My son has only been here for a month but he loves the classes and has learned a lot. The entire stuff are super friendly and very helpful. They really make you feel like family. Mr scott does an amazing job with the kids. I highly recommend you bring your kids to try it out.

My 7 year old son and 8 year old daughter have both been training here coming up on three years. I finally gave in and started training myself about 4 months ago.
Has to be the most fulfilling thing i've ever done not only myself but also how I get to enjoy it with both of my kids.
Every one of the instructors is extremely kind and welcoming. They take pride in how they treat their new students. You will feel welcome.
Great workout, very stimulating mentally and the camaraderie/family atmosphere is amazing.

Omg where to start... Great atmosphere and fantastic people!! My daughter Rosie simply adores going to class and interacting with the instructors as well as the kids. Normally, before starting the class she would barely come up to another child and play; now she seeks then out with a sense of confidence I would of thought was never going to come. Her goal now is to compete and excel in the jiujitsu community. Like she told me the other day, "Daddy I want to be like the Pokemon song; I want to be the very best that no one ever was!" Kid's got dreams and I know all the awesome people at Gracie's will help her make it happen.

Investing in Yourself

How can I be the best me?

We all have had those days where we feel we are not worth anything. We have this feeling of disappointment in our lives and wonder how we got there. We find ourselves looking at other people’s lives thinking, how did they make the right decisions in life? We think to ourselves, I feel I should be making more money or living in a bigger house or driving this type of car. All of this is natural and so many people do this. But if that is so, is it healthy?

I say yes! Why? When you sit and think about where you FEEL you should be in life, it’s a sign you have not been giving 100% to your direction. This is a sign that you know deep down you should be putting more time in a certain area of your life. Sure, you could turn around and say that’s not healthy thinking and you should be happy where you are. Believing this is by all means you’re right, but believing you have more to give is the fire some people find in the meaning of life! 

A really good way to get the most out of life is to surround yourself with people who are at different stages of life. It could be someone with a solid business, marriage, parenting or in great shape. Do everything you can to not judge these people. Just be present to what they do and observe what they do with open eyes. Find inspiration and see where it takes you. There is a saying that anything good in life takes time to achieve… This is so true! 

Believing you’re doing good for yourself by sitting on the couch is a falsehood. It takes energy and drive to start something new. It is not a good idea to think you are too old to do something, when you do, you start to put limitations on your life. When this happens, this is when you find yourself sitting and wondering what if I would have done this or that. Never put limitations on anything you do… be free and open to what your heart is telling you. Go, be young, and live your life! Listen to no one who tries to stop you. One day it will stop on its own, so don’t delay! 

LIVE, LOVE and ENJOY LIFE
