IBJJF Orlando Summer Open

Diêgo Bispo, our black belt at ARES BJJ, won two medals at the IBJJF Orlando Summer Open on 8/2/2019. He also runs an amazing kids program and left the message below:

'What is more important than my medals is being able to compete alongside my kids and inspire then. They did a great job. We had 13 kids competing, 9 got gold medals 🥇and 2 got bronze medals🥉. Success isn't just about what you accomplish in your life, it’s about what you inspire others to do.

Thank you to all my Ares and DBA Families and friends for all the support.'

San Jose Open a HUGE Success

It's a wrap! The 2017 IBJJF San Jose Summer Open is over and our team got 2nd place overall. It's was a great result considering we were outnumbered by many athletes but that's not the most important thing, what really matters is the sense of family everyone in the team had during this tournament because that's what we are about. Trophies will come and go, medals will be lost, family will always be there! Thank you all for being our family, thank you all for being Ares BJJ! 

Up next, Atlanta Open Sept 23/24



We'd like to take this opportunity to "officially" welcome Prof. Kenny Kim, students and affiliates to the Ares family. He has always been part of the team and friend but now we are very excited to have him on board. Everyday our association/team/family is growing in a positive direction. He runs a very successful gym in the suburbs of Atlanta,Ga and will be helping with some of the duties of the association. As we officially welcome Prof. Kenny he was awarded his 2nd degree on his black belt by Profs. Samir and Quexinho. Lastly, Prof. Kenny awarded one of his long time friend and training partner Brien Calloway to black belt! We now had added another Ares BJJ black belt to the roster. If you guys are ever in the eastcoast make sure to stop by and get on the mat!

U.S. Open Champions

In its 21st year, one of the most prestigious tournaments in the US came back to Santa Cruz, California and Ares BJJ/Soul Fighters was here to represent. With over 70 adults fighting we took home 3 first place trophies: Kids, Adult Male and Adult Female and two more trophies in third place with Team Overall and the Masters Division as well. Our young team has been hard at work this year competing in as many tournaments as we could and the US Open was no different; we had competitors from Ares Rocklin, Ares Modesto, and Milton Bastos BJJ. We area all so diverse in our lives and where we are with our BJJ journeys but that doesn't stop us in our mission and goals. Some of us are young full time competitors, others are middle school students figuring out their way through life while still keeping their eyes on the prize; and many of us are parents ourselves- juggling 40 hours of work, raising kids and trying to become champions- one win at a time. We are so proud of everyone and all their hard work.
