Have been there for just over a month now. I came in with zero BJJ experience and it has been awesome. Butch and everyone else have always been patient and willing to show/explain anything I've ever asked. Aside from that, they're just a good group to be around and make each class fun.

Butch And Lisa are wonderful people. My son has been training there since 2009 and have been treated just like part of their family! I am proud to say my son trains there as they are a top notch gym. He has brought home a lot of gold thanks to Butch and his training partners.

I have trained many places as I travel for work. Butch and the guys there are great at what they do and at passing on there knowledge to others. They are always helping and teaching others. Great atmosphere and many different classes are available.

I began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu while in college in June 2017 because I wanted to learn a new skill and try something that seemed unique. I never had an athletic background before starting and the instructors, including Butch himself, have been nothing but kind, patient, and informative since day one. I went from training there one day a week to now five days a week, not only because I enjoy the challenge and workout of BJJ, but also because the environment is always positive and coming to class will easily turn your day around for the better.

Best gym around. Butch, Lisa and the whole staff treat you like family from the first time you walk in the door. Highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for quality training.

I got station with the military in Charleston in 2010 I started looking for a gym here and quickly was pointed in Butch's direction by multiple military people already assigned here. I have been to gyms across the country and I can tell you that you will not find better and more honest people than Butch and his staff. They truly care about helping people. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to train in BJJ or just looking to get in better shape and some fun doing so.

Wanted to do technical boxing/BJJ and was told by the "gentleman" working-- after he looked me up amd down that I would be allowed to do cardio kickboxing (not technical and not mitt work- no skill building). Staff was very rude. I went to an intro bjj night and given no instructions by the staff other than "roll". Would recommend if you know someone who already goes there (so you dont just get stared at angrily) and kickboxing looked great for instructed cardio (but not for becoming fight-ready). Staff was insanely rude/ignoring you (didnt meet Butch) the 3 times I attended. Two of the other students were outstanding with trying to introduce/include me, and were patient and kind. But the staring, and overall hostile environment was not ideal if I'm going to pay to be there.

Just a bad environment

I have trained with Butch Hiles Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA in Charleston WV for over 2 years. I initially started training because I wanted to lose weight and I had always been interested in martial arts but never actually tried any of them. In the beginning I was nervous because I figured that people that had been training for a while would just beat up on me, but what I found out was the exact opposite. Everyone had a great attitude and they were really helpful. Butch is a great teacher and he really tries to bring out the best in his students. I would recommend Butch Hiles BJJ and MMA to anyone who is looking for quality training in a fun and friendly environment. So if your in the Charleston WV area you should definitely stop by and check out the gym, I promise you won't be disappointed.

A relaxed atmosphere with friendly and welcoming people. They were nice enough to let me stop in and train with them for the evening while I was traveling for work. I will definitely be back if I'm in the area again.

Great gym, great people. I started bringing my kids there over three years ago to bullyproof them, and now I haven't had problems of that nature for a long time. Some of my kids moved on to adult class, so I didn't have an excuse not to take class myself and have been training with Butch for over a year now. You won't find a better instructor or person than him. Also have to give shout outs to the other great instructors: Benji: Krav Maga, James Jenkins: Kids, Justin Turner: Friday class, Brian: No gi, James Mabon: Cardio kickboxing. and any others I may have forgotten.

ABKJ has outstanding coaching and curriculum. Led by Butch Hiles who sets the tone of patience leadership with innovative martial arts techniques, ABKJ has an atmosphere without attitude where it is fun to work out and everybody gets along. I've been a student at ABKJ for about a year and am pleased with my development and with the camaraderie with the other students.
