With the Holidays just around the corner many of the BJJ instructors are away visiting their families and the academies closed. In Chicago, however just prior to the Holiday hiatus, 2 times World Absolute champion Rodrigo "Comprido" Medeiros had his "Jiu-Jitmas" party for the academies kids. The party was super fun with students participating in games and more and everyone had a lot of fun.
"Comprido" was super happy with the turnout and the event: "We've accomplished a lot during my first year at the new academy we have accomplished a lot, but in the end, especially for the kids, it is important to give thanks to them and let everyone have fun."
