Here Is What People Are Saying About URSA!
"BEST BJJ school in SE Michigan!! Before finding URSA Academy I tried many different BJJ schools around SE Michigan but none can compare. URSA Academy provides great instruction and support for all levels of experience, athleticism, age, and gender. 

 Part of the greatness of this school is the culture among students as everyone is excited to learn and teach from each other and all egos are checked at the door. Students attend URSA Academy with a wide array of goals: some just like to get into better shape, some like to compete, others find confidence in their ability to defend themselves, and the list goes on. 

 If you're looking for a new place to train, or just don't know where to start, URSA Academy would be my first recommendation."
Eddie Clarke
"My son and I started jiu jitsu as way to get him out from behind the glow of the Xbox and get me off my 50lbs. overweight butt! I had no idea it would transform not only our bodies but our mindset and even our relationship.

In 8 months, I lost over 50 lbs. and learned to push myself harder than I had in many years. My son reached a level of self confidence and determination I never knew he was capable of. I never looked at him as a go getter or even someone who wanted to compete. He begged to compete in a local BJJ tournament. I had no expectations and to be honest didn't have high hopes. He blew me away with his skills and took home a silver medal. More so than winning was his attitude in defeat. His first words after a hard fought loss were, "I cant wait to compete again". Super proud jiu jitsu dad.

I have recently moved to Portland and it was heart breaking to leave what have become lifelong friends and family I made it Ursa. I still keep in touch and plan on visiting as soon as I go back. Professor Kris is a great and easy to understand teacher who places a lot of emphasis on getting the fundamentals right. He even helped me find my new school out here in Portland.

Great people. Courteous, friendly and no ego. Probably the cleanest school I have trained at. 
Professor Kris will teach you roots jiu jitsu that holds up anywhere."
Carlos Casarez & Family
"I have been training at URSA since July 2015. As a young woman signing up for her first Brazilian jiu-jitsu class, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I was admittedly cautious at first, knowing I had three classes to decide if this was for me or not. My first experience with the coaches and other students was so incredibly welcoming and positive that I have been with the academy ever since. In only a few short months, I learned more than I ever would have thought possible.

At URSA, you will find the best instruction in Michigan from Professor Kris Magers. The academy environment is always family friendly and welcoming, as well as incredibly clean. Prof. Kris and Amy emphasize the importance of putting safety first on and off the mats, and the way they run the academy is a testament to how much they care for all of their students.

On a personal note, I recently competed in my first tournament at the Chicago Open, taking home bronze. My training partners and coaches have become some of my closest friends and greatest supporters. I could not have done it without them. You will never feel pushed into competing though the option is available if you are interested-- at a local, state, or international level.

I encourage anyone interested in jiu-jitsu to come to URSA and try it out. If you are looking for a sport, hobby, or self defense, no matter your age, race, or gender, you are sure to feel welcome."
Marissa Finch
"If you're looking for a team environment, one on one coaching, and insightful instruction, URSA Academy is an excellent choice. I can honestly say that all members of the gym were as interested in my development as the coaches and staff. I learned almost as much from my peers as I did from Kris. Moreover, the size of the class is perfect; it seemed common to be stopped mid-activity and given individualized instruction on how to improve my form. Lastly, Kris is able to break each technique down into its individual parts so that even those of us who were new to the sport could understand and improve on a daily basis. 

URSA Academy is a great place to learn an incredible sport and make some great friends while doing so."

A Word From Professor Kris Magers, Amy Magers & Your Training Partners at URSA Academy
​RE: My Challenge to You..

To Goal Driven Individuals Looking to Embark on a Successful & FUN Martial Arts Journey,

Hi I'm Kris Magers, the founder & certified Black Belt Professor of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Kids Martial Arts at URSA Academy in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My challenge above may sound like a tall order, but I am so confident because I have seen Brazilian jujitsu and martial arts transform people; from the smallest & weakest young guys, to older people who don't want to be 'frail' any longer, and women who are tired of feeling afraid, into competent & strong BJJ practitioners who are brimming with confidence. 

If you have absolutely zero experience in martial arts or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, GREAT! You're exactly like 95% of our students when they got started! If you are an experienced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) practitioner or competitor, fantastic! We have incredible & welcoming training partners from white to black belt ready to roll & compete along side of you in local, regional, and international IBJJF tournaments. The relaxed atmosphere, fun and friendly people, and clean & comfortable training environment at URSA Academy is one you have to come and experience firsthand. I guarantee you'll find a home base here that will help you achieve your personal health, fitness, and martial arts goals.

Develop Confidence & Increase Self Esteem!

Increased self confidence is one of the biggest improvements we notice in our students as they progress in their Jiu Jitsu training at URSA Academy. We've seen men & women who used to walk through the door looking to avoid notice now stand taller with the shoulders back, walking confidently among their friends & training partners, ready to start their classes. It comes from a combination of getting in shape, feeling strong, being surrounded by incredibly supportive training partners, and knowing that their learning the most effective form of self defense martial arts around.

Get in Incredible Shape & Lose Weight!

If you have weight to lose and you haven't found success in the standard gym setting, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at URSA Academy is for you! No more falling through the cracks like at a big box gym, or paying a fortune for a personal trainer. At URSA Academy, our coaches & Professor Kris Magers operate like the perfect middle ground. Our class roster system, 7 day a week schedule, & one on one relationships help hold you accountable, while building in flexibility to accommodate your everyday life. This perfect blend that we've developed over our years of coaching will help you achieve your long term fitness goals through consistent training on a sustainable custom schedule.

Learn Real World Practical Self Defense & Gain Peace of Mind!

There is no better peace of mind than knowing you can protect yourself and your family should the need arise. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the martial art trusted and used by our military service members, police officers, and air marshals  to immobilize and maintain control of an assailant without the use of weapons. Designed for a smaller weaker person to take down and dominate an opponent of any size using leverage, timing, strategy, and skill, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is the ultimate self defense system for men & women of any age and size. (...its great for kids too!)

Relieve Stress!

No matter how much you love your job, school, & family, everyone can benefit from some time to do something just for YOU! Too often, people indulge in unhealthy habits as an effort to reduce stress or "decompress" after a long day. BUT, there is NOTHING that can relieve stress like a great day on the mats, training with great people, & challenging your mind & body in an amazing class. Try out ONE CLASS. Come in & "sweat out your day" and I KNOW you'll be more relaxed after class than you started.
