Definitely the place to be training if you want both a family atmosphere and top rate instruction!, Profs Igor and Natasha are world class black belts that understand what it means to, not just be part of, but serve their community!

I visited this academy on a work trip and was looking for a place to stay active while on the road. They were very inviting and friendly. The students were all very welcoming and the rolls were friendly, yet with sound training and I could tell this was a solid academy with great instructors. I hope to be back on my next visit and encourage anyone to try this place out if you are in the area.

My son has been attending the toddler class 3 weeks now, and we love it. The instructors are simply awesome they show each child individual attention, and make sure they all understand what's going on. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking to practice martial arts. Great place! :)

Best possible place you could ever want to go for boxing or jujitsu for adults or children. The owners are not only true professionals and champions, They are also amazing people who treat everything go person who walks through their doors with respect. They have become some of the best friends I have had in my life and they teach skills that could very well save lives.

My son has been going to this school for few months now and we couldn't be happier with the instructors. Igor and Natasha are great with the kids and really care about their students. We had our son in a martial arts class in abacoa and it didn't even compare to this, I wish we hadn't wasted our time. They actually push the kids to get better and challenge them to reach their potential while still being kind. You won't find better instructors or a better atmosphere anywhere else.

Great academy for kids. Found the instructors to be very good at teaching kids of all ages. PBGMA is where all kids are treated with respect and no-nonsense training. If you are looking to enrich your child in Brazilian jiu-jitsu this is the place to start. (Just one dads perspective)

Palm Beach Gardens Martial Arts is a great place to train solo or with your family. Me and my son have been going there for approximately 3 weeks and we are learning so much, and I'm already down 10 lbs since starting. Professor Igor Almeida walks you through every movement before having you drill the technique and he has Q&A during the demonstration and at the end of class so you can walk out of class with no unanswered questions. Natasha Quiza De Almeida who is a highly trained purple belt and also assist Professor Almeida, does an excellent job with the adult class as well as making the kids class fun and entertaining so they don't loose interest during class. There are so many martial arts gyms out there that you end up just being a number but at Palm Beach Gardens Martial Arts you feel like family from day one.

After having tried out 3 other schools to train jiu jitsu this was the most welcoming and least intimidating of them all. They welcome you with open arms, they listen to what you want out of training, and they help you achieve your goals. Natasha and Igor are extremely helpful and knowledgable in what they do and have their students' best interest at heart. They know how to have fun while training hard and they are entirely motivating. One of the best decisions I've made was to train with Natasha and Igor.

If you want to go train somewhere that instantly makes you feel welcome and encourages you to do your best, this is the place. Igor and Natasha treat you like family and genuinely care you and the team as a whole encourages you to do your best and they push you to keep going when they see you want to give up. Extremely personable, highly encouraging, and they will make you work. Best decision I've made for myself this year.

I love this place! Joining this gym has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. No matter what your age is or what fitness level you're at, there's something for you here. Igor and Natasha are the very best, providing not only expert training, but also the support and encouragement to help you be your very best - on the mat and off. Come try it!

Being out of the game for some time, I was pleased to be so accepted here in training with Igor and Natasha. Having a great group of advanced practitioners to train with is a real benefit. My first class at PBGMA, was taught by Igor, but the training group also included another black belt, two brown belts, a purple belt and three other blues. Great training environment! In a short time I have learned so much. I look forward to continuing my bjj journey here.

I dropped in while traveling for business and took a class with coach Natasha. Great instruction and very welcoming! Highly recommended...looking forward to visiting again!

I'm a huge fan! Igor and Natasha run things beautifully...they make the children's lessons fun and appropriate without coddling or being overly harsh. I believe that, in this day and age, most kids don't really get taught the meaning of respect. They miss out on the basics of discipline, and the rewards that come from hard work. These are lessons that kids indeed learn when they take lessons at Palm Beach Gardens Martial Arts and it helps them keep in shape, too. This business is a huge benefit to families and to our area!

Awesome school great family and team environment. Professor Igor Almeida and his wife Natasha Almeida they are really great instructors. I highly recommend this school for all level Jiu-Jitsu MMA or Muy Thai Kickboxing practitioners, great women’s self-defense classes and great with the kids.

