” My son Joshua is a totally different child today emotionally and I only have the wonderful people at Champagne’s Martial Arts Academy to thank for that. He loves going to the classes every week and the life skills worksheets he gets every month to earn stripes on his belt have really helped him to see the brighter side of life. Monica is a wonderful teacher and has made a huge difference in my son’s life and I will be forever grateful!”

“My 3 boys all attend martial arts class so this is bringing me closer to them. I was at a point in my life were the gym was not enough of a challenge. Now I get to exercise in a fun productive way. I wanted to have an activity in common with my boys that would keep us active at home. I plan on being in the best shape of my life by the time I reach 40. I also want my boys to realize that you are never to old to learn something new. Not only do I get a great workout, but I’m learning valuable self defense skills at the same time. I don’t have to worry about any of my boys getting in an uncomfortable situation that they can’t handle. I have more energy now than ever before. I’m able to work all day, train Jiu Jitsu, and play with my kids. I’m starting to feel better about my self. Every class at Gracie Jiu Jitsu of Lafayette teaches me something new. The more I learn the better I am in class and in life.”

Women’s Self-Defense Course

“After my first class I was hooked. It was great to be taught by a female instructor. She gave me the confidence that if the techniques worked for her against a bigger stronger opponent, then it could work for me also. Monica and her team had a practical curriculum. I enjoyed the women’s self defense course so much that I wanted to learn more, so I started taking Gracie Jiu Jitsu classes. The instructors made the transition very easy. I’m also losing weight because it’s such a great workout. I’m using muscles I never knew I had. My life is better since I started Jiu Jitsu. I’m learning and achieving my goals as I train. I recommend Gracie Jiu Jitsu Lafayette to all women in the Acadiana area.”
