We had an amazing seminar by Professor Andre Galvao today. It is always a privilege and honor to share the mat with him and learn from him. He dropped some incredible knowledge about Jiu Jitsu, competing and life. He truly embodies courage and leading by example through serving and treating everyone with integrity.
Congratulations Professor Josh Pike on receiving his black belt today. This is a huge milestone accomplishment. The end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Here’s to a mind blowing new season.
A special shout out to our affiliates. To Professor Louis Armezzani and the Armezzani Jiu Jitsu crew, Professor George Wehby and the Lionheart Jiu Jitsu crew, and Coach Heriberto and the 804 JIu Jitsu RVA crew for making the drive/flights here from such long distances. To Professor Jeff Gordon and Infinite Fighting Concepts for hosting. And The Winchester Jiu Jitsu Academy for coming out to represent so well as always.
Thanks to every single one of our students whom made it out today; for your support, commitment and trust in what we do and making this such a special BJJ community and family. There are no words to describe how grateful we are to each of you. You all make this truly a special place.
