The gym’s family friendly atmosphere translated over to the 1500 square foot mat where a dozen children rolled around with their parents.

The gym holds classes seven days a week. HEROES offers instruction for children ages six to twelve, thirteen to eightteen and competition classes for students hoping to compete in BJJ tournaments.
