Martial arts is not just self defense. It’s a tool we use to help kids become leaders. Hundreds of parents can’t believe the incredible transformation.
We don’t have many rules here, but they’re very rigorously enforced. As a result, kids learn and develop strong, healthy boundaries. And boundaries are so essential to helping kids thrive.
Discipline and respect flourish within a few short weeks. This is why Parents LOVE our Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program here in North Port.
Kids who train martial arts have a higher success rate in school. Why? Discipline, focus, goal setting, and drive. Martial arts instills these incredible traits in your child, every time they come.
That’s what makes our Drysdale Fight For Us Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes so Powerful.
“Team Zenith!!! My kids and myself train here, I’ll take Jiu Jitsu training any day over cardio or gym(Personal Prefernce👍🏽). So on top of staying in shape, I’m always learning new things every single time I’m on the mat. Great people all around to train with. Having a great group and coach makes all the difference. I recommend coming and trying a class. Jiu Jitsu was my first encounter in any type of martial arts, and it’s been a great journey over the past five years. Looking forward to much more!”

“Drysdale Fight for us Jiu Jitsu/ Team Zenith is a family oriented gym, with phenomenal bjj instruction for both children and adults. It felt like family the first time I stepped foot into gym. Greg Kalteich (A Robert Drysdale black belt) is very welcoming, technical, knowledgeable, and willing to help individually. There are no egos which is a huge plus and unlike a lot of gyms, The mats are always clean! If your just In town visiting or live here full time, I highly recommend coming in and giving it a try! You won’t be disappointed.”

This gym is great! My kids and I all train here. We’ve been a part of the gym for about two years.
Coach Greg is great with the kids and he fosters an atmosphere of teamwork and respect. The training is tough but the upper belts are always looking to pass on their knowledge to make the newer belts better.
The facility is very clean and well kept.

My son (9) started at this location and absolutely loves it. He expressed interest in it at the beginning of the summer and so we gave it a try. I cannot believe how much he loves it. He never wants to miss a class. He enjoys the challenges presented to him and wants to advance. He adores his coach! The teaching is lighthearted and fun, but the expectations and standards are high. These kids learn so much from instructors that care. I love taking my son to this place.

We joined the Fight For Us team about 1 year ago when my son’s (7yo) other BJJ gym didn’t reopen due to COVID. This was the BEST move we have made. Greg and Erin were so welcoming and supportive during our transition over and they’ve continued to be amazing to us since. We are super proud to be apart of this family that they’ve built!
I was very intimated to start training for jiu jitsu. Not only did I feel insecure being 38 years old and never doing a martial art before, but also being a woman in a predominantly male sport. Coach Greg, Adam, Ace, Ian, Janette…etc. the list goes on, were encouraging and supportive from the beginning. They want everyone to learn, train hard and not get injured. No shame in tapping! My son also attends the gym as well. He loves it and I see his self confidence growing. Erin makes everyone feel welcomed and is great to talk to about pretty much anything! So happy to have a second home at the gym!
My son has been coming here to train for almost 3 years and the coaches and staff has been doing an amazing job teaching my son! He loves coming to train and learn!!! His strength, discipline, has been amazing and makes me proud!!!
