Martial arts studios, specifically jiujitsu gyms, continue to open in San Marcos. Four have opened in the area since last September.

A closer look

Each jiujitsu business is locally owned and offers classes for all ages. Gi and No Gi classes are available at each studio to accommodate all experience levels.

"Our intention here is to have a strong community presence," Marie Ellensohn, co-owner of Dino Jiu Jitsu said.

The community can also find classes other than jiujitsu. Kaizen Jiu Jitsu, for example, offers karate and judo classes for children.
