San Clemente BJJ Instructor Paulo Guillobel took 8 years to earn his jiu-jitsu black belt. But it’s not about how long it takes, It is about achieving it and the extraordinary feeling of doing so. Everything started because our professor had set a goal, and he’s never taken his mind away from it. His goal was to wear proudly the top belt, but most importantly, to live, to know, and to honor what that belt represents.

San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu knows how important goal setting is to anyone to accomplish their dreams – on the mat or outside of it. Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy respectfully bows to San Clemente resident William “Bill” Laity for becoming the world’s record holder of the longest continuous surf session. That’s a great example of goal setting and accomplishment. Very impressive! Very inspiring! Watch this video above and tell me what you think.
