I love training at Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy! I have been doing the American Combat Jiu-Jitsu class for about a year and it has completely changed my life. I just LOVE training, I train 5-7 days a week and do private lessons and am even planning on competing! I have made life-long friends, gotten amazing mentors in Sifu Shields and the other instructors and gained confidence in myself. I have lost weight and gotten in better shape and it has motivated me to work out outside of class as well. I am so grateful to have found the Team Jaguar family. It has made such a huge positive impact on my life, I cannot imagine where I would be now without it!
Scott Shields MMA is an awesome place to train. I am a family man and we all participate. I love the Jiu Jitsu classes and rolling is so much fun and I get a great workout. My wife is thrilled because she has lost 20 lbs and still going in her Muay Thai Kickboxing class and my kids love their classes as well and I am very happy seeing their confidence grow and not having to worry about them getting bullied in school and not know what to do. Can't reccommend this place enough.
Scott Shields Martial Arts is the best place I have ever found to train. I had trained in BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) for over 5 years before I moved to Charlotte and found Sifu Shields. His classes are always fun and exciting and extremely practical. I love the mixture of self-defense and sport material. My two children are having a fantastic time in the kids classes there and my wife has just started in the Muay Thai kickboxing class as well and is feeling great about losing weight and getting in better shape and making new friends. They have an amazing atmosphere for all ages and everyone is treated like family. I cannot reccommend this school enough, whether you are a brand new beginner or have lots of experience, if you want the best place in the Charlotte area to train come to Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy.
Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy is a really great place. From the moment I became a member of Team Jaguar I was made to feel welcome and part of the family. I always leave class feeling like I have learned valuable techniques that I will actually be able to put into practice. I am even trying to get my girlfriend to sign up as well so I will feel more secure knowing she knows how to defend herself. I have been training now for about a year and I am excited to continue progressing and learning more in the years to come!
Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy is an awesome place to train. I always have a fun time in class and learn some great stuff and I also get a nice workout. I have also made a ton of friends there and love the team/family atmosphere. They are always having activities on weekends and special seminars and stuff that just add to the overall great experience of being a student there. If you want a place to train in the Charlotte, NC area you should definately join Team Jaguar!
Family Oriented Atmosphere.
The school is very family oriented and execellent place for kids to train and learn self-defense. The adult programs are very well defined and the instructors are very patient with newcomers.
Top quality training! Scott Shields has given me all the moves I need to succeed in my Jiujitsu game. His knowledge of jiujitsu, mma and kickboxing is staggering. Honor and respect are the words I would use to describe the entire academy. It's like a big family and I have been treated like a member of the family since day one. I drive over 30 miles each way to train here and have been to many other places, this academy is the BEST!!!
Best Training in Charlotte – I began training at Scott Shields Martial Arts several months ago. I have trained for a long time and when I moved to Charlotte I found Scott Shields Martial Arts Academy. I have been consistently thrilled with the quality of classes and instruction. Whether for self-defense on competition the instructors have knowledge in what will work and can help taylor your training to your own skills and style. The best part is being part of the team, Team Jaguar is like a big family that helps and looks out for each other. This is the place for me. If you're looking for the best training in Charlotte, check out SSMAA.
The Real Deal on Self-Defense – I bounced a long time ago in bars and clubs and I wish I knew then what I know now. Master Scott Shields combines his real life experience in self-defense situations and sport to teach his students techniques that work for a variety of encounters. Whether it is knife defenses, 3rd party intervention or a sweep for a tournament you can learn it all here. Master Shields combines effective moves from many different arts to create a realistic and useful curriculum in his classes. The students are great and there is always someone there to give you a little extra help with a technique or encouragement if you need it. I think I can speak for the school as a whole when I say Master Shields students are very confident in their ability to defend themselves if need be. Through it all, Master Shields is a humble, ego-less instructor and always an open book and with an open door to discuss any topic you might have a question on. If you are looking to train martial arts, whether for self-defense, fitness, confidence or sport, I encourage you without hesitation to try out a class and join our Team!
The PLACE to train in Charlotte – 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!
