Project Description

Northwest Indiana Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu


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.

Luke is 10 years old and has been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 2 years at Corral’s Martial Arts. Over the years, he has competed in many local BJJ Tournaments all over the Midwest. He 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, he holds 13 gold, 6 silver, and 3 bronze medals.
  • 2017 IBJJF Chicago Open Gold Medalist Medalist
  • 2017 IBJJF Nationals Gold Medalist
  • 2017 IBJJF Kids Pan Ams Bronze Medalist
  • 2018 IBJJF Kids Pan Ams Gold Medalist
The above accomplishments are no easy task and Luke has come a long way since first beginning BJJ. Before training with Corral’s Martial Arts he was timid and lacked confidence in himself. He has always loved athletics and getting him involved with BJJ is something that he has come to look forward to every day after school. Through his martial arts journey, Luke has become physically fit, competitive, confident, and a hard worker. Continually he wants to better himself each and every day. Outside of the gym, he has become a lot more independent, a classroom leader, and nobody wants to bully him anymore.
