On April 26 Carlson Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Menifee celebrated one year of business with a big anniversary party. A very large turn out of happy Jiu Jitsu students and their friends and families enjoyed an event filled with food, fun, raffle prizes, and belt promotions.

In the past year Carlson Gracie’s Menifee franchise has grown a lot, but with plenty of room to grow more they are looking forward to another productive year ahead.

“I would love to have a huge team, both kids and adults, so that we can constantly work together to become better,” shares owner and instructor, Orlando Alonso.

In the next year they are looking forward to a few things, first and foremost is to continue to help people learn how to defend themselves. Jiu Jitsu combines so many benefits into one activity, most notably exercise and the art of self-defense. In addition their program helps individuals to live a healthier lifestyle. In just the last year alone they have had many students lose anywhere from 30 all the way up to 90 pounds with the guidance of Orlando Alonso.

"Carlson Gracie Menifee has changed my life. I have lost 35 pounds, feel better and I am happier. Anyone looking for a way to better themselves should come check it out,” shares Caleb G.

In addition to changing lives they also plan to continue competing in tournaments. On the weekend of May 3 and 4 Menifee’s Carlson Gracie did great as a team in two different tournaments by bringing home Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals. Every student that competed took home a medal.

"My son Kyle and I train there. Orlando provides a great learning atmosphere and excellent instruction. If you’re looking for a place to train in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, this is it,” says Steve K.

With a long list of goals for their second year in business, Carlson Gracie in Menifee really wants to focus on building an incredible kids team. Right now their kids class of 8 to 14 year olds is running great, and they would like to see it grow even bigger.

“It’s wonderful to see kids with confidence problems, ADHD, or with no experience in sports not only thrive but dominate in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. They grow so much that it is one of the greatest rewards of teaching this martial art,” says Alonso.
