What an amazing weekend!! From full mats, and the changing of belts, to meeting new friends and sharing from a DEEP well of knowledge of the art of Jiu Jitsu, this was hands down one of the best events of the year!
Congratulations to all of our new blue and purple belts, and a very special congratulations to our newest Black Belt, Professor Chris Corros and Professor Kim on her first degree promotion!
We had several black belts visiting this year from places like Germany, Ecuador, New Mexico and right here in SoCal. With so many instructors on the mat teaching, there was bound to be at least one or two techniques that fit well with everyone’s game, I know I picked up a couple! Technical learning aside, this weekend showed how incredibly impactful Jiu Jitsu can be. Jiu Jitsu as a martial art is formidable, boundless, and fun. Jiu Jitsu as a community is extensive, healing and beautiful!
This weekend was a testament to perseverance, beauty and just how great this martial art can be. I truly am grateful to be part of this martial art, it’s community but more importantly the EDJ Family. Back to training tonight. Can’t wait to see you on the mats!
