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…
We are very excited to have another Summer Camp almost upon us. The kids are talking about it and the parents are excited to have their kids in a safe, fun and skill learning activity through the summer.
If you would like some information about it, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Here is the Summer Camp page with more information
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 10/19/2015…
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 09/11/15…
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.
We have some really exciting news. We will be moving the academy 06/18/15…
We have some really exciting news. We will be moving the academy to a much bigger location in one month. Starting 7/13/15 Renzo Gracie Jiu Jitsu will be at 1901 Shotgun Rd. It is a bigger location with a much bigger mat and now we will also have a lounge room that will be matted and have couches and TV as well. This way you can watch technique videos and practice them right there in that room or just relax before or after your class.
We will also have a video camera in the lounge room so that way when kids are playing in there, parents can supervise their activities from the Jiu Jitsu viewing area on a closed circuit TV
There will also be several really nice amenities that I am sure all of you will really enjoy.
Time to start thinking about what you are going to do for Summer Camp 03/17/15…
Time to start thinking about what you are going to do for Summer Camp for your kids. Many of our parents have been asking if we are doing it again this year and the answer is of a resounding Yes! The kids love it and we have a great time with them every summer.
Camp starts this year on June 8th. We meet every day at a local park so the kids can get about 1.5 hours of outdoor play everyday before it gets too hot out. Then there is jiu jitsu every day (their skills skyrocket over the summer), alternating days of CrossFit or Kickboxing, as well as games and arts and crafts. Once a week we have a pizza party as well as a movie theater outing in our shopping center that we pay for both.
