What we liked about The Gentle Art was that the curriculum focused on character building, problem solving, and self-defense.

This is evident in the variety of classes offered, the warmth of the coaches, and quality of the members they attract. The kids program is top-notch, the coaches are very patient and able to explain the techniques in a way that kids can understand.
Apart from progressing technically in BJJ, through competitions and training, my boys developed very good focus, resilience, discipline and determination. The coaches have been amazing, constantly listening to my concerns and expectations and working with me closely in the best interests of my boys not just in BJJ, but in other aspects of life too.
