The San Jose Buddhist Judo Invitational Tournament is the largest judo competition in the Bay Area. Held at the San Jose State University Event Center, this competition attracts top competitors from clubs all throughout California. Smash Gyms Kids Martial Arts Program student Aaron Jen competed in a very tough pool that combined yellow and orange belts. Aaron put in a great effort, especially against the opponents of higher rank, and placed 3rd. Great job on some very hard fought matches!
On an interesting side note, over 12 years ago, Aaron’s father and Smash Gyms’ head Brazilian Jiu-jitsu instructor, Michael Jen, competed and medaled in this same event.
