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.

Is Jiu Jitsu the fountain of youth?

Could Jiu Jitsu be the answer to our aging questions? Could Jiu Jitsu be the mental decompression we need at the end of everyday? These are all interesting questions that I would like to dive into.

Our lives are full of stress, pressure and fast food. We have deadlines to meet, kids have soccer and the wife wants to upgrade the house. What does this do to us? It potentially takes years off our lives. Stress is an evil by product of life.. not always a good one at that. But the bigger question is how do I handle it?

Let me explain how jiu jitsu could be the fountain of youth. Imagine if you will a program that not only helps your body physically, but also helps you mentally. What if I told you that during this training nothing else in life appears. What if I told you, you will be able to train for 30 minutes and not even realize time has went by.

This is not like running on a tread mill or even in downtown Louisville. It is its own thing! Taking your body and mind away from the stress that leads us all down that horrible path of gaining weight and mental break down. Being in my early 50’s with people mistaking me for my early 40’s is a good feeling. It did not come from eating vegitarian or even vegan. It came from many years on the mats training in Jiu Jitsu.

I would highly suggest looking up older jiu jitsu Grandmasters and Masters. Look at there bodys and listen to there minds. Quality of life is what everyone wants when they are older. Jiu Jitsu has just that ability.
