Training 7 Days a Week

At Carlson Gracie Temecula we are constantly training. Everyone has a different schedule so we have morning classes, evening classes, private instruction and LOTS open mat.  Saturdays and Sundays are not exempt. Please see our schedule for details.

Family Atmosphere

Students range from 3 years old to active practitioners in their 60’s. The majority of our students experience a lot of personal self discovery through improved fitness and stress relief. This extends to family and friends, who often come and join to experience the same benefits!

Changing Lives with Martial Arts

The single most inspiring aspect we encounter is witnessing the transformation our students go through as they learn to overcome personal obstacles and combat fear, depression, anxiety and become empowered with a humble sense of confidence while getting in shape in the process.

There is something beautiful, yet awful, about take-downs. When applied correctly, the execution can be the most beautiful thing you see as a spectator, awful feeling you experience as the […]

American Nationals 2014 – Carlson Gracie Team Wrap-up

Weekend Recap: Another IBJJF American Nationals championship comes to a close. I am so glad the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation decided not to move this event elsewhere in the country as rumored last year. This has long been one of my favorite events of the year and we always get to see breakthroughs for our students here. Also this is by far the most professionally run event that I have ever experienced to date everything was on time and […]

Sensei Jesse Jones

It’s difficult to make this announcement. Last night (Sunday) we lost a family member from the school. Sensei Jesse Jones has been with us from the very beginning.

A hard but compassionate person that became a very close friend. Master Jones was the […]
