Every Day is Fight Day for Angel “Halo” Lopez

Step inside Halo Jiu Jitsu Academy where every day is fight day and meet Angel Lopez as he gets ready to lay it on the line at Rollar 10K

Angel Lopez has a simple philosophy – every day is fight day. A result of his time in the United States Infantry, his strength as a Jiu Jitsu coach comes from his military training. He learned to follow so that he could be a great leader.

Angel is the owner and head coach at Halo Jiu Jitsu in Fresno, CA. Every day he wakes up, drinks a coffee and starts afresh for a whole day of Jiu Jitsu. The boundless energy of the black belt is remarkable. His dedication to his craft and passion to pass on his knowledge makes Angel one of the best coaches in the game.

From drilling the basics and running up steps, to advanced Jiu Jitsu, Angel embodies his philosophy of every day is fight day. He says that the only person you need to beat is yourself. Look at the man in the mirror and be better every day.

Aside from competing at Fight 2 Win and other tournaments on a regular basis, Angel will be flying to the United Kingdom to compete at Rollar 10K, the UK’s newest Jiu Jitsu competition. He is hoping to win some of the £10,000 top prize money in the black belt division.

Rollar 10K is already attracting some of the top talent from across the world and has interested Angel enough that he will cross the continental USA and the Atlantic Ocean in order to take on all comers and grab the glory for himself.
