This gym is special! Wanna know why? It's because of the people. I'm newish to San Diego and a few months ago I was looking to get into something where I could find community and do it while moving my body. I googled BJJ randomly one day and found this gym through yelp. I signed up for my free intro class and had a blast! That day, I signed up for a membership which, not gonna lie, I was kind of wary about (liking spending a lot of money in something I wouldn't keep up with) but all doubts and concerns went out the window with every positive interaction I had at the gym. My brain loves feeling challenged and every time I go to roll at north park bjj, I feel like I'm learning something new and progressing in my bjj. In addition to the quality of instruction, I really appreciate how welcoming the professors and other students make you feel. As a spazzy white belt, I've accidentally poked people in the eye or kneed them in a sensitive place a few times now and yet teachers and students have been patient with me and have helped me with my learning journey.
And special shoutout to Paulete who organizes womxn only seminars with guest black belts and other also leads her own. She really has done a lot to make the gym a welcoming and supportive place for womxn. She also organized a group text for us so that we can coordinate who is going to what practice so that we have other lady friends to roll with. In short, she's super hot fyah and I love her.
So come!! Join the north park bjj fam! I hope to see you on the mat.
