I’ve been going for four months now and I am disappointed that I didn’t start sooner! I love training here, everyone is so friendly and encouraging.

This is absolutely the best place to learn and train! They are second to none! My oldest daughter loves learning karate and BJJ with Chris! My younger daughter can't wait to start! My son and I love training in BJJ! My wife is eager rejoin the kickboxing class! Chris and Susan have created an atmosphere at The Martial Arts Zone / Gracie Fighter NH where it feels like you're training with family, not strangers!

I've been a student of Chris's for over a year, but it feels like many for great reasons. Chris is an expert in self defense and Brazilian jiu-jitsu and it shows. He not only shows you many different tactics but also the philosophy behind what he is teaching you. I know that one day what he's taught me may save my life, let it save you too!

If you’re looking to get into martial arts, this is definitely the place you need to look into. From their professionalism to there vast knowledge of Brazilian Jiujitsu and Kickboxing, you’ll find it’s the perfect environment to learn and better yourself mentally and physically. I highly recommend the Martial Arts Zone!

I'm on my 3rd week of kickboxing and I'm kicking myself for not joining sooner! The staff is amazing and each day is a different workout routine. I leave each time in a bucket of sweat and feeling a little sore but all in a good way. I feel amazing and the strongest I've been in a very long time. If you're looking for a great workout that is fun with awesome people, this is the place to go.

I've been training at The Martial Arts Zone for about a month now and making the leap into this journey has been one of the greatest decision in my life. The culture and community at the gym is more than one can ask for when learning something new and uncomfortable. All training partners are respectful, and instructors are knowledgeable and eager to help. Chris and Susie really put together an amazing and supportive gym, I'm happy to be taking this journey with them.

Charles Frye

With over 12 years of martial arts experiance, I've taken lessons from various, talented, instructors. I can confidently say that Chris teaches an extremely effective self defense curriculum. Also, I appreciate his efforts to create a postive atmosphere. His classes are something I look forward to each week.

I've been training at Mixed Martial Arts Zone for about 9 months now. Chris is a great instructor and brings each person along at a proper pace. Everyday is a new challenge, but that's what makes it fun!

From beginners to advanced students, I would recommend checking out the academy and seeing if it's a good fit! Take advantage of their two week trial that they offer!

Brad Hosey

The instructors are very good and professional and are very nice and the environment is very friendly. I been with them a few weeks and learning alot.

Dominic Sapienza

As a 54 year old and trying martial arts for the first time, I really had no idea what to expect. I am very happy to say that, after four months, it has been an awesome experience for me! Chris and Susan have been so great to work with. They, and their instructors, are all-positive and they have created the perfect environment for all of us to train with each other and help each other out. They are very encouraging, very safety-conscience and great about letting everyone go at their own pace. I have been extremely impressed by how technical the training is and just how much technique and strategy actually goes into martial arts. I can tell you that, if you're just looking to "beat people up", this isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking to get great exercise (in body and mind) in a family environment, I could not think of a better place to be... at any age!

Gary Gagliardi

The martial arts zone is a great facility and run by amazing staff. Chris is a patient and knowledgeable instructor who actively to go into detail about techniques with all of his student. I have learned a lot from my time  there and would recommend the experience to anyone.

Josh Ebert

I started at the Martial Arts Zone for the kickboxing classes in January. The classes are always different and they keep you motivated! Everyone is so friendly and positive. I enjoy going to the classes and they are a big help in staying on track with my fitness goals.

Breanna Harris

From the moment I first shook Chris's hand I knew this place was special, and only three lessons in I'm convinced this is one of the best new things I've gotten into in a long time. It's amazing how welcoming and friendly everyone has been. Right away I started to feel like I belonged here even though I have no experience with martial arts. The instructors are highly competent, patient and challenging in equal measure, and always very kind and encouraging. They are all a genuine pleasure to learn from. Chris himself is more than a great teacher. He is a person of substance, and you'll start to feel the profound artistic and intellectual nature of Jiu Jitsu just from the way he talks. His energy and passion are an inspiration to everyone, and you'll really feel like you can do amazing things. Honestly as I'm writing this I just can't wait to go train again tomorrow.

Jim Morris

Mr. Konelas is great with my son who has adhd. He will not give up on my son. Miss Susan is a great person and also is very good with the children.

Rolande Pelletier

I have been attending classes at the Martial Arts Zone for just over three months and it's been amazing since day one! The welcoming atmosphere made me feel comfortable right from the start. I've never consistently taken self defense classes but after a few weeks I quickly began to build confidence in my skills and excitement for the journey ahead! I've become healthier both physically and mentally, I began in jiu-jitsu (also known as the "Gentle Art") and slowly transitioned into some kickboxing classes as well. Chris, Susan and the family down at the Martial Arts Zone welcome new students with open arms and positive attitudes. It's a marvelous location for adults or kids to train and grow as individuals.

Miguel Leslie

Love being here. Great training, amazing people and awesome atmosphere.

Bobby Brouder

I found the Martial Arts Zone by accident, and after looking at the reviews, decided to look into it further. I am very glad I did. A little over a month into training here, and I can tell I will be here for a very long time. The group of instructors are all great, and it really starts with the right attitude from the top with the lead instructor Chris Konelas. He is a really great guy, shakes your hand, tells you the real deal and uses his years of knowledge on Jiu-Jitsu and other martial arts to really drive home everything he teaches you. Everyone here is very welcoming and it's just been a great experience. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is such a great martial art to learn from both the practical standpoint, but also a sport perspective. I have really enjoyed my time here and I look forward to continuing to train here.

James Proctor

Awesome place and even better trainers. MY friend Miguel and I started about a month ago and we were hooked instantly. Chris and Susan are both great instructors who take the time to adhere to everyone's strengths and weaknesses. Now my friend and I are going any chance we get and my girlfriend has taken their kickboxing class and loves it just as much.

Gerardo Reyes

I cannot believe that it’s only been about a month since I started attending Kick boxing classes because honestly it feels like I’ve been a part of The Martial Arts Zone family for so much longer!  I felt welcome from my first class! I LOVE the energy here and I can’t say enough about Susan and Chris, their approach is unlike any other, making you look forward to stretching your abilities. It’s been a long time since I’ve worked out and I began by joining a gym which I quickly became bored with. I then found the Martial Arts Zone during a Google search and after reading the reviews decided to give them a call. I started with a two-week trial, and honestly I signed up before my two weeks were up because I enjoyed it so much.  No boredom here!! They have a fabulous way of changing things up and keeping it exciting.  The classes are comprised of male/female, young/not so young, fit/looking to get fit, and everything in between and EVERYONE is there to help each other.  There’s no competition it’s simply a great place to get fit while learning self-defense.  I highly recommend it to everyone!

Bernadette Vespa

I have been training jiu jitsu at the Martial Arts Zone with Chris for about 9 months now and it has been an amazing experience so far. I really lucked out finding this place because it is such an awesome atmosphere that makes learning martial arts fun, safe and effective. Everybody, no matter what belt level they are at, are great at teaching and making sure you are learning techniques and not trying to rip each others heads off. 
Great learning environment, amazing instructor, awesome people to train with make this academy a great one to start training in self defense.
