Versus Kids Dream Team places 3rd out of 115 Acadamies
We couldn't be more proud of the Versus Kids for all their hard work in preparation for the Dream Jiu Jitsu State Championships. All the kids put on a exceptional show of skill, hard work and heart.

Versus Kids brought a team of 38 kids and had 81 matches for the day. The whole team contributed to this effort and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Letter to a Concerned Parent | Kids Martial Arts in Montebello

Let me first off congratulate the whole Versus team for all their hard work. It takes all of us. From the Parents supporting, learning maybe even participating, to coaches who dedicate their time, effort, knowledge and experience. It takes Respectful Training partners to work with. It’s the whole village.

First tournament win!



And I’m not speaking of the gym or the team. I’m talking about the individual. More specifically, the 5 year old child, the 7 year old goofball, the quiet reserved 10 year old or the ever changing attitude of the Teenager.



They all come in at different stages and we get to work with what they have. Improving...

Return of the Versus Kids-Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Montebello

The day after the tournament and my newsfeed is filled with pictures, posts, videos from yesterday’s event. There are a lot of memories being shared by proud parents and friends of the largest team we have ever assembled for a tournament and with this particular event being the largest it has ever been.


Back in Oct 2013, I was asked to referee at one of the first Kid’s Dream events. The Versus Kids were still new at the time and had not yet begun preparing for competition. I got an understanding of what it was like to be on the other side of the coaches and crowd. One reason you won’t find me being too rough on the refereeing. It’s a tough job with an experience and le...

Martial Arts Teach Kids How to Set Goals

I remember being too shy as a kid to go out in front of people. My parents wanted to sign me up for sports teams in soccer and baseball but it wasn't until my younger brother went out there that I gave it a try. My earliest memories were that I had fun playing soccer but not so much baseball. At minimum I enjoyed the nachos at the concession stand. They hand-cut and deep fried their own chips and they were delicious. It just wasn't my sport. I tried out and because I could run fast on the bases and I could throw relatively straight, I made it to Minor A. I didn't belong there to say the least. I was uncomfortable and awkward.

Happy to Announce our Expansion | Versus Fitness & Martial Arts

I made a Post early 2013 with a picture of an empty room. It was a blank canvas to me and sometimes when I don't know what to draw or paint, well, I just start by putting up colors I like, then lines, then ideas start to form and we go from there. We make mistakes, we make adjustments. We add more color, we erase and take color away.

Versus Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competition | Dream BJJ

Versus Kids did a Fantabulous job at the Dream Jiu Jitsu tournament.


Their hard work leading up to one of the largest Jiu Jitsu tournaments in Southern California(over 750 competitors from 100 academies), as always, was especially awesome to see. We have mighty little individuals but we shine because we stick together as a team. The team had altogether over 40 matches for the day. Our coaches including myself are mentally and emotionally attached to every single one of them. Its difficult not to be really. We see them in class struggling on a technique until they get it, sweat drenched uniforms from all the hard work and getting to know all their different personalities.


I'm proud of all the V...
