About Our


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.
