Walnut’ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Location Under New Management
In 2011, we have started our first Sampa BJJ Academy in Glendora, California. And 3 years later in 2014, we decided to try our second location in the city near West Covina in the city of Walnut, California.
So we have opened our second Sampa BJJ Academy inside a Kung Fu School were we sub-rented it, situated at 20475 Yellow Brick Rd #3G, Walnut.
There we actually had an opportunity to commute our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Kick Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts classes and not only that we got the chance to make a great friendship with the Owner of the Kung fu school, which in later years become Prof Renato’s friends in the stunt industry. Coincidentally Mr. Sunny belongs to the stunt team 8711 where prof. Renato has been training lately.
We then decided to move our Walnut location to 18856 Amar Rd, Ste 4 Walnut, California. At this location, the strength of our classes started to grow although it was a small location we were still able to grow as the quality of the Jiu Jitsu classes does not reflect the size of the facility. In other words, the quality of the Jiu Jitsu classes were way better than it could look because of the facility’s size.
When we started these classes, we had a couple of instructors that are coming on and off to teach the kids. These instructors unfortunately, were not giving their 100 % to the kids.
The students were also aware of it and eventually, they started dropping out as other new students were enrolling in. Our growth, then becomes stagnated because every time we got a new student we lose an old student.
So, at last, we have decided to change the management and the instructors of the class completely. As Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing are a serious matter so we have decided to hire not only qualified Jiu-Jitsu instructors but passionate ones, which are eager to teach the student the best.
And can help the kids reach their goals with our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, submission wrestling and Muay Thai and in life.
Then in beginning of the 2017 year under the new management, we had really seen a considerable growth in the number of students in all of our classes such adults BJJ, Muay Thai program and kids jiu jitsu classes. We are really very happy to be able to see this growth.
Now we just moved to a bigger 2,600 sq. feet facility for our Sampa BJJ Academy classes in Walnut. It is now at 355 South Lemon ave Unit L, Walnut Ca 91789.
Take a look at the picture of the first day class in the new facility, the sign and the Master Carlos Gracie picture are not even hanging on the wall yet.
The second week of December 2017 was when we first open our doors at that location although the facility is only 70% finished the classes are being held and soon we will be ready for our grand opening with new mats and everything.
We serve the communities of Walnut, Diamond Bar, West Covina, and Rowland Heights.
