Every year Carlson Gracie Jr comes to visit Greenwood, Indiana, and does a 2 hour jiu jitsu class with us. Last Saturday, August 20th, was our chance to host him here for 2016. At one point we had 57 people on the mats (and could have fit in 15-20 more!). There were 8 Black Belts in attendance! Like always, he kept things simple, but brought up different nuiances and details on simple positions that only someone with his experience can. Everyone who came out got something out of this.

Carlson's visit also coincided with the re-grand opening of our gym. Stockman Jiu Jitsu opened in June of 2011. Now 5 years later we have expanded into the space next to us adding a 2nd mat more that 2 1/2 times larger than our original mats. We are now able to hold classes with larger numbers of people much more comfortably. We are so excited to see what the next 5 years will hold!

We are also getting spoiled with our new mats since they are such an improvement over what we had been using for so long. We matted the new room with top of the line 1.5" smooth surface Zebra Mats and we placed them on a state of the art foam block sub floor. This new flooring system give you an experience unlike anything else. The mats are fast and firm yet they absorb shocks, giving  a softer feel. They enhance performance and greatly reduce injuries!
