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.

The Ultimate New Years Resolution

The New Year is here, and with thousands of goals and resolutions in sight as well,

2019 is the year you should try something new!

Martial arts is an established system that can better the entirety of your being.

Whether you need mental benefits like furthering your discipline muscle, physical

benefits like getting in shape, or maybe you’re just looking to make some new friends;

martial arts is for you.

3 Martial Arts Benefits

Physical

The most common New Year’s resolution you will hear is to get in better shape.

The physical benefits from martial arts are obvious.

Martial arts will get you in shape in a way you find fun. Your body gets more comfortable

with itself, so you have better control over your physical abilities as well.

Needless to say, arming yourself with the self defense tactics from martial arts makes

you better equipped to deal with some of the more dangerous physical obstacles in life.

Really, martial arts is more than just physical improvement.

Mental

Looking for more discipline, focus, and awareness?

There are several martial arts benefits, but the greatest is the mental toughness.

Martial arts helps connect your mind with your brain. It helps your mind gain the

necessary control it needs to do this. It helps you find comfort in stressful situations.

Maybe you want to be more adventurous, less scared of the world, or more adjusted to

your own body?

It’s more than just kicking and punching. The spiritual benefits are plenty. There has

always been a strong connection between the zen world and martial arts. This mental

improvement can help you deal with your anxiety, your depression, and any other

negative mental stressor that is plaguing your day to day.

Social

The social benefits of martial arts are often overlooked.

Maybe you’ve gotten in with the wrong crowd, and have decided that you need to add

fresh faces to your life. Maybe you just need some new friends.

The martial arts community is one of the friendliest, most supportive, and inspiring

groups of people you will ever find. It’s a great place to make lifelong friends and

relationships.

You will find that the martial arts world is fascinating on it’s own, and that you could

spend a whole lifetime indulging in some of its pleasantries.

You will get addicted to the lifestyle and your new friends will be able to empathize.

Why just pick one New Year’s resolution this year when you can be apart of something

that covers so much more than just one improvement?

This new year, you could be smarter, healthier, calmer, and happier.
