As you all know, the Sampa BJJ Academy sponsored Mr. Richard Nogueria to compete at Pan American Jiu-Jitsu tournament of 2017. At Sampa BJJ, we had given him training for this tournament and paid for all of his expenses. But unfortunately, he lost at the tournament and didn’t get the result that he wanted. His defeat did not change the way we, at Sampa, think about him because we all look up to his hard work and dedication to training.
At Sampa, he was not only been training but was also helping us out in our classes and camps. He is a very nice and humble guy with a great attitude. He was really a great addition to our Sampa BJJ school. He had given our Sampa students an additional edge on competition oriented Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu sport teaching his great techniques to the students.
We are hoping that Mr. Richard will be a great addition to the Sampa BJJ Academy in the future.
Mr. Richard is back in Brazil and now training for the Brazilian Nationals, which should be at the end of this month. And we are trying to get Mr. Richard back here to Sampa in the beginning or the mid of May so that our students can train with him. We want to sponsor him back again in upcoming competitions, but this time we don’t have too many funds available to sponsor him and thus need the help of our Sampa student to raise the fund for his sponsorship.
To raise fund for his sponsorship, we are doing some seminars. In these seminars, we will be having him teach a class so that students can donate something. We want him to stay here for a longer time at least three months so that people can get benefits from his hard work ethics. We are also launching a Go Fund Me page for fundraising so that people can go online and give funds or donate money towards his competitions. We are making every effort to bring him back to our Sampa BJJ Academy. We are hoping that people will help us in raising funds for him to bring him back.
If we could reach the amount of money that is needed to bring him here at Sampa, then it will be great. But if the funds are not sufficient, then we, Sampa, will add the rest of the money.
If you are interested in donating please call 626-335-4971 or download our Go Fund Me App to donate online.
