Andre Galvao Chooses FUJI Mats for the New ATOS Jiu-Jitsu HQ Academy
New York, N.Y. (Jan. 5, 2015) ? To outfit the new ATOS Jiu-Jitsu HQ Academy in San Diego, Calif., Professor Andre Galvao selected FUJI Mats to cover the nearly 5,000 square feet of training space. A 3rd degree Black Belt and 10-time Pan-American Jiu-Jitsu champion, Galvao has been training and coaching on the FUJI Mats since they were installed in November. FUJI assisted with the mat-layout design and installation.
When he acquired the space for his growing business, Galvao knew he had a choice of mat providers. He understood that FUJI Mats was a new entrant into martial arts mats, but he trusted the experience of Jimmy Pedro, FUJI Mats President. ?I knew that FUJI would develop the best mats for us,? says Andre Galvao. ?I have great trust for the expertise Jimmy Pedro brings to FUJI, and I knew this would be the right choice for me and my grapplers.?
Galvao contacted FUJI Mats & Facility Design, and sent them pictures and measurements of the new training areas. The FUJI Mats & Facility Design Team provided ATOS with a fully customized training center solution that maximized the floor space and gave the new facility a clean and professional look that would accentuate the ATOS brand.
?So far, everybody loves the new training space and the mats,? says Galvao. ?Our students and team members are very impressed with the FUJI Mats. Now I have a better training environment, the total space is more professional, and the logos and colors of the mats and wall pads are perfect. This is now one of the best mat training spaces in all of California.?
Galvao chose the FUJI TATAMI series 1.5-inch mats, the ideal choice for traditional stand-up and grappling martial arts. With their TATAMI-textured surface, these mats offer a traditional and professional look while providing a fast and safe surface for gi grappling. The Blue and Black mats matched the ATOS colors perfectly. The 2-inch thick wall pads complete the design and increase safety, and they are finished with the ATOS and Andre Galvao BJJ logos.
?We know Professor Galvao is a champion competitor, coach and businessman,? says Jimmy Pedro, President of FUJI Mats, ?and FUJI is proud to help him and his students train safely everyday. We look forward to a long relationship with Andre Galvao and the ATOS team.?
Galvao?s ATOS Jiu-Jitsu HQ Academy will conduct its Grand Opening celebration Jan. 9 at the new facility. Galvao and his instructors provide training and coaching for all levels of Jiu-Jitsu competitors, from children and beginners to black-belt athletes and Jiu-Jitsu competitors.
