This year’s winter Youth Fellowship Challenge (YFC) was once again a huge success. With over 100 kids from North Miami Beach, Pembroke Pines and Fort Lauderdale and nearly 250 parents and friends in attendance, it was the largest event so far. Professor Pedro Valente opened the challenge with a speech reminding all participants, parents, and friends of the fellowship and positive nature of the YFC. Professor Valente also reminded parents that Jiu-Jitsu, unlike other recreational sports, should constitute an integral part of every child’s education.
As usual the challenge was divided into two parts. Initially, the little champs and juniors took action, later Juniors 1 and 2 demonstrated their skills. Another great attribute of the YFC is that it provides participants with the opportunity to perform under pressure in a safe and positive setting.
In closing, Professor Valente thanked all present and in special the parents who believe in the Valente Brothers youth program and continuosly support the school.
