    My son trains at Gracie Barra Round Rock with Professor Alfred and he loves Jiu-Jitsu. I am thankful that Professor Al takes the time to teach each student and pays close attention to each students needs and is also meticulous with details.

    As a parent of a young child, you worry about your child’s safety, especially with other kids. However, I know that my son will be able to protect himself, thanks to Jiu- Jitsu.

    My husband, nephew and son all train at GB Round Rock. I love the one-on-one instruction that each on of them get and the attention to detail in Professor Tompkin’s instruction. My son’s confidence soars with each class.
    I love how family centered the school is. My son gets the instruction he needs while still having fun and my husband and nephew learn the details that will give them an edge in competition. I was worried that when we moved from Colorado that we wouldn’t have a BJJ academy to call home, but we’ve found it at Gracie Barra Round Rock!
