Happy Birthday!

Well, it’s been one year since we started up the site and it has been great. We have had some great moments and some not-so-great moments, but all in all, it has been a really wonderful year.  To celebrate our one year anniversary and the holiday season, we are going to bring our own version of the 12 days of Christmas to you.  All of the JCBJJ purple belts will be bringing you one of their favorite techniques over the next 12 days. We might even throw in a surprise visit from Benson and Efrain too.  We hope you all enjoy the techniques as much as we enjoy bringing them to you.  Thanks to everyone who visits the site and supports the team, we really appreciate the love and support!

So, without further ado…..

Great Night at Goodyear BJJ

We went to Goodyear BJJ tonight and had a great time teaching a class to the students there.  Kevin Scott, a 4 stripe purple belt, has done an outstanding job with his team, and they were great to train with. Of course we want to congratulate four brand new Goodyear BJJ/JCBJJ Blue belts; Jose Acevedo, James Tran, Brandon Keomaka and Jordan Cano.  All four of these young men have been training hard and are very deserving of their new belts.  A big thanks to Kevin Scott for being such an important part of the JCBJJ family, and an all around great guy.  Thank you guys!

Ben Henderson v Frankie Edgar…Anyone excited?

The UFC just released their official UFC 144: Japan poster and it is awesome! We are very honored and excited to be going to Japan, it is going to be one heck of a fight as Benson gets the UFC strap placed around his waist. Can’t wait!

Ben’s Welcome Home Pictures are up!

Ok, I know we are a little late, but the pictures of Ben’s welcome home are up.  It was an awesome night, and Benson took pictures and signed autographs for over an hour.  It was great to see everyone come out and share the night; truly a team experience.  We want to give a big shout to Gary and Bueno Burger for providing the delicious food, and a special thanks to Jason Wozny for taking these great shots.  Please take a look at the pictures and take any that you want. Thanks again, see you all soon!

JCBJJ Technique of the Month: December

This month Luis Ordonez steps up to take his turn and shows us one of his favorite moves, the walk around armlock from the side mount. Luis is awesome around the academy, and assists with the teaching in the morning classes.  Thanks for showing this Luis!

Efrain Escudero gets the call: Back to the UFC!

After almost 18 months of work, and 5 impressive victories, Efrain Escudero is returning to the UFC.  Efrain, the Ultimate Fighter season 8 winner, has an impressive record of 18 wins and 3 losses, and has been working very hard to get back where he belongs; the big leagues.  Effy will be fighting  Jacob Volkmann in UFC 141 on December 30 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  The last year and a half has been a real test for Efrain, but he has faced his challenges and overcome them, and now it is his time, once again, to shine in the UFC.  Congratulations Efrain, we could not be more proud of how you have handled your road back to the top.
