Why Training In BJJ Is Important & How Will It Pay Back

Why Training In BJJ Is Important & How Will It Pay Back

Never Pay  For Jiu-Jitsu Again!

This might sound incredible but this is true.

The other day we attended a seminar, where a gentleman, very well said that “ A Very Good Year Can Wash Off All The Bad Years” and we too believe that.

Many of us want to learn Jiu-Jitsu, but finding it difficult to pay for its tuition, but why?

There are numerous reasons why we want to begin training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Some find the history of BJJ very interesting and some want to learn BJJ:

For Self Defense:

BJJ has been established to be one of the most successful hands to hand fighting on the planet. It’s a violent solution to defend yourself in a problem with no other answer. So many want to learn it for self-defense purposes.

For Fitness:

Some want to be fit, be in better health & want to be stronger. As BJJ is an engaging, fun & a captivating full body exercise that is why they want to learn it for fitness. It’s warm up, drills & the fighting will literally leave you creeping off the mats at the end of class.  It resembles CrossFit yet with Chokes. Some want to get into shape while learning this life-saving skill.

Learning Something New

Yes, learning something new is scary, but some like martial arts & want to learn something new in it. Learning & training BJJ can keep your brain quick, sharp & young and also helps in building confidence in you.


BJJ allows you to do extremely well in an athletic endeavor. That is why some want to accelerate their Jiu Jitsu so that they can take part in highest level competitions. By competing in BJJ they want to empower themselves so that they can control their life.


Some want to paint their career throughout the martial arts. They want to paint their career as a stunt in the movies, and that is why they are learning different martial arts so that they can provide better services when they are performing.

Jiu Jitsu is not only a sport, it’s a way of life. While not everybody devotes their life to BJJ, for some this is really what makes them pleased. There are ways that you can turn your passion into your career to make a living and support yourself

The Teaching Route:

You can start teaching martial art, BJJ, fitness, and kickboxing classes, giving seminars and private lessons to a sustainable career in BJJ.

Start your own academy

This is one of the most rewarding ways of making a living with BJJ. For this, as an instructor, you require upholding the BJJ values that you have learned all through your experience to give your students the best promising BJJ learning.

Become an instructor

This is the most challenging way to a sustainable career in BJJ. Because it is very difficult to be an acceptable teacher to earn & hold students in the long run.

There are numerous others way like you can turn yourself into the stunt, referee, competition organizer, you could work on the organization, you could be those guys behind the desk for changing the score, you could be those guys who actually put the mats down, start up the match, you could be anything.

These all are the byproduct for the battle minimal for you to make some money when you learn Jiu-Jitsu. This is actually the decision that you can make for living out of there. And not necessarily to let you go the first go they were together.

You need to put some time and effort to learn the battle minimal requirements to make a living and support yourself

This all can pride BJJ when you learn it.

So whenever you say Jiu-Jitsu is expensive, don’t have enough money, find it little too hard or too complicated paying for its tuition these all implies that you are making enough efforts to pay for it. Now you can find many- many ways to get the money to pay for your tuitions.

To achieve your goal you have to work a little hard which is the true sense of the martial arts.

So, it’s better for you to expose yourself as a person of hard work and not feeling that martial art is cheaper for you so that you can purchase it.That the sense of life that we want for our students.

So whenever you start receiving money from Jiu-Jitsu, it is the actual money that you invested in Jiu-Jitsu. It will come back to you if you start teaching or working related to Jiu-Jitsu. BJJ will repay for your time & effort spent someday.

So think about it, think about your children and go for it.

Fund Raising to Sponsor Richar Nogueria

Fund Raising to Sponsor Richar Nogueira


As you all know, Sampa BJJ Academy had sponsored Mr. Richar Nogueria to compete at Pan American Jiu-Jitsu tournament of 2017. And at Sampa BJJ, we had given him training for this tournament and paid for all of his expenses. But unfortunately, he lost at the tournament and didn’t get the result that he wanted. His defeat does not diminish the way our Sampa BJJ students think about him and the way the people look up to him for his hard work and the way he trains.

