The Holzapfel Brothers – The Dynamic Duo




Caleb and Elijah Holzapfel

The Dynamic Duo

These two crazy brothers have no fear.  

Growing up home schooled in a large family gave the Holzapfel brothers the entrepreneurship to try and learn anything.  If it worked for reading, writing, and arithmetic, then it should be fine for Jiu-Jitsu.  Right?

So they watched some videos, trained together, and tried competing in Jiu-Jitsu tournaments.  Some might call it crazy, but we like to think of it as fearless.

We are proud to say, they chose to formalize their training with Kano Jiu-Jitsu at The Judokai in 2014.

Caleb Holzapfel worked in a correctional institution and brings a special toughness and drive to his training.  Broken ribs and injuries that would normally stop others do not seem to bother Caleb.  He just keeps going.

Elijah Holzapfel works as an engineer, but is a former gymnast.  Consequently, Elijah possesses great flexibility and is the worst person on which to practice submissions.  


Caleb and Elijah Holzapfel competed in the 2015 and 2016 AAU Freestyle Judo National Championships, both placing in each event.  In addition to their JiuJitsu competition, they are also competitors in Fight Club.

Come formalize your Jiu-Jitsu training with the Dynamic Duo at The Judokai.
