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 

Rumble in the Redwoods 2017

 

This past weekend our students fought at Rumble In The Redwoods and had great success! They were driven, methodical and precise. We had 10 students compete Five of them walked away with gold medals, and 4 students closed their divisions with gold and silver! Great job to everyone. This was a nice warm up before Pans! 

 

Thanks for the group photo Eric!
