About the Academy

At Spangler Martial Arts you can expect to learn the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, wrestling and strike defense. These three disciplines work hand in hand with each other to help develop a well rounded understanding of how to protect our selves. To us, self defense is the ability to avoid being punched or kicked, while using the grappling arts to connect to an attacker and control his ability to inflict any further damage.

Here at Spangler Martial Arts we focus on the sports side of jiu jitsu. Self defense is inherent in jiu jitsu but the sports side of it provides an amazing workout as well as a close community of friends and family. It is a way of life.

The Spangler Martial Arts philosophy is simple: Effective instruction operates at a white belt mentality and incorporates repetition and basics to build a successful student. This style of instruction further elevates a students self esteem and confidence.

We offer classes for the beginner, intermediate and advanced student

For the brand new student, our introductory classes are designed to teach the basics of jiu jitsu. Our intermediate and advanced classes build upon the introductory classes to help each student develop their own style. Drilling is central to our belief system. We believe in building students from the feet up. We build a foundation of basics which will become the strength from which all other techniques and movements will operate from.

  1. What is needed to attend a trial class? My son and daughter are interested in practicing. Is there a long term contract that needs to be signed? What is the monthly rate to recession be instruction for two kids and an adult (kids are 8 and 10)?

  2. Hey guys,

    Im looking at getting into something like this. I work a crazy retail schedule. How do I go about picking out a class to try to see if I like it? Thanks in advance!

  3. Hi,

    My son (Leo/4.5 yrs old) and I are looking to start Jiu Jitsu training.

    Can you please tell me how much it will cost for him per month and then separately how much it will cost if I would like to sign up with him as well?

    Thanks so much!

    Kind regards,

  4. I’m a blue belt training under Jack Walker (a Pedro Valente blackbelt). I’ll be in the Raleigh area for a business trip in August and wondering if you allow visitors to train at your Academy.

    Thank you for your time,

  5. Hi, my name is Cris, 44 y.o. I am practicing traditional shotokan karate and Aikido. I was interested getting more information about your classes, knowing fees/contract.

  6. Hey! – I just started learning BJJ, and am currently based out of Myrtle Beach (but I am from Raleigh) – since I travel back and forth at times, I wanted to supplement my training at the academy here in Myrtle with some Private lessons so I can expedite my progress. Wanted to know your rates and availability – I might even want to stop by as soon as next week depending on my work schedule!


  7. Hi- I am interested in joining and noticed that you have 6 A.M. classes weekly. Are these classes for beginners or for more experienced clients?
    Additionally I was wondering what your upfront and monthly cost are for membership for one adult.

  8. Intro for high school teens? Total beginner but athletic, would not be interested in being stuck in class with kids. Would adult intro class be available to try?
