San Jose Open 2016

San Jose Open 2016

This past weekend was the 2016 San Jose Open. After a very long two days our team came home with first place in both the gi and no gi divisions. This would not have been possible with out the sacrifice of so many people. From the affiliates who flew in early for our annual association camp, to their families who supported and believed in them, to everyone at our Academy. Great job guys! With that said, what made this competition so special wasn’t the medals or trophies we won but how we al...

2016 Europeans

2016 Europeans

Two weeks ago marked the end of the 2016 European open championship. This is the first major of 2016 and I couldn’t be happier with everyones performance. This is the 3rd year I made over for the Europeans and it’s amazing to see the growth of the sport. As a competitor I captured my 3rd European title, but more importantly I got an opportunity to test my spirit. In the final, I hurt my rib early and it really bothered me. At one point I wasn’t so concerned with winning or losing but trying to f...

No Gi Worlds 2015

No Gi Worlds 2015

Going into this years worlds no gi from the outside everything looked the same but for me it was completely different. As we were training I looked at our team and saw in their eyes the same dreams I had when I was younger, to be a champion. This year has been a defining year in my life, I realized that although I like to compete I like coaching more, because I love our team. At no gi worlds after I lost the absolute to a very tough Dj Jackson my thoughts immediately were of my brother, Kim Terr...

US Open 2015

US Open 2015

This past weekend was the 20th edition of the US Open, in Santa Cruz, California. When I started CTA in 2012, I knew I was building something special, in 2013 we won the US Open, came up a little short in 2014 and in 2015 we came home with the adult, overall, and female first place trophies! I’d like to thank everyone who competed from both CTA and Ralph Gracie, everyone who helped the guys get ready and everyone who came out to support. None of this would be possible with out so many peop...

ADCC

ADCC

In the right place, at the right time, surrounded by the right people, I had my date with destiny… and it was far more surreal than I had ever envisioned it to be. I knew going into ADCC, I would be facing the world’s best grapplers. While that is an exciting prospect for a guy with a “take no prisoners” attitude like me, it was also a huge reality check! I knew I would have to commit myself to this more than anything else in my life. The thought of having to drop 23 pounds while training harder...

Santa Cruz Pro 2015

Santa Cruz Pro 2015

This past weekend the CTA team headed to Santa Cruz for the first ever IBJJF Santa Cruz Pro! Unlike open events, pro events offer cash prizes for the top adult, masters and absolute winners so the best in the world typically come to compete. After a long day competing and a complete team effort by athletes, the team took home first place. Notable performances include Paulo Martins closing out with Max Ruderman in weight and taking home gold in the absolute, and Kaniela Kahuanui taking home doubl...

5 Grappling Grand Prix

5 Grappling Grand Prix

This past weekend CTA instructor Professor Yuri Simoes competed in the inaugural Five Grappling Grand Prix. In his first match Professor Yuri fought a very tough and game James Puopolo. Yuri took James down 3 times and this was the decisive factor, as Yuri came away the victor with a final score of 6-2. In his next match Professor Yuri faced former ADCC champion Joao Assis. The match was back and forth and when the timer sounded the match was a draw. After deliberating the referee’s gave t...

All Star Tournament

All Star Tournament

Hard work, dedication and team work was the theme heading into the 2015 World Jiu Jitsu Championships. The team came prepared (huge thanks to Professor Comprido for running camp) and when it was over, no matter their individual outcomes, they never stopped working! The very next day most of the CTA athletes were back in the gym preparing for the next challenge. That challenge came in the form of the 2015 All Star tournament held in Santa Cruz, California. In addition to medals the all star tourn...
