Guys, please watch this video. This is in reference to the new "Knockout Game" that is causing great harm to innocent civilians around New York and New Jersey. This game is also spreading to other states and areas so please be aware.
On November 15, VSBJJA student Sergio Da Silva will be making his Bellator debut. Sergio has been training for several years under Vitor Shaolin and Marcos Loro, and has been training MMA with Long Island MMA to prepare for this fight. He will be fighting at 135 on the preliminay card.
On the same date, VSBJJA instructor Marcos Loro is making his return to New Jersey to fight in Bellator. Loro is coming off a TKO victory in Brazil, and we are very happy that he is fighting in New Jersey again so that we can come support him. The fights will be at Revel in Atlantic City.
To view Loro's biography and highlight, check out:
This is a classic fight with a lot of beautiful transitions and positions happening. On Friday, 6.14.13, Vitor Shaolin himself will be telling everyone about what happened within this fight along with the positions and the strategies that made this match what it was.
The third Big Apple BJJ Open was a huge success. Vitor Shaolin BJJ (VSBJJA) was able to take home the first place team award. It would not be possible without the team work of everyone involved.
These are the following people who helped the academy take home this award. A big thank you goes out to you for coming out to fight hard, win or lose. To those who did not take home a medal, thank you for coming to fight as well and let's come back to training stronger then ever and fix that for the next Big Apple BJJ Open!
Also, thank you very much to the rest of the teams, including the association members (Omni, Bronx BJJ and Long Island MMA) who came through very strong and competed under their own banner. Their members are not listed here, but many did exceptional. Look out for the official results on the website, www.BigAppleBJJOpen.com, soon.
Vitor Shaolin flew out to Ohio to do a seminar for Jorge Gurgel. The seminar was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who came, including association members Dave Tester and his students who came to show support.
