Good Bye For The Holidays From San Pedro BJJ


To all our members and followers we would like to say goodbye one last time before we close our doors for the holidays, 2014 was a great year here at the San Pedro Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy, we shared many great moments and grew both as individuals and as a team.

Throughout the year we saw many new faces,
and had the opportunity to visit new places,
we traveled around in pursuit of new missions,
and came home well represented at BJJ competitions,
whether they came home with silver or came home with gold
we are thankful to all of you for being so bold!

While we may not be the best at writing poetry we would definitely like to express gratitude to the whole PSBJJ family for allowing us to serve you this year and for keeping the faith in our program, 2014 was the first time since arriving in the states that Sensei Pedro went back home to Brazil, while he was gone the whole team came together and kept the show running for 7 weeks. We hope everyone keeps up the hard work going into the new year, not just on the mats but in their lives as well. Here’s to a successful and prosperous 2015 and to a great remaining 2014.


Signing off for the year -PSBJJ Management Team. OSS.

San Pedro Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s Newest Brother In Blue


As promised we are bringing you the latest updates from San Pedro Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu every week. This weeks blog is in honor of Mr. Ken Teshima. As many of you know, Saturday December 13th was our annual year end Belt Promotion Ceremony, we had many of our brothers and sisters move up in rank and now with great pride we would like to congratulate Ken Teshima on becoming PSBJJ’s newest Blue Belt! Although Mr. Teshima is one of our newer members, make no mistake, he is a grappling veteran in his own right holding the rank of Black Belt in Judo. Ken had a great year of training and finished out with a bang, entering and winning the Absolute Division(Open Weight)at the IBJJF Worlds Masters Jiu-Jitsu Tournament as well as taking home Silver in his Weight Class. Needless to say the promotion was well deserved. Thank you for your continued dedication and contributions to the Gentle Art, your presence is always appreciated on the mat.

San Pedro Jiu-Jitsu Year End Belt Promotion Ceremony


San Pedro BJJ held it’s annual year end Belt Promotion Ceremony this past Saturday the 13th. We would like to thank all of our family members for attending and for everyone’s continued belief in our program. Special thanks goes to our students for their dedication to our mission of building more confident & respectful citizens through teaching the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Sensei Pedro let us know on Saturday that being a Black Belt isn’t just about knowing Self-Defense, it’s about having the Black Belt attitude no matter where you are. We had five students that showed exceptional Black Belt attitudes this year and as a result, were all bumped up, they now have taken the next step towards their Black Belts and all received brand new belts. Congratulations to Joey Spaleta, Chris Suarez, Zach Suarez and Caden Kane who all earned their first belt promotions and became PSBJJ’s newest White & Yellow Belts. Also Congratulations to Jarry Sessions Jr. Who is now Yellow belt. All well deserved. We hope the whole team keeps up the outstanding work! Stay tuned for our next blog and find out how our Adult Belt Promotion Ceremony went.
