Student organizations are a great way to get involved with the campus!
Student organizations here at UW-Superior offer a wide variety in categories such as academics, athletics, volunteering, faith, and politics, in addition to Greek chapters. With almost 100 different student organizations in a total of 11 different categories offered at UW-Superior, students' are likely to find one that fits their interests!
This week we are recognizing our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu student club. Jiu-jitsu is a martial art combat sport and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. The purpose of the club at UW-Superior, backed by advisor Dr. Sakib Mahmud, is to teach students how to defend themselves, stay fit and have fun.
Recently the team's president, Iuri Lima, went to Chicago to represent UW-Superior at the Naga Grappling Tournament, which is the world's largest of its kind. Lima finished third in both brackets he competed in, earning two bronze medals in the event. Lima is thankful for the opportunity the school has given him and the club, and is eager to continue representing the school in similar events in the future.
Congratulations to Iuri and the UW-Superior Jiu-jitsu Club!
