“I cannot say enough great things about this place! Redline Jiu Jitsu is amazing!! The facility is the largest in the Midwest and it is a certified Gracie Center which is the world’s best method of self defense with a unbeatable record. The gym is very clean, beautiful and organized with a great play area where the kids can play while the parents can take their lessons. Ty and Jennifer are the owners and they are so great with kids. My children now say “Yes Sir” and clean their rooms and even help with great initiative even when they are not asked. And beyond that, my children are “BULLYPROOF” which is part of the world’s leading Gracie program initiative. After my children started taking lessons, I started taking the self defense classes called Women Empowered. It has changed my life. It has provided great awareness and life lessons that help me cope with everyday decisions, not just for prevention of assault but for everyday empowerment in my professional and personal life. ”

“Redline jiu jitsu was recommended to us by a current Redline student and friend 3 1/2 years ago when our daughter showed interest in grappling during a self defense program she was enrolled in. We have never looked back. Ty abilities to communicate proper technique with patience to children and adults alike made our decision to come to Redline very easy. His uncanny ability to teach influenced our entire family of 4 to join and learn what he had to offer. Ty has created a gym at Redline with a family friendly atmosphere that we appreciate very much along with Jiu-Jitsu techniques handed down directly from the jiu jitsu 1st family, the Gracies. We love Redline and consider it our second home.”

“The reason I chose Redline Gracie Jiu Jitsu is because I felt like it was a family environment. During my ten free days, everyone was very friendly, and eager to help if I had questions about anything. Another thing that made me join Redline is watching how Ty and Jenn interact with everyone that attends Redline. They do a great job of being present before, and after class. They do not go and sit in their office until the next class; Ty and Jenn are out conversing with everyone. Which I feel is very important in getting to know the students and building a good relationship.”
“My experience at Redline Gracie Jiu Jitsu so far as gone beyond my expectations. I have gained exceptional knowledge of Jiu Jitsu during my time at Redline. Ty and Jenn do a excellent job of breaking down each move and making easy to understand, and anytime I may not understand a certain movement they are there to help me by analyzing what I may be doing wrong. Deciding to become a member of Redline is the best decision I have made in a long time, and I could not see myself training any where else.”
