Medals Keep Pilling Up for DCJJ Students

Congratulations to Stirling and Joaquin for an amazing performance on 2 April at the US Grappling tournament in Laurel, MD. Stirling with only 3 weeks of training, won double-gold and in adult gi and no-gi, executing the custom-made game plan we made for him, to perfection. Joaquin once again dominated the over 30 age division winning a gold medal in gi and a silver in no-gi. Both men had multiple submission victories. We could not have been more proud of them!

Great BJJ Visit in Brussels, Belgium

While visiting Brussels, I decided to train at the Malicia Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Team. The team was very welcoming with a number of back belts and brown belts among others. Their hospitality was second to none and I really enjoyed all my super-technical rolls there. If you ever in Belgium please stop by and visit them. You’ll not regret it!
