Monday, April 18th 2011 – It was a great weekend to introduce Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu St. Augustine’s to the local community with it’s GRAND OPENING.  The student’s who attended the event were given their first FREE class, and had the opportunity to have questions answered by 2nd Degree Black Belt instructor Phil Cardella .

The lessons were conducted in a positive, fun, and detailed manner, and it was a great opportunity for current team members and beginners to spar with the Owner/Head instructor Phil Cardella.  Those who already had a background in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, as well as the inexperienced were eager to learn from a world class instructor.

After warming up and welcoming the new Academy, Phil Cardella and fellow students attended the Rythym and Ribs festival to enjoy great BBQ and time to mingle with the community.
