Another 2016 IBJJF Worlds Masters Champion! Brentwood Brazilian Jiu-jitsu's Kent Russell won the gold in both his weight division and the open weight at the 2016 IBJJF Worlds Masters tournament. Kent fought hard and executed his game well. Congrats Kent!
Brentwood Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy's Stan Mabry has done it again! Stan, 60 year old owner of Stanford Fine Art and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competitor, has won his brown belt division at the IBJJF Worlds Masters Tournament. Stan has won the Worlds Masters Tournament at the blue, purple, and now brown belt ranks! In addition, Stan left each belt rank as the number 1 ranked competitor in each of his divisions! Last, but certainly not least, with this latest victory Stan was promoted by Professor Akin to the rank of black belt on the winner's podium! Congratulations Stan on this incredible achievement!
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?!

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!!
