Congratulations goes out to Mitchell [Gold - Brown Belt and Brown Belt Absolute], Kaihi [Gold - White Belt Kids], Zane [Gold - White Belt Adult], Caleb [Gold - White Belt Adult] and special recognition to Cisco for winning his first match in a Jiu-Jitsu tournament by submission. Great job fellas.
We would like to thank Orlando for his generous contribution of a new refrigerated water fountain to the school. Also, thank you goes out to Virgil for installing the unit against the makai side of the main mat which will provide convenient hydration for all of our memebers. We also added a GE water filter [takes out chlorine, microbes and more] so everyone can enjoy clean and cold water during practice; making lugging around a hydroflask, well, optional. Stoked!

Ronn Shiraki Academy
The Relson Gracie Ronn Shiraki Academy (RSA) is a small, low-key but highly advanced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school located in the heart of Honolulu, Hawaii on the island of Oahu. We are dedicated instructors who strive to provide a pure "art" and soul martial arts environment with a focus on traditional methods of training.
