Nolan Takes 1st at Pan Kids!

In his yellow belt debut, Nolan Stuart took 1st pace at the most prestigious kids tournament in the world – the IBJJF Pan Kids. In his division were many athletes from top teams including competitors who had traveled from Brazil! In addition to being part of our kid’s Jiu Jitsu classes, kids competition team and adults classes, Nolan is part of our after school program. He gets a daily study session, music classes and science class.  He plays mellophone and recently earned student of the month honors at Brea Junior High!

The least important thing Nolan has received at Brea Jiu-Jitsu is instruction on specific techniques.  Vastly more important than technical instruction is a careful cultivation of a mentality which the pursuit of excellence is the norm and an atmosphere which fosters a love for the art.  Nolan was one of our first students and he is reaping the reward of all of his hard work and dedication.

Most of our kids choose not to compete, but we have the infrastructure and environment where the kids can excel if they so desire!
