Dark Horse Combat Club Reviews

This is a training environment full of incredibly talented martial artists, minus the attitude and swagger you find in so many places. Every single person in this gym is there to help each other get better. I love this place and these people.

Welcoming atmosphere, patient and knowedgable coaches, skilled and friendly students that challenge you in every way. Couldn't have found a better BJJ gym in Denver!

I am so grateful to have this gym in my life. I came in very nervous and tentative, but since that first day, I’ve been treated with utmost respect and support. The coaching staff truly cares about your development, your goals, and overall health. I’m in my late 30s and every gym membership just didn’t last, but this one did. I’ve lost weight, I’m starting to feel the potential of what my body can do, I’ve gained more confidence in myself, and I’m getting to know great people. It’s an honor to be a part of this gym. I can’t recommend Dark Horse enough.

Great people, great gym, everyone is friendly and focused on getting better everyday !

An absolutely stellar gym full of stellar, welcoming people. Clean, lots of room to train, and supremely non-meat-headish. (Not to mention killer 90's dance tracks...)

The mind-body-soul benefits are almost impossible to explain with words. If you are searching for an outstanding BJJ/Muay Thai spot in Denver, look no further!

The people here have become like family. I have been training on a weekly basis at Dark Horse for about 9 months and have found a lot of benefit in BJJ both physically and mentally. Give it a shot and find out for yourself.

Best place. Training here gets one very vulnerable to learn the art truly but to also find a confidence that really radiates positivity and discipline. Had a short experience here due a severe health barrier but instantly knew this was the place for me. I'll return here soon.  Instructors are great and the other people learning are great to work with. Recommend it to anyone.

I cant recommend this place enough! If your looking at gyms to train at this is a great place with great people, if your looking at gyms considering the start of your journey then I wish you luck in your searching and I hope you step on the mats soon.
I walked in on 12/10/15 hoping to get control of my health. I wasn't sure what to expect and I didn't know anything about BJJ but I was welcomed in and have been training now for 7 months. BJJ has taught me that disciplines stack on top of one another and create strong discipline that can change your life. In order for me to get better at this game I had to improve the person I was.
I walked in weighing 225lbs and just 7 months later I weigh 170lbs! that's a loss of 55lbs and I feel the difference, I can see the difference and so can my friends and family. I'm not just healthier I'm more confident, more energized, more focused and sure... even happier. With the help of coach Jason and Professor Charles I am in the best shape of my life. They would both say that it was me and not them but the truth is that it was them, the gym, my teammates and of coarse myself.
I wrote this review to tell you folks looking at gyms that this place is great but if you don't come here, go somewhere! Start training, keep training and good luck playa!

Dark Horse is an awesome gym. Everyone is friendly and helpful, no egos on or off the mat, and the biggest selling point for me is the amount of jiu jitsu classes they offer every week that jive with my normal 9 - 5 work schedule. Maximum mat time!

Josh E.

Amazing range of classes for all skill levels and super flexible schedule, not to mention some of the best people I've ever had the chance to get to know!

Dark Horse Combat Club is an excellent place to learn jiu jitsu. The technique taught here is nuanced and the lessons are well structured. The students and teachers are all very friendly and there's a great sense of community. This is where I first started training jiujitsu and it gave me a great foundation which I rely upon every time I'm on the mats.

After 6mo at Dark Horse, it's clear to me that I'm addicted to BJJ. The physical and mental benefits are too many to count. Having dabbled in BJJ before, this gym has such a welcoming atmosphere from the very first day you step on the mat. Coach Jason and Professor Charles do a fantastic job of combining deep BJJ knowledge with a fun, familial community. So come on out and hope to see you on the mat! Ossss!

Kyle S.

This place is truly amazing!!! Everyone makes you feel so comfortable here. It's like one big family! All the coaches here have incredible amounts of knowledge on all aspects of martial arts and fitness. I plan on calling this place my home for a very long time and would recommend it to anyone! Truly a world-class gym. Come join us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really great vibes in this place! Awesome Jiu Jitsu instruction! Joey has an extremely deep and technical understanding of the art, and genuinely cares about the success of his students. Very reasonably priced in the world of BJJ, and up front about pricing. Love it!

Jiu Jitsu is something I have wanted to take on but never found the motivation to make it to any formal classes. My friend brought me along to a beginner class a month ago and I instantly got hooked. Besides it being an easy location for me to sneak out on a lunch break for a class, there is great instruction, and friendly people. Highly recommend checking out Dark Horse!

I had always stayed away from BJJ because I thought it was full of bros. Joey and Jason came to Judo one night and after meeting them, I reconsidered my previous notions. They take the time to explain each piece so that by the time you end class you have a new string of movements put together. It has incredibly enhanced my judo game as well as helped me with stress management in my professional and personal life. If you’re thinking of joining a BJJ team, Dark Horse Denver is the way to go!

BJJ is physical exercise in an activity that I enjoy and also requires the use of my brain. Motivation to better myself both physically and mentally.The instruction and structure of the curriculum are head and shoulders above what I’ve experienced in the handful of classes at the other two schools I’ve been to. Fun. Release from a hard week/day. Camradarie.

Dark Horse Denver’s BJJ program has a great group of students which range from all types of skill levels and background. Coaches Joey and Jason are excellent in both walking and talking you through strategic movements. They also are great at getting to know students on a personal level, and applying advice accordingly.

Great workout of both body and mind! What more could one ask… After just a few days/weeks I think you figure out you are part of a tribe and it IS A GOOD THING to depend on and be depended on for a little something these days…

Dark Horse Denver is an excellent place to learn BJJ. I have been doing judo for 26 years and have never been even remotely interested in BJJ until I met Joey Chase and Jason Cox. They started a BJJ class at Denver Judo where I coach and my entire family started training with them. Joey and Jason are excellent instructors and I am truly enjoying their classes. If you want to learn BJJ Dark Horse is the place to be!