At Sampa, he was not only training over here but was also helping us out in our classes and camps. He is a very nice and humble guy with a great attitude. Richar was really a great addition to our Sampa BJJ school. He had given our Sampa students an additional edge on competition oriented Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu sport.  He taught many of his great techniques to our students.

And we are hoping that Mr. Richar will be a great, full time, addition to the Sampa BJJ Academy in the future.

Mr. Richar is back in Brazil and now training for the Brazilian Nationals, which should be at the end of this month. And we are trying to get Mr. Richar back here to Sampa in the middle or end of may. So that our students can train with him. We want to sponsor him back again in upcoming competitions. But this time we don’t have too many funds available to sponsor him and thus need the help of our Sampa student to raise the fund for his sponsorship.

To raise fund for his sponsorship, we are doing some seminars. In these seminars, we will be having him teach a class so that students can donate something.  We want him to stay here for a longer time at least three months so that our BJJ students can benefit from his hard work ethics and not only that learn his competition oriented techniques.

We are also launching a GoFundme campaign to raise funds to sponsor him to get back here.  It is very simple anyone can go online and donate something. We are making every effort to bring him back to our Sampa BJJ Academy. We are hoping that people will help us in raising funds for him to bring him back.

Richar is coming back anyways and even if we do not reach the amount of money to get him here, Sampa BJJ will cover the remaining.

If you are interested in donating please call 626-335-4971 so we can send you the link online to donate.

Flavio Canto in Ribeirao Preto

Flavio Canto in Ribeirao Preto

We have a great news about our representatives of Sampa Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Brazil being at Flavio Canto’s workshop in Ribeirao Preto, Brazil. Our teachers got a chance to meet this great judo player as well an amazing BJJ knowledge. Flavio Canto is a Brazilian male Judoka and BJJ black belt.

Flavio Canto is a Brazilian male Judoka and BJJ black belt. In 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, he won the bronze medal. He has also won 3 medals at the Pan American Games. Flavio was one of the world class ground game fighters in the judo community.

Also, Flavio Canto is perhaps one of the fascinating Judo athletes to look at. He’s also known for employing BJJ submissions and techniques into Judo. He is not only a great personality but a humble person who has helped many poor people in Brazil. He teaches them how to become better, get out of the crime and give these underprivileged kids an opportunity to live trough the “Instituto Reacao”.

Flavio Canto is the one who has started a social project which is called Instituto Reação in the ghettos of Rio de Janeiro. It is an amazing project that is transforming poor and neglected kids into judo black belts through games and training. In this Instituto Reação, Flavio Canto focuses on humility, discipline, determination and courage through judo.

Rafaela Silva, Brazilian judoka from Instituto Reacao became Olympic champion last year 2016 in Rio 2016 Olympics. He is not only a great Judoka, but he is also one of the best Jiu-Jitsu guys around. He went into Ribeirao Preto where all our Sampa instructors went to learn and get the opportunity to be side-wise-side on the mat with this living legend. There he talked about his social projects and hosted a clinic of BJJ and Judo.

We were very happy to see from United States Bleacher our Sampa Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu representatives. It was not only about judo, but Jiu-Jitsu and martial arts as well.

Call us at 626-335-4971. We serve the communities of Glendora, Azusa, Covina, La Verne, and San Dimas, California.

Pali Retreat – BJJ Intensive Camp

Pali Retreat – BJJ Intensive Camp

Our first BJJ Intensive Camp in the USA was held in Lake Arrowhead from March 31st to April 2nd and it was a great hit. With a Brown Belt & 3 black belts teaching, Prof. Renato Migliaccio, Prof. Martin Guggi, Prof. Nathan Basseto & Coach Richar. Most attendees participated in this camp where from Sampa BJJ Academy & we also have one student from Temecula.

