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!

Summer camp is a big hit again. The kids have been having an absolutely great time. Besides being in a safe, healthy atmosphere, they’ve been playing really hard in the park and learning Jiu Jitsu everyday.
I think the parents are having as good a time as the kids because when the kids get home they are exhausted and happy, which means early to bed and free time for the parents 🙂

We are very excited to have another Summer Camp almost upon us. 05/25/16…

Our annual BBQ is quickly coming upon us. This is a great event that every 03/30/16…

Our annual BBQ is quickly coming upon us. This is a great event that every year gets bigger and bigger. Family and friends are invited to this party.
It’s on April 23rd at Markham Park. This year we have Shelter #2. It’s bigger than our past shelter with bathrooms connected to it. Yay!
There is also a beach volley ball court, more bbq grills, next to the kids playground and mountain bike trails.
Be sure not to miss this event. It’s is such a fantastic time. Good food and cold drinks all day and always lots of laughs.
If you would like to bring some food, drinks, snacks or ice please let me know because I will supply everything else. More important than bringing anything is you showing up.
The party starts at 12 noon and ends when the rangers kick us out every year when the suns sets.
Looking forward to playing with you there!

We have finished the last phase of our construction of the new training 01/21/16…

We have finished the last phase of our construction of the new training facility. Not only is our training mat bigger, locker rooms bigger, showers nicer, but we now also have a private training and play room. So for private classes, or if our adult students want to come in and train on their own during regular classes they now have a private training room to do so. There is a tv in there that they can “shoot” videos from their phone directly onto the tv and study techniques that way.
Also during our kids or adult classes, if they have a little one with them, they can go into the private room and play or watch movies. This room has a camera in it that will project onto a tv in the main waiting room so that parents can keep a watchful eye on their kids.
This is a great addition for everyone.
I hope everyone loves it!

We have had many exciting events here lately. What with 2 seminars from world class instructors and now on Saturday, Dec. 5th we are having our annual holiday and belt ceremony party.
I am really excited to hand out these hard earned belts to all of my students. I couldn’t be prouder of all of my kids and adults who train here. The quality of their Jiu Jitsu and the way they handle themselves on and off the mat is beyond reproach.

This Saturday, 10/24/15 we are having special guest instructor Karl Pravic coming to teach a seminar.
Karl is one of the most technical instructors at the main NYC academy. He is a specialist of using leverage to submit and dominate his opponents. This is one seminar you definitely don’t want to miss.

We have been in our new location for about 2 months now and everyone is really loving the new space. Be it the larger mat or the expanded locker rooms and private training room that is being built, everyone seems really happy.
Remember we will be having a party celebrating the new space and back from the summer event on Sunday October 4th at 1pm. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone here.

Jiu Jitsu Arm Bar Escape

Great and easy arm bar escape taught by Stan Beck at the Renzo Gracie Jiu Jitsu and Training Center of Weston. No matter how heavy or strong your opponent is, this is a great way to escape and get top position when you are being attacked.
