Team Yemaso promoted three martial artists to the rank of black belt. Although every martial artist’s journey is truly unique, it is generally accepted to expect ten years to achieve the highest ranking in the martial art of BJJ.
Our Sacramento Martial Arts Academy has grown a lot. Last Saturday, December 5th we celebrated the realization of hard work in the form of belt promotions. People often ask, what the difference between Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and other martial arts is. Well, one of the most readily available differences to note is how, generally speaking, difficult it is to attain rank in BJJ. But, on the bright side, it’s what makes getting promoted in BJJ feel like such an accomplishment each time. To say it’s rewarding, is an understatement. The majority of members have stated that they place it right up there with the top experiences of their lives. People who have become doctors, lawyers, professors, etc. will rank something they do for recreation as one of the most significant things they’ve done with their lives. We make an earnest effort to be supportive of one another here and help each other grow through the ranks until the final goal of becoming a black belt. Without a doubt, the best thing we have going for us here is the community. You won’t find anyone here who won’t point out another teammate as being a big reason they were able to ascend to the next rank and help their overall progress. Without further adieu…
We would like to officially announce an update and revision to our membership pricing structure. At this point, we are not raising any prices for our membership options; we are quite happy about being able to keep our prices stable while adding more square footage to our facilities, a dedicated changing room, better mats, and moving to a new location.
Today we are ecstatic to announce a permanent update to our pricing structure as it relates to police officers and service men/women. Starting today, we will be giving a $20 discount to all police officers, firemen, and members of the armed forces under the unlimited membership option.
To sum it up, if you are an officer of the law, you may come in and sign up for unlimited classes at a $20 discount off of the full price of $140.
We are very excited and proud to be in a position to offer this service to our community. Police officers put their lives at risk every day for the benefit of us all. We wholeheartedly believe that developing an expertise in grappling is one of the best ways to keep officers and citizens safe in situations where someone must be apprehended.
Our curriculum of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu incorporates Judo and Wrestling to create a comprehensive solution for getting someone to the ground with the least amount of effort and keeping them there in the most energy-efficient manner possible. We have had great feedback from current members who happen to be officers of the law. The overwhelming feedback is that their main reason for training with us is to increase their toolset for dealing with people when a situation escalates into a physical confrontation, and, thanks to the training they receive at Yemaso BJJ, they feel much more secure that they will be going home to their loved ones each day at the end of their shift.
If you are a police officer or know someone who is, please share this link with them. We want to keep our officers safe and make a statement that we support our service men and women.
