He was voted “Best of the Best” among Jiu-Jitsu instructors in a worldwide poll in 2005!

Expert Coaches

Are you a parent, looking for some backup teaching your child about discipline and respect and personal courage? Or are you an adult; looking for an amazing workout that’s not boring like the gym, and will give you powerful self defense at the same time?

Then Gracie Jiu-Jitsu taught at Top Level Martial Arts is the answer for you. 

Since 2010, Top Level Martial Arts has helped thousands of people with those exact problems. 

I’ve seen kids come in who couldn’t stand still. By the time they were done with their training here, they understood the value of discipline and focus. Shy kids, who were afraid to raise their hands in class at school have gone on to be outgoing leaders in their grades. 

Our adult members have shed pounds, grown more confident, and learned how to protect themselves and their families. 

This is why I have made the mission of Top Level Martial Arts “To present Gracie Jiu-Jitsu as the tool for improving lives in our community.”

My name is Bill Jones, the owner and Head Instructor here at TLMA! And I am personally inviting you to try out jiu-jitsu and see how it can help you and your family, as it’s done for so many before you.

About our culture


The culture of Top Level Martial Arts is unlike anything you’ve experienced in the past. 

Your children will be led by example, not by fear. You won’t find instructors barking orders or treating them as though they just enlisted. Instead, their instructors will meet them on their level and set clear expectations for behavior. Your children will understand that they are accountable for their actions and we’ve found this to be the best way to build children into leaders. 

The adult members describe it as “Cheers!” It’s the place you go to unwind, blow off some steam, meet amazing people, and get a good workout in. Come for the Self Defense and Workout, stay for the people and friendships. It’s not uncommon for members to sit in our lounges or locker rooms and just talk for a while after class.
