It's not every day the greatest of all time visits your Academy!  Team Junqueira / Marcelo Garcia Pittsburgh Association hosted the 5x World - 4x ADCC Champ this past Saturday for it's annual affiliation seminar.  Academy owner Rodrigo Junqueira and Marcelo are long time friends from back home in Brazil and had plenty of stories to share about the early days of BJJ in Brazil as well as stories about coming to America.  If that wasn't enough participants got a peek inside the mind of the humble Champ as he shared his favorite techniques on the mat for 3 hours with a packed house of over 60 BJJ students!  It was an awesome day indeed!

Team Junqueira is currently accepting new students at both the Wexford Pa. and the Morgantown WV. locations!

Coach Neale Hoerle returns to IBJJF Competition

“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more” - Shakespeare 

Since retiring from competition in 2015 Coach Neale Hoerle has dedicated his time and energy to growing the Academy and bettering his skills. As a reward for his efforts Head Coach Rodrigo Junqueira honored him as his second Black Belt in 2016 and opened the door to the next level of dedication and training he would experience.  One year has passed since that day and barring the exception of the New York Spring Open (April 2017) Coach Hoerle has not seriously competed since early 2015.  Today that changes as Coach Hoerle has announced that he will return to IBJJF Competition, beginning this July, at the IBJJF New York Summer Int. Open. Not one to rest Coach Hoerle will be following up his return performance with the IBJJF World Master's Championships, the following month, in Las Vegas Nevada.  We would like to wish him good luck and God speed as he sets out, once agin, on what will surely be a difficult and epic journey!  Oss!  

Vá com Deus

TEAM JUNQUEIRA OSS!

Mitchell's Fight

Please help Team Junqueira raise money for Micthell Mongomery's fight against cancer!

CLICK HERE TO DONATE

My name is Neale Hoerle and I've been a Jiu Jitsu athlete for over 20 years. In that time Jiu Jitsu has taught me humility, respect and honor and I believe it has changed my life for the better.

I am currently ranked Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and although I haven't competed in two years I feel compelled to step back on the mats this April at the IBJJF New York Open. My main goal and inspiration is a young man named Mitchell Montgomery.  Mitchell who is only 4 years old, was diagnosed on September 28th with a Wilms Tumor and is currently in treatment for Stage III Kidney Cancer. Wilms tumor is a relatively rare cancer with about 500 cases diagnosed each year in the U.S. Mitchell went through 6 weeks of chemotherapy to reduce the tumor so surgeons could remove the cancerous kidney. After several months of treatment, the tumor shrunk just enough for the kidney to be removed.

Following his kidney removal, Mitchell now has 4 months of radiation and chemotherapy. The treatment includes cycles of 5 inpatient chemotherapy days and 2 weeks of outpatient chemotherapy.

Mitchell is a sweet, fun, loving, super hero, ready to fight and defeat this challenge. The Montgomery’s, a family of five, are facing mounting medical bills and need your support to win this fight.

My fight is for Mitchell.  In the 20+ years I have been a part of the BJJ community I have seen us pull together to help one another and I can find no stronger motivation in my heart than to fight for Mitchell...  He is fighting a much tougher fight than me and I would love to hang my Gold medal around his neck for Championing cancer with strength and honor. 

I pledge to donate 100% of the monies I can raise through this campaign to Mitchell and his family and I am asking for your help!  Every dollar counts... please find it in your heart to support the Montgomery family through my efforts.

God Bless,

Neale Hoerle
