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.

SHOCKING FACTS ABOUT BULLYING

SHOCKING FACTS ABOUT BULLYING

Shocking Bullying Facts and Statistics

According to statistics, bullying is an increasing problem. You might not know statistics, but you have seen the news reports over the past 10 to 20 years that bear out that it is still an issue. Here are some shocking facts and statistics that every parent and guardian need to know.

What are the Facts?

Many people are confused about the facts. News stories, while horrific, can be viewed as an isolated incident. They are not. Many kids suffer in silence for fear of retaliation from bullies and disappointment from parents. For themselves, they don’t want to be viewed as “weak” to others. Image is a big part of a kid’s life especially when they reach the teenage years.

So, we will enlighten you about some facts that have come to light through surveys and research studies into the problem of bullying.

10% of children are bullied regularly – This is according to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychology. This begins as early as elementary school and can teach kids that abnormal relationships like this are the “norm.”

30% of teenagers are involved in bullying – This is as the victim, the bully or both, according to Family First Aid. It is not uncommon for a victim to later become an abuser, perpetuating the cycle.

85% of cases are not followed up – This means that a teacher or administrator doesn’t pursue the reported threat and the bullying continues unchecked.

100,000 students carry a gun to school – Even with metal detectors and cameras, it is possible to get a weapon onto school property if a child really wants to. This escalating violence among school-age kids, including homicide and suicide is linked to bullying incidents. Consider Columbine High School and Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Arkansas. When authorities don’t act, bullied children are taking matters into their own hands, taking their rage and anger out on the bullies themselves.

As many as 160,000 students miss school each day – Much of this is due to bullying. Kids are afraid of being harassed and avoid the place of their torment – school.

80% of high school students have been bullied online – Cyber bullying is the newest form of harassment for bullies. It has led to suicide in several cases with students being harassed for their appearance and sexual orientation. Even after the death of the student, siblings have been cyber bullied as well.

Cyber bullied teens are more likely to consider suicide – With over 80% of teens carrying a cell phone, it is easier for bullies to harass their victims without notice and even after school is over.

Bullying is a growing and very real problem. The news is littered with stories of school shootings around the world as well as self-inflicted deaths directly related to bullying. Become part of the solution and help stop this epidemic.

We will be hosting a Rise Above Bullies Workshop. We have 2 sessions available October 16th at 630pm or October 17th at 10am.
