New Lovato BJJ Academy Grand Opening!

    Mon, 2008-02-04 12:47 — LovatoJr

    We are happy to announce that after many years of hard-work, Lovato's School of BJJ & Vale Tudo will be moving into a top-notch facility. This will be a huge upgrade with the new facility being more than three times as big as the current location. To kick things off in the new school we will be having a grand opening celebration.

    The Grand Opening will be on Saturday, March 1st. Current 3x Heavyweight World BJJ Champion Xande Ribeiro will be conducting a special seminar that day from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. The famous onthemat.com (Gumby) will be present to write an article about this special event and they will also be providing prizes for a raffle that will be after the seminar. OnTheMat will also be presenting Rafael Lovato Jr. & Xande Ribeiro with their Best of 2007 awards. Students are encouraged to bring their family & friends to take part in this special event. We will also be offering a 1/2 off enrollment special for those who join our one of a kind school that day. Please mark you calendars and come celebrate as we start a new journey in our new home. Everyone is invited. See you there!

    This will be a very special day for my father and I. We are so excited.

    The grand opening was awesome, thanks everyone for the support. It was a really great weekend for us out here in Oklahoma. Check out Gumby's blog for a little breakdown of the weekend and look out for his article about it coming soon. We had 60 people on the mat on Saturday for Xande's seminar. Last night was our first official class at the new place and we had 40 people there. It feels great to have such a nice facility to go along with all the great people and training.
