this picture describes Saturday’s competition, completely. Caring, support and friendship was felt by all! On Saturday, April 22nd 2017 the first ever IJEF Benefit Tournament was held at Pacific Top Team, Corona hosted by Jiu Jitsu Connection and many supportive academies in Southern California.
Almost 100 competitors came together to compete in this milestone of an event. There were kids of all ages and adults as well competing for a great cause in an effort to support children in South America and around the world to help provide uniforms and Jiu Jitsu to these impoverished communities. Several academies participated including Vilanova Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Camarillo, Level Up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu West Los Angeles, Inner Strength Martial Arts Santa Maria, All American Jiu Jitsu Academy, and others. Jiu Jitsu Connection is a movement of friendly schools getting together to promote Jiu Jitsu, friendship, and helping others in a positive environment and for positive causes such as supporting the International Jiu Jitsu Education Fund. We’d like to thank everyone for participating and we appreciate you so much! Your support means everything!!??

Jiu Jitsu Connection

Come to the Jiu Jitsu Connection IJEF Benefit Tournament, Saturday April 22nd!

This weekend’s Jiu Jitsu Connection IJEF Benefit Tournament will be the first in-house tournament held by Jiu Jitsu Connection — we are so excited to have the support of this California-based Jiu Jitsu association. Jiu Jitsu Connection is an association of friendly academies that get together for training, exchange, and support. They’ve been highly involved with a number of charitable organizations, raising funds for breast cancer awareness, important surgeries for members of associated academies, and now IJEF kids! Originating with Level Up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in West Los Angeles, Pacific Top Team in Corona, and Vilanova Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Camarillo, Jiu Jitsu Connection has grown to several other academies and has become a great movement of Jiu Jitsu friendship.

Thank you Jiu Jitsu Connection for your support of the International Jiu Jitsu Education Fund! If you’re interested in participating in the Benenfit Tournament, check the Facebook event or contact Pacific Top Team in Corona, California, the host of the tournament.
