About American Top Team

The American Top Team lineage can be traced back to the legendary Carlson Gracie, where his vision, open-mind, and trademark aggressive attacking style have greatly influenced us. In 2001, the seed was planted to form American Top Team (ATT). The idea of building and training Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters to the highest caliber had been born out of a small, cramped 900 sq. ft. store front academy in Boca Raton, Florida. A small but dedicated group was having great success in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and North American Grappling Association (NAGA) tournaments throughout Florida. What took root from there is one of the best MMA teams in the World.

American Top Team quickly outgrew its Boca location and called Coconut Creek, Florida home. The headquarters located in Coconut Creek, is a sprawling, state of the art 20,000 sq. ft. academy and considered the largest MMA academy in Florida and one of the largest in the country.

ATT, as it's commonly referred to, has trained and developed over 70 fighters who have competed in the largest MMA organizations, such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), Strikeforce, Bellator, PRIDE, K-1, DREAM, and Sengoku.

That same knowledge, born out of hard work, perseverance, and dedication honed from our professional MMA fight team, has been passed down to our students who train in MMA, BJJ, Submission Grappling, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, Kids MMA, Women's Fitness, and Self-Defense. We bring all of this knowledge to our students where we instruct and train beginner and advanced kids and adults.

Today, the American Top Team brand of MMA and BJJ has spread from South Florida to more than 60 martial arts academies, across 31 states, 3 countries and growing.
