Thanks to Finnie McMahon, I plan to continue practicing the art of Jiu Jitsu for the rest of my life
My first day heading into my Jiu Jitsu intro class was rather nerve racking because I didn't know anybody. The first face I saw was Finnie Mcmahon's and he was extremely welcoming and made me feel as though I belonged and was part of the family immediately. I've been training in Boulder with Finnie McMahon for over a year now and I can speak for everyone when I say that he is greatly missed and that Fort Collins is more than lucky to have him. Thanks to Finnie McMahon, I plan to continue practicing the art of Jiu Jitsu for the rest of my life and have introduced family members and many friends to this unique and practical art. I would recommend Jiu Jitsu to anyone and everyone of all ages who seek physical fitness, confidence, a practical form of self defense and a healthier life. I have also met many great people and have made many close friends.

Thanks to McMahon Jiu-Jitsu, my skinny video game junkie kids have transformed into healthy, confident, respectful kids!
McMahon Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academyin Ft. Collins is the best place to perfect your Jiu-Jitsu skills! Professor Finnie and Coach Tessa McMahon along with a great staff have created the perfect atmosphere for martial arts training. The McMahon’s are both full-time blackbelts and, each day, they teach practical, effective self-defense techniques along with physical fitness and valuable life lessons.
About a year ago, we enrolled our boys in McMahon Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy, and they have since been transformed from two skinny video game junkies into healthy confident, respectful kids. The transformation has been dramatic! The values instilled in them from the Junior Grapplers program are obvious. My 8 and 10 year old kids have grown physically, and mentally but – more importantly – I’ve seen there self-esteem, self-respect and respect for others grow by leaps. Not only has the training helped them in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but in every day life as well. The increase in confidence has inspired them to do things that they may not have ordinarily done, like star in a school musical, or even compete and do very well in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition. They also have great camaraderie with newfound, like-minded friends.
After seeing all the great benefits that McMahon BJJ has to offer, my wife and I also joined. In just a few months at McMahon BJJ, I feel I have, positively increased the range of motion in my lower back and neck, regulated my high blood pressure, and even lost 20 pounds without feeling like I have been “working out.” My wife has also lost several pounds and has improved her strength and coordination while having fun learning the self-defense techniques. She carries herself with more confidence and self-respect, and regularly attends classes without me.
We enjoy the time we spend here at McMahon BJJ. Professor Finnie and Coach Tessa are 100% committed to helping you achieve your goals within the school, and in everyday life. They are genuine people who really care about all the students here. Not only have they changed our lives for the better, but they have given our family something we can all learn and talk about together. It’s easy to see the passion that the McMahon’s have for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We are very lucky to have crossed paths, and are very grateful for all they have done for us. We feel that everybody owes it to themselves to at least stop in and see what the McMahon BJJ family can do for them.

Jiu-Jitsu is just one of the valuable lessons McMahon BJJ teaches our children
We wanted to express our heartfelt gratitude for the fantastic job you do at McMahon BJJ. Our children have gained a passion for Jiu-Jitsu, and they've learned valuable life lessons that will serve them long after they leave this academy and as they travel their journey through life. They've learned how to take care of themselves while taking care of others, whom to go to for help, and how to exit certain situations that are harmful to them. We truly appreciate all you have done and will miss you as you move on to pursue your dream of your own academy.

McMahon’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes provide the physical and mental challenge I was looking for
I have always been looking for a martial art that gave me the intangible traits most people strive to achieve: self-confidence, courage, respect and self-discipline. As a Marine, I have always found physical challenges tied with exceptional teaching produced the best results. Coach McMahon's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes provided the physical and mental challenges I was looking for. His teaching provided guidance, encouragement and constant enthusiasm to each and every class. He not only teaches each class with exuberance, he participates with the same dedication and respect he’s cultivating with his students.
