Carlson Gracie Temecula
Carlson Gracie Jr. established his presence in the Temecula valley in 2008 by opening a school for students to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Since its establishment he has used the facility as his West Coast headquarters for his team. Carlson Gracie Temecula is ran by Thomas Cronin, instructor and owner of the 2,000 square foot facility.It has top of the line Swain Dollamur mats, a locker room, and a lounge where parents and children may relax . The facility not only offers Jiu Jitsu, Judo , Self Defense and Muay Thai kickboxing it also plays host to many seminars, training camps and tournaments.
I started training at CGT in March of 2014. As a woman it can often be very intimidating to start training in a male dominated sport. Here I felt welcomed from the moment I walked in and continue to feel the family like environment here. I truly enjoy training at this school, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested, even if it’s just for a visit.
