A note from Professor Felipe Fogolin, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo Blackbelt, and Professional MMA Fighter:
Triunfo translated from Brazilian Portuguese means Triumph. At Triunfo we aim to be triumphant as an academy, a team, and individuals over all challenges we may face both in martial arts as well as life. It is said that the way we do one thing is the way we do all things, therefore the diligence, respect, humility, and confidence we develop in training begins to show up elsewhere in our lives. Being triumphant does not always equate to a win or an end result, but rather the attitude and spirit in which we face challenges and setbacks. Winning is not always in our control, but being triumphant is and we must take full responsibility for that. Many new students have come to me excited to be the best jiu jitsu practioner, or the best muay thai fighter, or the best in MMA and while I stand behind any goals our students may have its most important that they prioritize becoming the best version of themselves. That’s true triumph, that’s what Triunfo brings out in our students and community, and this is what makes me proud.
I have been training for Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai at Triunfo for a few weeks now and I love it! The instructors are world class fighters and take joy in teaching. There are students from all ages and everyone is very friendly and always willing to teach you everything they know in order to help you get better.
When I was looking for a great gym to work out at and learn some fighting skills I happened upon Triunfo because of my boyfriend. This is THE BEST GYM to learn MMA because of the high caliber of coaches here. At other gyms in COSTA MESA you might find ONE SINGLE BLACK BELT. At Triunfo, FELIPE has a JUDO BLACK BELT as well as a BRAZILIAN JIUJITSU BLACK BELT. Muay Thai Coach TYLER has a BLACK BELT IN MUAY THAI. Whether you are looking to become the next ULTIMATE FIGHTER or like me, looking for a good work out. WHY wouldn't you surround yourself with greatness? The gym is well kept, full of motivating training partners, as well as ORANGE COUNTY'S top COACHES. At the end of the day, when choosing a gym, why wouldn't you want to learn from 3 BLACK BELTS? Any other gym in COSTA MESA might have just one.
Triunfo is a really amazing spot to learn BJJ. I had never been into martial arts and was intimidated going in, but Alex and Felipe were really cool and made me feel at home from the start. This is such a great place to be. I daydream about class all day while at work and can't wait to walk in the door with my gear ready to train. The instructors are very knowledgable and technical, and they take a lot of time to make sure we are learning and growing as jiu jitsu practitioners. If this were just a BJJ gym the membership would be worth it, but there are also a lot of other classes. I've been staying for Muai Thai lately and having a blast learning standup from a really excellent teacher.
My 13-year-old son has been going to this MMA gym for about 4 months now. It's awesome! Lots of classes: jiu jitsu, judo, wrestling, MMA, Muay Thai, karate and a few others. The staff couldn't be any better and there's a real camaraderie at work here. In addition to the excellent martial arts training, the trainers are also passionate about helping kids develop character. Can't say enough good things about Triunfo!
