WE HAVE OVER 20 YEARS OF MARTIAL ARTS EXPERIENCE.
Here at Corral’s Martial Arts our students consist of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to advanced. We offer classes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Taekwondo, Wrestling, and Female Kickboxing & Self Defense.
Corral’s Martial Arts’ first academy opened in 1997 at Azatos School of Karate located at the intersection of Rt. 41 and Rt. 30. Over the years we searched for a place to call our own and finally settled into 2 great locations in Schererville and Portage, Indiana. At our academy you will find students seeking martial arts training for many different reasons, therefore we focus on every person as an individual to help them accomplish his or her personal goals. Many of our students consist of kids, families, sport jiu-jitsu competitors, college students, local law enforcement, teachers, military personnel, and others.
At Corral’s Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is what we specialize in. Our academy is known for its technical ability on the mat and we have some of the highest ranking instructors in the region. All of our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts have been training for 10+ years and our academy is certified by the IBJJF International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation.
