The Academy wins five medals at West Coast Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament

Four Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu students from The Academy of Martial Arts & Fitness went to Campbell River on June 7 to compete in the West Coast Island BJJ tournament.

All four Comox Valley competitors came home with medals – two silvers and three bronze.

All competitions have ups and downs, and this was no different than any other. The best thing that comes form competing is seeing what is truly working in your style and what is not. It’s always a privilege to coach students and see them grow as Jiu-Jitsu practioners and individuals.

If you are interested in trying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for sport, self-defence or just for fun, stop by The Academy, 279 Puntledge Rd. unit C, or visit the website comoxvalleymartialarts.com
