

Jiu-Jitsu & MMA • Fitness Classes • Strength Training • Kids Martial Arts


Thank you for visiting the Cage JSA!

I am excited to have you check us out!  My name is Matt Bryers, I’m one of the owners, and instructors.

So – The big question is, why should YOU come to the Cage JSA?  Great question, and where’s what I think:

Basically, you come to the Cage JSA to get better.  You walk out of here better than you were when you walked it.

  • Whether it’s learning something cool in Jiu-Jitsu or MMA…
  • Or beating the crap out of a heavy bag and sweating your ass off…
  • Or building that sexy, strong and confident body…
  • Or experience the release of physical and mental stress with Yoga…

You can do that ALL of that here.

We have some of the highest level of Jiu-Jitsu, MMA & self-defense in CT (and beyond).  There’s tons of fitness classes including combat fit, cardio kickboxing, boot-camp, spin and yoga.  We also have some of the best coaches / athletes in the world who train here on a daily basis!

We can do this because we have over 12,000 sq/f of space including start of the art fitness equipment, training mats, strength “toys”, 25+ heavy bags, and more.

I apologize if it sounds like we’re bragging, but we’re proud of what we do here – especially by our welcoming community.

And – that’s my answer to why you should come experience “what we do”.

Basically – We think it’s awesome; and we think, that you might think, that it’s awesome too.  :)

In fact, we have a free 1-week trial that lets you check us out for 7-days – NO obligation.  Just come down and see if it’s for you.

If you’re new to any of this – don’t worry – we have intro lessons and workouts to ensure that you start your journey the right way.

Thank you again for checking us out, I look forward to meeting you.
