  • 5 star review  The best BJJ in the valley, the Coach is very knowledgeable and has competed at a very high level. I have enjoyed my time learning and rolling with him and others who have been in the gym. The culture is very inclusive and a lot of fun and just an overall great environment for jujitsu.

    5 star review  I am a Black Belt,I have been training Jiu Jitsu for 14 years. Training at Micheals academy has been the piece I've been missing to level up my training. The detail during class is second to none. The environment is very welcoming to all levels. I really enjoy the small details that make a huge impact in my game. I would recommend The Egley Training center to beginners and advanced bjj players. Thanks Mike

    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  Extremely nice gym! Spacious, well lit, clean, high ceilings, changing rooms and plenty of gym bag space while you roll. Not to mention Right off the interstate and easy to find. There are people here from nearly a dozen other gyms that share in goals, disciplines, smiles and laughter. I've never known a more accepting community than this. The instructors are among the best in the state!
    Michael is a thesaurus of techniques and a braniac for tactics. Not to mentions he gives great hugs. That alone is worth the price of admission.

    5 star review  Mike Egley is an amazing coach---a super technical practitioner, a gifted instructor, and a caring human being.

    Boise has a thriving jiu-jitsu community, but Egley Train is incomparable even in such strong market. Egley trained at Carlos Gracie and then got his black belt from Keenan Cornelius. He brings a wealth of experience and technical prowess in both gi and no gi training. He's incredibly well versed in the fundamentals but also has a gift for understanding and incorporating advanced and emerging techniques.

    The gym is clean, safe, and welcoming. The location is easy to access right off the freeway interchange at Cole Rd. The instruction is precise, practical, and digestible. The open mat rolling has got a great tempo--perfectly balanced with technique, energy, and safety. And the team has the right cultural balance of respect and care without being overly stuffy or stringently hyper-traditional.

    All levels will benefit from training here, whether your a hobbyist or a competitor----a novice or advanced. You'll be welcome and you'll have a home.

    Do yourself a favor and check out this incredible new gym.

  • 5 star review  A few weeks ago, I stopped in to Egley Train Boise Jiu Jitsu while I was in town for a competition and can I just say "Wow!" I've been to dozens of gyms, and this facility is definitely one of the best ones I've been to. The facility is located in a very open plaza with plenty of parking and nearby shops and restaurants. It is brand spanking new!

    When you first walk in, you're greeted by friendly staff (including head instructor Mike Egley's adorable baby son). To the right is the large, white mat space soaking in just the right amount of sunlight, which exemplifies the cleanliness of this facility. To the left is a spacious communal area with a workspace that is inviting for visitors to watch classes in session or for students to open up a laptop and work remote while waiting for class to start. Then you head to the back where there are large dressing rooms, separate bathrooms, and an infrared sauna!

    Now to the class and people - everyone here was super friendly! I get nervous meeting new people, but everyone made an effort to introduce themselves and welcome me. Mike taught class for that day. His instruction is so clear and detailed. He walked around to correct students, but specifically helped students adapt the technique to their size and body stature. [I'm pretty small as you can see in the picture, so that is very important to me.]

    I absolutely recommend stopping by Egley Train Boise if you're ever in the area. If you're looking to start jiu-jitsu in Boise, you're not going to find a better place. And if you're looking for a new place to train in Boise that is friendly and high-level, this is it. You won't find a better facility or better instruction in the 100-mile radius.

    To Mike and team - thank you so much for having me. Really look forward to visiting again!

    5 star review  Professor Egley was one of the first sparring partners I worked with when I started Jiu Jitsu and he is a class act! With his size and skill level he could've murdered me! However, he was such gentle giant and helped me progress in to a decent grappler. For anyone new looking to try Jiu Jitsu, I highly recommend Mike's school. You wont be disappointed.

FAQ

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.
