Our San Clemente Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy will be (again) well represented next weekend, March 24-27th 2011, at the BJJ Pan American Championship, the 2nd biggest brazilian ju jitsu tournament in the world.

Last year, our San Clemente Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu head instructor Paulo won his division after an amazing performance, bringing home not only the gold medal but also recognition in our local newspaper, the San Clemente Times. It was his 3rd Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Pan American Gold Medal.

After winning 5 top competitors at the 2010 Pan Ams, Sensei Paulo showed all his students that competition is the best way for you to become not only a better competitor but also a better person. “It’s very inspiring to see that your instructor, after more than 24 years of dedication to BJJ, still pushing himself, never stopping learning… Sensei Paulo is an amazing teacher, and for me he is an amazing role model… he teaches by example, and that’s the best way to teach”, says one of his jiu-jitsu blue belts student.

Again in 2011, our San Clemente Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teacher will go for the gold one more time, ‘for me the first place means better performance. At least on that day and time’, says our master while getting ready for one of his hard BJJ training. Sensei Paulo trains under guidance of 6 times Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion Saulo Ribeiro, from UNIJJ in San Diego.

A good way to represent our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy – San Clemente

‘To have a team such as our San Clemente BJJ is the same as to have a family.  We have such a respect and caring for each other that when I step on a competition, all I can think about is all the people that helped my out. My victory is my team’s victory’, complements Sensei Paulo when explaining for what he fights for.

The 2011 BJJ Pan American will be held 35 minutes from San Clemente at 100 Bren Event Center, University California Irvine – Irvine, California
