My son, who trains, came out to visit a friend that trains here and dropped in on a class. Staff and students were welcoming and my son came away with an overall great experience.

Whenever I visit my parents in Texas I come train here! They are an amazing and talented team and learn so much every time I visit. This is the only place I train when I’m in Dallas. I’m so glad I found them! And they have a lot of talented girls to train with!! Win win!

Very cool sleek design, quality mats and extra large mat space . I dropped in for a nogi class at noon and the instructor was very friendly. Class format was perfect - warm up, good technique/ instruction (not too much ), drilling and then sparring . Variety of training partners was a plus as well. I would love to come back anytime I’m in Plano . I highly recommend this academy for anyone .

I have been training BJJ for over 13 years, and martial arts even longer. I’ve trained at academies around the world, and Progresso is one of the best academies I’ve been fortunate to call home. Professor Alex, Davi and Carol are outstanding instructors, in addition to being world class competitors. They have created a safe and stimulating environment where practitioners of all levels, abilities, backgrounds and goals can flourish.The facility itself is top level, with ample mat space and changing rooms, heavy bags and other striking equipment, and above all a high level of cleanliness and hygiene.If your are in the Plano area and are seeking BJJ instruction for yourself and your family, Progresso is your best choice.

I have been training at Progresso for a year; I started at another local academy but started shopping around to find a place with a more flexible schedule. Progresso has the best instructors of any academy that I have visited. They are world-class competitors, but still friendly and humble, creating a great atmosphere.The facilities are excellent and clean and they have numerous opportunities to train each week.
