Paragon Jiu Jitsu Dallas is moving to a 7,000-square-foot space at 710 W. Davis. The studio first opened on Madison near the Texas Theatre in 2010. Owner and coach John Brink hired Rick Garza and RPGA Design Group Inc. to transform a warehouse, near Brumley Gardens, into a martial arts studio.
The new facility features three times the “mat space” as the old studio, plus a dedicated kickboxing area and an 800-square-foot personal fitness studio. There are also locker rooms with showers and bleachers that can accommodate 100 spectators for classes or tournaments.
A grand opening is planned from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26.
