Hello Everyone! Just a reminder that the Academy uniform is mandatory for all classes! We do not require students to purchase the Brazil-021 Official Gi, however if you choose to purchase your own Gi, Academy patches must be sewn on the Gi prior to training. Patches are available at the Academy!  Mandatory GI Classes Uniform -Brazil-021 Official GI  -White/Royal Blue Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu GI with the Brazil-021 Official patch sewn on If you are planning on attending any of the No Gi classes, the Academy uniform is required as well. Mandatory No GI Classes Uniform -Brazil-021 Official Rash Guard/Brazil-021 Official Shorts  -Brazil-021 Official Rash Guard/Brazil-021 Official GI Pants We have noticed that many students who attend class have purchased the uniform, but do not wear them to class. If there is any kind of budget issue, please come to us in person so we can discuss how to proceed.  Thank you for the understanding,  Brazil-021 Houston

(By Instructor Derry Samuel) Good afternoon... “Ryan Hickman won his first match by advantage from top position half guard...was passing when time ended. Waiting on final now. Jordan Hockstedler went before I got here and lost both matches but is signed for absolute.” “Ryan Hickman just lost final to some dirty stuff...guy was kicking him under the chin to escape armbar from triangle attempt and hit him twice in the head.” “Jason Ormsby won his first 16-0...takedown to mount to back. Guy made it to closed guard. Jason got flower sweep to mount and finished in mount” (Stay tuned for more updates today) Ryan Hickman got second place at his division and is staying to fight absolute at the end of the day! Congratulations, Ryan! Jason Ormsby takes DOUBLE GOLD! Coach Derry Samuel won’t his first fight on his division by 16x0, and lost in the final by 1 point difference!
