  • I’ve attended some classes with my kids over the years with Gorilla Combat and always enjoyed the experience.  I sent my daughter and a couple of her friends to a self defense class with Gorilla prior to them leaving for college.  The instruction was pleasant, practical and useful for them to have if they ever need it. - Anthony Grobel       Victoria, MN.
  • Went to Gorilla Combat for a BJJ seminar and belt test. Great facility and everyone there was extremely kind. Hoping to find some more time to drop in. If your close to Edina and looking for a good workout with great people I'd encourage you to check them out!

  • “I have done the big fitness clubs in our area but never found a fit until GC. Hands down the most genuine, knowledgeable trainers in an environment that felt comfortable after about 5 minutes…. even in classes partnered with far more experienced members than myself! I am no boxer but I love the training, learning the techniques and finally seeing muscles I thought were long gone.”

  • “I’m happy with Gorilla Combat. As a working parent of 4, and part-time student, the classes are a great stress reliever. Three of my children (ages 11-16) and myself have had great experiences training in Boxing, Muay-Thai Boxing, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I have developed muscle definition in my legs, arms and abs. My kids and I have more self-confidence within our abilities. Plus the Instructors are nice and provide great instruction!”

  • I LOVE Gorilla Combat! My whole family regularly attends classes here (including my 6 year old!) and we could not be happier with our experience. The classes range from beginner to expert and offer something for everyone. Don’t be scared - come get some!!!!!

  • "From my very first class, I felt welcomed and part of the group. Everyone was so gracious and quick to offer assistance. The instructors are knowledgeable and patient, and keep things fun and lively. The results have been increased strength and endurance, weight management, and I’ve even gained some knowledge on how to protect myself – all within a comfortable environment with some new friends."

  • "I've tried many different gyms and fitness programs over the years and none of them compare to Gorilla Combat. The instructors are highly knowledgeable, experienced, and fun to be around. The members are welcoming and encouraging and really want to help others learn. You’ll leave every class having learned something new and will make friends along the way too.  Whatever your goals may be — whether it's getting in the best shape of your life, exploring your dream of entering competition, or just relieving stress after a hard day's work, this is the place for you. A big thank you to the staff and members of Gorilla for helping me become a better version of myself and giving me the chance to do what I love!"    -  Amy Dunbar : competitive Amateur Boxer     Bloomington, MN.  5-23-19

“No matter if you’re a beginner, intermediate or expert level, there’s something for everybody here at Gorilla!”

 

 

“What brought me to Gorilla was that I wanted to lose weight in a way that I could be passionate about, in a way that I respected, through a sport that I always admired, and that sport was boxing!”

 

“I like the physical and mental workout that I get. Also, sparring with my co-workers is fun!”

“The biggest result I’ve seen so far is confidence in my social life, at work, everywhere. I’m just a lot more confident overall.”

  • Was a bit intimidated going to my first boxing gym, but found Gorilla Combat very inviting. Great trainers, great atmosphere, super clean, and great people. After a free week, just purchased my membership!

  • Gorilla Combat helped me reach my fitness goals. I was getting a little bored with what I’d been doing and the last pounds were taking longer than I liked. I decided to try Muai-Thai Boxing and loved it! The instructors were great and the people I met were genuine and fun. I lost those last few pounds, and gained muscle, increased endurance, and some basic self-defense skills. Highly recommend this gym!!        -Mary Jones, Belle Plaine, Mn
