5 Months Ago, Someone Caused An Accident & Flooded Edwin Najmi’s Gym. On Saturday, She Did It Again

They say that lightning never strikes the same place twice, but apparently, the same woman is very capable of striking the same fire hydrant and flooding the same jiu-jitsu gym twice in just a few months’ time.

Five months ago, before Gracie Barra Tarzana (owned by newly crowned Polaris welterweight champion Edwin Najmi) had even opened, a woman caused chaos by crashing her car into a fire hydrant outside the gym, which flooded the academy and caused a delay in its opening. Horribly unfortunate, but hey, just a freak accident that wouldn’t possibly happen again, right?

Well…

“so on saturday, the same driver that flooded our gym 5 months ago. caused the SAME accident and crashed into the SAME fire hydrant and flooded the front part of our gym. it’s really ****** up and idk how it’s possible for the same lady to cause the same accident. it’s literally unbelievable. idk what I did to the world to deserve this. but trying to stay positive and figure out the situation as we speak. @gbtarzana will be closed for a week while we figure it out and all our students are welcome to train at @gbnorthridge / @gbthousandoaks free of charge. thank you everyone for all the love and understanding the situation ❤️”

Needless to say, the whole thing is a big, frustrating mess made even more frustrating by the fact that the exact same thing happened just a few months ago.

Thankfully, though, it doesn’t look like this mishap will be holding back GB Tarzana for too long — Najmi told the Jiu-Jitsu Times that the gym should be back up and running in about a week.
