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!

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.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

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.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.

More Benefits

Kids learn how to listen respectfully to others without interruptions.

Our students learn the value of discipline as they pursue clearly-defined goals.

Martial arts instruction teaches kids how to accept defeat and learn from their mistakes.

Martial arts helps kids build core strength, balance, and physical coordination.
