Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

Great Improvement with BJJ

Let me know what you think…
As we have stated before, Jiu Jitsu IS for everyone. Age is not a boundary but commitment to this practice is essential to achieve success.
Research has proven that the benefits of practicing Jiu Jitsu at an early age, help develop flexibility, strength and endurance. Additionally, Jiu Jitsu also increases social skills, concentration and self-confidence.

Raymond Hernandez, a police man from Downers Grove, signed up his son, Lucas three weeks ago; here is his testimony: “ I’ve noticed that my son is taking more initiative when it comes to sparing with other kids. When he started, he did not even dare to talk to the other kids. I recommend this practice to all parents and kids out there because this practice is incredible ” Lucas is not the only kid who has shown tremendous progress in the school, a lot of these kids have learned to confront certain negative situations and transformed them into something healthy and optimistic. Our kids know that courage and discipline are essential to become victorious in their personal life. We strive to impart the best education possible so they can apply it in their daily life.

At Gracie Barra Downers Grove, we care about the personal growth of our students, which is why we created a safe space for everyone to be themselves and have fun while learning. Our certified coaches provide students with customized training programs comparable to no other.
We invite you drop by to one of our no-cost, introductory classes and experience how valuable this practice is for you and your kids.
