Visited San Diego for a weekend on Labor day and had to get some rolls in for their open mat on Sundays. Let me tell you this was one of the coolest places I've rolled in and the people were so chill... and the room was full of talent! If I ever move here this will be the place to train. Thank you so much for your hospitality and making me feel welcomed! I'll be back fur sureread more

Legion is definitely a notch above all other gyms. Not only are the instructors world class athletes, they have invested time and identified how to best teach Jiu Jitsu to their students. They have... an innovative culture, there is always something added to enhance the gym experience. The constant drive for improvement is what sets this gym apart. Anyone that wants to experience the new gold standard for what a modern Jiu Jitsu gym should be, drop by. The vibes are always welcoming and fun at Legion.read more

This gym has the best atmosphere, I immediately felt welcome. The instruction is world class with something for every level. There’s a strength training area as well, which has everything you really... need. The facility is always clean, especially the mats. They even have mouthwash in the bathrooms! I’ve never had an issue with parking.read more

Man, what can I say about Legion! First of all the most important aspect about Legion is, you get 100% of the jujitsu you want and 0% of the attitude that you don’t want and don’t need. This is like... an egalitarian jujitsu utopia. The instruction is top notch. The people range from the ultimate hobbyist, like myself, to world-class competitors and everybody is there to learn and have fun. I have not encountered a single negative ego yet. The front desk staff which are notoriously snotty at many of the jujitsu gyms around town are kind, helpful, and genuinely want you to have a positive experience. Finally the instructors are fantastic. Notably Andris, such an incredible technician who has an equally incredible ability for breaking down complex concepts into simple actionable steps. He also is able to zoom out and give even low level practitioners a comprehensive overview of why individual techniques are important and how they play into the greater jujitsu framework. No hesitation in offering my highest recommendation.read more

Legion feels like attending an Ivy League University for Jiu-Jitsu!Classes:My husband Jason, and I attend the “Rise & Sunshine” morning classes which is the perfect way to start our weekdays.... Jon’s instruction has started my journey into Jiu-Jitsu off on the right path, with a mix of basic and advanced techniques. Jason also attends the night classes where he learns new concepts to add to his game. Teammates from both classes are a joy to train with!Facility:Consistently clean day & night, from entrance to the mats. Locker rooms are fully stocked, plus hair tie and mouth wash to top off the necessities. Biggest mat space we’ve seen, with non-distracting colors. Tip: always watch out for the robot vacuums so as to not trip over them! :)Staff:Front desk personnel & staff are welcoming and on top of their game. Instructors are extremely knowledgeable with the focus on technical details being emphasized. Bonus tip: watch out for your lapels at this school!All in all, it has been a great experience for us to come here and play. It’s a school that sets us up for success in our Jiu-Jitsu careers!read more

I primarily train at another academy in SD, but I dropped in for the Memorial Day class/open mat and was very impressed. The facility is huge and beautiful with plenty of mat space and excellent... ventilation. Kennan and his team have clearly put a lot of thought into making it a pleasant place to train. The class was excellent as well. Kennan gave some great insight into the Ezekiel and the open mat after was friendly and intense. Had Legion been open when I was looking for schools a few years ago I could’ve happily ended up hereread more

Started coming here for Sunday open mat just to get some rolls in. First thing I noticed is that their mat space is huge. Tons of room. Probably enough to accommodate at least...25-30 sets of... partners. The girls at the front desk were super nice and friendly and professional. Asked me to sign a waiver, gave me a concise but thorough overview of how everything works and where the lockers are etc. Locker room is spacious, clean, and well-maintained. Same for the mats themselves once I got on them. It's clear that they regularly clean here-- I can tell because I've been places where it's clear that they don't 😬. The folks who show up for the open mats have all been cool. Good mix of skill levels too with all belt ranks usually represented.The environment and atmosphere are healthy and comfortable. Everybody I've met has been cool. Looking forward to spending more of my Sundays on the legion mats.read more
