A week has passed since the IBJJF World Championships and the momentum hasn’t slowed down any around the gym. Lotus Club Fight & Fitness would like to congratulate our first adult IBJJF World Champion Martinez Jessie! Martinez joined our team a few months ago and came to us with some previous grappling experience, and while he had some holes in his game, our instructors knew there was a lot of potential for him to do great things. Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team trained hard and put together a strong camp for all of our competitors with the help of our teammates from Brazil Wellington Modena and Rider Zuchi. Martinez trained hard every day, plugged many of the holes in his jiu jitsu game and put on a very impressive performance to win the gold. As training continues, it’s obvious that Martinez’s win has only stoked the fire for the rest of our competitors and there’s certainly no signs of anyone slowing down. Coming up we have the AZSBJJF State Championships on June 25th and 26th, followed by the IBJJF American Nationals in Las Vegas. We want to wish all of our competitors luck, and are excited to see what the future holds.
We have a strong, tight-knit team and with easy access from anywhere in the valley with the use of the 101 or 303 freeways, there’s no reason to not stop in and check us out. You too can become a WORLD CHAMPION with the world class training provided at Lotus Club Fight & Fitness. With our a variety of different classes and different trainers, there’s something for everyone.
