A Champion in SIX MONTHS OR LESS? They all laughed when we said that we could make anybody a champion in this amount of time. Did you ever think this could be possible? Unless you’re super talented, you’ve probably doubted this possibility. But, with our system and time-tested curriculum at BAMF, we make everything possible! We’ve proven, time and time again for almost 2 decades that YES, We CAN MAKE YOU A CHAMPION IN SIX MONTHS OR LESS.

Need proof? We awarded our latest batch of CHAMPIONS the RECOGNITION they DESERVE! With all their hard work, dedication, and heart – coupled with the guidance of Prof. Alvin Aguilar and our system of accelerated learning – they are now BONAFIDE MEMBERS OF THE 6 MONTH CHAMPION CLUB. These are ordinary people, they work, they go to school, they’re young and young at heart – they’re just like you! Let us begin by introducing the newest members that received their award last Friday.

  1. Juancho Mendoza – is a BANKER! Yes, he’s got high stress day job, with high stress deadlines and quotas to achieve EVERY MONTH. But that didn’t stop him from training regularly evenings before heading home and calling it a day! In less than 6 months, about 5 months into his training, he joined his first ever Jiu-jitsu competition and went home with a GOLD MEDAL in his division! He fought long and hard that day, in a stacked division, mostly with seasoned white belts, but nonetheless, he made it to the top!IMG_9677
  2. Patricia Gomez – Young, smart, beautiful and talented! Patricia Gomez at first sight would not be the type of girl you would imagine rolling on the mat with all the other sweaty boys and girls – she’s a singer; previously a contender for The Voice Philippines – yup she’s got talent! AND YES, SHE’S A CHAMPION in Jiu-jitsu! She achieved this feat 6 months into training, bringing home GOLD in the Women’s Absolute Division! More than all of that, Patricia Gomez has been studying for her board exam in Interior Design, balancing her time for study and training was tough but she made it through all of that, passing her board exam just last week! A singer, BJJ Champion, now a certified IDR and bonafide member of the 6 Month Champion Club!IMG_9676
  3. Ryan Lastra – A businessman and former triathlete! Ryan Lastra, showed everybody what was up when he joined his first ever BJJ Competition a little more than 2 months since he started training! He joined the masters and adults division all in one day and went home with 3 GOLD medals and 1 SILVER medal! Talk about a LEGIT CHAMPION! He trains early in the morning and even tries to make it to evening training! A real CHAMPION, now a bonafide member of the 6 Month Champion Club, and as if that wasn’t enough, he RECEIVED HIS BLUE BELT on the evening of his awarding.IMG_9684
  4. Francis Tapia – Francis could not make it to the awarding ceremony due to his crazy schedule as a flight attendant but we can never forget his astounding achievements for the team in competition. Just before his sixth month of training he became a double GOLD champion in the men’s adult white belt division at his first ever BJJ competition! All it took was dedication, trust and lots of heart! He’s working on making his game more well-rounded and we know he will continue on to make our family proud!
  5. Giordan Guiyab – An elite young pilot for Philippine Airlines, Giordan is a champion with a strong and dedicated heart and mind! He joined his first competition with less than 5 months of experience and took home his first GOLD MEDAL! He first got into Jiu-jitsu because he was inspired by his better half Patricia Gomez’ victories and sought it out as a way for them to spend more time together, as he follows a very busy schedule – frequently flying. He’s a fast learner, very committed and tries his best to be consistent with his training!

We also awarded some of our long time members of the 6 Month Champion Club like Michelle Masuda and Vince Ortiz – who have long been upholding the legacy of this club alongside all our other 6 month champion members (e.g. Maybelline Masuda – first Filipino World Champion and Asian Beach Games Gold Medalist; Chris Hofmann – URCC Champion and Multiple Double and Quadruple Gold Medalist; Kat Del Rosario – Double Gold Medalist; Paula Ditona – Gold medalist in 6 months; Sandra De las Alas – Gold medalist in less than 6 months; Patrick Lubaton – Double Gold Medalist in 6 months)  . All these men and women, hold a place in BAMF and DEFTAC History, they inspire many of us to keep striving to be the best that we can be. Nothing is impossible once you’ve set your mind to it and trust in our guidance and our proven system. Congratulations once again and cheers to more conquering and victories to come!
