  • 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!

  • 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.

  • “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!”

  • 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!

  • "Caleb, I just wanted to thank you again for your help in getting ready for Bolivia. I am so impressed with Gorilla Combat and all I've learned. Thank you for getting me some added confidence to walk the streets and help these kids. I truly appreciate it! God Bless.  Sincerely,"            - Lily Fluhartly (Missionary)
  • "I was very nervous the first time going into a MMA gym, especially being inexperienced. Caleb has been patient with me throughout training and never treated me differently because I was new to the Combative Arts. I feel more confident now knowing I have some awareness skills and some skill set to reference from. Very good training and applications to understand!"   - Samantha Strachan:   Private Training  - Edina, MN.  05-23-19
  • Always one of my favorite gyms! Everyone treats each other with respect, and they always think about safety first. Great for beginners! Or if you’re looking for competitive fights. I highly recommend gorilla combat

  • "When you find a workout that you won't skip - no matter what - you know it's special.  It's the intensity, it's the full body conditioning,  but it's also the instructors that make every novice feel like a pro and make those that have been there for years feel like it's a fresh, new workout."
