Happy New Year!

As we enter our 4th year of offering Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes for children and adults in Bloomington-Normal, it’s great to see the the transformations that have taken place within our teammates.

From physical growth spurts within the youth program or the weight loss teammates have accomplished to the confidence and friendships that have been made; everyone has their own reasons for being on the mats.

This Saturday Frequency Martial Arts will be hosting an informal New Year’s Open House from 9-10:30a where you can observe or even take part in the class.

 During this time you can also take advantage of our 2018 Enrollment offer for New Students.

Reserve your spot for this Saturday when you fill out the form below.
