“My daughters have been going here for almost a year. When we have accidentally left a t-shirt or belt behind, staff would let us borrow one and didn’t even ask for it back! If you think gear for sparring is pricey, it’s no more than you would pay at your local sports shop. For me it was a little expensive at the time (about six months after being there) because I was going through a divorce and my money was pretty much frozen until we went to court. So I was allowed to spread the payments up over a six month period.
USBA is helping my children not only learn how to take down a would be attacker but to feel proud when they get a promotion. We even get a hand written card of congratulations with their name on it in the mail when they get to the next level in the belt system. I have attended and always payed when the billing was due
USBA treated my family as if I was a part of their own. Once my finance situation resolved (about a month and a half later), I of course paid immediately and even went on a little shopping spree in the kids’ clothing section. Ivan and his wife are both sweethearts. I deal with Rachel mostly but she runs everything past Ivan before making any final decision. They are business partners so she does it out if respect for each other. I have seen him treat Rachel only with respect. He’s a business man and a family man, obviously a great guy. And Rachel ..she’s a doll. It’s no wonder they can run a business together they are both easy to get along with.
Ivan and Rachel have treated my family with integrity, and how kind of them to allow my children to continue when I wasn’t even sure if I could pay them for that one month. I drove home that day in tears while thinking to myself that this goes to show everything is going to be okay. I made it through my divorce and all the drama that went with it. I’m so grateful for them all at USBA – they are dedicated. It’s about the kids to them and to helping them strive to be their best.
The staff definitely cares about their clients, and not just the clients money, or I would have been booted a long time ago. I am forever grateful. I will stay with Royce Gracie Academy OC until my daughters get their black belts. My daughters have learned so much and couldn’t be happier.
Royce Gracie Academy OC is a wonderful academy.The place is professionally cleaned each morning! They have a company that comes in and sanitizes the mats daily. With all those kids going in and out? Thank God! Royce Gracie Academy OC runs a tight ship. Most dojos smell, and have germs everywhere. I moved to them from an academy in Aliso that was so gross. It was dirty my kids would get everything that was going around.
Royce Gracie Academy OC and its employees are a breath of fresh air in more ways than one!”
