Once again in 2012 we had full house for our last event of the year. What a great year for our team. It has been amazing so far. Looking back, we had the legend himself Ricardo De La Riva for a visit earlier in May. In August we had the pleasure to welcome Vitor Shaolin for a BJJ/MMA seminar, which has also started our MMA classes.
In competitions our students represented well showing that we are in the right way. White, blue and purple belts doing the homework and the results show our competitive side in all those belts. It makes believe that the future is definitely bright.
Our team is growing in number, but, also in experience. Last Saturday, our grading went to another level. Our first ever (in-house) brown belt! Congrats to Edward Wynn who got awarded his belt after over 3 years as purple belt. As well as Ed, congratulations to the 2012 IMBJJ Academy Blue Belts: Rich Hill, Jurijs Lapainis, Jacek Krawczyk, Mick Griftins, Frazer Cook, Tim Clemens and Joe Pepa.
All those results in 2012 shows that, hard works pays off!
From coach Ivam Maciel and all BJJ Academy crew, have a good Christimas and great 2013!
