Brentwood BJJ: Battle for the Blue Belt

On November 5th, 2016, Brentwood Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Academy's first ever in-house "Battle for the Blue belt" tournament will be going down.  Using the IBJJF ruleset, this in-house open weight tournament will feature two teams of white belts coached by Coach Miles Kirby and Coach Randall Sanders.  At the end of the team match ups, the team coaches will compete against each other in an additional battle of the coaches!  The only question is...are you Team Miles or Team Randall?!

2016 IBJJF World's Experience

On my way back from California today... Reflecting back on the entire experience at the 2016 IBJJF World Championship.

It's a great sport we are a part of and full of amazing people from everywhere. As a kid I couldn't have imagined my life being this positive and rewarding.

I'd like to thank everyone that's been involved in this journey. My father Jim Akin for giving me the belief in myself and my Professor Luiz Palhares for supporting me along the way even through the hard times. Of course a huge thanks goes to my students and training partners. Even the ones that aren't training anymore. You've all taught me a lot.

The past few years we've built something special together. With this solid foundation we can achieve anything. We took a group of young new blue and white belts. Everyone performed well. So much momentum going into the next season. I hope everyone has enjoyed this process as much as I have

Team Luiz Palhares!!

See what our students are saying

The guys I train with are awesome and keep you on your toes.  Every day of training, you learn something, so the sport is ever-evolving.  It’s a great sport for anyone at any age.
