Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.

Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques
The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.
By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.
Best of all, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.

There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.
Studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.
Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.
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.
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 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 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.
