BJJ TOUR-American Cup

Last weekend we were in San Francisco competing at the BJJ Tour American Cup and so many came home with medals. Of the ten competitors we had, six walked away with gold medals and two with bronze. Jiu Jitsu is about learning and growing. Every day each of us work on our own techniques that need sharpening. We are happy to see the progress of everyone at the academy. 

 

Here are a few photos of our competitors

Pan American Camp

March 1 marked 15 days until the Pan American Championship. With 12 competitors from our academy going to Irvine to compete, the focus has been grooming and preparing them. We couldn't have done it without all the other students as well. They are coming day in and day out as our training partners with all the encouragement on our side. We are all in this together. The 7pm class was revamped (sorry to all the new students who were thrown into comp training). What used to be advanced technique class with ample drilling time was thrown aside and replaced with quick- 20 second speed drills with 4 reps each. Then 3-3-3 shark rolls, 10 minute rounds and 1 minute rounds as well on any given day. All of this was designed to help prepare us for multiple fights, strategic game play and endurance. This weekend is the last before we leave on Wednesday and I can confindently say that everyone is more than prepared. Our physical and mental mindset is there. Now it's just time to press PLAY 

Excellence

Pssst!! The word is out! We received a lovely email late last year that we had been awarded the Excellence in Small Business for Martial Arts in the city of Mountain View. We are beyond humbled. We want to thank every one of our students for their wonderful support and the grind, day in and out. This is a team effort and without the students, we wouldn't be here today. We now have the plaque to display in our academy! Please don't ever hesitate to stop by, swing by, come hang out or try a class with us... chances are, you'll end up staying for awhile 

MB Jiu Jitsu and Kickboxing -Watsonville

 

We've been hard at work these last few months and keeping our second baby under wraps. But now she's here and ready for her debut. We'd like to introduce you all to MB Watsonville Jiu Jitsu and Kickboxing! We have adult and kids Jiu Jitsu, taught by Alé Nogueira who is a black belt from São Paulo with over 20 years of experience and training. We also offer adult kickboxing taught by George who is has 15 years of knowledge under his gloves and punching bags!

 

This last weekend we had our first open mat and opened our doors to the Jiu Jitsu community. They did not disappoint! We had great training and appreciated everyone who came to support us!

 

Thank you again!

Families Training Together

These days we are so busy with work and our other obligations we can't enjoy our family and get in shape and we realize we must pick one.

But why not do both at the same time ? 

With brazilian jiu jitsu we can have passion and enjoy our family together. 

This weekend was an awesome weekend to exemplify it, my son and I competed and then my students Arturo Vega and his son Gino Vega fought. This just made me realize how awesome BJJ is and how it unites us with our loved ones. It doesn't matter if we win or lose what's important is staying connected and making new friends from our team Caio Terra Association these guys are like family, supporting us, coaching us, or just being there to hangout.
