Jiu Jitsu Athletes shine

Excel Jiu Jitsu Oceanside had a handful of competitors step on the mats and show some amazing talent. One of the biggest creed’s we go by is to ‘Never Give Up’. All fighters fought until the final buzzard sounded.

We had some spectacular come from behind victories as well as some heart breaking defeats. It’s all good as all athletes walk away with more experience and more grit for the next event.

We had our youth athletes do awesome in performance as well as display great character. Our Kids BJJ competitors worked hard and hustled in their matches and put out some smooth Jiu Jitsu.

We also had our adult competitors put out some amazing matches. The tournament as a whole was an incredible display of some of the best Jiu Jitsu around.  Congratulations once again to everyone that endured the day. This includes the support team that stuck it out, cheered and applauded until the last fighter competed.

San Diego has incredible Jiu Jitsu

Although most of the competitors were from San Diego and Los Angeles area, there were many athletes that came from afar. We talked to a handful of competitors that flew in from Brazil and from Japan.  Everyone was respectful and were good sports.

Just a quick note for our Kids BJJ program; To all parents, your child will benefit greatly from these events as they help to shape the character of all boys and girls. These events help to build up toughness in children, and that toughness will help them in life.
