It’s grading time again.
We are only half way done with 2019 and already so many major accomplishments. As always, the Garra BJJ family continues to grow and improve both on and off the mats. It is truly humbling to see.
Grading was a fantastic event as always with students from across our 5 locations coming together to train and be one as a team. We had our friends from BBQ Meat Lovers provide amazing catering. Which is always a treat. Of course we cannot forget the reason behind grading day which is to reward the hard work and dedication of students with new belts and stripes.
While all belt promotions are signigicant. The promotion to Black Belt is still one of the most revered in the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. With roughly 3% of students who start, reaching this level. With that in mind.
Garra Jiu Jitsu would like to congratulate its newest Black Belts. Brendan Barkeij & Matt Friend. Both dedicated students, instructors and all around amazing humans. Training Jiu Jitsu for 10 years. Matt & Brendan are the 11th & 12th Garra Jiu Jitsu Black Belts under Prof. Eduardo Dias.
Importantly, Matt Friend is the first Black Belt to be awared under Prof. Jason Miller. Jason is one of Prof. Eduardo’s longest practicing students and is the owner and head coach of Garra Lawnton.
Now let’s not forget the achievements of all the other students who were promoted with the names and belts awarded listed below.
Parabéns para todos que receberam a fixa nova!!!