This BJJ intensive camp was great & we have learned a lot in this camp. We had our accommodation at in the San Bernardino Mountains. They offer us with lots of perks in the facility.

Our team members stayed in Pali retreat cabins which were shared with 3 other camp buddies. The cabins were a perfect escape from the city life. There was an option for the people that don’t want to share rooms with other men or women to be in private rooms. Besides all these facilities their food was great, they have offered us all types of food including vegetarian & vegan. Everyone there was really happy with what they were offering.

On  Friday (31st March), we reached there & after dinner, we started our training on that same night with some Ginastica Natural, which is an amazing Brazilian method of movement for training BJJ without a partner to work on strength & coordination. For this, we had our Prof. Martin Guggi with us, he taught his high-level Ginastica Natural techniques to the students. Martin has a master’s  degree in physical education & he is a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Prof. Renato Migliaccio, Prof. Martin is teaching greatly & motivating the students in Austria. He is also first high level certified Ginastica Natural Instructor in Austria.

After the Ginastica Natural, we opened a session for some Question/Answer, so people could give an idea of what they want to learn at this camp. Then we answered their questions. And after Question/Answer session we got with some guidelines on what to teach in the following days of the camp.

After that, we did a little sparring session & ended up Friday night training session with that. Then we got back to living room, the room was really very nice with fireplace we hang out there & talk a little bit about the upcoming sessions for a while.

And on Saturday morning, we woke up early, had an amazing breakfast, a little break & get straight to our first session of Ginastica Natural warm-up in the morning. Then we had some Judo, Wrestling & BJJ training. After that, our Coach Richar taught some sweeps & the fundamentals of the Lasso Guard techniques. Then we ended up the session with some Lasso guard resistance training. We got an excellent overview of possible choices in this open Lasso guard variation.

Then we took a break to have lunch & have some rest. And at night, we grouped back before dinner for another session. Where we had another Ginastica Natural warms up & take down session taught by prof. Renato Migliaccio

After these sessions, Prof Martin showed some of his favorite techniques & students got an opportunity to learn from him. We then ended the class with some Question/Answer session followed by some sparring session, which was a little longer this time.

Then after the tough training session, we went out to the Lake Arrowhead village, the city on the lake to have some time together but outside of the mat. It was amazing to have some social activities & to know each other more. We sat together there at a pizza parlor, had a cup of coffee some had some beers and talk about BJJ & other things. Then we went back to our place because the next day we had a longer training session.

On Sunday morning, we again woke up early & had breakfast. And after that, we started our classes with another training session of Ginastica Natural. Then we started with the last takedown session followed up with an MMA sequence and a catch wrestling sequence. After that, we open another Q/A session. The funny part about this Q/A unit was that students & people over there comes up with lots & lots of questions that we have answered one by one.  Then our training session came to an end & we finish this training session with the Berimbolo (a BJJ technique)

We then quickly roll the mats, packed them up & were all set to get back home. The students really had a blast in this intensive camp. We are very thankful & happy for the facilities that Pali Retreat has offered us. This time in our camp, we have two vegan athletes with us. They too have got everything for their special needs. They had a blast they said the food was really amazing.

It was really an outstanding camp with great coaches, great atmosphere & a matchless price. We are now looking forward to hosting an another camp in California soon.

Please call us at 626-335-4791.

Sampa BJJ at the 2017 IBJJF Pan American Jiu-Jitsu Championship

Sampa BJJ at the 2017 IBJJF Pan American Jiu-Jitsu Championship

Congratulations to all the Sampa students and a sponsored athlete that competed in the IBJJF Pan American Tournament. Congrats as well to John Haynes for his second place! The students fought very hard and bravely. And despite the results, they still represented our school and team very well. This 2017 at the IBJJF Pan American Jiu Jitsu Tournament, four of our students and one sponsored athlete have participated from Sampa. The competition level was very high and unfortunately, just one student “John” was able to get the second place in the blue belt master. We were very happy with his hardcore, high-level training that helped him to achieve his tournament goal.

