Square Circle New York Updates for July 2016 – Hello Summer!

Jul. 17, 2016 – We have a couple of events coming up for July and August!

This past weekend in New York City was the IBJJF Summer Open and SCNY athlete Jeffrey Lin competed in the tournament! Thank you all for the support in his training and well wishes. Big thanks to teammates Bridjette and Sheldon for being in his corner during his match! Ready for more training back to it this week!


There is another IBJJF Summer Open in Boston on August 20th. Bradley Alvelo and Justin Crespo will be competing in this tournament representing SCNY. Let’s wish them all the best!


SCNY’s Matt Gelsomino will be performing with his band, ACHE, at the Grand Victory July 17th Sunday in Brooklyn. There will be several bands performing at the venue. Event starts at 3pm. Come out and show your support!

Craig and Madison Fahey will be taking their ranking exam on Saturday August 6th! Let’s wish them the best in the SCNY Youth Program!

Coach Kenji Shimoda will be back for a limited time teaching BJJ at Square Circle New York. Just like coaches Aldrin and Greg, coach Kenji is a Renzo Gracie black belt and offers a wealth of knowledge along with his own distinct teaching style. Check your schedules and see if you are training with him on these dates.

We will be offering an all womens BJJ class with coach Kenji on Saturday August 13th! It is open to all members and friends of members that have not been here in the past. All you have to do is send an emailing to us RSVP’ing. There are only 14 slots and a Gi must be worn to the class.
