Lovato’s BJJ Featured on Oklahoma City News Station KFOR

BJJ

It’s about time BJJ (brazilian jiu-jitsu) started getting some recognition in the Oklahoma City area!

As many BJJ practitioners are aware, jiu-jitsu doesn’t receive much attention.  The best thing to ever happen to brazilian jiu-jitsu is the UFC.  MMA brought jiu-jitsu to the USA.  Most people had never heard of it until Royce Gracie started choking people out in the cage.  Unfortunately, unless someone doesn’t follow MMA they still have no idea what brazilian jiu-jitsu is.  Luckily for us at Lovato’s BJJ and MMA, the local news station, KFOR, sent Bob Barry Jr. to do a segment on the academy!  Bob Barry Jr. is a renown sports newscaster in Oklahoma City and the surrounding metro.  Hopefully this kind of media will create more interest in our academy and jiu-jitsu as a whole!

UFC TUF Fighter Chris Holdsworth Talks Training at Lovato’s

That’s right, Chris “Holds it down” Holdsworth is an old friend and considered family around Lovato’s BJJ.  The current UFC fighter earned his black belt in jiu-jitsu under Marc Laimon, who has a lot of BJJ history with Rafael Lovato Jr., and decided to pursue his MMA career.  Holdsworth came to Oklahoma to help Justin Rader prepare for the upcoming ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship.  His jiu-jitsu is world class, which he demonstrated on the show by winning the TUF finale by submission.

ADCC Submission Wrestling Championship a Huge Success for Team Lovato | 30 Day Free Trial | Oklahoma City Submission Wrestling

ADCC Submission Wrestling Championship a Huge Success for Team Lovato

Submission WrestlingTeam Lovato did better than anyone could have predicted at the 2013 ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship!

The ADCC Submission Wrestling Championship is the Olympics of brazilian jiu-jitsu.  However, you could almost qualify it as a separate sport entirely.  The ADCC rules are completely different and it’s all no-gi.  Sometimes the ADCC gold doesn’t go to the best BJJ practitioner, but the person who can play the ADCC rules the best.  It’s a great mix of sport and strategy that is exciting to watch.  This year Team Lovato had 4 representatives.  Rafael Lovato Jr., Justin Rader, James Puopolo, and Jared Dopp.  Lovato placed second in the 88kg division, Rader placed 3rd in the 66kg division, and Dopp placed 4th in the 99+ kg division.

Mark makes his return to Lovato’s BJJ & MMA after traveling the world to train Muay Thai.

Kru Beecher has spent many years training, fighting, and teaching others the art of Muay Thai.  Kru is the equivalent of a black belt in Muay Thai and it is extremely prestigious.  In more recent years, he has been training MMA fighters, such as former UFC light heavy weight champion Forrest Griffin, how to be devastating strikers.  We were able to host Kru Beecher in Oklahoma City for a few days so our students could learn from one of the most sought after coaches in the world.  It was amazing experience to learn from such a knowledgeable competitor/coach!
