Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also known as BJJ, is the “go to” Martial Art for self-defense, fitness, and mental fortitude.
Endurance BJJ‘s kids program teaches kids about self-defense and sport competition, while providing a fun atmosphere in which they can learn.
Endurance Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has literally changed my life. From my first day, I’ve been welcomed with open arms. It’s more than just a place to learn Jiu Jitsu. It’s a place to make friends who become family, get into great shape, and learn real life self defense skills that work. James’ resume speaks for itself, as one of the most well known black belts in indiana, and in the country. Please join the family!
The best part of Endurance BJJ is the community! I’m female, not particularly athletic, have two elementary-age kids, and I was super intimidated by the idea of grappling before I joined. Who would have known that I would make so many friends in so short of a time? As a beginner, the upper belts are super welcoming, fellow students are more than happy to help you get started, the instruction is top-notch, and best of all…my kids adore their coaches (shout out to both Darrell and AJ…we chose to come here over other gyms we looked at because the kids were so excited about having a cool coach to teach them!) Every day I learn something new, and when I leave practice, I am energized and motivated to come back for more, give it a try – you’ll love it!
When I began BJJ 18 months ago I was nervous and unsure it was a great idea at my age. I was a former college swimmer at a ripe age of 43, having never trained a martial art. My fears quickly subsided due to the great learning environment at Endurance and IBJJA. The experienced practitioners (upper belts) are always quick to teach a move, give pointers, pick you up when you’re experiencing difficulty rolling, or learning a new move. Initially my goal was a new hobby, but what I found was a journey of self-betterment and a lifestyle that spoke to me. I’m eternally grateful for what I’ve learned, for the friends I’ve made, the benefits to my life like stress reduction and the feeling of being on ‘a path’. One of the great things about training at Endurance and IBJJA is I can’t always tell you the life story of any of the students, but I can tell you a lot about their character!
