As parents of a very hyper 8-year-old boy, we always tried to keep my son Alexander busy and active in different sports.

We tried soccer for a few years, and he seemed to enjoy it, but we wanted to try something different. We then tried karate, but Alex wasn’t into it much. I thought about boxing classes and also jiu-jitsu as another option, and after searching for the right place and failed attempts we came across Barrick Brazilian jiu-jitsu in Goshen.

After meeting Bryan and getting a couple of free try out classes, we knew we found the right place. Alex has been attending class for over a year now, and his level of confidence and grappling skills have improved a lot since we started this journey.

As a parent, I recommend Barrick Brazilian jiu-jitsu to anyone who is looking for a fun and great environment for their kids to learn jiu-jitsu skills with the best team in Michiana.
