“Jiu Jitsu keeps me very fit, and it keeps me motivated to do better. It also gave me my self confidence back because I was struggling with very severe depression from horrible life circumstances. It gave me a reason to keep pushing forward and now am almost 100% better than what I used to be.”
“I originally found Journey Jiu Jitsu Madison offer online and got the 3-class trial offer to just try casually. I couldn’t predict that I would fall in love with the gym, the people, and the amazing workouts! It is an inclusive, welcoming environment, and that’s important to me. I feel right at home. I highly recommend Journey!!!”
“Amazing instructors, great people! I’m 41 and I feel like I’m in better shape than I was in my 20s! Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Madison classes have helped me immensely in all areas of my life. Biggest thing is that I feel that I’m able to defend my wife, daughters, and myself if I’m ever in a confrontation. I plan to continue my training for a very long time.”
