We are dedicated to serving the special needs communities of North Orange County and Long Beach
An integration of Kung Fu and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, this program benefits both the body and the mind. Students will develop increased strength, balance, and coordination while learning focus and discipline. Cooperation and mutual benefit for other students will be encouraged to help promote social skills.
Adaptability is key in teaching those with special needs. We keep class sizes small to ensure a positive and fun experience for everyone.
Ryan has been studying Jiu Jitsu since 2011. He holds the rank of 4th Degree Orange Belt, and trains under Coaches Ali Saleh and CJ Herrera out of A-Team Jiu Jitsu/Checkmat in Westminster.
Ryan was first diagnosed with ADHD in the 4th grade. Not too long after, his specialist concluded he had Asperger’s Syndrome, which has some ADHD similarities. He struggled socially and academically. Jiu Jitsu was recommended by his then elementary school principal. After two years his parents started to see a change in him in both socially and academically. He is now on the Dean’s List and National Honor Society. In 2015, Ryan learned of the Special Needs Jiu Jitsu classes taught by Coach Kristen Davidson of Unlimited Possibilities Martial Arts. He wanted to help, and has been doing so on Wednesdays ever since. He loves helping and being part of the program, helping other people similar to him.
He has won Gold numerous times at: SJJIF Worlds, IBJJF Pan Kids, NABJJF LA Open, NABJJF All Americas, NABJJF North American, Kids World, Five Grappling, South Bay, DREAM, Gracie, GrapplngX, NAGA as well as Invitational only events for a total of 42 Gold Medals, 5 Silver, 4 Bronze, 8 Swords and a few belts.
Hey my name is Lily Kim. I’ve been doing Jiu Jitsu since I was 10 years old and I am now 15 and still loving Jiu Jitsu . In my spare time when I’m not doing Jiu Jitsu I can be spotted right on the beach soaking up some sun or on some crazy adventure.