We had other students that also deserved to the place. Unfortunately, they could not make it this time because of the high level of the competition. Anyway, it is the beauty of the sport! In a given day, many athletes have the chance to be the winner. Like our own student, David who was the Pan American Champion last year and this time could not get a place. Our sponsored athlete Richar Nogueria is a great athlete and is helping us all to guide our students to the highest standards. He was second place in the IBJJF World Championship 2016.

But there are no favorites at such high level. This year at the Pan American he had lost before getting any place. We saw many good matches all day long during the 4 days of the tournament. As usual, the tournament was not short on big upsets and exciting matches. We also had a representative from Sampa Quebec, Jean, who has also competed at the purple belt level. And because of a mere mistake, she lost one match before getting third place or before getting into the semi-finals.

After that, we had our first debuting in the Pan American Tournament. Kris competed at the white belt level and got a really hard match at the first round. We saw many matches and we’re very impressed with the level of Jiu-Jitsu has taken as a sport moving awa a bit from the martial arts/self-defense aspect. In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, many people play different roles, techniques, and strategies like any other sport. We are very happy to see the evolution of Jiu-Jitsu and the many styles people play or use to fight or perform. Lastly, we would like to thank all the students who have participated in the 2017 IBJJ Pan American Jiu-Jitsu Championship.

Erinnerungen an das II. BJJ Intensive Camp (Halloween Camp)

Unsere Leidenschaft Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) lebt vom Austausch mit Gleichgesinnten. Wer diese Kunst trainiert weiß, dass es mehrere Elemente gibt, um sein Können zu verfeinern. Man fängt an Techniken zu erlernen und diese dann im Anschluss zu verbinden. Mit der Zeit ergeben auf einmal einzelne Puzzleteile Sinn und man bekommt ein tieferes Verständnis für diese Kunst. Auch wenn der Aspekt der Selbstverteidigung anfangs im Vordergrund steht weicht er vielfach bald dem sportlichen Aspekt. Wer den Vergleich im Wettkampf sucht, will mehr als nur die Kampfkunst verstehen. Er will diese anwenden und beginnt damit die bereits erlernten Kombinationen immer und immer wieder zu wiederholen um sie dadurch zu perfektionieren – auch Drillen genannt. Dieses Drillen verbunden mit dem Sparring nimmt auf einmal mehr Zeit in Anspruch, als nur das Erlernen neuer Techniken. Trotzdem bleibt man immer wachsam und hat ein Auge darauf, welche Techniken andere Athleten erfolgreich anwenden. Obwohl wir fürs Drillen nur einen Partner benötigen, ist der Austausch mit anderen äußerst wichtig. Man will überprüfen, ob seine Techniken nicht nur gegen bekannte Trainingspartner erfolgreich eingesetzt werden können, sondern auch gegen völlig fremde.

Bereits in meinem Auslandsjahr bei Prof. Renato Migliaccio in Kalifornien 2011/2012 haben wir uns intensiv über den Prozess des Wachstums im BJJ unterhalten. Nicht nur die Gespräche mit meinen Haupttrainingspartnern Mario Hudelist, Christopher Plesser und Samuel Zagorski sondern auch die zahlreichen Trainings- und Drilleinheiten auf den Matten haben in mir den Wunsch keimen lassen, dass auch wir in Europa, in Österreich mehr Impulse und Möglichkeiten brauchen um uns weiterzuentwickeln und auszutauschen.

