Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone


Pete Castillo:

From the beginning I’ve said that Jiu-Jitsu has changed my life. Doing Jiu-Jitsu with Gracie Barra – McAllen has changed so much more than my physical appearance (lost 40 lbs). I’ve made life-long friends, I’ve found a way to exercise without getting board of the same routines and I learn something new every day. Although my negative mindset has not completely gone away, I’ve noticed that more often I see “things” as challenges and not obstacles.

Thank you to Prof. Ty and all my Coaches for teaching me this beautiful art form. And thanks to all my teammates who are taking this journey with me.

Sooooo….. 9 months ago i started training Jiu Jitsu @ Gracie Barra McAllen……. little did I know this would be the greatest decision of my life!! I’ve lost a total of 42 lbs since then…… yes, the workout routine has been phenomenal!!! but I want everyone to understand is how big of a role everyone at GB Mcallen has played in my life….the people there, the teammate that positively influence me, the kids we coach, my professor and coaches, these are the people that make me want to better myself by pushing me everyday, to be better than I was the day before. Thank you everyone so much, you have changed my life more than you will ever know……
