    My family and I were members at the Body Architecture studio since it’s transition from Shamrock to Gracie. If we did not have to move from the area, we would all still be members. When we do come back to visit family, the owner and the instructors have always welcomed us back like we were still regular members. They not only care, but they provide a clean friendly environment and excellent training. I had an opportunity to train with the new BJJ instructor on our visit and it was awesome! His name is Samir and I would highly recommend training at the facility.
