The team had a great showing and were proud of everyone who competed.

The unofficial end of summer has occurred with a bang. The solar eclipse is happening as I write this note. Well also today was the first day of school for most of us down here in south Florida which means more free time for parents and their kids getting back into their regular schedule.
Well we are open as always and are looking forward to seeing everyone back from the summer vacation that some of our kids and parents took.

Congratulations to all of our competitors this past weekend! 07/13/17…

Congratulations to all of our competitors this past weekend! Everyone fought really hard and we had some excellent results. 5 gold medals and one silver. The only one missing from this podium is Hailey who also won gold in her first competition. I’m very proud of everyone who put themselves out there and tested themselves. Whether or not you ended up on the podium today you are a winner for testing yourselves. Until next time.

Summer camp is up and running and the staff and kids are 06/14/17…

Summer camp is up and running and the staff and kids are thrilled with the results. Professor Juan is back running the day to day events and the kids couldn’t be happier.
It is so important for kids to get an opportunity to be away from parents and teachers during the summer day hours giving them a chance to explore their environment and improve their social skills. Besides that it gives you parents some much needed time off to either get your work done or take care of home projects that are needed such as quality quiet time.
The kids are getting plenty of exercise and definitely improving their self defense skills everyday.
Thank you for entrusting us in helping to form well rounded and self sufficient children. We take this seriously and love our jobs 🙂

It’s that time of the year again for parents. The stress of finding a safe, fun and enriching summer camp program for their kids to keep them busy during the summer. Well you’ve found the right place. Renzo Gracie Jiu Jitsu’s summer camp program is starting again.
The kids attend year after year and are always thrilled to be back. We keep them busy and learning all summer long. I promise they’ll be tired and happy at the end of every day.

Our annual holiday bbq was once again an absolute great time. It is such a pleasure seeing all of our team mates and their families laughing and sharing stories with each other. There is nothing more I could ask then to see such a great bond created between everyone.
If you have any pictures that you’d like to share, please do.
Thank you to everyone who was able to make time in their busy schedules and come out and I’m sure that those who could’t this year will make it to the next event. And a huge thank you to everyone who cooked and brought such delicious food!

We’ve added to the schedule a Women Only Class. Due to high demand from our members and their family here it is. This means that on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 7pm while the regular adults fundamentals class is going on, women can choose to instead only train with other women. This is a great opportunity to learn how to defend yourself and at the same time be surrounded by other like minded women who want to learn, get in great shape and have an awesome time while doing it.

It’s a brand new year and our students and new ones as well 01/19/17…

It’s a brand new year and our students and new ones as well are setting off on the right foot. Everyone’s been on the mats getting physically healthier and getting their heads in the right mood with great training.
Come on in if you’d like to join them in learning how to properly defend yourself while getting in great shape and surrounding yourself with positive people while training Renzo Gracie Jiu Jitsu.

Well we did it again. Another (9th) annual belt ceremony. 12/15/16…

Well we did it again. Another (9th) annual belt ceremony. Congratulations to all of you. This is a recognition of the countless hours you have put in. Intermixed with your sweat and determination there have been many laughs and smiles. The belt is really only a self satisfying acknowledgement that isn’t necessary. All of their fellow team mates knew long ago they deserved the promotion. Let’s all keep it up and continue on the forever journey of personal growth we call Jiu Jitsu. Renzo Gracie Weston forever!

The No Armed Bandit

Stan Beck shows how when you start by attacking a kimura from side position you can easily switch to attacking his back. In doing so using this technique, you are trapping both of his arms leaving him defenseless to a choke.
