A huge night for Brian Johnson and his NW Jiu Jitsu Academy in north Seattle, WA. as we promoted no less than 10 martial artists. I will write up more on my own personal journey through purple belt soon, but I wanted to take the moment to recognize the hard work and dedication of our grapplers at the premier BJJ gym in the Pacific Northwest.
Big Ben was the sole soul awarded blue belt last night. But we had a bevy of new purples including Brett Smith, Coach Bo, David C., Ivan Moran, and Joseph Montagne. Mike, Justin Guyer, Nick, and myself were awarded our brown belts on January 16, 2014.
Congrats to all on the well deserved promotions. Welcome back to the bottom of the totem poll, now get your ass back on the mat and train!
