Student Spotlight: Ben Fuller

This week’s student spotlight is Ben Fuller. Ben is 6 years old and has been training with us for four months. Here’s what our coach Joey had to say about Ben: Ben has come a long way in the short time he’s been training here at cobra kai. Though he took naturally to jiu-jitsu, he has also put in a lot of hard work on the mats. He never misses a class and even comes in on weekends to really focus on his technique. The best part of it all is that he always maintains a positive attitude. Whenever I ask him how he’s doing, his answer is never just “good” it’s always “GREAT”

Here’s what our student Angela had to say about her experience at Cobra Kai: I started strength and conditioning classes with my boyfriend over a year ago. I liked the family oriented environment and how friendly and welcoming was so I had the kids join. The kids enjoyed it so I decided this summer when they went away for a month to try it myself. I initially tried it for the work out. Now it is not the workout that keeps me going. I want to get better at it and earn my stripes/belts. Everyone in class is helpful and not just trying to choke me out, so that is a plus too. I also like how the older kids in teen class are a good example to the younger ones.

Student Spotlight: Marc Luu

Marc Luu is this week’s featured student. Marc has been training with us since February and took first place at NAGA a few weeks ago. Here’s what Marc had to say about how he got started in jiu-jitsu: I think my love for grappling started with pro wrestling when I used to wrestle with my older brother as a kid. I started watching early UFCs as a young teen and was just always intrigued with the submission game. It was cool seeing the less athletic looking guy being able to defeat the guy that looked like an action figure. I’ve always wanted to learn and train but always ended up making excuses for myself, like not having enough time or money. I eventually got sick of making these excuses and just signed up. I’ve fallen in love with jiu-jitsu ever since. In the beginning, my goals were to stay in shape and learn self defense. The longer I trained, the more I became obsessed about the sport aspect of it. Its so fun watching YouTube videos and instructionals and learning new techniques and set ups.
