“The goal is not to be better than someone else, but better than you were yesterday.”– Master Jigoro Kano

Both Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Kickboxing provide you with a natural way to learn and improve self-defense skills, all while getting a great workout. We teach a progress-oriented curriculum of basic and advanced techniques based on the tenets of mutual cooperation, mutual benefit and mutual respect.

Our Basic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Kickboxing programs teach new students the fundamental aspects of the martial arts, while providing a fun, safe, yet comprehensive workout. The Adult program is designed for people ages 12 and up. Juniors program ages 6-12.


I have been training with Professor Carroll and Professor Laurel since 2017 and it has been one of the most rewarding journeys of my life. This is a special family who create a safe, challenging, and attentive environment for learning this beautiful art. This program is a beacon of health, wellness, positivity, fitness, and self-defense. The town of Carmel has been given a gift! I wholeheartedly recommend it and I look forward to seeing you on the mat…

“Become the best possible version of yourself!” . . . I was always obsessed with the idea of perfection but since studying with Professor Carroll I became more focused on KAIZEN or constant improvement. We can always work to be a little better everyday on & off the mats. “Life changing!” . . . If you are ready for a healthy & positive experience then leave your doubts behind and your ego at the door. I did and 3,399 days later Jiu-Jitsu and the Martial Arts continue to be a positive part of my life. Studying Martial Arts with the Carroll Family is always a wonderful opportunity. Don’t miss yours! OSS!!!


This family owned and operated school is inviting to all. The instructors are knowledgable in the martial arts, and also have a profound philosophy structured around ethics. Great cardio’ workout, I personally lost 7 pounds in 5 classes.

I started this as a why not give it a try. I was worried this would be a very intense program and be a turn off. WOW was I totally wrong on my first thought, and incredibly impressed. My self being older, found the style of Professor Carroll to be perfect for me to rebuild my self if you will. And the side benefits is I have lost weight, physically improved my flexibility, cardio and strength, and met some great people. I cannot say enough good things about the School. You should at least give them a call. I did and for me, was a start of a whole new journey….

Highly recommend!

At Grail JiuJitsu, Professor Carroll and his team are exemplary!  His methods and instruction are clear, concise, and attainable for everyone.  The students are welcoming and kind-hearted.

As an older student with decades of experience in martial arts, I was hesitant to start BJJ, given the limitations of my aging body and the possibility of aggravating past injuries.  After watching and participating in an intro class, Grail JiuJitsu accommodated and alleviated my concerns.

Nowadays, I attend classes as much as I can, and this training is the highlight of my day.  I am glad that I discovered this dojo – the results are both physically and mentally transformative.

It’s never too late to start!  As they say, “Your future self will thank you!”

After being out or martial arts for some time , I was looking for someplace to learn Jiu-Jitsu. I wish I had done it sooner, the instructors are top notch and the training partners are supportive and helpful. I look forward to class, the instructions and various techniques and maneuvers we may be practicing that night, as well as the physical improvements you’ll see. If you are looking for a positive experience with wonderful people come on down. Build your body, mind and spirit.

What you will find at Grail Jiu Jitsu is an opportunity to develop your whole-self, mind and body. Professor Carroll possess a wealth of knowledge and experience, which he shares with his students in a welcoming and safe environment. He and Professor Laurel are inspiring instructors who love what they do. I began my Jiu Jitsu training with Professor Carroll back in Brooklyn, in 2015. Well into my forties, I was looking for a physical activity to keep healthy that I could do with my teenaged son. What I found was an amazing art, that has become a life-long practice. I cannot recommend Grail Jiu Jitsu highly enough, for anyone at any age.
