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.

Blue Belt Promotion!
