What ours students have to say about us!



Zein Rasheed Purple Belt

      Not knowing the directions around Boca Raton was the best thing that happened to me since coming here, as I mistook ATT Deerfield for being the closest mma school to my house. Not only did I find a great teacher in Master Rafael Rebello, but also a dear friend. When he first greeted me in my tryout class, I felt right at home.In addition to ATT Deerfield’ s fun family atmosphere, there are several things that set it apart from the rest. To begin with Master Rafi has a clear plan for each month and structures the class around a specific set of techniques. He also explains the techniques clearly and adjusts them to suit all the different levels in class. There are also several classes during the day and throughout the week, so you can pick those that best fit your schedule. This also means that the classes are small, which allows you to watch Master Rafi break down the technique from every angle. Most importantly, there is enough room for everyone to roll under his watchful supervision. And the adjustments he tells you to make while rolling become part of your game that you would never easily forget. Although I wasn’t sure that jiu jitsu was for me when I first began training, I can confidently say that Master Rafi has got me hooked on it!

To me ATT Deerfield is more than just an mma school. It’s my home away from home.

I have had the pleasure of training at American Top Team for 10 months now and have to say that it has been an amazing eperience. Mr. Rafael Rebello is an outstanding teacher and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner. Mr. Rebello is very patient and thorough in the application of instruction that he gives. His attention to small details and body position mechanics and placement has allowed me to develop beyond my initial expectations. He is honest, patient, respectful, humorous, and has a level of integrity and energy. Mr. Rebello readily gives feedback and is always willing to go the extra mile and meet the students as needed. I have been involved in martial arts for 20 years and have had the pleasure of being influenced by many great instructors. I would like to say that I hold Mr. Rebello in the highest regard and he is one of the best all-around instructors I have ever had. I would highly recommend him both on a personal and professional level.

Sincerely,
