The Best Armbar Video?

In this old video Smash Gyms Head Instructor Michael Jen speaks about creating postural deviations while applying an armbar in Jiu-jitsu, grappling or MMA. Michael, who received his black belt from Joe Moreira 10 years ago, has long been known as one of the most technical BJJ Instructors in the world.

Michael teaches BJJ at Smash Gyms located on the border of Santa Clara and Sunnyvale.

 

Smash is located just 5 minutes from Rivermark Plaza and Mercado Shopping Center in Santa Clara!

Smash Gyms Jiu-Jitsu Team Highlights from American Cup

Below are some of the highlights from The Smash Gyms Jiu-jitsu Team's dominating performance at the American Cup in San Jose at Independence High School. A vast majority of our Jiu-Jitsu students choose not to compete and grapple recreationally for fun and fitness. Those that choose to compete have done very well. In our beginner friendly BJJ program we do not push our students to compete, but if they choose to we help to provide them all the tools necessary to be successful.

Smash is fortunate to have top level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instruction with very high level wrestling and judo combined into a comprehensive grappling program that will safely progress beginners at an accelerated pace. Our system is designed as a path for the average person to progress safely and quickly into an expert grappler.

Smash Gyms After School Tutoring and Martial Arts Parent Testimonial

One of the parents from our Kids Fitness and Martial Arts After School Program gave some great feedback on how this program has helped his children.  The Noble family lives in Milpitas and their two oldest kids regularly attend the Smash Gyms tutoring and after-school martial arts program near Santa Clara.
"Huge thank you to Debbie Sanchez, Eli Sanchez and The Smash Gyms Team for introducing the afterschool activity and tutoring program for kids!!! 

Both Nannette and I have had our struggles trying to find ways to minimize the amount of time our kids were spending specifically on just school activity. With them going to school each day for 6 1/2 hour and coming home to work on 3 hours of homework (totaling 9.5 hours a day)this did not allow the kids much time to have a childhood.

Since they have been going to Smash's after-school program this has allowed both Nya and Louie to complete their homework activity's before 5pm, improve their comprehension skills and go straight into the kids BJJ class for some physical/mental discipline yet playful activity.

from our perspective this program has benefited us greatly and we are happy our kids can now enjoy playing outside :) Thank you to the Smash Gyms Team !!!"

Smash is just 5 minutes away from Rivermark Plaza in Santa Clara!

Smash Gyms – The Home of CCS Wrestlers!

Smash Gyms Head Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Michael Jen promoted some very tough competitors to Blue Belt this week!

Jacob Palomino - US Open Champion

Filip Novachkov - American Cup Champion

Cainan Munsell - American Cup Champion

Stephan Thalin - American Cup Medalist

Isaiah Fernandez- American Cup Champion

 

Smash Gyms is the best place for CCS wrestlers to make a successful and fun transition to BJJ. Many former Bay Area wrestling stand outs have made Smash their home to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and see old friends from the wrestling community. It is a great opportunity for all Smash members to have elite level athletes help them with their wrestling while the Smash BJJ team and instructors help the wrestlers expand their grappling knowledge.


7pm Monday nights at Smash, 4x California State Finalist Jacob Palomino leads our wrestling class! Following Jacob's class, open mat is often full of wrestlers drilling their takedowns.
