Awesome place!!! My 14yr. old son loves it here. Very friendly and welcoming staff. They've been very patient as he learns boxing and muay thai. Top knotch trainers for sure! My son takes these classes in his off-season from wrestling. It keeps him active, and he gets to learn these other sports. Every night when he comes home he is excited to show us a new move. Thanks for everything!!!

Coach Vic grasciously allowed me to train at his gym while on my vacation. Awesome gym, great people, and I love getting a chance to learn from different people. I train Muay Thai but it was nice to get a little work in boxing. Can never work hands enough! I recommend training here if you can. Great training fair pricing.

I recommend this gym for anyone looking to learn martial arts or to get their body in shape. I'm enrolled in Muay Thai. During classes my limits are challenged and taken further. You'll always be active and learning inside of a hardcore yet healthy atmosphere. I leave every class with more confidence and a better understanding of Muay Thai.

This is a great gym for an experienced veteran or a green beginner. Coach Vic is very experienced and makes sure to work with you enough so that you are always learning. Vic has a vast knowledge of martial arts and studies it more than anyone I've ever met. I always feel welcome at Southpaw and I know the other people training there will always help me or give me advice if I need it. Southpaw is a unified group that you can always count on for good training. It's a great location too! Right on 35 North in Neptune, right down the street from Asbury Park.

Great gym and great people. Vic and Steph make a great team. Virtual training (boxing) has been fantastic, always a challenge and something different.

I have been at southpaw for about 2 years and I must say this is my home away from home. All of the coaches and staff members are helpful and kind. The owners Stephanie and Vic don’t treat the gym members like clients, they treat them like family. I would highly recommend this gym to anyone who is looking to get a great workout and meet some great people.

If you are looking for a place that offers great training through "tough love" then this is the place to be young or old. Stephanie and Vic make an awesome team and go above and beyond for youth and their community. South Paw teaches more than just skills and fundamentals of the class but also lessons that can be used through out life through encouragement, empowerment and positivity.

Met Coach Vic and Stephanie when I was in a very Dark place in life and I thank the Lord for putting them dead smack in my path. Not only the training that Coach offers at Southpaw gym is on point but he and his wife treated me and my sons like straight up family from day one. Definitely recommend it for 1on1 private training or a family thing . Check them out you'll see.

I had a flashback of the first week I worked out at the gym in Ocean with Vic Lashley. I skipped the second week and came back the third week and told coach Vic I couldn't even sit on the toilet my legs hurt so bad lol. Some of the best workouts I ever had. I'll be traveling from Edison to bring my kids to work with coach Vic.

The Best Place to train and get in good condition. Well taught from the heart. Family atmosphere. When you love what you do it shows. The owner a godly man that beliefs from heart and soul. He lives, sleep, and eat South Paw.

JJ Sims; May 12, 2016

I joined Southpaw 3weeks ago, little did I know this was going to be the best decision I have made in a long time. Everyone is so motivating and helpful no one puts you down,everyone pushes you not to give up. Vic is awesome! If your looking for a good gym SouthPaw is a great place. We all became a little family.. I look forward to my boot camp class Monday -Friday

Vic is a very experienced martial artist and boxer with decades of experience. Both his wife Stephanie and Vic have a heart of giving back to the community and offer programs to help the youth in the community. They also have very practical programs self defense programs and effective striking and grappling programs for MMA. They have a great boxing for fitness program also. I highly recommend South Paw.

Mychal Colalilo; June 16, 2016

Vic is absolutely amazing. He offers a life time worth of martial arts knowledge, instructed towards real life situations. I've been a long time participant in his combat submission wrestling class and I can't speak highly enough about it. I have been in the fitness industry for 11 years and I would recommend ANYONE trying out one of the many classes offered at south paw.

Freddy Ewan; December 19, 2016

Great gym, very knowledgeable trainers, and a warm hearted staff. Had such a great experience there! I can't wait to go again.

This isn't just a business this is family .. been with South paw for years .. my son has won several titles here training to perfection satisfaction is a must .. great owners n staff .Join asap .you're missing out .. on greatness .
Dick Heller; October 1, 2016
I took private boxing lessons with Vic once or twice a week for almost two years. I'd still be going if I wasn't transferred to another state for work. He started teaching me during a very difficult time in my life and his teaching and mentor-ship helped me through it. I can only hope that I transfer back to NJ in the next few years so I can continue learning from one of the best. Vic's wife Steph is a sweet heart and very understanding when it came to my work schedule and scheduling another training session. They really make you feel like family. Good things.
James Sigua; March 22, 2016
Southpaw gym is amazing. A dynamic mix of workouts. Plenty of space to train. Vic is a wealth of knowledge, one can learn multiple arts and has all the equipment for an individual to prep for boxing/martial arts. Highly recommended!
Jessie James; December 7, 2015

REAL Krav Maga is now available at the gym! And it's not that fake cardio krav maga that other places are trying to put out as Krav Maga.
Rita Spader; June 8, 2017

My son has been coming here for 4 years. 
Hands down the best thing my son does. 
Coach Vic is awesome with the kids... Teaches the kids discipline and dedication.
