Marcelo Wins His Third Gold!

We want to congratulate our Sensei Marcelo Pereira on winning his third world championship today at the 2012 Masters and Seniors World Championships in Long Beach, California.

Our teammate Paul Moriarty won his blue belt division as well, which is a major accomplishment for our dojo.

We also would like to congratulate our friend and Marcelo’s Nova Uniao Teammate Robson Moura for also winning his 8th world championship today.  This is an amazing accomplishment and we are very proud!

Both Marcelo and Paul fought today for Nova Uniao, who also won the team championship!  Parabens to Andre Pederneiras and everyone on the team for their hard work and accomplishments.

Hard Training Tonight!

Everyone rolled hard tonight and gave our soon to be departing teammates some challenging Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training in preparation for the upcoming 2012 Masters and Seniors World Championship in Long Beach, California.

Marcelo Pereira has also been working very hard on his training and feels just about fight-ready.  He’s very happy to have made weight two weeks before the tournament.

There was some great sparring tonight.  There’s a lot of good energy in this camp.  Everyone is having fun and training very hard.  Can’t ask for more than that.
