Spinning off from the charity t-shirt project to celebrate BJJ-ASIA's 5-year anniversary, I had the great fortune of befriending a visitor from the US who's made frequent visits to BKKBJJ. Together we worked on this pendant for his team back home under Prof Carlos Machado. I'm incredibly proud of the work Jimmy has putting forward with the support of his team. Thanks to their efforts, a custom pendant now has a winning bidder and a wonderful donation is now being made to the orphanage in Nongkhai, Thailand.
www.bjjwebsitegurus.com Head instructor at Bangkok BJJ, Ben Weinstein, has just finished our new BKKBJJ site. It has our updated schedule, great photos and super fights we've held at our Sukhumvit Soi 13 location. He's also recently started his own BJJ web-design company BJJWebsiteGurus.com. He and his partner wrote a near 7,000 word marketing e-book, 101 BJJ Gyms Marketing Tips that can be downloaded for FREE. I know he's spent a lot of time on this and has done a great job for my own sites so it'd be great to receive some feedback. Check it out and hope everyone has had an awesome holiday season. also on facebook: www.facebook.com/BJJWebsiteGurus
Over the course of the past couple of years I have not been able to maintain the site with original content or up-to-date postings on tournaments/events. The blog and the community it represents means a great deal to me and I would like to see it continue to be a positive resource and platform for the growing community. That is why I am taking offers for the BJJ-ASIA site, brand and all content. My wish is to find someone who will continue updating the site in the same spirit that I've built it. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Friday, Ralph Go and I will be conducting the BJJ Gi Seminar "BJJ FOR LIFE." We are urging everyone in the Philippine BJJ community to come and support this drive for the victims and survivors of typhoon Yolanda.
All proceeds will go through the Ateneo Disaster Response and Management Team.
To join the seminar and open mat, all you have to do is bring at least one of the following items:
1) 3 cases of bottled water 2) P500 worth of canned goods 3) 10 pieces of clothing 4) at least P500 cash
Of course, you can bring more if you can.
Let us all come together as a community united in doing what needs to be done. Fight apathy. Let us all help out and support those in need. God bless you all. Prof. Ali Sulit
I just want to say I started BJJ at 38 , received my Black belt after 6.5 years training and have competed in just about every major comp in Australia as an adult and at all the major IBJJF comps as a senior in Brazil and the US.
There are alot of guys who discover BJJ later in life , my advice is that no one should ever put limitation on themselves because of age or allow others to do so.
We all walk into the gym as white belts and we all have the potential to exceed our own expectations .
thanks, Stephen ----------------------------------- I first met Stephen in 2006 at one of his events in Manila, I believe some time in April of that year. A key figure in pushing forward the art here in Southeast Asia. It's been a pleasure knowing him and working with him. A big congrats to Prof Kamphuis, parabens! -Luke
