See what other ATT drop in students had to say about their class:
I was visiting for a few days and train out of Canada so I dropped in for the BJJ classes. The staff was helpful and friendly. The students are generally friendly and helpful and bring very little ego to the mat. There’s several black belts at this school, all who roll with the students, which is certainly a plus, and something you won’t find everywhere. It is not difficult to get some direction from the higher belts, as they have as many purple/brown/black belts as white belts.
I should also note that this is a good school if you are starting out in BJJ. They don’t appear to throw any white belts “through the grinder” and have “fundamentals” classes for starters.
I was visiting Fort Lauderdale for work and needed a break so I researched local Jiu Jitsu schools. The staff at American Top Team was extremely friendly when I stopped by to ask about a single drop in class.
I came early for the no-gi class and was able to warm up on the mats since there was no BJJ class ahead of us. (MMA has a separate training area in the building) Master Junior ran a great organized and efficient class. HE helped pair me up with students of similar skill while we were rolling. The students were great, no egos. Overall this seems like a great school to train at or just pop in when you need a break from your vacation. I would absolutely stop in again when I’m in Fort Lauderdale.
