Cost for Classes

Cage JSA Prices

We focus on providing you incredible service and training at a fair price. No contracts. No BS. Just great training.

Our goal at Cage JSA is to provide you with everything you need to learn and excel at Jiu-jitsu, learn how to fight and get stronger & in-shape.

Cage JSA is a 13,000 sq/f facility featuring a martial arts training area, our strength gym and our fitness room. We offer classes 7-days week that include Combat Jiu-Jitsu, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Strength & Performance.

Cage JSA was founded by me, Matt Bryers, a jiu-jitsu instructor, jiu-jitsu student, strongman training instructor, competitor and someone who has a strong desire to work with others and help them improve their lives physically and mentally.

My goal for Cage JSA was to create an environment that I wanted to train in and be a part of. I wanted to create a school where anyone could enjoy and learn jiu-jitsu and discover the amazing benefits of physical activity.

The 1-Week Trial

There’s one thing we suggest every new potential client / student – come experience it for yourself (for FREE)!

This gives you the opportunity to see what we have to offer and gives us an opportunity to see if you’re right for Cage JSA. We want to train with amazing people who inspire, challenge and help the Cage JSA family grow.

So – just come down, take a week of unlimited training, and see what you think! No obligations at all.

We also have dedicated Fundamentals Classes for those who are just starting out.
