Welcome back to the Road to PANs! This video will give you a glimpse into our youth competition team’s training experience at one of the top 5 Jiu-Jitsu academies in the World, Unity BJJ, with Professor Devohnte and his talented group of students in New Jersey as part of their journey to prepare for IBJJF Kids PAN American Championships.
In July of 2018 Professor Devhonte and his students traveled to our academy to participate in our first joint training effort, “Beasts of the East” Summer Camp (view video here: which was such a rewarding experience for all involved, it was only fitting that we make the trip to New Jersey to visit their academy and share the mats with this talented group once again on our road to PANs…
This was an intense two-day training camp meant to prepare our kids for their upcoming matches at 2019 PAN Kids. Professor Devhonte took the reins on the first day, followed by me, Professor Diego, on the second. We led the group through drills, techniques, and competitive strategies sure to be great assets to these kids as they prepare and battle the tough opponents that surely await them. Every student on the mat left better, stronger and more prepared!
We must thank Unity BJJ NJ, Professor Devhonte, his students, and their parents for being such gracious hosts. As I said when we all came together in July, sharing is the most fundamental act of friendship and our willingness and ability to come together to share our knowledge and help each other improve embodies the values this sport has been built upon.
Another leg of our journey is complete, the finish line is in our sights, but we are not slowing down! Follow and subscribe to see a glimpse our second fundraising effort, Diego Bispo Invitational I, featuring over 30 jiu-jitsu super-fights!
