MEMBERSHIP SPECIAL • FAMILY DEAL AVAILABLE Bluffton, SC
Visited from out of town and as soon as I walked in this gym, everyone made me feel like family! Even stayed after and rolled a few more and had some great Jiu Jitsu conversations! This gym is all about learning from each other and that is huge when I'm looking for somewhere to train! Can't wait to go back Thursday!

The team members may working out fun. They are considerate of a person's age and abilities and works with them within the range of what that person should be or could be doing. A great place to get and keep fit.
Riptide Martial Arts is an impressive facility that is admirably run. As a young woman participating in martial arts there are certain things I look for in a gym, and amongst those are cleanliness and professionalism, Professor John exceeded my expectations. The gym is clean, classes are well organized and impressively conducted. John's knowledge and experience with martial arts and fitness is vast and this is evident in his teaching. He is professional, patient and attentive to differing levels of experience among students. I have been doing jiu jitsu for years at many gyms and I was very impressed with how he runs his business. In addition, the fitness classes are rigorous and provide a fun interactive workout. 10/10 would recommend!

I live in Atlanta, where I'm a member of Unit 2 Fitness. This past week, I've been staying at an AirBnb on Hilton Head Island. In order to continue training, I attended the Fight Fit class at 8:30 AM on Monday at RipTide. First of all, I found the facility and space to be quite nice. I've been to about five different fight gyms now, and this is the cleanest and nicest one I've been to so far. The exercise was fun and challenging. I would definitely schedule to take the class again next time I'm in the area.

A great place for children my son loves the classes in addition to learning respect and much more than self defense.
A great gym for people of all ages, backgrounds, and ability levels.
Riptide has impressive facilities and very competitive rates. Instructors are knowledgeable and their teaching style makes it easy to learn. A wide variety of classes are offered. As a law enforcement officer, my goal is to gain practical skills that are applicable off the mat. I highly recommend Riptide MMA.

Great gym, super clean (I am a germaphobe so that is uber important for me, plus with the mat oriented classes is so important) and John is a great teacher! Loved the krav maga self defense class💖👍😃!!
I do Jiu Jitsu there. Coaches John, Joe, and Kyle are very good at explaining things. The training partners are really cool. My positional skills, takedowns, and leg lock game has gotten way better since I started around a year ago.
John is a great coach and runs a really great gym. I attend the Fitness classes and it's always a good time!

These folks are were very accommodating. We are from out of town on vacation and my daughter has an up coming BJJ tournament coming up. They were graceful enough to let her train with them. They are very knowledgeable and have great students. They even invited us back to train with them over the weekend. Thank you very much. She had a great time.
I really enjoyed the mat time... good training and good people at Riptide..!
So I’ve been participating in the kickboxing class for Parkinson’s to support my husband who was diagnosed two years ago. I thought it was just for him but I’ve benefitted as well. The owner/instructor and his assistant instructors are incredible. I am improving physically, mentally and spiritually from these classes. I’d really like to try the regular fitness classes and or martial arts. John can you make that happen? If you’re looking for a great workout and superior instruction come to Riptide MMA Academy.

We visited tonight while on vacation and the kids wanted to get in a training session. Coach John was very welcoming and treated the kids like they were his regular students. I would definitely recommend this school. We will be back next year when we visit again.

The owner of the gym has fought and trained with some of the best in the world. Our JiuJitsu professor is a multiple time world champion with more to come. Direct affiliates with RCJ Machado JiuJitsu. Excellent variety of classes, schedules, and incredible instructors to help you learn and obtain a healthier lifestyle. Been there for almost a full year now and no turning back.
I will be going back again. Cant say enough good things about this place and the people. .
It's been great for my kids and for me and my husband as well.
I highly recommend this place.

We stopped by Riptide this morning so Suzanne could do a Rock Steady Boxing class. John and Carter were so welcoming and couldn’t have been nicer ! Highly recommend Riptide MMA !
Great place to train! Great instructor and nice techniques, I was visiting and had a great time! I recommend it highly
The environment is very friendly and great Instructors. I was visiting from West Virginia and wanted to learn more MMA. If you want to simply learn defense get a good workout or take a step further and learn how to fight, I highly recommend this place.
