For the 4th year in a row Team Yemaso returns to Sacramento, CA. with a team title from the prestigious IBJJF events! Lead Professors Eliot Kelly and Marcos Torregrosa spearheaded the movement and led by example, both achieving top honors in their efforts yet, most impressively, it was the efforts of the team that saw this come to fruition. We are extremely proud of the work and dedication that has been put in to get to this point and from here we can only get better. We witnessed the unity of the competitors, their families, recreational practitioners, and the whole community this weekend and to see them all join in good times truly gives meaning to us professors. Thank you to all that coached, you all ran to each mat to help as much as possible. Thank you to those that supported, even if it was just a smile in the corner when needed.. Thank you everyone who continually makes Team Yemaso what we are: a hard working, ever improving family. These are the fruits of our labors. Review and reflect. Osu @edhjiujitsu @eliotkelly
Yemaso Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy is the most successful BJJ school in the Sacramento area. Sacramento BJJ Instructor & 3 Time World champion Marcos “Yemaso” Torregrosa leads the academy’s instruction teaching classes for recreational BJJ practitioners as well as BJJ champion athletes.
Yemaso BJJ started with Marcos himself when he realized the importance of hard work coupled with battle tested techniques. As he began teaching all over Sacramento, Woodland, & Cashe Creek, he began building a following of loyal students who have the same goal he has had for himself: to realize their full potential. Marcos realized the importance of having his own academy versus teaching at academies owned nearby, so in August of 2011 he finally opened his own school. Now with his own school, he is free to unleash the potential in all of his students and take them as far as they want to go in BJJ. Take his invitation to train with him.
Each student decides how seriously they will take BJJ, and everyone is held accountable for their goals. It is important to note that even for your avid recreational BJJ practitioner who only wants to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and get in shape, Yemaso BJJ is the best academy to train at, because you will have the chance to train with not just one champion in Marcos “Yemaso” Torregrosa, but various champions of the Yemaso BJJ competition team.
The Yemaso BJJ competition team is by far the most successful team in the Sacramento region being the first and only team to ever bring back an IBJJF team title with various champion athletes any several: age, belt, and weight divisions. We have champions at the white, blue, purple, brown, and black belt as well as champions at the kids, juvenile, adult, masters, and seniors divisions. Lastly, we have champions from the lightest weight divisions to the heaviest weight divisions. The merit of our hard work is the success we put forth consistently and frequently. Marcos “Yemaso” Torregrosa is currently ranked 1st in the World. There are no other BJJ academies in Sacramento that can rival that type of success in the past or the present.
Our vision is to help all students do their personal best given the circumstances they are in, create a bond with all of our students, help everyone stay healthy with jiu-jitsu exercise, and create a strong successful BJJ competition team.
