My 5&1/2 year old daughter and I have been taking classes at Lake County BJJ for a little over six months now. Carlos is a fantastic teacher and coach. His classes are well organized, responsibly run, fun and very effective. Every student I've met and worked with has been friendly and helpful. Before coming here I almost gave up on learning BJJ due to some bad experiences at other schools. If you want a truly family oriented school that teaches safely and effectively without all of the big egos and "tough guy" bull, Lake County BJJ is for you!

Lake County BJJ is a great place to get in shape and learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Coach Carlos and Coach Patty are great instructors with adults/kids and happy to answer any questions you may have. My kids and I love training 3-4 times a week and have seen a great increase in flexibility, strength and cardio. BJJ teaches my kids confidence, discipline and respect for others, while at the same time sticking up for themselves and others. So if you ever wanted to try BJJ come to Lake County BJJ and see the difference.

Our son has come really far with jiu jitsu & he loves going, especially sparring. Carlos and Patty are incredible and our son really looks up to them - they really make a difference in those kids' lives. It's like a one really big family in there. We don't regret signing him up for jiu jitsu at all. Thanks, you two!

My daughter was having so much fun, I got jealous and signed up myself. Awesome instructors with crazy good deals on their website. Can't wait for my next class.

I have been attending classes at LCBJJ for about one year now. Coming from zero previous fighting and martial arts experience, jumping into a martial art definitely had me nervous at first. All of my nervousness was dispelled within the first week of class and I was hooked. Walking in, the atmosphere at LCBJJ is friendly and rewarding. Coach Carlos and Coach Patty are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly people who work hard with you to help you succeed. Their fundamentals class is great for people who are new to Jiu Jitsu and for older students who work hard on mastering the many basics of BJJ. Their advanced class is full of seasoned students who do not hesitate to share their vast knowledge with others and help to promote a friendly, fulfilling environment. The variety of morning and night classes help to fit class into your schedule even if you are a very busy person. All of this for me makes this review on LCBJJ an easy 5 star rating.

I started at LCBJJ in October of last year and have held off on writing a review until I had some time training first. I’ve been into fitness for years, but wanted to do something different. I have friends that train at other schools so I had a vague idea of what Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was and really wanted to try it. I started looking for a place to train close to home, but what made me choose Lake County BJJ (despite the 30-40 minute drive) was the convenient schedule. There really aren’t any other schools that offer daytime classes. I am a business owner and mornings are ideal, for me, to get some training in. I like the option of training mornings or evenings, once in a while both!

About the classes and gym – The training is great. I thought I was in decent shape, but have never had a workout as intense as the training at Lake County BJJ. Classes are an hour long consisting of a short warm up, technique demonstration plus drilling, and finally a few rounds of live sparring. Since starting I have lost 20 pounds and gained a higher level of endurance that I haven’t been able to achieve working out on my own. The gym itself is a good size, kept very clean and has plenty of parking.

So now onto what’s kept me going back and will keep me going to Lake County BJJ. Coach Carlos and Coach Patty are great instructors and very knowledgeable. As a 38 year old it’s a little intimidating starting something new that requires your body to move a certain way, but both Coach Carlos and Patty are always extremely patient. They take extra time to break techniques down, step-by-step, in a way that’s easy to follow. Aside from the great instruction the students are all extremely helpful. There is always someone around to answer a question or review a technique. The camaraderie is great and I always look forward to training. There are all kinds of students here, casual practitioners who come for fitness, some who train for self-defense and others who like to compete. Highly recommend going in to check the place out if you’re interested in training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

I travel a lot for work and have seen my fair share of academies. Lake County is extremely clean (so important), incredibly warm and welcoming, and also had some very high class BJJ. I highly recommend this academy and will be back!!

I've been going to Lake County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for over a year now. I couldn't have found better mats to step onto to learn and train jiu-jitsu. Coach Carlos and Patty are amazing at teaching jiu-jitsu. However it's not just that which makes them great. They build a better community around them. The support they share with you off the mat as well as on the mat is invaluable. Everyone around them is better because of them and it shows through the students that are in the gym. I really enjoy jiu-jitsu but I don't think I would love it as much as I do if it was not for Carlos and Patty.

About Lake County BJJ

Learn more about our instructors

Carlos Archila

Carlos Archila began his Jiu-Jitsu journey in 2005 and received his black belt under Mark Vives, in November of 2016. Early on, he found his calling as an instructor, teaching adult and kid’s classes at the rank of blue belt, a rarity at the time.

Carlos is a very detailed and dedicated instructor. It’s common to see him staying late after class to help a student who has any extra questions. A dedicated student to the art, he always stays on top of the latest techniques. His emphasis is repetition and chaining movements together.

Carlos also holds a BA in sociology from Northern Illinois University and understands the pivotal role a positive environment can have on the development of character. He is very excited to bring his brand of Jiu Jitsu to the Lake County area.
