By far the most practical gift and sport I could have given my son. G has been with Mike and Jordan since he was five years old. Jiu Jitsu has given G a heightened sense of respect, discipline, and honor, and most importantly his new found confidence. I don't have to worry about G's ability to handle himself in any type of "bully" situations, nor do I have to worry about him making the right decision. This is a five star Jiu Jitsu location in Clarksville, Maryland. The best BJJ school in Maryland with stellar leadership from Mike Stewart and Jordan Stewart.
Hands down the best BJJ school I've ever been to. Provides a clean, safe environment and techniques that really work. If you're looking for the real deal BJJ school, you found it. It is convenient for Howard County and Carroll County, Maryland residents.
There are many reasons why I would recommend Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland, but the two most important reasons are the dedication and patience of all the instructors. They really do want to help your child learn and become an outstanding individual on and off the mat. The best Jiu Jitsu school in Carroll County!
If you're in the Clarksville area, make sure you stop at Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland! Mike's place is a top notch facility!
My son started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu two and a half years ago, at age five, and the amount of confidence he has gained is amazing. Mike and Jordan's passion for Jiu Jitsu shows in every class. There is a real sense of community here, and our son has developed wonderful relationships with his peers. I highly recommend kids of all ages in Howard County (and adults too) to check it out.
Recently visited this BJJ school in Howard County and was very impressed with the level of professionalism and the warmth with which I was welcomed. Mike and his people are first class. They also have a very clean facility. Above all, they offer authentic Gracie Jiu Jitsu. Two thumbs up!
Great instructors, great people, clean dojo...teaching 100% Gracie Jiu Jitsu and always keepin' it real to the fullest!
My son, Andrew (14 years old), has been training in BJJ for over a year now. He started training with another instructor/school, and he did well in competition and fell in love with the art. We had been looking for a solid place to train, and we discovered Mike and GJJ Maryland at a tournament where we noticed how well trained and disciplined his young competitors were. They were very technical, obviously well coached, and showed the utmost respect, professionalism, and sportsmanship. We were so impressed we switched BJJ schools and now drive 20 miles each way just to train with Mike and his team. Whether you are a novice or an expert, young or old, if you are looking for a place to train in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, this is by far the best school we have found in the state of Maryland! They use the Gracie system and offer training six days a week for all levels. They teach competition BJJ and self defense. Their self defense approach is perfect for anyone looking to build confidence and feel safe and learn the sport at the same time. It's one of the largest kids' programs around and is the perfect confidence boost for young kids. If you are a nervous parent because you associate danger with this sort of sport, please let me put your mind at ease and tell you that your child is in more danger of getting hurt if he or she doesn't know Jiu Jitsu. Great team, great program, great instructors at all levels of experience. They treat you like family and the price is comparable to any other quality program. So what are you waiting for?....call Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland and get started today!
Our kids started BJJ over two and a half years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it. The kids Jiu Jitsu program is stellar and provides the best foundation for the kids, not only with self defense (anti bullying), but with self discipline and confidence. Another bonus is the physical conditioning that they receive from training. They have been able to keep in shape during the off season of their other sports, which allows them to get back to training for soccer, etc. without missing a beat. Our kids have also made some incredible friendships along the way as well.
An amazing school with amazing instructors. I have been going on and off for under a year, but still feel part of a family. Everyone is SUPER welcoming and so willing to help you learn. With regards to techniques you learn there, it is top notch. Hands down the best BJJ instruction in Howard County, Maryland with very high level guys coming in giving seminars (Relson Gracie, Rener Gracie, Ryron Gracie, and Rhalan Gracie, to name just a few). Looking forward to the summer where I will be going much more regularly than I am now.
Great instructors, great kids! The best martial arts school in Howard County! This is authentic Gracie Jiu Jitsu. They give real situations like being approached by a bully. The lessons taught here go far beyond the mat and into their daily lives. It has made my son more self confident and is helping develop his sense of follow through (work hard, showing interest in attending, paying attention and retaining the lessons, attaining higher ranks/belts/stripes and so forth). It's a cycle of success!!!!
Fortunately, I didn't have to search very far to find the perfect martial arts facility for my kids and neither will anyone that checks this place out. Trust me, one visit and you will know your search is over. Very professional, safe, fun, and an extremely positive learning environment. I feel very fortunate to have my kids as students here, and I honestly feel they will be for life. If your child is on the shy and timid side, this place will help him or her come out of that shell. If your child is a little wild and crazy, this place will teach him or her discipline and respect. If your child is being bullied, this place WILL change your child and could even save his or her life.
Great place to train. I attempted Jiu Jitsu before when I was younger and never felt comfortable. I always felt like I was getting tossed into a lion’s den. Here at Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland, I felt more at home even as a new student. People were and are very helpful, and it's an overall fun place to be. You'll get into great shape, gain confidence, and meet all sorts of people. It really is like another family here to me.
If you're looking for Jui Jitsu or just street applicable self defense, Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland in Clarksville is your place. Not just the high level instruction, but the access to some of the best in the world. Mike and his team are passionate and friendly and just want to share Jiu Jitsu with everyone. These are the people you want to learn from.
Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland is the best place to train in Maryland where you have access to top Gracie/BJJ instructors and coaches on a regular basis. The dojo is in immaculate condition, and all GJJ MD coaches are very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. My daughter has also been training at team MD BJJ for nearly three years now and has learned very effective self defense techniques.
THE best place to learn self defense, hands down! Great instructors, great seminars, and clean mats. You'll even lose weight and gain confidence. Easily the best martial arts school in Carroll County Maryland!
Great school. Excellent instruction, clean dojo, and perfect location. Top instruction from high ranking Gracie affiliates from around the world. I also haven't experienced this much of a solid team aspect at any other gym. Leave your ego at the door. Come train, and have fun!
Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland is my five year old's favorite place to be! It is a clean, safe, and positive environment to train. The instructors are excellent role models, and you can tell they love kids and their jobs! Even though he is only five years old, I am confident my son could defend himself from a bully of any age or size! My favorite part is the smile that is on my son's face the entire time he is there! Hands down best place to train for boys and girls of ALL ages!
I will be driving many miles and past several BJJ gyms/clubs to come to this school. There is a reason for that...Easily the BEST martial arts school in Carroll County Maryland!
Mike and Jordan are amazing!! The kids are not only learning one of the best martial arts, but also discipline, chivalry, responsibility, and patience among other things. I would not have it any other way for my two kids. Keep up the great work!
We love this place! The instruction and instructors are wonderful! Highly recommend it for anyone looking for the best martial arts training in Howard County Maryland.
Coming to this martial arts school has been a life changing experience for my sons and husband. We could never say all of the positives in a review because they are far too numerous; however, being a part of this school is one of the best things we have done for our children. Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland is the best martial arts school in Carroll County.
The new location in Carroll County is by far the best martial arts school I have ever been to! I have trained in many different martial arts, and I can say without question that the instructors at Gracie Jiu Jitsu Maryland really know their stuff. The curriculum is the most organized and easy to follow system I have studied. Again, I can't say enough great things about Gracie Maryland!
We have tried getting our sons involved in several other different martial arts programs for kids in Carroll County, but they were getting bored in the classes, and we felt as though they were not being challenged enough. Mike and Jordan provide the best martial arts training for kids in the area, hands down. The classes are organized and structured, and there are high expectations as far as discipline and respect. Not only that, but the kids have so much fun and beg us to come every single day! We feel as though we have found the best Jiu Jitsu school in Carroll County for our boys.
