Meet the BC community:
 
Hi! I'm Gabe and I understand that all of my gifts are not from myself, but come from our Father in heaven. I am thankful for my parents, coaches and trainers that have helped me get this far. I really appreciate Brethren Christian and all of the support from the faculty and teachers.
 
I fell in love with jujitsu when I was younger. I did taekwondo first for four years, and that taught me discipline and respect. I then did baseball for a while, but eventually found my way back to the martial arts.  After training in Huntington Beach, I decided to change to my brother’s gym, Cleber Jiu-Jitsu. This is my home gym where I really grew in jujitsu. I believe I was able to get a lot better due to the fact that I train with both adults and kids everyday. We are all friends, and like a big family. I have been working on getting better, and I have been fortunate to win most of my jujitsu tournaments. Recently, I placed 2nd and won the Silver Medal at the SJJIF Jui Jitsu World Championships which was held at the Long Beach Arena. It is one of the biggest tournaments in the world, and it is for the “best of the best” adults and kids. I am currently a yellow belt and would like to eventually obtain my black belt. I also train in Judo every week which basically trains you how to toss or trip. Over the summer, I was able to work on an Anti-Bullying music video for my older brother's band, Blind Innocence, which you can see me in. It was a really cool experience! It feels great to receive support for everything from my BC family.
