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!

Top Four Benefits of Working out With a Loved One

There are few things quite like working out with a partner or spouse – a loved one of any sort. No matter type of martial arts you both practice, there are some benefits to exercising together. From perfecting your form to keeping each other motivated, you’ll find them here Read on to find out more.

1)  You can keep each other motivated

One of the most difficult things about an exercise regimen of any kind is sticking to it. You might be tempted to take one day off, and that leads to a pattern of skipped practices and classes. Working out with your loved one can keep you both motivated. You won’t be tempted to stay on the couch together when you both want to practice your karate or kickboxing moves.

2)  You have an automatic martial arts training partner

Even if you’re actively taking martial arts classes, you still need to practice your moves. And what better to do so than with your partner? The two of you can go over what you’ve learned in class together and treat each other as training partners. If you’re on different levels, you can still make this work, since you’ll be learning from each other as you go along.

3)  It’s easy to set up workout times since you know each other’s schedules

Another great thing about practicing martial arts with your loved one is the fact that you know each other’s schedules. You can set up your combined workout times a week or two in advance, and if you need to reschedule, then you won’t have to worry about playing phone tag. Having a set schedule can keep you both on track.

4)  Workouts will be much more fun

Everyone loves spending time with their spouse or partner. Usually, that time consists of relaxing in front of the television, cooking meals together, or even having a date night. A combined martial arts workout can be just another thing that the two of you do together. You’ll have plenty of fun together. When both of you enjoy spending time on the sparring floor together, your relationship – and your martial arts skills – will grow stronger.

There are four clear benefits to working out with your loved one, plus some additional ones not covered here in detail. Your martial arts skills will improve since you will look forward to your practices. You’ll also have more fun while doing so, and nothing makes a workout better than this. Between the additional motivation, the set times, and many other benefits, you’ll become a better martial artist in no time.
