Cotulla Chamber of Commerce has chosen Boa Luta Academy as the Business of the Month for February 2019.

Boa Luta Academy started offering Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and self-defense classes in Cotulla at the Learning Center, formerly the old Newman Cafeteria, January 18th, 2018. In a little over a year they've had students compete and medal in tournaments in Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Round Rock, Spring Branch, Cedar Park and Las Vegas. 

On February 17th, they'll be taking 9 of their students from right here in Cotulla to compete at the IBJJF Pan Kids Championship held in Long Beach, California. 

Head Instructors, Jose Gonzalez, Cotulla High School Class of '99, and his wife Jennifer Gonzalez, say they're teaching their students how to be good people with a focus on respect and discipline. Students start as early as age 4 and go on through adults with classes 4 times a week. For more information give them a call at (210) 201-2371 or visit
