And The 2 Winners From BJJ San Clemente Are…

One of BJJ San Clemente School’s goal is to create the best friendly and family environment possible. So far, our students feedbacks and just the amazing feeling to be around so many friends (inside and outside the mat) were our confirmation that Guillobel Jiu-Jitsu is the best academy. But after our Fundraiser, our friendship was moved to a whole new level.

My mom always said that “you see who is your friend when you truly need them”.

BJJ San Clemente and its students are proud to be there for Dave and more 8 people who lost everything last Jan 21st after a fire burned entirely their building. A total of $315+ were raised from our students  in only 1 week and couple days. Isn’t this amazing, hum?

Today, Dave himself thanked all for the support, friendship and generosity. He picked the winner of the jiu-jitsu gears that our BJJ San Clemente Academy donated. And the winners are…

– Jason Hughes won Saulo Ribeiro’s New Line Gi; and

– Christa and Ryder won the BJJ Kid’s Basket with Guillobel T-Shirt, our BJJ Backpack, and Hat.

Thank you all our martial arts, friends and residents of San Clemente, Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano for helping.

San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Together to Help a Friend

San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Students House on Fire

“San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu is more than an academy. We are brothers and sister from different mothers and fathers”, says BJJ Black Belt Paulo Guillobel trying to break the ice for a very sad reality.

Unfortunately, today a 4 unit building got on fire and absolutely nothing could be saved. The building was home of one of our student, Dave Davidson.

Our San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu School Says No to Bully

How much bully hurts?

Guillobel Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente addresses one of the most common form of violence in the USA, the bullying. Our Jiu-Jitsu Kids and Little Kids Empowerment Programs offer a permanent and fast solution for who is been facing this subtle but terrible aggression. And our approach starts with awareness:

“A lot of people don’t know that bully is not only a physical aggression. The term Bully has more than 7 variations of names, such as teasing and gossiping. That’s right! People see gossiping as a ‘normal’ action, but it’s a very disrespectful action against any person… pretty much any form that you can hurt people’s feeling is an aggression… and gossiping is one of them. A feeling hurt causes more damage than scratches in the body”, says Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente Head Instructor Paulo in an interview.

Guillobel BJJ School in California brings awareness, solutions and empathy to all its students, so they can never be a victim in the first place. Our San Clemente School is associated to Character Counts! and with their guidance we are always on top of this subject. Today we would like to share with you this article – hope it’s helpful.

Decrease bullying by increasing empathy
