  • I have trained with Eddie many times and he is a great instructor and training partner. He is always willing to roll and knows how to push training partners while adjusting to their level of knowledge.

    I highly recommend checking out Checkmat Lake Norman.

  • Checkmat Lake Norman is one of the best places to train for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! The instructor, Edward Allen, is great with kids and adults, that naturally pushes his students to do the best that they can do. Checkmat Lake Norman is a great place for all people to come together to train and discipline themselves in the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu while being surrounded by a great group of individuals. This gym has made me fall in love the sport of BJJ!

  • I have been going to train with Eddie for about 5 months. I really didn't think I would enjoy Jiu Jitsu as much as I do, but Eddie makes it entertaining and fun. I would highly recommend getting signed up for his program. Brian C.

  • This is a great place. They teach real life situation, good behavior in life and they have fun in smaller classes which equals more individual attention. Thank Tim!

  • Lake Norman Martial Arts is incredible. Much better than the chain karate studios that try to sell you on signing a 3 year contract the minute you walk through the door! My son has excelled significantly more since we began here. LKNMA ROCKS!!!

  • I brought my two daughters (21 and 15), my daughter in law (28), my son (11) and myself to the self defense class taught today. We were given some great advice for daily living and taught some strong moves to get ourselves out of bad situations. Can't wait to do the self defense with a gun!
