After only being open since January Smash Gyms Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu won the Team Championship at the San Jose Open on July 30th 2011. Smash Gyms competitors won eight Gold medals, two Silvers and Two Bronze medals today at Independence High School in east San Jose. Smash Gyms took home the San Jose Open BJJ Team Trophy in one of our first tournaments as a team. Amazing performance by all the competitors! Many schools combined in an effort to gain more points to win the team trophy but since every one of our competitors medaled in the event we were still able to win the team trophy with less than half of the competitors of some other schools. Bay Area Brazilian Jiu-jitsu schools from San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Milpitas sent competitors. There were also competitors from all over California.
Smash Gyms grapplers included Sam Spengler, Eli Sanchez, Javier Martinez, Ruben Paredes, Patrick Kong, Rogelio Morales, David Armstead, Harry Handano, Sam Jung!
