Renzo Gracie Legendary Fighter, Teacher, and 6th Degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt

If you want to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, or MMA, you cannot find a better place to train. Evolve is one of the best academies in Asia, if not the best. It is the first and only Renzo Gracie Academy in Asia for a reason.  You have the highest quality instruction in the world at Evolve.  How many times in your life can you learn from World Champions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing in the same day? At Evolve, it is every day! Just remember that great teachers make great students! Gordinho was one of my top guys and now he is your teacher at Evolve.



Charles Hewitt Entrepreneur and Managing Director, 47 years old

I'm an Evolve member and I love it!  It is the only place where you can learn from World Champions and top instructors.  Above all, there is a great sense of camaraderie at Evolve among instructors, students, and staff.  Everyone is so friendly and supportive.  Another thing is that the schedule is by far the most convenient in Singapore.  7 days a week with up to 30 classes per day!  The facilities are incredible, too.  Nothing comes even close to Evolve.



Janet Jinyan Lee Member of the Singapore Armed Forces, 22 years old

The Instructors at Evolve are very experienced and technical.  It is a great place to train.  It's Evolve all the way!



Tracey Jennings Executive, 38 years old

Evolve has made a dramatic difference to my life; not only to my fitness but also to my general happiness and self confidence.  The instructors are inspirational; they create an atmosphere where you can go beyond what you initially thought possible.  Going to Evolve is the highlight of each day for me.  I am totally addicted!  I have made so many friends at Evolve, it's like an extended family.  It would have taken years (if ever) to meet such great people through living everyday life.


Brice Tan Student, 15 years old

I didn't know anything about martial arts when I joined Evolve almost 5 months ago.  Now, I've lost 21 kgs and have more discipline.  As I improved my skills in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I felt my self-confidence grow.  My fitness is so much better too.  Before I could barely even do any warm-ups and now I can do warm-ups without even breaking a sweat.  And my studies are better than ever.  Thank you to the Evolve Instructor Team!  They are always there to help anyone achieve their dreams and goals.



Kru Yodtong Senanan Grandfather of modern Muay Thai and Legendary Kru

Evolve Mixed Martial Arts is the most authentic Muay Thai school outside of Thailand. It is the largest official Sityodtong Gym besides the main one in Pattaya. The Evolve Muay Thai instructors have all trained with me since they were children - Nuengpichit Sityodtong, Chatri Sityodtong, Yoddecha Sityodtong, Daorung Sityodtong Yodrit Sityodtong, Saknarong Sityodtong, and Samart Payakaroon.  What is taught at Evolve is exactly the same as what is taught at the Sityodtong Gym in Thailand. How do I know? Because I am the founder, Kru, and owner of the Sityodtong Gym in Thailand.


Fabio Leopoldo Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt World Champion and Professional MMA Fighter

In my opinion, Evolve is one of the top academies in the world. Where else can you find world-class instructors in Muay Thai and BJJ teaching and training under one roof? I came to Evolve specifically to train Muay Thai under the World Champions and to learn the Sityodtong way. I have never seen such amazing Muay Thai.  As for BJJ, Gordinho and Gordo are top 5 teachers in Brazil.  I've known them since our days in Brazil together and they are one of the best.



Rafael Dos Anjos UFC Fighter

I love training at Evolve in Singapore.  My game has improved a big amount, especially in Muay Thai.  The Sityodtong Muay Thai Team is the most technical Muay Thai that I have ever seen.  I train my BJJ here under World Champion Gordinho.  I train my Muay Thai here under World Champion Nuengpichit. I train my Boxing here under World Champion Yodsanan. This is heaven.



Samart Payakaroon Muay Thai Legend and 4 Time World Champion

Without a doubt, Evolve Mixed Martial Arts has one of the best Muay Thai programs in the world.  The training is as real as it gets.  I am one generation older than Nuengpichit, Yoddecha, Chatri, and Ni, but we are all from Sityodtong Gym.  I can tell you from first-hand experience that they are all excellent.  Yes, they are all great Champions and fighters from Thailand too.  And they are also phenomenal instructors and teachers.  If you train with them, your Muay Thai game will progress to amazing heights.  My formula for success is simple.  If you train with the best, you become the best.



Mauricio "Tinguinha" Mariano 3rd Degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt and Professor

I've known Gordinho for over 25 years.  As kids, we practically lived at the academy, training 6-8 hours a day.  Gordinho is one of the best BJJ instructors in the world.  I do not use those words lightly.  He is a World Champion with a heart of gold and an eye for detail.  Most of all, Gordinho is one of the most genuine guys that I know. Team Evolve is lucky to have him.
