This has been transformational for our 12 year old who was having a difficult time becoming a teen. This has given her the confidence to hold her head high when walking into a room instead of looking down and being afraid. She looks forward to class and is gaining so much strength physically! They make getting in shape FUN!

Fantastic BJJ school for all skill levels. The instructors give one on one attention to everyone and make you feel like family as soon as you walk in the door.

I started coming to this school some time in the summer last year, back then I really had no self confidence and I was pretty much a scared kid. But coming here has made my self esteem shoot through the roof, along with my self confidence. Im always looking forward to training, and I love being able to learn new technique. This place is amazing.

Top 4 Benefits Of Working Out With A Partner

Top Four Benefits of Working out With a Loved One

There are few things quite like working out with a partner or spouse – a loved one of any sort.
No matter type of martial arts you both practice, there are some benefits to exercising
together. From perfecting your form to keeping each other motivated, you’ll find them here
Read on to find out more.

1) You can keep each other motivated

One of the most difficult things about an exercise regimen of any kind is sticking to it. You
might be tempted to take one day off, and that leads to a pattern of skipped practices and
classes. Working out with your loved one can keep you both motivated. You won’t be tempted
to stay on the couch together when you both want to practice your jiu-jitsu moves.

2) You have an automatic martial arts training partner

Even if you’re actively taking martial arts classes, you still need to practice your moves. And
what better to do so than with your partner? The two of you can go over what you’ve learned
in class together and treat each other as training partners. If you’re on different levels, you
can still make this work, since you’ll be learning from each other as you go along.

3) It’s easy to set up workout times since you know each other’s schedules

Another great thing about practicing martial arts with your loved one is the fact that you
know each other’s schedules. You can set up your combined workout times a week or two in
advance, and if you need to reschedule, then you won’t have to worry about playing phone
tag. Having a set schedule can keep you both on track.

4) Workouts will be much more fun

Everyone loves spending time with their spouse or partner. Usually, that time consists of
relaxing in front of the television, cooking meals together, or even having a date night. A
combined martial arts workout can be just another thing that the two of you do together.
You’ll have plenty of fun together. When both of you enjoy spending time on the sparring floor
together, your relationship – and your martial arts skills – will grow stronger.
There are four clear benefits to working out with your loved one, plus some additional ones
not covered here in detail. Your martial arts skills will improve since you will look forward to
your practices. You’ll also have more fun while doing so, and nothing makes a workout better
than this. Between the additional motivation, the set times, and many other benefits, you’ll
become a better martial artist in no time.
