After taking up and training jiu jitsu for 6 months at college, I moved back to the Lake Norman area and decided to try Gracie Lake Norman. I was worried it wouldn’t quite match up to my previous gym, but after a week of classes, I realized just how wrong I was. Gracie LKN honestly feels more like a group of close friends than it does a gym. All the instructors and students go above and beyond to help you learn, and they genuinely want to see you get better. I seriously can’t say enough good things about Gracie LKN. Whether you’re new to jiu jitsu, or you have been training for years, give Gracie LKN a shot. It’ll be the best decision you’ve made in a while.
