Each year the Oakland Award Program selects only one winner per category, and we are proud to have been selected this year as the best jiu-jitsu school in Oakland. They focus on companies that have demonstrated their ability to use various marketing methods to grow their business in spite of difficult economic times. The companies chosen exemplify the best of small business; often leading through customer service and community involvement.
For most companies, this recognition is a result of the company’s dedication and efforts as well as the work of others in the organization that have helped build the business. The Bay Jiu-Jitsu Oakland team is now a part of an exclusive group of small businesses that have achieved this selection.
The organization published a press release in August 2015. Here is a re-post of their press release.
