Last year the top students from our Guillobel BJJ-SC Competition Team fought at the Nationals under UNIJJ, who won the competition last year as the best team in the nation. UNIJJ was created by Saulo and Xande Ribeiro (Saulo is Paulo Guillobel’s teacher and mentor). Go, UNIJJ! Bring home also the 2010 trophy!

The Character Counts! Jamboree is a yearly event where booths showcase community services, reinforce the Character Counts theme of personal responsibility and provide a day of family fun. Guillobel Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente and its team performed last year. This year whoever we’ll have a booth at the event. Please come to check it out and help us. Admission to the Jamboree is free.

The Character Counts! is “an educational framework for teaching universal values and a national coalition of organizations that support each other.” It has 6 pillars: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship. Guillobel Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente embraces those 6 pillars inside and outside the mat.
