JIU-JITSU World League August 25th Results! Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, Lompoc, and Ventura

Lots of medals returning to Paragon proving the hard work that is put into the mats but more importantly the experience and lesson taken from this tournament. It sure was an aggressive tournament with great talents that we all appreciate. Our students are committed to win and prepared to loose when the case comes but hard work is always there. Big Thank You to our coaches for being the support the students need, without you guys our schools could not have done this fantastic fights. Great Weekend and more tournaments to come…
