Wow, we’re right in the middle of a really exciting time for BJJ in Buford. Some of the highlights can be found below:
On Thursday Feb 20, we had Chris Moriarty come in and give us some awesome tips on how to use Judo effectively in competition. His workshop was absolutely amazing!!!
On Friday Feb 21, tons of Gentry’s Jiu Jitsu students moved up from the Fundamental to the Advanced Classes after performing near perfect tests.
The following day, Coach Phillipe did a seminar at the school where we went over the IBJJF rules and how to use them to your advantage when in competition.
And now we’re ramping up for Lutador this Sat March 1st. There are 12 Gentry’s members jumping on the mats to compete this weekend. Some of which are seasoned vets and others are trying it out for the first time. We’re so excited for everyone and BJJ in Buford as a whole. Everyone has worked really hard and is looking great.
Next weekend, on Sat March 8th, we will be heading down to Alliance Head Quarters to watch Coach Phillipe’s Black Belt ceremony. It’s been a long journey for the Coach and we are extremely excited for him. We also did some research and it turns out he will be the first and only Black Belt in BJJ in Buford. That’s nuts, right?…..!!!
The ceremony will take place at Alliance HQ located at 4630 North Shallowford Rd. Dunwoody, GA 30338. It will begin at 10 AM and last about an hour. All of the Alliance BJJ Founding Fathers will be in town for the ceremony and will also be offering a seminar at 1pm that same day.
That’s right… Alexandre Paiva, Fabio Gurgel and Jacare will be putting on a 3 hour seminar and are only charging $100 for it. If you want to participate, let Coach Phillipe know, and he’ll be able to help you out.
