The Quintana Family has been with Carlson Gracie MMA Gym since March 2011. Ismael Quintana believes this gym has a good family environment especially for kids because it gives them discipline, strength, and self confidence. Ismael pointed out, especially to parents who are on the fence about their kids joining an MMA gym, that MMA is not just fighting; MMA is just like any other sport that gives someone the opportunity to build strength and conditioning. Moses, Noah, and Marcus Quintana currently participate in boxing, muay thai, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His wife participates in the fitness/conditioning classes. Ismael states that his sons training at the Carlson Gracie Naperville / Aurora gym has helped them to become more responsible and focused both at home and school. They are also in better shape.
