Five New Blues!
On Monday May 19th Tai-Kai held a belt test / promotion. The following candidates successfully passed to blue belt:
Tom Barnes, Rich D’Amico, Tim Overend, Rodrigo Clementino and Justin Flower.
To be promoted the candidates demonstrated 30 minutes of continuous technique. This included: positional escapes, sweeps, submissions, combo sweeps to submissions, submission chains, takedowns into guard passes, self-defense and self-defense against a live opponent. The candidates then performed 30-minute of live grappling against “fresh” opponents.
Congratulations to everyone!
Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Heather Beecher Stowe
