Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts
Wrick Tomas, Eric Callueng, and their team of coaches were brought up in one of the top MMA and Jiu Jitsu schools in the nation. Under the watchful eye of legendary Coach Rob Kahn at Gracie Tampa they have grown into world class instructors. Their goal is to create a family oriented gym where people of all ages can come train, have fun, and start their Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey. In just under two years they have built a highly successful competition team with a stable of talented grapplers of all ages.
Here’s What People Are Saying About Gracie Wesley Chapel
“Coach Wrick Tomas is a fantastic instructor who is personally invested in the development of all of his students. He is a fantastic role model for children and works tirelessly to inspire them to reach their goals and potential.....Prior to starting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with coach Wrick, he would come home from class more days than not on "yellow" and occasionally on "red" for not completing his assignments. Within 2 months of starting BJJ my son was coming home on "green", excited about his accomplishments, and gaining self-confidence with each passing week.....He taught my son self-discipline and constantly challenges him to believe in himself, never to quit, and push himself to limits he did not think possible.”Read More
At Gracie Wesley Chapel, our goal is to create an environment where students not only receive the highest level of instruction in current Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts strategy and technique, but that they also grow as individuals. Students learn how to communicate with each other and share ideas that ultimately lead to personal growth.
Get in Great Shape
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has a very different kind of cardio than what you are used to from traditional exercise. You might be able to run 5 miles with no problems, but when grappling, you’ll learn in your first minutes that the cardio is different and demanding. As a result, people usually see excellent progress in their first six months of training!
Make New Friends
Some of the best friends you will ever have will likely come directly from relationships that you build with your training partners. In Jiu Jitsu, you form extremely strong bonds with people. People who will be there for you no matter what!
