Best Fraud in Town! – This gym is the coolest. Sifu Scott taught me the greatest part of the art of American combat jiu jistsu: the art of inventing a brazilian jiu jitsu master and then claiming whatever rank you desire. Currently I am ranked 7 and half stripe Brown under master Consuela Remroids! Obviously I am new to this lying about ranks thing and thus would not dream of claiming the black belt Master Fraud Scott claims. I will opnly feel ready once I fully understand the intricacies of claiming to be bullied whenever I'm asked to provide proof of my rank. I'm positive Sifu Scott will expertly guide me though.
Scott Shields is a FRAUD and a FAKE – His long list of 16 or 17 black belts in different martial arts? FAKE
5 stars says RUN, DON'T WALK to Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy! What a fantastic place to train, with Master Scott Shields to train under. He is the MAN, with real world experience and he will share all his knowledge with you! What he says WORKS, in the street and in competition. All the classes are fun and the detail you get on each technique is top notch. The guys (and girls) there are great to train with, no ego or anything and everyone is there to learn! I have been to other schools where everyone has an attitude and trys to compete with each other and the environment here is the exact opposite! My daughter trains in the kids classes and she loves it and this year in school- the bullies leave her alone! So grateful to Sifu Scott Shields and the other instructors for having such a positive impact on our lives!
The was guys *AND* girls not guys *ARE* girls haha!
Best Martial Arts Training in Charlotte – I have trained at Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy for several years and my children have recently starting training there, too. Master Scott Shields is a wealth of knowledge in many styles of martial arts and he is an excellent and patient teacher. He works very hard to transfer all the knowledge he can to his students. I train in all the classes- BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu), ACJJ (American Combat Jiu-Jitsu), JKD (Jeet Kune Do), the Fiipino Martial Arts (Kali, Silat, Escrima, Arnis) and Muay Thai. I have learned so much, both for self-defense and for sport. My children love the high energy kids classes and the fun drills and they are really getting good at the material! The "arts" part in martial art is never neglected and all the instructors make sure to instill traditional values in the students. It is a very respectful, fun and family oriented atmosphere and you can be sure to get the best training around. I have visited other schools and I would never call any other place home!
Best School EVER!!! – I am a parent and also a student of Sifu Shields. We have been there for about 2 years and LOVE IT!!! I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn a martial art in a safe and friendly envorinment. They greet you with open arms and treat everyone like family. Ashley Nee is wonderful with the kids! They beg to go to class instead of wanting to stay home! I have been to a few schools over the years and I wish i would have found them years ago!
Excellent martial arts school – I have been a student at Scott Shields Martial Arts for over three years, studing Jeet Kune Do and Kali. There are classes in other martial arts available, so students have a good choice of material. The atmosphere is friendly, and there is always an instructor or senior student to help you out. There are classes for kids as well, and they seem to enjoy the classes (I wish I still had that much energy). There are frequent seminars on self defense material, for both unarmed and armed situations. I would highly recommend SSMA to anyone looking for martial arts instruction.
SSMAA is THE place to learn martial arts! – Sifu Shields and all of his instructors are incredible. Sifu Shields has so much knowledge in so many martial art styles there is never an end to the new material he can present. If you are looking to actually learn martial arts and how to defend yourself, instead of just buying different colored belts, this is definitely the place to do it.
Plus, there is no attitude at this school either, from the minute you walk in you feel like you are part of the family. I've trained at numerous schools up and down the east coast over the years, and this is one of the best!
Great School,Great Value – Best Martial Arts school i ever been in, after years of training at a boxing gym, i felt i had learned good technique until learning more at this school, the instructors are very educated and technique oriented. This school is a great value(best in Charlotte) and a great learning experience!!!
Visit and see for yourself
Great school for the whole family! – My family and I love SSMAA! Our shy 6-year old is quickly coming out of her shell and making wonderful friends in her Muay Thai classes. At the same time, my wife enjoys every opportunity to practice her Triangle chokes on me in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! ;) Sifu Shields and Ashley Nee are wonderful instructors with a wealth of knowledge! We love our 'family-time'!!
Serious Martial Art School – Scott Shields Academy offers a variety of arts to suit your tastes or preferences. He is a skilled teacher genuinely interested in students absorbing the material and becoming accomplished martial artists themselves. All material is shown and explained in great detail so you know "what " and "why" rather than learning moves & forms you're not sure what they are for.
As for the disgruntled reviewers I have never heard of a Gym, martial art school, dance academy, sports league or other instruction-based business that does not require a yearly contract.
