The Back to the 80s Grappling Getaways was an amazing weekend filled with awesome training sessions, fun excursions in the Lake George area, an incredible lakeside house, and an amazing, welcoming, group of women! From the location, to the food, and training in the pavilion to all the thoughtful 80s themed goodies, gifts and treats, April and Katie went above and beyond. I was hesitant about joining this weekend adventure, especially as a fairly new white belt. I can’t express what an amazing experience this was for me and I can’t wait to be able to join another Grappling Getaways! You ladies rock!!

What a weekend!!! The accomodations were fabulous! Coffee on the dock with the light fog rolling in was just one of the many highlights of this trip. Everyone was friendly, outgoing, and our host Katie and April made sure everyone felt welcomed and included! The 80s theme was fantastic and everything was decorated so well. We even got swag bags :) The training was also amazing. I learned new moves and new tweaks to moves that I had been doing for years. There is so much more I can say about this wonderful weekend! I feel energized about my jui jitsu again and have a whole new group of friends. So happy I got outside of box and joined this EPIC weekend!

Thank you for providing a safe space to be my goofy self, provide me with the coolest friends and give me such great mentors to look up to. Katie & April You mean the world to me.

Where do I even begin again? Well this is my 5th camp and I am absolutely obsessed hence why I keep coming back. To the beautiful accommodation on the lake, training sessions at the pavillion, 80s themed party, excursions, food options, and all of the amazing campers made the trip for me. I'm blessed to have found such strong and fun women who are now my friends that share the same passion as me when it comes to jiu-jitsu. I'm still on cloud 9 from this weekend and looking forward to the next camp. ❤️

This was my 3rd camp in Lake Placid and I had such a great experience! Training with other women at these camps is like training in a room full of laughter. I can’t wait for the next one! Thank you Grappling Getaways for the opportunity to be part of this experience.

This was my first getaway and it won’t be my last. This trip, these people and this experience was something my soul needed. I made lifelong friends, learned some killer techniques while vacationing in paradise. I got solid life advice for things I’m struggling w in my own business. Seeing such strong, powerful women be so down to earth and welcoming and loving just makes feel so grateful I made the trip….. next trip will be Mexico. See you soon Coaches!!!!

Highly recommend!! I've attended 3 amazing Grappling Getaway camps so far (and plan on attending many more) and each time is unique and awesome! April and Katie are exceptional women who truly love what they do! I appreciate so much the time and effort they take to connect with female struggles both on and off the mats, makes these camps unmatchable. Their attention to every detail, coupled with their incredible ability to just go with the flow, makes being in their presence an authentic jiu jitsu experience. They create such a welcoming, fun, and empowering experience, where friendships are seeded and your jiu jitsu grows! If you're wanting to feel empowered by strong women with great attitudes and open minds, you should DEFINITELY get to a Grappling Getaway ASAP!

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 :)
