2 year celebration

In October we celebrated 2 years at our very first location. It's an amazing feeling to see each one of our students walk in daily and train with us. Life isn't easy and can often get in the way; and Jiu Jitsu can be one of the first extra curricular activities on the list of things to go when the going gets tough and cuts needs to be made. But you all have chosen to stick with it, stick with us and we've grown together. Many of the students we have today came as fresh white belts, and many are still walking through those doors and putting a gi on for the very first time. Without your interest and commitment to us, we wouldn't be where we are today. Thank you so much for helping contribute to our thriving academy! 

We had the honor of hosting Ricardo "Franjinha" Miller for a two hour seminar last weekend as well before our celebration. He went over some super secret sick technique that students have already implemented into their games and are smashing everyone who didn't attend! Great job guys and thank you again Franjinha, for your patience, humor and knowledge. 

Now, becauuuuse we were busy with classes and distracted by awesome techniques, we kind of neglected one area, which was actually promoting you guys! Here are some photos of all those awesome stripes and new belts! Congrats on all the hard work you've all put in!

Oh, and Milton received his second degree for his black belt.  I mean, I guess that's something right? Six years as a black belt and having the honor of your professor come to your academy and promote you, congrats to you too Miltinho!