Die Möglichkeit ins Ausland zu gehen ist nach wie vor eine super Alternative, neue Erfahrungen und Impulse zu bekommen.  Aus persönlicher Erfahrung weiß ich, dass Reisen in die USA oder Brasilien über eine längere Zeit mit sehr großen finanziellen Ausgaben verbunden sind. Geld ist jedoch nicht der einzige Punkt, den es zu bewältigen gilt – vielleicht sogar noch der am leichtesten zu bewältigende… Beruflich ist es meist schwieriger mit seinem Arbeitgeber, Partner oder der Familie eine Möglichkeit zu finden ins Ausland gehen zu können, ohne das oder die Zurückgelassenen zu vernachlässigen. Die Erfahrung des BJJ Trainings abseits der eigenen Schule ist trotzdem eine der wichtigsten Bereicherungen, um sein eigenes Training zu hinterfragen, nicht in einer Routine zu versinken und weiter sich weiter zu entwickeln.

Da das BJJ Niveau in Europa sehr stark wächst, steigt auch die Zahl hervorragender Schulen, Trainer und Trainingspartner. Und erst im Vergleich mit anderen Schulen im In- und im Ausland wird man feststellen, wie wertvoll die Zeit in der eigenen Akademie war und ist. Hier geht es nicht nur ums Training, sondern auch um Ausgleich, Gemeinschaft und Freundschaft. Dinge, die aber ebenfalls sehr viel Zeit brauchen und wir nur schwer bei einem Auslandsaufenthalt entwickeln können.

Als Leiter einer BJJ Schule bin ich aber stets bestrebt nicht nur für mich selbst, sondern auch für meine Schüler Möglichkeiten zu finden, um sich weiter zu entwickeln. So kamen Prof. Renato und ich zur Idee, ein mehrtägiges Camp zu veranstalten. Das Zusammentreffen vieler Gleichgesinnter schafft eine Möglichkeit für Training, Austausch und Gemeinschaft.

Im April 2014 starteten wir mit unserem I. BJJ intensiv Trainingscamp in Klagenfurt. Aufgrund terminlicher Kollisionen konnte Prof. Renato nicht dabei sein und so veranstalteten wir das Camp alleine. Coach Mario Hudelist, der das Training in unserer Partnerschule City Thong in Wien leitet, unser Judo Coach Wolfgang Michor, Christopher Plesser und ich unterrichteten 3 Tage lang. Die Teilnahme von ca. 30 BJJ Begeisterten aus Deutschland und Österreich war für mich die Bestätigung, dass dieses Angebot auf große Nachfrage stößt. Offensichtlich sahen auch andere den Vorteil, sich bei einem Camp mit anderen außerhalb der eigenen Schule auszutauschen, beim Sparring sein Können zu hinterfragen und neue Impulse fürs Training daheim zu bekommen.

Aus dem dadurch gewonnen Feedback des I. BJJ intensiv Camps war ich umso motivierter, mit dieser Campidee weiter zu machen und kommende Camps noch besser zu veranstalten. Das Feedback der Teilnehmer machte uns aufmerksam, dass es gut wäre die Kurse in Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene zu unterteilen, und dass vielen Wettkämpfern die Zeit fürs Sparring sehr wichtig ist und dafür muss genügend Zeit eingeplant werden…

Und so begann bald darauf die Planung des II. BJJ intensiv Camps/Halloweencamp. Wenn man etwas ins Rollen bringt, kommen sehr oft viele Zufälle zusammen…. So war nicht nur Prof. Renato mit an Bord, sondern es kamen auch viele seiner sowie befreundeter Schwarzgurte aus Deutschland (Prof. Hans Hutton, Prof. Dominik und Prof. Franjo Artukovic), aus England (Prof. Neil White) aus New Jersey (Prof. Bill Loftus), aus der Schweiz (Prof. Marius Maissen), aus Brasilien (Prof. Nathan Basseto) sowie externe Black Belts wie Prof. Carlos Maia aus Slowenien. Äußerst erfreut war ich, dass auch mein bewährtes Team vom I. BJJ intensiv Camp wieder mit dabei war – Coach Mario Hudelist und Coach Wolfgang Michor!!!

