A Few Words
I’m Luis Mata, Owner / Head Instructor here at Gracie Apollo Beach.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
Does Your Child Have
They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.
They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.
They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.
The Difficulties of Raising Children Are Near Endless
There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.
Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?
But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.
your child will grow with every class!
Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.
Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.
Luis and Erin and dedicated practitioners to the sport and art of Jiujitsu. They are not only professionals but superb people. They come with the highest recommendation. If I lived in the area, they would be coaching both of my children.

You will never find another team of people teaching with the passion and love like Coach Luis and Erin. They are the most genuine people I have ever met. I would trust them with my life. They have taught me so much!!! Take your kids, teens, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, etc. to this school! You won’t regret it!
Luis is an amazing, passionate instructor. His knowledge and dedication to the sport is unmatched. He's great with kids and has extreme patience when teaching.
Luis is a great instructor and person, I highly recommend you train with him.
Met Luis when i was living in Florida attending school. I was a blue belt he was a brown. I’m never going to forget how he went out of his way to answer questions i had on certain moves or certain positions, just because he “loved jiu jitsu and wanted to spread the art.” He’d stay before or after with me for as much as 20 minutes sometimes. That really stuck with me. Some of these moves he showed me years ago i still use! This is a guy who’s a CLASS ACT and a GREAT PERSON . Cannot recommend him enough!!!
