Smash has another amazing performance at the American Cup!

The 5th Annual American Cup is over and the Smash Jiu-Jitsu team made some noise again! The Smash Gyms Jiu-Jitsu Team brings home 6 Gold, 3 Silver, and 4 Bronze medals!

Amazing performance by all the competitors in a very tough event. Many of our competitors were just promoted to a new belt level in December and still brought home the hardware!

Congrats to the entire team of competitors, training partners and coaches. You made the whole gym proud!

Great job everyone!

 

Christine is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt!!!

On April 5, Smash Gyms Head Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Instructor, Michael Jen, awarded Christine Ho the rank of blue belt. Christine joined Smash Gyms last year upon seeing the dominating performance by our team members at the San Jose BJJ Open Tournament that won us the team trophy for the event. Though Christine had some grappling experience, she opened herself up to learning a completely new system from scratch and began to make phenomenal progress.

Big congratulations to Christine. The promotion is well deserved.┬áChristine is generally very serious during training so it was nice to see her with a huge smile for the rest of class. ­čÖé

Christine helps teach the Smash Gyms Women’s BJJ class on Sundays at 10am!
