The self-defense skills we teach allow our students to live comfortably and confidently. Students who train at The Base Camas represent us in their daily life by reflecting our values. . This discipline and character is developed within every martial artist who takes our BJJ classes.  We all learn from each other and seek opportunities to improve and give back to the community.

Our History:

The Mendiola family opened The Base Camas to make a difference in the lives of students and leave behind a legacy. After facing countless struggles in life himself, Jiu-Jitsu helped Gil Mendiola rediscover family and friendship. It encouraged an increase in empathy, generosity, and kindness towards others to help improve his life. With their new BJJ academy, the Mendiolas simply wish to help the community by making it safer. Every student of theirs will know self-defense skills and how to use them if absolutely necessary.
