With IBJJF‘s Jiu Jitsu World Championships just taking place last weekend, there are many of the top Jiu Jitsu practitioners from all over the world coming into Southern California to compete. Many of them stay around a little longer to enjoy training at some of the top academies in the area.
Gracie Morumbi, which is located in the Oxnard and Ventura area often gets these kind of visitors. This is mainly due to the highly respected found and head instructor Fabio Leopoldo. As a 3-time world champion, Leopoldo is well known around the world, and has many friends who stop by his three academies located in the Ventura County area.
This past week was no different. Many members from the Ryan Gracie Team showed up to train in Oxnard, Thousand Oaks, and Ventura. Names like Francisco “Pitta” Santana Jr, Talita “Trena” Nogueira, and Mario Yokoyama of Gracie Oceania. There’s always great training to be had at Gracie Morumbi Fabio Leopoldo.
