We are proud to announce Monroe Halls Gold Medal performance at the 2010 Pan American Championships. Winning both his division and the absolute (no weight restriction). As a added note the week before Monroe won at NAGA a national grappling competition. Great Job Monroe!
The United States Naval Academy has implemented a (BJJ) Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program that is headed and overseen by Black Belt Duke Koblinsky. The program is coached by multiple time grappling and BJJ champion, brown belt Marc Cruise. Marc coaches and Duke oversees the new program, with great results. Mat space is hard to come by as Duke and Marc coach up to 125 cadets at a time. All the mat time is volunteered under the idea of civic duty to our country. At Maryland BJJ we pride ourselves on teamwork,hard work and dedication. Working with the Naval Academy is a privilege and we enjoy all the hard work. Thanks again to all our men and women serving our country at home and overseas.
