My son went to Berkeley Kuk Sool Won on Sacramento and Dwight from age 5 to 12 and really loved it. He was with the same group of kids from White belt to Black Belt, and he made some good friends while learning forms and eventually weapons and sparring.

Located next to Costco and Point Isabel in Richmond / El Cerrito at Ice Chamber Athletic Performance Training Center. 

My 3 children have been learning BJJ from professor Igor Estrella, an amazing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu master and positive mentor to my children for the past 2 years. The owner Steven is awesome, super friendly and works with your needs. The Ice Chamber facility is always clean, huge, parking is easy, and has every workout need available. 

Come learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, one of the most efficient and practical self-defense systems available, this summer at Ice Chamber with Professor Igor Estrella. Igor Estrella received his BJJ black belt from Gracie Humaita under Master Andre "Negao" Lemos in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. He is a multiple time IBJJF champion at the state, national, and international levels. In addition to being a fierce competitor, Igor is a respected coach who is known for improving the lives of young children using BJJ as the foundation. 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport based on the fundamentals of leveraging technique to overcome brute strength. The roots of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be traced back to the Gracie family, who were responsible for its technical development and worldwide popularity. BJJ is practiced by children and adults alike because of its practicality and effectiveness in real combat situations!

Classes on Tues and Thurs at 4pm, 5pm, and 6pm / Sat at 10am, 11am. Call or email us to reserve your FREE first class. 

We love Igor and BJJ at Ice Chamber!
