Gracie Barra Dana Point Martial Arts Head Instructors Great Performance at Pan 2012
Professor Flavio Almeida is a well accomplished competitor. Eventhough he now spends most of his time teaching classes at GB Dana Point Jiu-Jitsu and on his leadership position at Gracie Barra Association, he still makes time to train and compete at the highest level.
It has been 4 year though since our Head Instructor competed for the last time here in south California though and a lot of the GB Dana Point students had not yet had a chance to witness him competing.
The excitement was great leading up to the competition. Professor Flavio is famous for his intense style of fighting and taht was definitely showing on his preparation. Our black belt instructor would be all over the place to be able to squeeze a good training routine into his busy schedule.
Prof. Flavio could not have done any better. Using his own words:
“If I came up with a story to tell my daughter how well this tournament went, I would not be able to come up something as exciting as what happened on saturday. Everything went much better than what we have planned for. It was just one of those perfect days of peek performance” – Professor Flavio Almeida
Our head instructor brings back to GB Dana Point the gold medal for 2 of the toughest divisions on the Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championships: heavy Weight and Absolute Open Division.
We look forward to see you back in class.
GB Dana Point Jiu-Jitsu Team
