• My name is Joshua Eayre,  my son Tristan studies and practices Jiu jitsu at Dark horse in Longmont,  he started studying when he was 8 years old nearly 9, He is 11 years old now. I really wanted him to find a healthy and safe place for him to channel his energy,  it was clear for him almost immediately that he had found another sport that he could really compete in, that would not be easily mastered. I think that for my son he loves to be challenged,  and Jiu jitsu does that. I have seen him grow not only Physically but emotionally and mentally as well.  Dark horse in Longmont has a nice way of not only teaching Jiu jitsu techniques but also respect,  discipline,  and social interaction with others, the coaches and Professor really do well to talk and explain things to the kids in a way  that I think really works. I have seen good changes in my son with his time here at Dark horse,  he took a break for Football and decided he wanted to return,  for me that said something because Jiu jitsu is work, but I Think he also has a lot of fun here too. If anyone were to ask me if it would be good for thier child, my answer would be absolutely, the change that I have seen in my son makes me proud, he has always been pretty well adjusted but he has a calm confidence now that I love to see, one that I am sure any parent would want for thier child also. I make sacrifices with time to bring my son,  but the time is well worth it. 
    Proud Dad,

  • Best place to train in Longmont. World class BJJ, and a great Muay Thai team. Friendly atmosphere good for guys and girls alike. Good gym for people just doing it for fun or to stay in shape. And as far as I'm concerned the only place to train in Longmont if you are thinking about competing in BJJ, MMA, or Muay Thai.

  • Some of the best instruction I have ever received. Very well organized curriculum and a great variety of classes - BJJ, MMA, kickboxing, etc. It's the kind of place that when you put your jacket on and walk out at the end of your day, you really feel like you have accomplished something.

  • A "dark horse" is someone who comes from anonymity to achieve something great...that's you if you go to this school!   Dark Horse BJJ offers world-class instruction from two incredibly talented black belt instructors.  I've trained at many front range BJJ schools and Dark Horse is by far my favorite place to train.  The classes are not intimidating and the instructors promote an atmosphere that encourages everyone to take care of their partners.  The kids program is fantastic and they offer fitness classes and muay thai classes that are awesome workouts.  I'm in my late 30s and have lost 60lbs since I started BJJ!   This training gives you confidence, speed, agility, strength, power, and most of all: it's fun!  You can try some classes risk free...just come in for an introductory class and watch a class to see what you think.  Everyone is welcome at Dark Horse!
