Our Kids Jiu-Jitsu Program keeps making us proud.

This past Saturday, April 28th, our friend Cleber Luciano has hosted the 21st Copa Pacifica Tournament and like every year we take a team to represent our School and San Pedro. We want to say thank you for students for going out there and battling it out fiercely and leaving it all on the mat and also thank the parents for trusting us with the safety and well-being of their children on our Martial Arts Program.

The kids mostly had a rough patch this time and we took the tournament as a lesson learned. We all must train hard and stay focus daily in order to keep getting better. Although like every year we make champions this time was no different – Quinn Cook (8) scored 1st place on his very first tournament.

Thank you all again for showing up and fighting hard and showing an immense amount of heart.

One More Belt Ceremony On The Books.

Hello everyone!,

On Saturday, December 9th, we had another Christmas Belt Ceremony for our Teens and Adult students. Our Christmas Ceremony was a total success and we all couldn’t be any prouder of our Team ( Family ). This year, 2017, was an awesome year full of accomplishments.

The San Pedro Jiu-Jitsu scene gets stronger by the day and we are very proud to be the #1 Martial Arts School in town and the Original Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu School as well. Thanks to you that make our Home your home and for being part of this great family!

Here is some of the moments captured by, the one and only, Chris Nguyen, from his lenses straight to you.

 

Our Adult Program also has new colors: a new batch of Blue belts…

 

A brand new PSBJJ Purple belt: ( as he said, “no more playing games… road to black belt!”)

Mario Gonzalez couldn’t be more stoked!!!

And we also had all kids of other students receiving their stripes for their accomplishments and commitment.

 

Below is a shot of those whom got promoted to their new belts and a group shot of our beautiful Family.

If you know someone that needs a “turn around” in life, whether they are struggling with weight, sedentary lifestyle, depression or simply needs a little excitement.. please share this article with them and Share all the benefits you have had so far from our Jiu-Jitsu Program with them.

Wow! It has been too long again since last post. Ma bad…

The funny thing is… the last post was about the In House Tournament, held here at our School, and this post now is also about the San Clemente In House Tournament, held at our “mothership” the Guillobel BJJ Academy. Once again San Pedro was well represented in San Clemente by 9 of our students. Our team scored 3 golds out of 4 divisions and we couldn’t be any prouder. Everyone fought hard regardless of the finishing results.

 

Thank you all that took your precious time, on a Saturday morning and battling on the mats of Sensei Guillobel’s Academy. You all looked great and I’m sure you came out of there a better person and athlete.

On June 17th, our 8th Annual In House took place at our School and it was an awesome turn out. Every year we invite a couple different academies and gather on our mats for a friendly competition with the objective of exposing the students to the competition environment and experience, as well as testing their skills on a safe and controlled environment.

The competition started at 9am with the white belts and it was full of action and awesome matches. The highlight of the morning really was the women bracket made out of our students and they really put on the show. An awesome display of heart and technique. At 11am the Blue belts started and they took over the mats with more great matches.

Here some pictures of the action:

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.

San Pedro Martial Arts

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

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!

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
