Our friend Nadine Encarnation popped in for a surprise visit on her break from studying in Japan and joined us on the mats. Nadine has been a part of the academy for a couple of years now when her father brought her in to study under Brian to improve her already awesome ground game. In her absence she has finally gotten tall enough to earn blue belt rank which Brian bestowed upon her last night!
In all seriousness Nadine is already an accomplished Judoka black belt who is training in Japan with the best of the best in preparation for the Rio games. Her ground work is excellent and the promotion is well deserved!
Cheers & Congrats,
