In August 2015, four Arashido Behring Jiu Jitsu Students from the  Springbank Dojo 

traveled  to Rio De Janeiro with the intention to train where BJJ was born and to compete 

in the World BJJ Championships.

   Trevor Clarke (Purple Belt) and 3 of his students; 

Shanelle Clarke & Brian and Alec Thompson (white belts ) made the long flight to Rio 

to Train with the world famous BJJ master, Mestre Sylvio Berhing at his home Gym in his home town. 

They were there for 2 weeks before the tournament and were joined by 25 other Arashi-Do Behring 

students, building team Canada, the second largest team at the tourney. 

It was a awesome experience, not only to train but see the great city of Rio De Janero and 

allit had to offer. They had a lot of fun both on and off the mats. 


    I am happy to report that at the tournament, out of 1200 competitors and many divisions,

Springbank came home with 2 silvers and 2 bronze medals; a great achievement that they are 

very proud of. They will keep training and perhaps one day make the trip again to try for the gold.
