Congratulations to our hard working kids that received BJJ belt promotion honors for the month of October. We had two testing dates and every child passed their exams with flying colors.

The exams covered things that we do on a weekly basis in class as well as some history on the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Having a basic grasp on Leadership qualities is a must. We are looking forward to these boys and girls continued progress in the Martial Arts.

Belt Promotion Awards Jiu JitsuCongrats to Ryan Jackson, Kris Motyl and Dwayne Mercer on receiving promotions in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

These athletes love and take their Jiu Jitsu seriously. We are extremely proud and honored to work with these Martial Artists on a regular basis.

The Jiu Jitsu journey is filled with ups and downs, highs and lows to help build and shape the character of the Martial Artist. It’s important to understand that you cannot make this journey alone. You will need the help of teammates, of other dedicated practitioners and of competent coaches and mentors that can help make those dramatic jumps in improvement. The better our training partners are, the better we all become.


Hard Work Pays off

Jiu Jitsu is a very intense Martial Art that requires attention to details, crystal clear focus and a strong desire to succeed.

Every workout is a lesson in humility. You must keep an open mind and pay attention to everything in the moment as well as having a vision of what’s ahead. Jiu Jitsu Martial Arts is a long and exciting endeavor. The athletes that got promoted this month have taken another huge step in their Jiu Jitsu Journey.

We are looking forward to continued success!
