The Smash Gyms Kickboxing has been known as a top notch fitness program. Last Sunday, Nov. 18th, one of the program's students showed that those who wished to advanced their training could also take their skills to a competitive level as Noel Galano competed in the Born to Fight Continuous Sparring Tournament held in Fremont, CA. Noel put on a great show and we look forward to seeing him compete more in the future.
Here are some highlights of Noel's fights.

Training Jiu-Jitsu can be an important tool for self-improvement. You learn really a lot about yourself if you pay attention during training. I believe training BJJ can expose character flaws and really help you improve as a person.
Are you humble or arrogant? Are you a hard worker or lazy? Are you too competitive? Are you a know it all? Do you never give up? Are you consistent or inconsistent? Are you mentally weak or strong? Are you able to keep long lasting relationships? Do you make excuses or do you make it happen?
Train Jiu-Jitsu long enough and you will discover some things about yourself if you are willing to look inward. If you do not play and work well with others it will become apparent in training.
Many have used BJJ to improve myself as a person. If you practice BJJ we would like to encourage you to use what you learn about yourself on the mat to fix problems off the mat. Personality traits get magnified during tough training. You can find out who you are vs who you want to be...
