There are many proud moments that I can point to in my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Career. My Black Belt promotion, my first IBJJF Medal, and cornering at UFC 96 are on the list. But, what will rank very high is my first Black Belt Promotion. As a coach and ambassador of the sport, what I want most is for my students to flourish in this art and to pass it along to the next generation. To graduate a member of my team to Black Belt is the pinnacle of our art and a portal to the next journey that awaits.
Congratulations to Paul Bartholet.
