Bryan Barberena wins at KOTC

This last weekend at the Talking Stick resort in Scottsdale, Bryan Barberena ran his impressive record to 9-1 with a win at KOTC Radar Lock.

Bryan has been a member of the Lab Elite for almost a year, and is on a five fight win streak with all of his victories being finishes. The future looks bright for this young man as he continues to better himself and climb the ladder in his career. Congratulations Bryan!

Happy Holidays to All

We recorded our 12 Days of Christmas video a couple of years ago, but it is still good fun to watch!  Time has flown by and now many of these guys have been promoted to their next belt.  Ben has his black belt now and Jason Witkowski, Chris Zubrycki, Joe Gemma, Tyler Rolland and Luis Ordonez have all been promoted to brown belt.  My favorite part is that we are all training together still and improving every day.  Thanks for all the support and we hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!!


JCBJJ Technique of the Month: December 2013

Newly promoted Brown Belt Luis Ordonez shows us one of his cool tricks to help stop that pesky Wilson Reis pass.  Luis is a mainstay at the Lab, and helps with everything from the Elite fight team to teaching classes, and we are very grateful to have him around.  Hope you guys enjoy this taste of Lu-Jitsu!

 


Two New JCBJJ/MMA LAB Brown Belts

Today, at the MMA LAB, two very deserving young men were promoted to Brown Belt.  Tyler Rolland and Luis Ordonez have been long time members at the LAB, and are part of the fabric of our team.

Both guys have  been a great help to us through the years, training with our Elite Team,  traveling with fighters, and teaching classes.  They are always ready to help do whatever needs to be done to help the team, and they are, pure and simple, monsters on the mat.

Thank you to both Tyler and Luis, our family would not be what it is without your love for the sport, and your dedication to the team….Congratulations!

Jordan Johnson Wins Gold at No-Gi Worlds

Jordan Johnson went to Long Beach, CA last weekend to compete in the No-Gi World Championships and came home with the Gold medal!  Jordan, an undefeated MMA fighter and Lab Elite member,  is an excellent grappler, and  was very impressive as he steam rolled through his bracket.  Jordan has become part of what makes our team at the Lab tick, and we are so happy that he had such a fantastic performance.  Way to go Jordan, excited for the future!
