“Steve Bowers and Paul Jaxon love what they do, and it shows. They have created a welcoming environment where people of all walks of life can pursue their love of Jiu Jitsu. The culture of the gym is the best thing about it. There is lots of rolling, right from the start. There are no mat bullies, everyone helps everyone to learn. No ego, respect for all, Jiu Jitsu for life, for the joy of it.”
– Ann A.
“Coming in as a new student, I was welcomed here from day 1. Every student here has been wonderful to me and helped teach whenever I had a question. Paul and Steve are the best instructors and really take the time to explain every detail and go over whatever you may be struggling with. If you are going to train anywhere, train here. I’m absolutely hooked, and look forward to every class I attend! Can’t say enough good things. Keep teaching us how to kick butt!”
– Laura L.
“Owners Steve Bowers and Paul Jaxon create a very family friendly atmosphere. The pace and structure of the class are spot on. Steve’s attention to detail during technical training enables the students to grasp even the more difficult movements with ease. If you are going to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mainline United is the place to train.”

“Took the Girls on Guard April 9th class and loved it. Such simple techniques but so effective! Paul, Steve and Annie are excellent teachers. Will definitely be back with my daughter and hopefully a bunch of her fellow high school friends! Thank you!!”
– Susan T.
“Steve, Paul & Annie were the best instructors at tonight’s self-defense course (Girls on Guard) for myself and my oldest daughter. We laughed a lot but learned so much more about potential situations, and staying safe. Can’t wait to go back – they allow you to retake the course for free as many times as you’d like. Highly recommend for any girl/woman to be stronger. Fighting and kicking the poor guy in the padded suit was scary but awesome. I hope to go back for Jiu Jitsu as well, and can’t wait to see their new space under Planet Fitness on Greenfield Avenue in Ardmore!”
– Gina L.
“I’ll honestly never find a better place to train.”
– Mia C.
“Wonderful group of people to learn and roll with. Very welcoming atmosphere, and a great mix of belts and people to work with from white to black belts, young kids to adult classes. The lead instructors are all knowledgeable and approachable. Highly recommend Main Line United BJJ”
