Justin Pyle, Jr. competed at the Junior Grappling Summer Classic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament in Fredricksburg, Virginia Saturday July 30th, 2011.
Justin represented the Baltimore Martial Arts Junior Grappling Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition team. Single handily he won a first place team trophy and the “Iron Grapplers” cup which is awarded to the grappler who had the most matches during the event. Justin had 22 matches which was a new Junior Grappling record. Summertime has been tough on our junior BJJ competition team with so many kids on vacation and in summer camp, however our team is rallying for the next Junior Grappling tournament in Millersville, Maryland on August 20th, 2011.
Justin is an exemplary young man who not only has courage and the indomitable spirit, but also has compassion and a maturity which many teens now-a-days are lacking. Justin attends BJJ and Judo classes often four and sometimes five days a week. He assists Sensei Gary Berger with some of his BJJ classes for the younger children for which he is an admired role model.
Justin’s dad is a behind the scenes hero. We call him our dojo dad because he is always at the school either bringing Justin to class, training in Aikido or helping out in some capacity. Justin’s dad also tirelessly drives Justin to all of his numerous jujitsu tournaments which sometimes are hundreds of miles a way.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the martial arts in general has repeatedly been shown to help kids who may have difficulty adjusting to life in school or at home. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu helps children develop self confidence, build integrity and also gives them an ability to make better decisions. If you have a child or teenager that you think would benefit from our jujitsu programs please call.
