Promotion and Free Seminar photos

It was an awesome honor and privilege to promote a number of our students up to their next belt and stripe rank yesterday at our first official Promotion ceremony. We started with an hour long Self Defense Seminar for beginners and followed with an hour long Team Training session wherein those promoted stayed on the mat with no breaks while all of their teammates (and myself ๐Ÿ™‚ came in fresh, one after the other and tested their Jiu Jitsu. I’m super proud of how well everyone performed and more importantly the endurance and mental fortitude demonstrated during the testing. I’d like to give special thanks to Val and Kalid for inviting everyone back to their beautiful home after for BBQ, to Phil Migliarese for sending the new official Balance Studios belts to mark the occasion, to Debbie and our student Forrest for taking wonderful photos of the group and to our student Naomi for bringing an awesome group of friends. I’m very much looking forward to witness everyone continued progress and I can’t wait to help everyone break in their new belts! โœŠ๏ธ๐Ÿฅ‹๐Ÿ‘
