Testimonials

avatar"I was a year shy of 30 and growing tired of spin classes and Stairmasters that did nothing for me. I needed something different. Something that would get me into shape, increase my confidence and be fun. I emailed Professor Zingano to see if I could swing by and try a Jiu Jitsu class. I made it through my first class and came back the next day for a Muay Thai class. I made it through both and was hooked. I canceled my gym membership and joined the Zingano Family. It truly is a family. The coaches have always been there for me whether it is at tournaments, providing little tips or some extra motivation to try harder. I was afraid that I would be the testing dummy for more skilled students. Instead, I found a culture of teaching and respect that permeates everything at the gym. From the first timer to the most experienced person, everyone looks out for each other, which allows everyone to be their best.

“After training at Zingano's for 5 months I lost 53 lbs, regained my confidence and have had incredible time training. The Family I found at Zingano's means the world to me and I am so glad I dropped in for that first class."

Zingano BJJ & Muay Thai has completely changed my life in more ways than one. Before I started doing Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu all I did after work is play video games or act like I knew what I was doing at the local fitness gym. I started at Zingano’s weighing around 215 pounds and have since dropped to 150 pounds. This sport gives me something to look forward to after work not only for the health reasons, but also for the atmosphere that is created. Team Zingano is not just a team to train with but is a family atmosphere where everyone feels wanted and no one is outcast. The knowledge spreads like a wildfire because everyone is always helping each other and none is made to feel like they can’t do a technique. I know personally I plan on training here for years to come.

I had been looking for some time for a new type of workout to stay in shape outside of traditional weight lifting and cardio routines.  I had tried several different workouts and found myself getting bored quickly with them.  I had wanted to try out Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for several years, but the idea of starting up something along those lines without knowing anyone there was nerve racking.  When I finally went in to Zingano BJJ, I immediately wished I had come in years before.  The training partners immediately made me feel at home and welcome.  The coaching staff seemed to not only care about my BJJ development, but me as a person.  Training at Zingano BJJ has had a significant impact on my life.  I am in the best shape of my life, and the training I get is not only a significant stress reliever in my life through exercise, but the friendships I have formed there have become second to none.

Our experience has been amazing! The instructors at Zingano’s are great at what they do and truly love sharing their knowledge with the kids. The classes did more than just teach them martial arts, it gave my daughter the self-confidence to try out for the wrestling team at her middle school and it taught my son how to be more disciplined with his schoolwork.


For myself, being a part of the adult classes, has been an awesome experience. It not only helped me lose weight and manage stress better, but it also helped bring up my self-confidence.

From day one, we have been treated like family not students. We have had a great experience and gladly recommend Zingano BJJ to everyone that has an interested in learning BJJ.

"We all have our own reasons for training, but whether you want to get in great shape, compete, challenge yourself physically and mentally, improve your self-defense skills, or just learn the most practical and useful martial art in existence, you will become addicted to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.


 I train at Zingano BJJ because we are a close-knit team where everyone helps everyone else.  As a result, I have personally seen my BJJ game make huge advances in the short time I've been here, and I've enjoyed helping my teammate’s progress as well.  Between the team environment, top-notch instruction and huge facility, you will not find a better or more legitimate place to train in Colorado."


See you at the academy!

My name is Andre Capritta, and I am a Computer Engineer. My six-year-old son Dylan and I have been doing Jiu-Jitsu at Zingano BJJ for about seven months now. We are absolutely addicted to it. We have found that we were welcomed into Mauricio's school from day one, and as time has passed we have only grown to be like family members. Mauricio is an amazing professor and we learn something new every time we step on the mat!

I enrolled my 2 Grandsons Emilio 6 and Elijah 5 with Zingano about 6 months ago and the experience has been wonderful. Their instructors are patient and fun with an upbeat attitude always, not only are they taught the skills needed but lessons about the proper time and place to use their skills. The amount of skills they pick up is amazing and they are having fun the whole time they are learning. Mauricio Zingano is always available and helpful and you can tell this academy is his passion. We have enjoyed the experience so much that we signed up again and I hope they will want to continue for years to come.

Sincerely,

Dear Master Zingano,


In a short period of time since enrolling Anthony in your classes I've seen a significant increase in his confidence. As you know, middle school can be rough on kids especially when they're smart and/or they're smaller than the bullies, just like in Anthony's case. I wanted to share two recent life changing stories about Anthony, which I credit Zingano BJJ.


While eating dinner together Anthony casually mentioned that the bully who physically harmed him last May was in his computer class. Being a mom, of course, I started to get concerned but with much assurance Anthony said "Mom, don't worry it's not like I'm beating him up". I pointed out that psychologically his statement came from a position of pure confidence and a declaration that he's not a victim.


Recently another kid threatened that he could beat up Anthony. Anthony laughed and said, "I don't think so. I know Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and I can hurt you." The kid hasn't bothered Anthony since. Needless to say, my husband and I don't worry about our son anymore.


I wanted to thank you and all the coaches for helping Anthony gain the confidence and self-defense skills that are so necessary. He has a passion for learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and he's having so much fun, too. I've noticed a major shift in attitude when he talks about diffusing confrontations with a potential bully. It's not just an art and a skill that you're helping to build but also reliance in self.


I've been impressed with your outstanding coaches and I'm grateful to them for their contribution in changing my child's confidence. They should be proud of what they do because they're truly making a difference.


 Sincerely,


 - Jeanette & Michael Pidanick
