Congrats New Blue Belts, Purple Belts, and New Stripes

Tai Kai Belt Ceremony 5/19/12

On Saturday May 19, 2012 from 12:00 PM-2:00 PM, Tai Kai had a Belt Test/ Ceremony. We had 8 new Purple Belts, 8 New Blue Belts, along with a slew of stripes. There were students there from Tai Kai, Jiu Jitsu Nation, and CNYMMA. New Blue and Purple Belts had to demonstrate techniques including, Takedowns, Sweeps, Guard Passes, and Self Defense. We then had one big grappling session with Purple Belts having to stay in for at least 30 minutes with a new partner every minute. Congrats to all new Belts and Stripes
