After renting space in various places for the last 5 years, my dear friend  Juan Montenegro has opened his own location in Garden Grove for Orange County Judo Training Center.

The address is:

Orange County Judo Training Center
10706 Garden Grove Boulevard
Garden Grove, CA  92843

The dojo will have over 1400 square foot of tatami, and it will be built on a floating floor.  OCJTC will greatly increase the number of classes held throughout the week, and it will simply be an awesome place to train.

They are having a Grand Opening Special during this month.  Those who enroll during September (as long as the number of reserved spots doesn't get exceeded) will save hundreds of dollars per year in tuition....and it will be guaranteed for three years.  If you know anyone who has been thinking about learning judo in the OC,  they should call Glen Waipa at 951-313-7725 and set up an appointment to come in and try the class for free.

Juan just had the sign painted on the window on Monday after class.  On Wednesday, 3 new people drove by and came in, and two of them enrolled on the spot!  By the end of class,  seven people came in and five of them are doing the class tonight, and two are doing it on Wednesday.  All of this while the place is still being built!

Here is a link to the Facebook for OCJTC:

Thanks, yet again, to Chuck Jefferson of Swain Mats.  He is simply greatest and most knowledgeable mat salesperson in the world.  Awesome advice and great pricing.

 Thanks Guys.  Andre Galvao dropped by tonight. 

Not only is he an awesome athlete and instructor, but he's just so nice and humble.  He downplayed his accomplishments so much, that I had to explain to the students who he was. After class, he took pictures with the students and kids who wanted them.  He still had to do that long drive back down to San Diego.

Maybe some Facebook pictures will go up in the next day or two.
