This was my fourth Jiu Jitsu camp with Grappling Getaways and it was my favorite one so far!! Always top notch Jiu Jitsu instruction and training, as well as delicious food and super fun activities!! I highly recommend them and can't wait for the next camp!!! The knowledge, dedication, energy and passion of the instructors is truly special and I have greatly benefited from my experiences with the Grappling Getaways team.

The Monster Smash Murder Mystery Grappling Camp was a fun weekend! It was a nice sized group where I didn’t feel lost. Everyone got a chance to talk to one another and spend time with each other at some point throughout the weekend. I loved that the coaches made it a point to connect with each and every one of us. There was scheduled time for Jiu Jitsu and other fun group activities. This camp is for all levels. I had a fantastic time! I’m looking forward to my next camp with Grappling Getaways!

I had the best time with the most amazing bad ass jiu jitsu ladies at my first women’s camp which was Halloween themed. April and Katie were amazing hosts and did everything to make me feel comfortable considering I did not know anyone. I walked away from the trip with some amazing Bjj knowledge taught by some top notch ladies in the Bjj community. I had so many laughs and made so many friends! Its amazing to continue these friendships outside of the camp and I cannot wait for the next one! Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience.

So impressed by the organization, creativity, and execution of this camp. The instructors were very knowledgeable and also created a friendly welcoming atmosphere. As a result, this attracted also a great group of participants. Would recommend!

The Murder Mystery Camp with Grappling Getaways was the first BJJ camp I have ever been to, and it was a fantastic experience. April Parks and Katie Hooven are two inspirational women. They put their heart into this camp, and it shows the moment you sign up. All the instructors at the camp were incredible. They encouraged us to ask many questions and went around to each group, watching and helping us with the technique until we had it. The camp was so much fun! I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time! The ladies I met at the camp were all so welcoming, and we made lifelong friendships. I am glad I was able to experience this and have memories with these incredible women. I will be signing up for another camp.

April, and the other instructors with Grappling Getaways are THE BEST. Top notch human beings who are amazing at jiu jitsu and amazing at teaching. I’ve been to 3 Grappling Getaways events, and each has been so much fun, so inviting, encouraging, and appropriately challenging for what was advertised. I’ve met so many incredible female leaders and role models through Grappling Getaways. HIGHLY recommended :)