Perhaps the most telling barometer for how a school operates on a daily basis is how they treat their visitors. I was in town early last year and dropped by there the school. Not only did Igor Almeida took the time to talk with me and provide superb instruction, but his students was every bit as gracious with their time and hospitality.

The science behind the technique is everything you would imagine, but the code of honor and respect flows from the top down. My experience rolling with the students at the school was a wonderful combination of healthy competition, coupled with excellent feedback on my game and suggestions on how to improve it.

And as someone with the most remedial of BJJ skills, I can assure you: This place is perfect for students of all skill levels. They matched the students with a higher belt to learn the techniques and then made sure they interacted and rolled with a variety of students across the belt spectrum. The takeaway being: everyone here comes to learn and get better, regardless of belt color.

If you are someone looking for a place to train while out in Palm Beach Gardens, you would do well to stop right here. Because when you get the chance to learn from and train with world class INSTRUCTORS, you'd be stupid not to take the opportunity to do so.

Every time I go down south Florida that’s the school I return and strongly encourage you to do the same.

My twins love this place! They get so excited to go everyday. We love that it is a family run business and the instructors are so good with the kids. The price is awesome because you get a 50% discount for every additional child. I can't wait to get my youngest signed up when he is of age.

I am surprised how quickly my son is progressing. It is amazing that they are able to get a 3 year old boy to focus for half an hour.

Update: My son is now 4, and my 2.5 year old daughter is now in the class too. The class is a lot of fun, and the kids look forward to it.

As a parent, I am extremely pleased with Palm Beach Gardens Martial Arts. I visited many schools in Palm Beach County and as soon as I observed one class, I knew I found a place for my son. The instructors are highly skilled and passionate. They manage to teach kids of all ages with varying attention spans. My son is gradually coming out of his shell and his confidence is being built as he has found something he loves. I also love the wonderful sense of community and how welcoming the other parents are. I'm so glad I found Palm Beach Gardens Martial Arts.

Master Igor and Miss Natasha are wonderful Jiu Jitsu instructors. If you are looking for a structured, physical activity for your kids that emphasizes respect and good sportsmanship, look no further than PBGMA! My kids have been attending for the last two years and have received patient and consistent instruction from day one.

I came to PBGMA with my son about a year ago. Being a single mother, I was having a hard time with allowing him to grow up and stand up for himself. When he started at PBGMA, he was very shy. He would constantly shut down when things didn't go his way, but he pushed forward with the help of Natasha and Igor. They have a way of working with the kids that I have never seen before...and I was a preschool teacher for 10 years! Jiu Jitsu is about respect, honor, and confidence. Above all else, they stress this to the children. Two months after having my son in jiu jitsu, I got an email from his 1st grade teacher that said: "I am seeing such improvement in his behavior, concentration level, and self-confidence. Whatever you are doing with him, Keep it up!" I attribute it to the amazing work Igor and Natasha do.

My son has competed in 2 competitions, he lost the first one (badly), but chose to push through and compete again! This is one happy Momma and I will be bringing him to PBGMA for a very long time! They are family now!

Best gym ever! What a great place, with a great family atmosphere, dedicated to helping you achieve your goals! Something for everyone at almost any age. Qualified and experienced, professional trainers. I live over an hour away and haven't found a workout that compares. I am thrilled to be do conditioning classes, via FaceTime, from home. Highly recommend this gym for anyone. Whether beginning, experienced or just looking for something new! You won't find another place to push you, keep you motivated or encourage you in your goals! Truly a gem/gym.

Love this place. It's become a second home for my son and I. We practice as much as possible and from day one have been welcomed into the PGMA family. Can't recommend it strongly enough. Master Igor and Professor Natasha are wonderful and patient teachers. Thank you for bringing us into your JuJitsu family.

Amazing gym with top notch instructors that care about your progress not only physically but as a person. I've been training there for a little over 3 years and I've accomplished far more than I ever thought possible. I've grown as a martial artist but more importantly as a person. They for sure are a part of my extended family that I know will always be there when needed.
