  • Recap from the 2014 Martial Arts Supershow

    We had a great time attending the Martial Arts Supershow in Las Vegas last week. One of the best parts was being able to host seminars that taught participants safe and effective judo techniques.

    We were able to snap a few photos of Olympic medalist Marti Malloy demonstrating moves at our seminar.

    San Jose Jujitsu Tournament

    SAN JOSE -- Abdullah Davis spent four minutes tugging, pulling and struggling with an opponent who was at least a head taller than him. But the smile rarely left his face, even after he lost a close decision.

    "Jiu Jitsu is just in me," said Abdullah, 13, of Fremont, who weighs 77 pounds and trims his hair into a Mohawk. "It's hard not to smile."

    His competitor, Muhammad Elmarouk, who just happened to be his good friend, agreed.

    "We all love this," said Muhammad, also 13, of El Sobrante. "It's just a fun sport."

    The emerging martial art is on display this weekend at San Jose's Independence High School as approximately 900 competitors from the Bay Area and around the country gather for the seventh annual American Cup Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament -- the largest of its kind in Northern California.


  • Shoes off the mat!
