Welcome to Katharo Training Center!! I began my Martial Arts journey as a striker with the intention of learning self-defense. It wasn’t until I watched my son train Jiu-Jitsu, after being bullied a number of times, that I really got that Jiu-Jitsu is for the smaller person in a fight. I realized this as I watched my son grow and develop into a different kid in a very short amount of time. He discovered self-confidence and self-expression in Jiu-Jitsu. Once timid and unsure, he is now outgoing, talkative, and simply unafraid.
When I’m not in class, I help coach the Youth class during the week. Aside from being a parent of a kid who studies self-defense, coaching young students who are on a wide age gamut is a very rewarding experience as our Youth program is filled with students who take an undaunted approach to learning Jiu-Jitsu; it’s very inspiring. I highly encourage parents, individuals, and kids to come try a class. I promise you’ll never want to leave!
