Martial Arts Gastonia

I cannot say enough good things about this place. The instructors and fellow students have become such a "family" to me. People notice and care when your are gone and encourage and support when you are there. The classes are always great and engaging and not the same thing twice. Seriously look into it! Go try out a class. You won't be sorry!!!

Ryan is the best of the best instructor in the area and we appreciate his time and dedication in his school . I am very pleased to be part of this fit to fight family... I'm telling this not only because I like him but it's the truth

Love this place. From the staff up front to the instructors. It doesn't matter if your a beginner in MMA or just looking to get into shape, this is the place to go! My only problem is the price!@ It's so affordable it's hard to believe you get so much for so little. Both my kids attend classes and fitness training here and my wife and I are trying to get the energy to enroll as well. Everyone needs to atleast go by and check them out. Once you do, you will be hooked!

We searched for the best place with the best instructor/owner for Krav Maga, Fitness, and kid's program and thought we would need to join multiple centers...but we found it all here at FTF Gastonia. Ryan is the best in the business and the instructors here are great.

Very welcoming staff. I have been going here for about 4 months now, I haven't been in this good of shape in about seven years! My kids have been here for a year now and its like a second home to them and it's improved there discipline and behavior.

I have been a member of Fit To Fight Gastonia for many years. It is by far one of the best experiences I have ever had. The instructors and members are family to me. Professionalism with a human caring touch. I started off weighing 225 lbs; I now weigh 175 lbs. All classes at FTF are both effective and street tested. I would have given FTF 10 stars if they let me.

I joined a couple of months ago. We initially visited to check out their children's martial arts program for our kids who are 6 (boy) and 5 (girl) - which we absolutely love - Amber does an incredible job. Once we decided to sign them up, we did a trial ourselves and immediately joined. I absolutely love how challenged I am - from the boxing & hIIT classes to sparring and self defense. More importantly though; is how welcoming everyone is - it is definitely a family like atmosphere, which is so awesome being the "new kid" doing something brand new.

FTF has been so beneficial for my little family. My father started, loved it, and then got my son and I to come. The positive impact on physical fitness is great but I believe the biggest gains we have all had are in our self confidence. This place is so much more than just a gym or your standard kids karate studio. It's very special and Gastonia is lucky to have it!

Amber is great with the kids and she was great instructing the adults tonight at smash fit. My husband loves the BJJ classes!

Amber is one of the most talented instructors I've had the chance to meet. She has a way with her class. She helps not only in the class room but outside the class room. School work and respect is what she instills her youth.

Seriously, this place is one of my absolute favorite places in the area. It truly feels like a family. Everyone encourages one another to keep improving! I really cannot say how much I enjoy this gym!

This was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It carried me through some very difficult times. It broke my heart to have to leave when I moved back up north. But because of a video I watched during Hard Ready I had the courage to make the change. Thanks to everyone who I trained with over the years there. You are the best!

I'm not what you would call a prime specimen of physical fitness however the instructors are very patient with this newbie! I just finished my 3rd class of Krav Maga and will definitely be signing up next week. On the way to getting in shape and being able to defend myself. Thanks to all who make it feel like family!

Ftf is a great place where you can grow, not only physically, mentally and emotionally, but also in safety. You enter into a family here and it's hard to be removed from that family. Great experience
