“We started taking jiu jitsu classes. I can honestly say it’s been a very long time since I found something that actually cleared my head. It’s amazing. I find myself finally able to put down whatever is on my mind and actually focus on what I am trying to learn. It’s a very challenging workout and I can tell that it’s a good fit for both of us. We come home and both of us are upbeat and pumped about what we are accomplishing. And I love that we go to the gym together.” – April Fyke – Started her Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Journey in April 2016

“Training at Frequency Martial Arts has been a great experience! The quality of instruction and atmosphere is geared toward learning. I can say if you are interested in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu-Frequency Martial Arts is the top place to learn in Central Illinois! ”    John Graybeal- Robson Moura Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt 

“Everyone is a part of the team, from the highest ranking student to the newest student on the mat.

The atmosphere is structured but relaxed.  You will actually learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques that you will be able to actually apply to your own BJJ game and use for self defense.

If you have been thinking about learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or if you’re simply looking to change up your exercise routine, Frequency Martial Arts is the place to go.  Since training, I have lost and kept off 50 pounds – without drastic changes to my diet.”    Ed LeMonnier- Robson Moura Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt

“Hey Ed just wanna say appreciate how you really tailored class to beginners and really broke down the self-defense aspects of Bjj!
I know a lot of martial arts schools, whether it’s karate, TKD, Bjj, or whatever that act can be condescending to new students and just beat them up to show them how tough their school is.

That was cool you spending extra time w new student Sarah

That’s a sign of good martial arts instructor.” – Niel Magsombol – Black Belt at Mackinaw Valley Karate 

“I had never attempted jiu jitsu until attending Frequency Martial Arts, but I’ve never felt like an outsider at the school.” Patrick Cox – Robson Moura Brazilian Jiu Jitsu  Green Belt

“Why do I train at Frequency Martial Arts in Bloomington? Simply put – it’s a great place to work with quality people who want to help each other train, improve their skills and share their knowledge. The head instructor Mike Lavazza and his assistant instructors are always patient and thorough going over Jiu Jitsu details and making sure the students understand the move before progressing to the next technique. The other training partners are good to work with as well, providing a cooperative learning environment.

“Besides the BJJ instruction, which is driven and inspired by Robson Moura and his style of movement, being able to train regularly is keeping me fit and improving my skill level. Ego’s aren’t on display, everyone there is welcoming and eager to train and assist others in their learning. If you are looking for an opportunity to learn a new martial art (or improve your existing game), enjoy a team environment and have fun – check out Frequency Martial Arts!”Doug Kimball – Robson Moura Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt
