It’s been an amazing 8 years at Master Pattillos karate school, I’ve been taking karate with him since I was 8 and I’ve loved coming to class every day since. Every class is filled with not only karate practice but fun and real life styled situations to stay safe in and outside of karate. Master Pattillo always makes class enjoyable and a blast to be a part of. I’ve learned a lot of valuable skills from taking karate I’ve learned self motivation, self control, I’ve worked on many different forms, kicks, punches, and self defense. This is an amazing karate school and I would recommend it to anyone starting out with karate or anyone who wants to have fun, get exercise and learn self defense. I don’t plan to switch schools ever and hopefully I’ll earn many more belts with Master Pattillo.

My grand-daughter has been attending Master Pattillo's classes for 7 weeks now. I love observing as it is a real pleasure to watch someone so skilled in working with children. My grand-daughter wants to give her own review so I will let her continue from here. "I love karate so much and I love to make new friends at karate. Master Pattillo is so nice and really never gets mad at me. I just love attending at this karate place with my new friends. So I am really enjoying karate a lot. Thank you for teaching me all these things in karate. I think a made a really good decision going to Master Pattillo's Karate."

What a great experience this has been. My granddaughter Josslyn has learned so much in this class. I love the way the children listen and follow directions from Master Pattello and his staff. We would highly recommend you signing your child or grandchild up for his Martial Arts classes.

What a great place for kids to learn some amazing skills, make new friends, and become more disciplined. Master Patillo and Ms.Jackson have amazing patience with all of the children and make sure the kids are learning and having fun at the same time. I am super amazed how they can remember each child's name without hesitation or error and remember each child's strengths and weaknesses. My kids have been excited about the new techniques they've learned and all of the fun "extras" that Master Patillo includes in his program. Thanks for all that you do!

How BJJ Helps Improve Confidence

How BJJ Helps Improve Confidence

Confidence. It’s something that a lot of people struggle with.

Truth be told, it’s something that I have a challenge with, too. And, really, it’s not one of those things that you just “set it and forget it”. It’s a skill that needs to be developed, honed, and maintained.

Though I’d spent many years in Karate before starting Jiu-Jitsu, from a self-defense perspective, I knew that if I ever ended up on the ground, I would be out of my element. In a way, this gap in my skill set made me question my abilities as a martial artist. I wasn’t looking to be the best at everything, just to be capable in any situation.

Some people join Jiu-Jitsu to lose weight, get in shape, meet friends, or protect themselves. Whatever the reason, there is a common result that comes from training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (or “BJJ”): Confidence.

How does it happen?

No matter what your background – whether you have previous martial arts experience or not – when you start Jiu-Jitsu, you’re likely going to feel like a fish out of water.

It’s normal!

And it’s part of the process of Jiu-Jitsu.

But after some time, just like any skill, you’ll start to get it. And then you’ll practice it. And then you’ll start to get good at it because it’s working!

And then suddenly, you won’t feel like a fish out of water. You’ll be a shark in the ocean.

Now, let’s say your reason for starting Jiu-Jitsu was to get in shape. That, of course, comes with doing Jiu-Jitsu. But how you feel about yourself will skyrocket because you look and feel better PLUS you’re learning a new skill that you’re getting better at PLUS you feel like a beast.

What if your goal was to meet friends? In the right school, one in which helping each other out is encouraged, camaraderie naturally develops. On top of that, you feel great and you feel better capable of protecting yourself. Suddenly, you’re making friends wherever you go.

Win-Win-Win

Increased confidence can work wonders in your life. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an amazing way to develop that confidence.
