One of our students Tamara, had an incident where she was stalked by a taxi driver for several months after being dropped home one night after a party. As a result Tamara suffered from stress and anxiety. She started training with us and our focus was to build up her confidence and some self defense skills. Training Brazilian Jiu jitsu has changed Tamara’s life and given her confidence back.
To begin with, our tiny champion Blayke was so shy and used to cry before getting on the mats to train. She never liked training with boys. After several weeks of training at Gracie Barra Charlestown Blayke became so confident, loves coming to training and is confident training with boys!
