Ulises stepped on the mats for the very first time 4 years ago. As a young child facing the complex movements for the first time, his parents were very concerned if they have placed him in jiu-jitsu too early. Little did they know that this boy would become such a worrior today.

Despite the learning curve in the beginning, Ulises has been very determined in his jiu-jitsu journey, and his parents has always been very supportive, making sacrifices necessary to help him progress in this journey. After 3 years of training with a different team, Ulises found Gracie Barra Downers Grove and has been a strong pillar of the little champions team.

During the interview, Ulises’ father, Mr. Angel Rosas, shared with us how he appreciate the strong team of instructors here at Gracie Barra Downers Grove. Coming from a competition-driven jiu-jitsu school, Mr. Rosas witnessed how Gracie Barra teaches jiu-jitsu to transform kids’ mentality from all about winning matches to focusing on balancing their techniques with the right intention. Over the course of a year with GB Downers, Ulises now focus on protecting other kids at the school and stopping bullying from taking place. From what he has seen, Ulises developed a strong character on being a respectful and attentive student, and always willing to help other kids around him grow.

Ulises has been an outstanding competitor among the little champions of Gracie Barra Downers Grove. His dream is to be a jiu-jitsu world champion and have his own jiu-jitsu school. We are so thrilled to have Ulises and his family supporting the spirit and ideas we share here at GB Downers!
Thank you Mr. Angel Rosas for sharing your testimony with us!
