Carlson Gracie Jiu Jitsu Team - Lake Elsinore

Shimeru is a proud affiliate of Carlson Gracie Jiu Jitsu Team, a worldwide organization with members in all corners of the globe. Carlson Sr. was a lifelong fighter happy to take on all comers and display the superiority of his grappling. He is credited with breaking jiu jitsu out of its one-on-one training format, bringing the sport to the masses and accelerating its adoption as a dominant martial art. Shimeru owner and head instructor Patrick Dooley received his black belt from Carlson Gracie Jr., under the teaching of Professor Orlando Alonso. We're honored to play a small role in forwarding the legacy of the Carlson Gracie Jiu Jitsu Team. 


A Judo Family

Judo has been in the Dooley family for more than 60 years, beginning with the family patriarch, Jerry Dooley. He shared his love of the sport with his four children, who in turn shared it with theirs. Shimeru coach Patrick Dooley is a third-generation judoka who began practicing at age nine when his father, Brian, introduced him. Now Patrick's son William has earned his yellow belt, solidifying the fourth generation of Dooley judokas.
