San Clemente BJJ kept 2 of  the 4 Jiu-Jitsu Pro Gear Open San Clemente trophies. Under Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Paulo Guillobel‘s guidance, more than 50 students from our San Clemente academy fought last Oct 24th. Besides the many medals, our kids did the best performance comparing with all the other academies from California, Arizona and Nevada that fought at the first JJPG Open. Our BJJ adult students did also an amazing job: we won the 2nd place for the best Jiu-Jitsu Adults  Team.

Sensei Paulo is very impressive with all our  BJJ practitioner’s performance. Of course, we always have to keep polishing ourselves, but as a team, we just ROCK! It was incredible to see everyone helping each other, cheering, supporting, taking pictures. So beautiful to see and to be part of this family.

Besides our BJJ students that were representing us on the mats, we can’t forget our students that were running the tournament. From the entrance, to the referees, to the score keepers, every where that I looked I saw the most familiar and friendly faces. And it was the most comforting thing that busy day for Paulo and I.

Without every one of you, we would not be able to put this Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition together. Thank you so much! Next year, it’ll be much much better. Believe me, we all learned a lot.

Together we go faster and further.
