I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Gracie Huimata Summerlin! This place is incredibly family-friendly, and the team of instructors, including Professor Andre, Professor Josh, Coach Ray, and Coach Mike, are simply amazing with the kids. My child has learned so much and felt so supported here. We couldn't be happier with the warm and welcoming environment and the fantastic staff. Definitely a 5-star experience!

Mike H recommends Gracie Jiu Jitsu Summerlin

After devoting hours of research and even more hours worth of trial classes, we fortunately found Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Summerlin (on Fort Apache). My 9-year-old started taking classes 6 months ago and has loved every single hour of training. Unlike sports and academic commitments we’ve made in the past, our son has never needed a reminder or encouragement to prepare for and attend class. He’s dressed, ready and excited for each and every class. Professor Andre creates a culture of discipline and respect for the kids with fun and games (at the tail end of class) as a reward. He and his team of awesome fellow coaches (most of whom have kids in the class) are highly effective and supportive with the kids and tailor their tone and approach based on the age, skill and personality of the kids (not an easy task).
