    Friends of the Children - Promotions and Celebration

    On March 9th, we traveled to our affiliate program at Friends of the Children at their Rockwood location to help them celebrate the progress that their young athletes have made in their jiu jitsu training. The focus on improving life skills using grappling training has become a mainstay of the FotC program. Coach Dan VanDetta has helped more than 28 of the youth reach their new belt. Thanks to Prof. Tom Oberhue and Coach Sarah Truran for their help in running the event and a big shout out to the FotC mentors for cooking up some mean burgers! It was awesome to see the presence of our Leaders in Training and many of our other main academy youth and adults at the event to support their ....

    Great Times at Five Rings' Grand Re-Opening & 10th Anniversary Event #1
    February 7 - 9 was our first official event to celebrate our new training facility AND our 10 Year Anniversary. What a FUN weekend with guests, gym members, and friends! ! ! Mother Nature tried to play interference and block the events, but we managed to get the main components of the weekend off without a hitch. Professor Jubera and Professor Miller both ran a Five Rings' kids' class - it was so cool to have visiting Professors share cool Jiu Jitsu from their academy's. Then, after that, Professor Korbett ran a 90 minute coaching inservice for our youth coaches. He shared great insights and strategies for ....