Dieses II. BJJ intensiv Camp/Halloweencamp fand mit ca. 60 Teilnehmern und 15 Instruktoren von 28. bis 31. Oktober 2016 ebenfalls in Klagenfurt statt. Für mich war dieses Camp wiederum ein erfolgreicher Schritt in die richtige Richtung, doch gab es immer noch Punkte mit denen ich nach wie vor nicht ganz zufrieden war.

Die Atmosphäre unter den Teilnehmern war äußerst positiv, das technische Niveau von so vielen erfahrenen und hochqualifizierten Instruktoren gab die Möglichkeit für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene individuelle Fortschritte zu machen. Besonders erfreut war ich, dass in dieser freundschaftlichen Atmosphäre die Teilnehmer ohne Scheu auch die Instruktoren zum Rollen auffordern konnten. Da wir der Meinung sind, dass Grappler ein Grundverständnis im Schlagen und Treten haben sollte, wollten wir auch Instruktoren von anderen Kampfsportarten einladen. So konnten wir den mehrfachen Weltmeister im Kickboxen „Sir“ Bernie Sussitz gewinnen. Abgerundet wurde das Programm auch mit Capoeira und Ginastica Natural.

Ein Punkt auf der „das-nächste-Mal-besser-machen-Liste“ ist sicherlich, die Trainingsstätte von der Unterkunft nicht örtlich zu trennen. Dafür konnte das Mittagessen gemeinsam vor Ort eingenommen werden. Da ich fest davon überzeugt bin, dass auch die Gemeinschaft und die Zeit abseits des Trainings für den Austausch enorm wichtig sind, war dies der vorrangige Punkt, der für die Zukunft verbessert werden musste!!!

So machte ich mich nach dem Auswerten der Feedbacks wiederum daran, das nächste BJJ Camp zu planen. Vieles sollte vom II. BJJ intensiv Camp beibehalten werden. Es soll wieder ein Angebot geben, wo sowohl Anfänger, Fortgeschrittene aber auch Schwarzgurte voneinander lernen und sich austauschen können. Sowohl Wettkampfinteressierte als auch die Hobbyathleten und Leute die an der Selbstverteidigung interessiert sind sollten auf ihre Kosten kommen.  Die Trainingszeit am Tag sollte mit ca. 6h genug sein, damit auch noch immer Zeit bleibt sich abseits der Matte oder persönlich mit Instruktoren über individuelle BJJ-Fragen auszutauschen. Aber wir mussten einen Ort finden an dem das Training, die Unterbringung und Verpflegung ohne lästiges Hin- und Herfahren möglich ist.

Schließlich wurden wir fündig. Das III. BJJ intensiv Camp wird von 25. bis 28. Mai 2017 in Lignano/Italien stattfinden in einer Unterbringung direkt am Strand der adriatischen Küste mit einer großzügigen Trainingshalle. Im Mai sind die Temperarturen in Italien schon sehr angenehm. An schönen Tagen wird sicherlich auch das Meer für manche einladend sein. Lignano liegt ca. 2,5h von Klagenfurt entfernt und nur 40 min von Venedig. Somit können internationale Gäste den Flughafen Venedig anfliegen und mit einer Sightseeingtour verbinden.

Da Prof. Renato Migliaccio und ich die Hauptverantwortlichen für dieses Camp sind wollen wir, dass unsere Camps für jeden zugänglich sind, der sich im BJJ verbessern und eine gute Zeit mit anderen BJJ-Nerds verbringen möchte, unabhängig von Team oder jeglicher Team-Politik. Allein das Training und der Spaß, den es macht Zeit mit seinen Freunden, alten und neuen Trainingskollegen und seinem bevorzugten Hobby zu machen sollen im Fokus unserer Camps stehen! Alle die sich angesprochen fühlen werden bei uns immer Willkommen sein!!!
