Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente 2010 End of the Year

Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente Team got together last night, Dec 15th, to celebrate our friendship. Our 3 top BJJ black belts and more than 120 students and family members honored us with their presence. Our Jiu-Jitsu head instructor Paulo Guillobel started the night with the accomplishments of 2010. Looking back, our family grew so much and so powerful that our team earned in 2010 more than 60 medals and 2 big team trophies – proving that Guillobel Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente stands for high performance.

After the speech of our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu master, we all took the 2010 Guillobel BJJ Team Picture of the Year at our San Clemente facility. The Team End of the Year Picture is now a tradition in our academy. The picture will be hang forever in our walls because we are not only making friends but also history. At the end of our BJJ ceremony, Professor Paulo upgraded a lot of martial artists students with belts and stripes, including our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Andre Lucic that earned his 3rd stripe after completed more than 9 years as a BJJ Black Belt.

Unfortunately, almost half of our team couldn’t make it to the picture… next year we have more. For now, let’s make history on the mat.

San Clemente Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu received today almost 20 women for its BJJ Women Self-Defense Seminar. Police Officer Robert Foss and San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Instructors Paulo Guillobel and Andre Lucic made not only this seminar possible, but incredible. All Three of this top team brought their best insights and knowledge about sexual assault awareness, self-defense, and human behavior.

The BJJ Women Self-Defense Seminar started with a very powerful presentation by Officer Foss on this shocking reality, with accurate statistics and tips on how to avoid those harmful situations, followed by very effective self-defense techniques taught by BJJ Black Belt Paulo Guillobel. The seminar was very informative and hands on and, as Kelly Austin (one of the attendees) said, “it was an amazing seminar!”.

Guillobel Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente in partnership with Police Officer Robert Foss are determined to help our San Clemente community by bringing awareness to sexual assaults against women.

San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu bows to this Example of Goal Settings

San Clemente BJJ Instructor Paulo Guillobel took 8 years to earn his jiu-jitsu black belt. But it’s not about how long it takes, It is about achieving it and the extraordinary feeling of doing so. Everything started because our professor had set a goal, and he’s never taken his mind away from it. His goal was to wear proudly the top belt, but most importantly, to live, to know, and to honor what that belt represents.

San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu knows how important goal setting is to anyone to accomplish their dreams – on the mat or outside of it. Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy respectfully bows to San Clemente resident William “Bill” Laity for becoming the world’s record holder of the longest continuous surf session. That’s a great example of goal setting and accomplishment. Very impressive! Very inspiring! Watch this video above and tell me what you think.
