An amazing BJJ month for our Jiu Jitsu San Clemente Academy

July was an amazing month for our Jiu Jitsu Academy in San Clemente. Our bjj school and martial artists performed at their best during the biggest event in town and at 2 big tournaments in L.A. area.

To start, our academy received almost 20 kids for our 2011 Martial Arts Summer Camp. Our kids had so much fun that they voted our camp the best jiu jitsu camp in San Clemente.

At the same week, they also performed at the San Clemente’s Ocean Festival, both days, while other students fought at the South Bay Open tournament. Jonas Hawbecker, Rayom Ribeiro and Andre Pontes earned 3 more medals to our school.

On the following weekend, at the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Best of the West No Gi, 4  more medals were brought home from Joaquim O’Campo, Rayom Ribeiro and Ricardo Ribeiro. (P.S.  so far, since Jan 2011, our school earned more than 37 medals, including Jiu Jitsu Pan American Gold Medal by Sensei Paulo).

To finish the month, San Clemente head instructor Paulo recognized the improvements of our martial artists and gave a very well desrved BJJ purple belt to Jason Hughes, Andre Pretzel Pontes, Cody Walton; BJJ blue belt Chris Whelan, Ryan Rojas and Fernando Alves; and many stripes to our kids, adults and women who are moving up. Let’s keep the good work. Our BJJ San Clemente school is getting better and better.

Great Success at the 3rd Day of Jiu Jitsu Summer Camp San Clemente

Today, Wednesday, July 13rd, it was the 3rd day of our Jiu-Jitsu and Martial Arts Summer Camp, hosted at our academy in San Clemente. Almost 20 kids joined us for a full morning of fun, jiu jitsu and information. The day started with a great warm up of Ginastica Natural and jiu jitsu techniques. Some games were played after and, with the need to recharge their batteries, the kids decorated their own yummy cookie.

Sensei Paulo shared his own experience with bullies and some techniques in how to avoid and handle this frequent situation. All the students were encourage to share their stories. It was a very empowering moment.

The head instructor of our BJJ San Clemente left the best (fun) part to the end of the morning, when we all went to the part to our Jiu-Jitsu Water balloon Fight. Tomorrow: more fun to come!

A good way to be good at Jiu Jitsu? Perfect Attendance

There is a good and long list of ways to be improve your Jiu-Jitsu, that does not rely on talent. Our San Clemente Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Head Instructor says that attendance (followed by consistency) is on the top of his list. Take a look the picture and try to figure out from who this card belongs to…

Yes, that’s right: it’s not from an adult, but from a kid who is 8 years old, that does not have freedom to come and go. So… if a kid, with 4 other brothers, can make to these many classes… it means you do not have the right of excuse.

P.S.: At the end of the year, our San Clemente BJJ instructor will reward the student with the best attendance during 2011… As you can see, some jiu jitsu students are taking serious…
