See What Our Gilbert Jiu-Jitsu Parents are Saying
We have been with Sandoval karate for the last 18 months and returned after about 4 years leave. My son tried karate for about 2 years then tried other interests, but he came back to Sandoval after trying a different studio, Sandoval runs a great studio, his Staff is courteous and has an interest in all the students. They are energetic and driven to get the students to excel. They focus on the basics then drive them to advanced skills. We are so happy to be in the Sandoval family
Sandoval Freestyle Karate is just as the 5 stars states… AS GOOD AS IT GETS! I have 2 children attending the studio, ages 9 and 6, and we have been attending 2x a week for the last 9 months. My children have had to endure a tremendous amount of stressors in their childhoods and I really wanted them to have an outlet, but I never could have imagined all the amazing things this studio has done for my precious boys. Not only are their plenty of instructors…
Wow! I have to say 2011/12 has been very good years for the Sandoval’s. They definitely deserve an upgrade from 4 stars to 5 stars. I’ve watched them grow from the last time I wrote my review, from moving their main school to a new location in Gilbert to opening a brand new 2nd location in Chandler. They have also become very involved in the Arizona tournament circuit, even running their own tournament, allowing students to grow by matching their skills against other schools.

Why Should I Take Jiu-Jitsu Over Another Martial Art?
Instead of playing it ‘safe,’ you can learn how to defend yourself AND step outside the comfort zone that is holding you back. When you have high quality instructors like you will have at Sandoval Freestyle Karate in Gilbert, you can try something new without putting yourself at risk. There are no half measures in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, you have to be 100% committed to your next move or your opponent will punish you.
How Will Jiu-Jitsu Help Me in the Real World?
An estimated 95% of street fights finish on the floor, which means your ground fighting skills need to be in honed. Obviously, taking your opponent down is only a good idea in a one-on-one situation. Here are a few basic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu positions: the mount, guard, scarf hold, and north south.
