San Clemente Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Seafest Guillobel BJJ

Last year, our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy had a booth at the 2009 San Clemente Seafest in partnership with our dear jiu-jitsu student Roberto Diaz. It was unbelievable how many complements we heard from Roberto’s secret panamanian clam chowder recipe. It was so tasteful that as I’m writing now, I get watery mouth.

Unfortunately, this year we didn’t find the time (to be more precise almost 2 days) to cook this delicious chowder. Roberto, a successful writer, and his wonderful yogini wife Marla just had a blessed child; and we are extremely excited for the Jiu-Jitsu Pro Gear Open on Oct 24th.

But, as you will see on the video above, Guillobel Jiu-Jitsu is community oriented. Somehow, while part of our team was training at the BJJ Competition Team that sunday, the other part of our family found time to support the event. And I guest, they got the best part: taste delicious claw shoulder at the most beautiful place in San Clemente. Next year, let’s do it all together.

The best reward from training at San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu

Last weekend, a lot of our students from San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu academy got together to celebrate blue belt Joshua’s 16th birthday. It was incredible how many of our students saved the time to be there. And that’s what makes me think of how much (and in how many ways) our academy changes people’s lives. It is extremely rewarding what our Martial Arts, gi, mentor, and sweat offer us.

After eating a delicious barbecue made by Mike, Paulo and I drove back home thinking: “the best part of all is our eternal friendship.”

Yours for Success,

Catarina Guillobel
