We’re so happy to celebrate one year of jiu-jitsu training at our Marina Pacifica location. While we’ve been open and running classes for nearly 10 years now, our one year anniversary at our new location is a huge milestone. It’s always hard for a business to move locations. We were in our Signal Hill spot for 9 years and we made a lot of friends in the community there. We were comfortable in our space and we had a great base of students. However, the Signal Hill location had it’s drawbacks. Parking was limited, and our assigned spots were ever-dwindling as new businesses moved into our complex and needed more parking. Mat space could have been bigger, too!
Luckily, we found this hidden gem at Marina Pacifica shopping mall at 2nd and PCH in Long Beach. We’re on the lower level of the plaza, directly beneath Pier1 Imports. Being part of a shopping center has huge benefits for us! We have ample parking in the south parking lot. We have a brand new interior in our facility, with new mats and furnishings. There is a lot to do before and after class - we can take advantage of the movie theater on the same level, browse the bookstore, or grab a coffee. Our parents can drop their kids off and get groceries or walk the marina. It’s just such a better location! We’re also closer to Seal Beach, Los Alamitos, and Belmont Shore now so we are more accessible to the coastal areas than ever before!
We’re so honored to have such a great group of students supporting us for all these years. Thank you all for making this first year at Marina Pacifica so great! We can’t wait to see what the next year holds for all of us!
