Been training with Professor Daniel Montanha for 8+ years and my two daughters and I wouldn't trade it for anything. High level training at all times and at any age.

I started for the purpose of getting in shape, learning a few self-defense moves, and to meet people. At this place, I've found all those things and so much more. Great new family.
Carmen Santiago October 4, 2015
So many good things to be said! Professor Montanha has created a home for warriors to share knowledge, and learn in an open and friendly atmosphere. Whether your goals are self defense, competitive, or recreational this is the place to be!

There are so many good things to say about South Miami Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. You have to experience it on your own. Positive vibes, and a great camaraderie. Everyone wants you to get better. Everyone welcomes you with open arms. Professor Daniel Montahna is an amazing experienced teacher, and truly cares for his students. Great friends, great team, and a great family will be made here. Highly recommended if you're looking to learn some top level Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

As a woman I was treated with a lot of respect, guided, and mentored by the owner himself, who took the time and actually got on the mat with me to tell me with fundamentals. The instructors are phenomenal! The more advanced students are also very welcoming and passionate about what they do, and are always helpful to beginners and advanced students alike. My two boys gained a lifelong passion for BJJ here! I love the discipline, respect, and family values that shape the culture here...thank you for an amazing experience! (We moved, but hope to be back!) I recommend to families, 150%!

No better way to get in shape, build confidence, release stress, meet nice confident people etc... I would suggest everybody to come in and try it...

This is the best academy in Miami. You don't have to take my word for it, however, the academy has been around for about ten years. I have lost 60 lbs (27 kg) with Professor Montanha's training. I came here with blood pressure issues, I was overweight, fatigued and out of shape. All of this is in the past now as I am weighing in at a lean 152 lbs. (69 kg). The training is awesome, the people here are great. Montanha is very attentive to detail and an inspiring instructor. Classes are available in the morning as well as the evening. If you give Brazilian Jiu Jitsu a try, you will reap many benefits from your training: weight loss, fitness, confidence, self defense, and friendships are just a few of the many great things this place has given me.

Highly recommended! Can not ask for a better place for fitness, de-stress, and camaraderie. Attending South Miami BJJ, I've found myself pushing both my mental and physical limits to new heights. The level of BJJ taught is top-notch, and learning takes place in a family-style atmosphere. Everyone learns at their own pace, with the ultimate goal being refinement of martial arts skills and betterment of yourself.

Professor Daniel is a great teacher and a generous friend. He is a real professional with a lot of dedication to his craft. There is nowhere else I'd rather train, or let my 2 kids train, than with Daniel Montanha and his coaches. I consider the school as a big family, not just a place to train but a home away from home.
Luis Hernandez October 4, 2015
This gym feels like a second home. Instructors are very knowledgeable and the people are very welcoming. There is an excellent balance between beginners, self defense, and advanced classes, and between morning and night classes, so regardless of who you are there is always good training available.
Renato Barbosa da Silva October 4, 2015
My son is learning self defense, commitment, respect, accountability, teamwork, confidence, and how amazing it feels to achieve something you work very hard for! Thank you to Professor Daniel and all the coaches at South Miami Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy!

I had the fortunate opportunity to train with Professor Daniel at his school and was very impressed at the level of his students, the school itself and the professionalism of Professor Daniel. They made me feel very at home and I left there exhausted!! Thank you again for having me!! I truly look so forward to coming back. Professor Daniel knows his jiu jitsu and is an innovator in the sport and a true competitor.

Montanha is an incredible coach, a world champion competitor, and a true friend. Whenever I've had the honor of training with him, every technique that he has taught me has immediately become a part of my game. No-nonsense jiu jitsu in a first-rate facility!

Prof Montanha is an exceptionally talented teacher for both children and adults. As a student of his for the last 13 years I have come to appreciate the unique opportunity to train with someone who is a master of his craft. Do not hesitate and train with him of you can. You will not be disappointed!
