Unlike other martial arts that rely on raw strength or explosive power, Brazilian jiu-jitsu focuses on leveraging an opponent's strength against them. That makes this martial art ideal for self-defense. At Frequency Martial Arts in Bloomington, IL, families can learn the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu while building trust with each other.
Our instructors teach age-appropriate classes so students can learn the ropes safely. We also offer a women's-only program taught by two female instructors.

I completed my trial tonight at Frequency and I have to say I was more than impressed. Before I even stepped foot in the door, Coach Ed set a high standard with communication and expectations. I have zero experience and was a bit apprehensive to check it out. Coach Ed was reassuring. I was paired up with an instructor to start off. Brianna was kind, friendly, encouraging and patient. She smiled the whole time and made sure I was having fun while learning. I'm not exaggerating when I say I'm almost twice her size, which is a true testament to the art of BJJ. Her technique and experience showed through as she moved me with ease. Look forward to getting back in the gym and learning more from the team.
Great place to train with knowledgeable instructors and a welcoming atmosphere.
As the coaches says "we do hard things." My son was not always as confident as I would have liked him to be. He was scared to try new things, especially ones he perceived to be difficult. Since he started training at frequency martial arts, I have watched him take on hard things both in class and outside of class. I couldn't be happier as a parent with the confidence Coach Ed and the rest of the coaches have instilled in my child. He walks into and out of class with a smile on his face, knowing he is succeeding. You have given my son the best gift I could have ever asked for! Thank you frequency martial arts!
Jiu Jitsu, and Frequency, helped kickstart a healthy lifestyle change for me that positively affected all areas of my life. I would recommend anyone interested in Jiu Jitsu, someone looking for a hobby, way to relieve stress, or looking to learn something new, to check out this gym!
It's intimidating as an adult to learn something completely new and put yourself out there to be a beginner at something again. Everyone at Frequency has been in that same spot before, so they understand the feeling, and I've experienced nothing but kindness and respect since I've been on the mats.
A wonderful environment, that is very inviting and filled with great coaches and teammates.
I love how each class is not solely focused on BJJ but also incorporates how to handle bully situations.. At FMA, kids respect each other and encourage one another to try their best and work their hardest. This comes from the great coaching of Ed and Mike. You won't be disappointed if you enroll your child or even yourself!
Thank you, Coaches, for giving him a safe place to push himself to grow. Joining Frequency last year in the middle of the remote-learning/stay-at-home world was the best thing for him. I can tell he cares a lot about you guys. Not an easy good-bye at all.
