Our San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu one more time proves that we stand for performance. Last weekend, March 24th – 27th, at University of California Irvine the entire Jiu-Jitsu World was watching the best competitors fight. And our San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu team wouldn’t be out.
Our San Clemente BJJ students brought 4 medals home: 2 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze – which is an amazing result. Besides their impressive achievements, on Saturday was the time of our jiu-jitsu head instructor Paulo. Guillobel, like last year, brought a very solid, strategic and tight jiu jitsu game: take downs, amazing guard defense, sweeps, guard pass, side control and submissions. He simply built his way to the tallest step of the podium, out of 11 BJJ competitors, comfortably.
After guaranteed his jujitsu Gold medal on his division, our San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu black belt 4 stripes decided to compete for the Absolute Division (division which anyone, with no limit weight, can participate). Our professor faced on his first match the heaviest and strongest competitor over 270 pounds. Our San Clemente master won all the way to the final after 4 fights. At the final, our master caught up by points with the competitor. Being even, the decision was made by the referee – that gave it to the opponent. San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu instructor Paulo then won a Silver medal for his amazing fights at the Black Belt Absolute division in 2011.
P.S.: BJJ Sensei Paulo in all his career earned 4 Jiu-Jitsu Pan American gold medals.
