LLOYD IRVIN'S TESTIMONIALS
Irvin Martial Arts Academy Is The Best Place
Martial Arts Academy is the best place to
train. I came in looking for the best place to train and I can honestly
say that I have found it. It is a family thing, my family is no longer
my wife and kids but Team Lloyd Irvin as well.
I have been involved with sports my entire life but everyday I am
amazed at the fact that I walk away not only with lessons derived from
learning a new technique but lessons that carry over into my everyday
life as well. We have several blackbelts in our TLI family and they all
STILL PUT IT ON THE LINE and compete. Their doors are always open for
questions, and Master Lloyd Irvin has breed this environment not by
preaching but by example. He has never asked us to do anything that he
himself hasn't already done and he puts his heart into his leadership
One of the best aspects of our gym is that we have the best trainers
and coaches for standup, and ground. So for those that want to learn
all around self defense, get in shape, or become a part of the #1
Grappling Team and the fastest growing team of "Complete MMA Fighters",
this is definitely the place to be.
I know that my grappling game is increasing at a pace that would be
impossible to match at any other gym and although you may find a place
where the coaching is equal you won't find a place that is better.
Irvin is the Best!!"
Although I've only
been training with Master Lloyd for a
about a month I can see why his method of training is so addictive.
Coming from a natural competive background of wrestling where I got 2nd
in the state of maryland for, 3rd in Eastern Region for College and
2004 MVP for Delaware State University Wrestling Team. I've seen alot
of coaches and alot of tough training method. But Lloyd Irvin is by far
one of the best not only does he train people for martial arts, he also
trains them to become a better person and that can be seen, from family
like atmosphere all the way to his Blacks Belts. This is the place to
go if you want to improve your grappling game to a championship level.
"To Be The Best You've Got To Train With The Best". That's
thing I've learned in my College Wrestling Career and Lloyd Irvin is
white to black belt, one will find a group of highly
motivated individuals working to improve their grappling game under the
tutelage of Master Lloyd!!"
Martial Arts Academy (LIMAA) has become a
second home for my family and me. From day one, we were treated with
respect, courtesy, and with the utmost professionalism. Master Lloyd's
instruction and knowledge is plentiful, technically precise and "the
system" is proven by the success of Team Lloyd Irvin in competition.
His instruction is also regimented, rigorous and breeds a very team
oriented environment. For anyone who has had the opportunity to be
apart of a team, you know that "the team" facilitates the accomplishing
of group goals along with individual goals because of the common
denominator amongst the individuals working together. That is exactly
the environment at LIMAA. From white to black belt, one will find a
group of highly motivated individuals working to improve their
grappling game under the tutelage of Master Lloyd. Over the course of a
year, I have grown to understand the impact Master Lloyd has made on
the art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu but I did not understand the magnitude
until his induction into the "Grapplers Hall Of Fame." Along with
Master Lloyd, Royce Gracie was also inducted. For those of you who may
not know, Royce Gracie's exploits in the Ultimate Fight Challenges
(UFC) are legendary and were influential in making the art of Jiu-jitsu
a very prominent fighting art. Furthermore, I was amazed to see just as
many people crowded around Master Lloyd to meet him and get a picture
and/or autograph as there were for Royce Gracie. At that point, I
realized that I had been taking my instruction and exposure to Master
Lloyd for granted and should capitalize on every moment.
In closing, not only has Master Lloyd become my sensei and a great
instructor, but he has become a confidant and friend. I look forward to
the future on and off the mat with him.
training under Master Lloyd, I now know what it's
like to train under an elite instructor"
How many of us can
remember, as children, spending
Saturday mornings watching martial arts movies, playing and dreaming of
being preternatural warriors studying under some renown master of the
martial arts? Now fast forward to today. Although most of us are adults
now, and we know that martial arts is about hard work and perseverance,
wouldn't it be great to be able to study under a real master teacher?
Well, guess what. You can! After training under Master Lloyd, I now
know what it's like to train under an elite instructor. An instructor
who leads and teaches by example. An instructor who wants you to be the
best you can be. An instructor who holds all of his students
responsible for the advancement of everyone. If you have ever had the
desire to study and train in the martial arts, don't miss the
opportunity to study with Master Lloyd. Come on in and try it out. The
team is waiting for you!
