Frequency Martial Arts Jeff Mitchell VisitFrequency Martial Arts is honored to have Professor Jeff Mitchell of Elite Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Newark, Delaware joining us on September 10 and 11 for TWO 2-hour sessions each evening from 6 to 8.

With over 14-years of experience, Professor Mitchell isn’t a newcomer to Bloomington-Normal as he has been to Central Illinois several times with Professor Robson Moura, most recently for the filming of the REQUIREMENTS 2.0 DVDS.

He will be bringing his knowledge to Frequency Martial Arts where his attention to detail will help you improve on the mats while not overwhelming you with information.

Here is an interview that I did with Professor Mitchell last October during the 3rd Annual RMNU Camp in Tampa, Florida where he shares his thoughts on BJJ:  CLICK HERE.

Space is limited so please contact us to book your spots for these seminars and take advantage of the special 2 seminar price.

Early registration (BY AUGUST 10) is $65 per class or $100 to attend both for Frequency Martial Arts Teammates.




Early registration (BY AUGUST 10) is $80 per class or $130 to attend both for all other affiliates.

Frequency Martial Arts June 9 2015 Jeff LynnCongratulations to White Belt Jeff Lynn and Green Belt Chuck Smith on earning their respective first stripes from Professor Mike Lavazza!

While stripes and belt promotions do not come often in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, when they do come, they are well deserved.

Every stripe represents the hard work that you have put in to make yourself better on the mats, but they also represent your time in helping the rest of the team get better.Frequency Martial Arts June 9 2015 Chuck Smith

Congratulations once again and thank you for making us all better as you work towards achieving your goals!

2015-05-07 17.49.11As I sit down to write this blog, I have just wrapped up 3 full months of teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to kids at Frequency Martial Arts and I was blown away by tonight’s class.  When we lined up, I asked them to give themselves a huge round-of-applause for working as hard as they did in the class.

They not only worked hard individually, but they worked hard as a team drilling the techniques while listening and observing their teammates working on various drills.

Every parent that I meet, I always tell them that I wish my parents would have enrolled me into the martial arts when I was younger.  The benefits I would have received would have greatly outweighed any of the typical fears that parents have when it comes to enrolling their child into Martial Arts.

Frequency Martial Arts is working with a local radio station and their “Save on Bloomington” program.

We’re currently offering FOUR 2-Month UNLIMITED Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Training Packages WITH a GI for only $150!  That’s over a 50% savings!

The Radio Program allows the radio station to keep 100% of the profit from the discounted sale, but Frequency Martial Arts will receive 100% of the retail value to use for radio advertising.

I’d love for these to sell out this week so the advertising schedule can promote our open house on May 16 and to sweeten the deal, if you have a friend that has come to train and they buy the offer, we’ll toss in two one-hour private lessons for free!

Frequency Martial Arts is growing and we’re not referring to the class sizes.

While the team is getting bigger, I look at the kids class and see a group of kids who are becoming more confident in talking and drilling techniques with new teammates. It’s awesome to see them from a distance be the first to extend a hand and introduce themselves to their newest teammate. This confidence and attitude will spillover into their lives off of the mats and will allow them to not only make friends but work well with co-workers when they enter the workforce.

As adults, it’s easy to become set in our ways and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will help you break out of your comfort zone. Training a physical sport that requires a lot of physical contact with people that you do not know, will get you out of your comfort zone in a hurry and will help you open your mind to other possibilities.  While you have a head instructor showing you to the concept of the techniques being drilled in the class, they are also helping you make adjustments so the moves can be customized to your skill sets.  Drilling these moves with your teammates of different body types and skill sets forces you to change your game as one sweep won’t work against everyone.
