Latest News From Our School – News and Recognition

Hello everyone!

These past two weeks were pretty eventful and History was made here in San Pedro. Lets start with the weekend before last. On Feb 17th, 2018 our dear friend and Sensei Mauricio Tinguinha came for his 3rd time to our School to teach his craft to our team. Sensei Tinguinha brought to our mats a set of techniques of Spider Guard and it is needless to say that it was an awesome high level class. We also had the pleasure to have Sensei Paulo Guillobel on the mat with us for the Seminar. In addition to a great time on the Seminar, we had our veery first Black Belt promotion at our School. Yeah! That is right… Our School is near 12 years old now and the first seed from San Pedro is now Black Belt. Tim O’Donnell (39), active student under Sensei Pedro Soriano since 2008, has been promoted the rank of Black Belt. Tim is a father of two, an husband, ILWU member and last but not least a person of character and values, loyal and true samurai spirit.

San Pedro has other Black Belts but Mr. O’Donnell is the first Black Belt to be awarded a Black Belt in Town after training from White to Black. Below are some pictures of this amazing weekend.

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!”)

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:
