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.

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.

Special shout out to Eddie McKenna (Hey Day Fitness San Pedro), 31, for scoring 1st place in his division with only about a month of training. Great exciting matches!

Below a couple more pics from our awesome Saturday morning.

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:
