It has been almost 2 months since our last post and I promise you in wont happen again!
In these 2 past months, since Sensei Paulo Guillobel’s amazing Seminar, so much has happened and a lot more is coming as the end of the year approaches.
Our Team has brought some medals and some pretty big accomplishments to our School. Last September in Las Vegas, NV the IBJJF 2015 Worlds Masters took place and we brought 2 gold medals home! Ken Teshima took the gold in the blue belt division – Master 5 – middle weight and 2nd place in the Absolute Division, also our very Marine Corps Veteran and Coach Brian Mendez took 1st place in the brown belt middle weight – Master 1 – defeating 5 opponents with 4 wins by submission, an amazing display of heart and determination.
Las Vegas – Sep. 2015
In October, this past month, our friend Gerson Sanginitto hosted and In House Tournament at his academy in Culver City and this time the kids team was in action! The kids brought lots of “hardware” back to San Pedro. Here are the results:
Jarry Sessions, Craigy Ferguson and Evan Maes – 1st place / Brody Plummer, Avry Castro – 2nd place
San Pedro BJJ Team
Also last month Sensei went back to the Judo mats for a team competition besides Ken and Clifton Teshima, representing the Gardena Judo Club and took 2nd place. Sensei won both of his matches by “ippon”(perfect point), not bad after a 10 years lay off.
Ten years layoff and back at it!
This past weekend Coach Brian Mendez and Francisco McClure went back to the IBJJF mats for the 2015 Worlds NoGi Championships and the results were some more “hardware”! Francisco McClure took 1st place in the purple belt, Super Heavy weight – Master 4 and Coach Brian Mendez took 3rd in the brown belt, Middle weight – Master 1
