A Chat with Pacific Top Team Corona
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Popularized in the USA in the early 90’s by the Gracie family when they dominated professional mixed martial arts, BJJ today offers self-defense, MMA, and sport BJJ. Prof. JP Garcia, a first degree black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr, has dedicated his life to learning and teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Attend your first class. You’ll probably be a bit nervous, and you’ll likely be fired up to prove yourself, but there is no need to feel this way. Don’t be nervous about how you will look; everyone was a beginner once. Try to fit in, and just take in the experience. Have fun and enjoy the class.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Martial Arts had a great impact in my life. Having my school is a dream come true. I have worked for many years towards this goal. I love teaching, and I enjoy every minute of it.
What do you love most about your job?
Teaching is my passion. It makes me happy to see the benefits that BJJ brings to kids and adults. Besides it being a great workout, it will make you a healthier person. I love the confidence it brings to people. To me, there’s no better feeling than to share that with someone else.
