  • The owners are very kind and personable. Something I love is it is family run.. all the dedication and time Mike and Emily put into this gym is special.
    The team is welcoming and patient with new people. My son loves the kid’s class … it’s a great place to start because all the kids are newer so they are all learning at the same pace!! 😊

    High competition for higher belts and great for beginner white belts.

    Another bonus- They also have open mat on both Saturday and Sunday’s!!

    I joined Egley Train Boise in October 2022 because or their 6 week beginner program and have been going regularly since then. They have amazing coaches, staff, and a great clean facility. I have gained so much knowledge and confidence in a short amount of time. I highly recommend Egley to anyone who is new to Jiu Jitsu or is looking for new place to train. I have no prior experience in sports, so diving into Jiu Jitsu was a huge step for me and everyone at the gym has been friendly, helpful, and always supportive. I love being a part of this gym and community!

    The training is top notch a with a balance of skill levels for every one. It’s a welcoming environment that has an excellent balance of focussed training, great rolls, skills education and deliberate high level Rolls for the advanced.

    What a wonderful place to train. I’ve known the instructor for many years, since he was a blue belt. He’s very skilled and more importantly, very articulate and able to break down what exactly he is teaching. He has excellent command of the English language and that makes his teaching much more precise and clear. He trains with everyone and will answer any and all questions that a student has. Highly recommended.

  • Swung by to train today. Really impressed by the set up. Super friendly group, great instruction, and clean. If you are in the are you should check the gym out. If you are on the fence about joining a gym, just go in and chat with them, maybe watch a class. All the hallmarks of a quality BJJ gym. Lucky to have them in the Treasure Valley.

    I dropped by while visiting in town and had an awesome experience. I highly recommend checking Egley Train out for anyone wanting to try out Jiu Jitsu or if you’re looking for a gym in the area. Michael’s full of knowledge and the environment is very friendly. From great explanations on the fundamentals to helping diagnose some more technical moves, Michael and team were great.

    I found the members of the gym to be very willing to help and share their knowledge as well. This is a solid place to pick up the game or get great sessions and rolls in with good competition. I’ll definitely be back in the future!

    Came for a drop in class, since I’m new to the area. The first thing I noticed was how clean everything was and how nice the ladies at the front desk were. They got me checked in and gave me a run down of everything, which I appreciated. The instruction was very clear and had some wrestling aspects mixed in, which I enjoyed. After drilling several positions, the class was opened up to sparring. Everyone I rolled with was great and very respectful. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience.

If possible, please try to arrive 15 minutes before class so that you can meet the staff and instructor, sign a waiver, and become familiar with our academy!

For footwear, flip-flops/ sandals is a good idea.  No shoes are permitted on the mats.  That’s why walking up to the mats with flip-flops is a great idea for a seamless transition.

If you have a gi of your own, bring it!  If not, come in regular gym workout clothes (shorts and a t-shirt).  We have rental gis available as well as gis for purchase.

For a no-gi class, a rashguard and shorts should be worn.

And of course, a water bottle is highly recommended!

The word “jiu jitsu” derives from the Japanese “Jū” meaning “gentle” and “Jutsu” meaning “art”; literally, jiu jitsu is the “gentle art”.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a ground-based martial art, using the principles of leverage, angles, technique, and timing, as well as knowledge of the human anatomy, in order to achieve a controlled submission of one’s oppressor.  Unlike other martial arts that focus on strikes and kicks, jiu jitsu focuses on close-contact grappling holds and techniques, and the application of chokes and joint manipulations to control the fight.

A gi is a uniform worn during jiu-jitsu (as well as various other martial arts, including judo, karate, and sambo) training. The word “gi” comes from the Japanese term, “Keikogi.”

Keiko means practice; gi means dress or clothes. A gi consists of 3 pieces; the gi jacket, pants, and belt.

Different parts of a gi are strategically utilized for grips, chokes, guards, and other techniques during training. Typically, it is heavily stitched and usually made of cotton to withstand the rigors of daily practice.

The Gi is practical for replicating thick winter clothing (think winter jackets and pants), as we have seasonal weather in Boise!

Most definitely! In addition to being immensely FUN, training will increase your muscle tone, bodily coordination, cardiovascular capacity, muscular endurance, balance, and will (inevitably) reduce overall body fat. All that being said, please make sure you hydrate yourself properly before and after training.

Our Jui Jitsu is for everyone!  We are Team People.  Whether you’re a beginner or world-class black belt, young or old, overweight or in shape our Jui Jitsu program is for you!

If you’re judgemental, unkind to others, and not serious about positive change, however, our Jui Jitsu program is NOT for you.
