Project Description

Northwest Indiana Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Taekwondo


Through hard work, dedication, and studying their techniques our Young Champions have been able to achieve recognition on an International level at the largest tournaments in the World.

Emma is 10 years old and has been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 2 years at Corral’s Martial Arts. Over the past 2 years, she has competed in many BJJ Tournaments all over the Midwest and abroad. She is part of the CMA World Traveling Team, competing at the highest level available for kids, at tournaments such as the IBJJF Nationals and IBJJF Kids Pan Ams.  Currently, she holds 14 gold, 2 silver, and 2 bronze medals.

The above accomplishments are no easy task and Emma has come along way since first beginning BJJ. Before training with Corral’s Martial Arts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Emma lacked confidence, was very shy, and never involved herself competitively in sports. Through her martial arts journey, Emma has developed a lot more confidence in herself, improved her ability to focus, and has instilled a sense of discipline towards the goals she wishes to accomplish. Outside of the gym, her teachers say she has become a leader in the classroom and last year she even built up enough confidence to take on a solo role in the school’s Christmas play.
