My wife and I were looking for a friendly, family oriented MMA classes for our son (10) and daughter (12). They love martial arts and have been doing it for years, in an after school program (TKD). Well, after looking around, we joined Gracie PAC MMA. Let me tell you, this place is perfect. Their staff and coaches are incredible; friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and experience on everything MMA. Professor Cris Rodriguez is great with kids, amazing teacher. We are extremely happy with Gracie MMA, their staff is great, they are very organize and their curriculum (bjj, muay thai, kick boxing, etc....) has everything we were looking for. Great place for the entire family.

Come train with the BEST! This is NOT your normal after school karate class. We were amazed at the amount of technique even the youngest students pick up after just a few classes. Coach Cris is awesome with the kids. She expects more then just good fighting from them. She stays involved with how they are doing in school and at home, giving her students the incentive to be the best at everything they do.

To Be Early is To Be On Time

I will never forget the bright yellow sign that was posted in the lobby of my Tae Kwon Do School. It said “To be Early is to be On Time, to be On Time is to be Late.” I literally read that sign thousands of time over the years – and let me tell you – it stuck!

The Importance of Punctuality

Punctuality is an incredibly important characteristic to pass down to our children. It is actually the first Law for our STORM Team (more on their awesomeness in a later blog.)

Jiu Jitsu is a part of a few select martial arts that require a teammate to improve. So BEING on time to train and learn is essential to growth. Showing up ready to use all the time available is a huge part in accomplishing our goals on the mat. Also being punctual shows everyone around you that you CARE about the task/obligation and that its important to you.

2 Ninja Tips

Here are 2 Ninja Tips to ensure that your child gets to class on time:

#1 – Give yourself a “TIME CUSHION” or more time then you need so in case something happens that you did not expect you have the extra time already carved out.

#2 – Have your child keep their Gym Bag, Uniform, and Mouthpiece, in the SAME PLACE each day. I would create a special place in their room or in your house where this goes every single day. This will make leaving early a much simpler task.

Start teaching your child now that to be early is to be on time on. This is a life skill that will help them become successful both on and off the mat.
