My son has been coming to this school for almost a year now, and he really feels that he is in the right place with the right team. The coaches, and administration are excellent. My son is looking forward to compete, and thanks to the training he gets he has the confidence to participate at world class level jiu jitsu.

I signed my 8 year old son up for classes here and he absolutely loves it. It’s a great way for him to get exercise, learn self defense skills, and learn how to better interact with other kids with confidence. It was such a great experience for him that it inspired me to join as well. We are both so very excited to come to class.

My seven year old son has been a student at MCBJJ for nearly a year now and in that time he has grown not only in jiu-jitsu, but also in respect, dedication and self-esteem. Coach Mike and Professor Josh are fantastic instructors, helping the kids not only with skills on the mat, but also helping reinforce skills that help them off the mat.

Whatever you are searching for you will find it here. I initially joined because I was looking for a home away from home. I got way more then I had ever hoped for. Professor Cruz, his instructors, and the students have all helped rebuild my confidence, self esteem, and gave me the tools needed to focus on what truly matters in my life. It’s an amazingly friendly environment with great instruction. Just like a loving family with amazing parents. I strongly encourage signing up.

My wife and I took my three year old son to the Carrollwood academy yesterday evening. The instructors were AMAZING. It is next to impossible to get my son to focus on just one thing. However, with the friendly, fun and patient environment the staff puts on Caleb (my son) couldn't get enough of it! We signed him up right after class and now I think I will be bringing my niece. I wish there was an option for 10 stars!

Does any of this

sound familiar?

You need help managing your stress.

You want to strengthen and tone your body.

You want to lose weight.

You want to be in good shape...

...but you have trouble finding a workout that gives you what you need

That’s a common problem, and it can be difficult to figure out which workout is going to give you the best results. You might also wonder whether there’s a workout that can help your body and mind at the same time.

Ideally, the workout you choose should help you improve your strength, gain flexibility, and be a healthy part of your daily routine. If working out feels like a chore, you won’t stick to it.

Feel the stress and tension melt away

Yoga is an ancient practice with modern appeal. By emphasizing core strength, balance, and flexibility, it helps people lose weight, tone their muscles, and manage their stress.

Practicing Yoga Helps You Let Go of Stress

Modern life is stressful. We all struggle to balance our work with our home lives, and to make time for family, friends, and hobbies.

Because it strengthens the connection between your body and your mind, Yoga helps teach students to manage their stress. To practice Yoga, you must be in the moment.

Over time, studying Yoga can provide you with the peace of mind you seek, while also helping improve your physical health.

Yoga Practice Improves Muscle Tone and Strength

If you want to tone your muscles, you must target them with exercises that force them to work. And one of the best ways to accomplish that is through the practice of Yoga.

Yoga uses your body weight to help you build muscle. By balancing and holding poses, you’ll train your core muscles and make your whole body strong.

As you learn and grow in your practice, you’ll build the strength to hold advanced Yoga poses – and you’ll carry that strength over into other areas of your life.

Practicing Yoga Helps People Lose Weight

Weight loss is a common goal stated by people who sign up for Yoga classes. They want to reconnect with their bodies and get in shape.

The practice of Yoga helps with weight loss by building muscle. Muscle burns more calories than fat does, and as you study Yoga, you’ll increase your metabolism, too.

Yoga will help you appreciate your body in a new way, and build the connection between your body and mind. You’ll want to give your body what it needs to be strong and healthy.

Stand Tall by Practicing Yoga

It’s common for people to have poor posture as a result of crouching in front of computers and mobile devices.

Practicing Yoga builds core strength and helps practitioners stand tall and strong. When your core muscles are toned, it’s easy to hold yourself straight and improve your posture.

Yoga can also improve your self-confidence. You can walk into rooms knowing you look and feel good – and that affects your posture, too.

This is an amazing academy. The whole family trains here and loves it. The professors, coaches, and administration are great. They treat you like family! We would definitely recommend to anyone interested in Jiu Jitsu!
