Build Confidence

“My name is Aaliyah and I am 14 years old.  I train because it builds your confidence a lot like whenever I was little I was very very shy and I am a lot more confident now.
It is a very freeing sport!”

Family Fun

My name is Rob Nichols.  I am 41 years old and I have been training here at John Schell Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for the past four or five months.  I like to do the morning and evening classes.  This stuff is great!  It’s always a good exercise.  It’s the competition and the family atmosphere. We also have two kids in the family, 9 years old and 5 years old.  We even have a 3 year old waiting to join.  It is a family event for us.  We all love the competition and John’s coaching.  He is truly investing in us!”

Kids Martial Arts

Kids of all ages love training martial arts.  Fitness and self defense really help to build kids self confidence, self control and self esteem. Martial Arts are one of the few things that you can teach children that will stay with them for their whole entire life.  Kids that train Martial Arts do not suffer as much from bullying and they typically do much better with their grades in school. John Schell has three daughters and a son himself and has seen the benefit of martial arts training in all of their lives.

Push Yourself to Achieve New Goals

Life is meant to be lived and the only way we are going to truly experience life is to continually challenge ourselves to do more, be more, do better and reach higher.  Jiu Jitsu provides the perfect opportunity to have fun and make friends while pushing ourselves each and every day.  We have thousands of victories, defeats, break-throughs and more.  We define our life off the mat by what we learn and earn on the mat.  Everyone that steps foot on the mat is respected and their experience is respected no matter what level they start or end on.  We consider BJJ a true gift wrapped up with goals.

Try Something New and Fun

“My name is Kevin Donascimento.  I have been training for 2 months.  I am 23 years old and I train just for the journey.  Its not about winning and it’s not about me.  Its all about the experience.”

Fun Competitions and Training

For those kids and adults that would love to challenge themselves with safe and fun competitions Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides many opportunities year round!  John Schell is a top competitor winning medals in hundreds of competitions.  Schell Shock BJJ students routinely win in tournaments across the country.  John Schell is a very active jiu jitsu fighter in sport events and even competes actively in MMA.

Keep Kids Active

“My name is Carlos and I have a son who we put here to train with John Schell in BJJ over a year ago.  Basically when we moved here 2 years ago we wanted our son to stay active in sports and martial arts has been very good for him.  He started very slow in the beginning but now he loves it and is very happy and since he is happy we are happy!”
