Mestre Sylvio da Matta Behring's annual fall visit to Calgary and Edmonton to teach, grade, and share his vast Jiu Jitsu knowledge was a smashing success!
A tournament can be fun, competitive, and affirm your skills and development as a martial artist. The Samurai Sword Series 4, Calgary, was definitely fun, competitive, and affirming!! The fourth in a five part series of tournaments for our Calgary and Cochrane locations, this tournament was a special challenge as there were so many students who were brand new and had never participated in a tournament. Every one of the competitors was an example of good sportsmanship, courage, and skill development across the martial arts continuum.
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.
In 2010, GSS (General Social Survey) conducted a research survey asking Canadians across the age, gender, income, and nationality spectrum when and what sports they actively participated in. This survey and the conclusions drawn from the results are not so much startling as they are a guide to helping understand what is happening and may suggest ways to see an increase in participation. The single most telling result showed decreased sport participation across all age groups (pg 14).
Check out all the fun and trial, tribulations and fantastic training for our 27 members team in Rio de Janeiro for the inaugural CBJJD Tournament!
There's nothing like putting in a day of work and then going to the local martial arts dojo and working out all of that physical stress on the mats!
