Boost In Confidence

Learning new skills and trying out new techniques is challenging! But when you persevere in the face of a challenge, and come out on top, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you ever thought possible!

Realizing this makes you feel more confident. You feel more sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way too. Both kids and adults feel their self-esteem and confidence soar quickly!

“Great instruction, great people and very welcoming.”
“Just enrolled my 13 year old son...awesome place. Great instruction, great people and very welcoming. Great place for people of all sizes, shapes and backgrounds to learn BJJ and other Martial Arts. Prof. Jim is super responsive and a genuinely caring teacher. If you or your child is interested in Martial Arts, I highly recommend giving Tenbears a try!!”

“A growth-minded, competitive environment like this one draws great students, and makes for an excellent experience.”
“Professor Jim and all the coaches make the environment very welcoming and positive. It’s a high energy workout, and everyone is encouraged to learn at their own pace. If you put in the work, the coaches and other students will more than meet you halfway- everyone who comes to class has something to offer, and you’ll learn from your mat mates just as much as from Jim and the coaches. A growth-minded, competitive environment like this one draws great students, and makes for an excellent experience. Challenge yourself and give it a shot.”

“This has been an excellent opportunity to develop my skills, physical endurance, and mental acuity.”
“I have been training at Tenbears for almost two years and the experience has been great! I am fortunate to have found a place with such good people to train with after moving to Dayton in early 2013. I train here about three days a week and my Brazilian Jiu-jitsu has really advanced. Also, I occasionally join in with the Muay Thai classes. Though I am not a regular competitor, I have competed in grappling tournaments and trained along with competitors of BJJ, MMA and Muay Thai. This has been an excellent opportunity to develop my skills, physical endurance, and mental acuity. I recommend Tenbears to anyone looking for martial arts training and instruction without the ego and intimidation that might be found at other academies.”

“Tenbears Academy is where my heart calls home for martial arts, it took me coming here to realize that the greatest friends of mine were here all along. A wonderful place to train and get in shape for whatever your reason may be and not only do they push you to be great, they're there when you need a shoulder to lean on, I love this place!”
