Bobby Vega of Sampa BJJ
My name is Bobby Vega. First of all, I’m a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai coach at Sampa BJJ Academy in Glendora, CA.
My first martial arts lesson ever taken was at Sampa BJJ early 2012. Since then I never looked back at life without martial arts. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing are two things that I cannot be without anymore. I teach Kids Jiu Jitsu daily and Kickboxing as well. The benefits of martial arts are endless and have had a great impact on my life. I have lost 40 pounds (and counting) on this martial arts journey of mine!
Not only has martial arts allowed me to improve my health and lose weight. I’m more disciplined now and have strengthened my mind in many ways. I gained stronger work ethics, focus, self-control, and confidence. I have also been able to complete two Tough Mudder mud runs. Mud runs require mental toughness and physical endurance. When I first walked through the doors of Sampa BJJ, I’m weighing 275 lbs. I don’t have a clue to what Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was. I never thought I would be able to turn my life around and achieve the many goals I have. Overall, the training provided at Sampa BJJ has been life changing for me and I hope it can be that way for many others as well.
