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.

Nathan is 12 years old and has been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 3 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 11 gold, 10 silver, and 1 bronze medals.
  • 2017 IBJJF Nationals Silver Medalist
  • 2018 IBJJF Kids Pan Ams Silver Medalist
  • 2018 IBJJF Chicago Silver Medalist
The above accomplishments are no easy task and Nathan has come a long way since first beginning BJJ. Before training with Corral’s Martial Arts he was always quiet, introverted, and kept to himself. Through his martial arts journey, Nathan has become socially confident, focused under pressure, well-respected by his peers, and physically fit. Continually he wants to better himself each and every day.
