Video work for Rocky Mountain Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Video work is another area of creative outlets that we offer clients. Media requirements can differ from business to business. We have found that by being able to offer both high end photography in Calgary and also videography this has been a benefit to clients.

We recently did some filming and editing for @Rockymountainbjj

The video linked to this blog post is for a company called Rocky Mountain Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is owned and operated by Christian Simmerling and his family. Below is a section from their website.

“Professor Christian Simmerling started his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey in 2007 with the Godfather of Alberta Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Josh Russell. After being drafted to the Calgary Stampeders and playing the 2004 and 2005 season, Christian was looking to still compete in a combat sport and fell in love with the gentle art. Christian was awarded his Black Belt in 2015, then moved to New Jersey in fall of 2016. While living in New Jersey, Christian studied at multiple schools learning from the top instructors and trained with the highest level grappling athletes in the North East.

Christian trained consistently at Silver Fox BJJ, Renzo Gracie Northern Valley, Renzo Gracie Denville, and the legendary Renzo Gracie HQ in New York, New York on West 30th Street. On a weekly basis, Christian took the train into New York City to attend the lunch competition class taught by John Danaher. Christian’s training partners typically would include Jake Shields, Gordon Ryan, Daniel Gracie, Nick Rodriguez, Brian Glick and Igor and Gregor Gracie.

In 2019, Christian returned home to Calgary and opened Rocky Mountain Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Christian continues to travel to New York twice a year to learn from John Danaher, Karel “Silver Fox” Pravec, Carl Massaro and George Sernack.

Christian has medaled in the New York Open, World Masters, ADCC trials, Grappling Industries, has won numerus super fights and countless CBJJF gold medals.”

For this we wanted to give an opportunity for people of all walks of life to be able to meet Christian and see what they do at his school. In a short period of time they were able to meet their instructor before even visiting the location. They were able to see the calm and safe environment as well as seeing students enjoying classes there. We desired to show that there was something for everyone at this school for women and men from children up to mature students in a welcoming safe environment.
