There is no place in or nearby Roanoke that provides level of martial art & self-defense instruction that Street Jitsu does. There are so many classes and times available to meet most any need. The instructors are knowledgable and friendly. I've been able to learn Jiu Jitsu and wrestling at my own pace and schedule. its great! You really can't beat the value for what you receive.- Brent C.

My family has been profoundly affected by street jiu jitsu. We have been blessed to be fortunate enough to be part of such a great place. So much so that when I attend, the whole family attends, the training exceeds that of just jiu jitsu, and my children have been influenced in a positive way. Nothing can remove the skills and experiences we have acquired with coach Dennis. -Alejandro M.

My kids and I love training together with your instructors. Meeting us at our home is so convenient with 4 kids.- Kaitlin S.
 
Since my son has started the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program, he has developed so many positive skills that he can encompass on a daily basis. I am very proud of my son for the way he now presents himself. I truly believe the Jiu-Jitsu program has made my son a better person. He has learned to stay focused more at home and also in the classroom; he has more self-confidence in himself with routine tasks and obstacles that may come his way; and he has become more respectful of himself and others, including his younger sister. He has also learned to take responsibility for his own actions and own up to any mistakes he makes.- Teresa T.
 
Dennis,
I am extremely happy with the way things are going with the Mixed Martial Arts instruction. You are a great teacher and I know I would not have come this far if I did not enjoy you and your sessions as much as I do. I respect you, like you and learn from you. What more could I want from a teacher?- Jason F.

Due to a rigorous work schedule and unpredictable hours, I have always found it difficult to attend MMA classes with any consistency. When I discovered Street-Jitsu, offering private training at my home and sessions that work around my schedule, I knew it was perfect for me.

My son and I are having a great time training with Vince. We are training twice a week and I really feel like both my standup game and my BJJ game are making major strides. I find myself eating better, feeling healthier, and definitely have improved my endurance, and lost a few lbs. I am constantly looking forward to my next training session and my passion for jiu-Jitsu has been re-ignited. I have also been amazed at how much my 5 yr old son has picked up. Vince is very patient with him and a great instructor. Street-Jitsu has exceeded my expectations in every way!- David S., MD
 
 
I started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with Dennis Thomas from Street Jitsu a few months ago and he has brought my game to a whole different level. Everyone at the gym I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with has told me how rapidly my skills have improved and I accredit that to the great instruction I have received from Dennis. Training with Street Jitsu has drastically improved my skills as a martial artist and I am happy with the progress that I have made and will make in the future. Thank you Street Jitsu and Dennis for all that you have done for me.- Simon B.
 
We love being a part of your team!! These classes have changed my kids for the better and we have you to thank.- Anita S.
 
Hey Dennis, I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to join your gym. I wish I started 20 years ago but your gym helped jump start my weight loss, which I don't know if I would have been able to lose otherwise. I now have lost 44 pounds and my goal is to drop another 46. Again thank you and have a Happy New Year!!!- Daniel S.
