PHOTOS: Jiu Jitsu At The Beach (4-23-17)

There's a lot to love about living in southern California as a grappler.  The number of high profile practitioners.  The relative ease it is to travel from gym to gym.  And, of course, the beautiful So Cal weather.  

One of the things we truly enjoy is being able to put together events like this that bring the community together.  No politics.  No egos.  Just a day of rolling alongside the beautiful California beach.  What you see here is just a small look at the people who make this community so great.

The event, presented by the LA Jiu Jitsu Club, was a six hour open mat and potluck — featuring a number of different academies throughout the greater Los Angeles area.  

Check out the full res photos below, all taken by our very own Octavio Villanueva.

If you happen to use any of these photos, please be sure to give OV Films credit on your social media.  You can see more of Octavio's work right HERE.  Also, the best way to support Octavio is to purchase some of these great photos off of his smug mug.  You can do that right HERE.

If you like who we are and what we're about, we'll hope you'll compete at one of our two upcoming tournaments.  You can register for the OC Open (May 28th) and the Fresno Open (June 4th) RIGHT HERE
