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.
