2011 started off great at Guillobel Jiu-Jitsu and Martial Arts in San Clemente!

Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente January Student of the Month

Children, Teenagers and Adults martial artists are working hard to conquer their goals for the year. BJJ Medal chasers are already bringing back home some fresh gold (Awesome Job Joaquim and Mitch!). It is just a little taste of what will come on the following months inside and out of our jiu-jitsu mats.

Every month, one of the hardest tasks for the coaches at our Jiu-Jitsu San Clemente Academy is to decide the “Student of the Month”. The main reason is our kids have been working extra hard to achieve BJJ Black Belt attitude level, inside and outside of the mats. Sensei Paulo recently shared the following thought in the Gold Leadership Program Class: “Leadership Is Example.”

Therefore, the BJJ Student of the Month must be a Role Model to the class, and he / she will have the opportunity to lead the class for the entire following month. Sensei Mehdi wisely said: “It takes a good follower to become a good leader”. If one doesn’t know how to learn, how can he / she know how to teach?

January 2011 Jiu-Jitsu Little Kids Student of the Month, Christian Ziesmer, has proven to be a great follower and leader, demonstrating amazing focus, self control and positive attitude, not to mention he is getting tougher by the day on the mats! Furthermore, he understands that the status of “Student of The Month” comes with glories, but with responsibilities as well. Therefore, he has been doing an excellent job in leading the warm up drills alongside the coaches and remains being a great example to be followed by whoever wishes to be awarded “Student of The Month”. Our BJJ Martial Artist Christian is currently a white belt with 2 stripes (1 white for skill levels and 1 golden for behavior and participation) and if he keeps up his commitment level, soon enough, he will start adding colors to his belt as well as trophies to his collection! Great Job Christian!!

Being a Student of The Month at our San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Martial Arts Academy is a full time job, so keep working hard, because we are watching closely! Have a great week and let’s all keep improving that 1% a day!
