Carlson Gracie Naperville / Aurora / Channahon member Aaron Brooks has been training at the Naperville / Aurora Channahon locations since 2010. He trains in Boxing, MuayThai / Kickboxing, Jiu-Jitsu and Wrestling. He has won 18 gold medals and numerous other medals at BJJ tournaments around the country. For every tournament, Brooks states that his goal is to find a way to his strongest technique, which he says is done by dictating where the match goes and adjusting from there. He believes that every BJJ competitor should take the opportunity to compete at world class events such as PanAm, The Nationals and Worlds because it’s something you’ll never regret and it’s an invaluable experience win, lose, or draw.
