We want to thank Dan Phoenix from Mass BJJ for stopping by during his vacation in Hawaii. He showed some great submission and pass details in class. Come back any time.
Grandmaster Relson Gracie stopped by to show some of his street fighting moves. Unreal.
A special holiday surprise, Emile Suehiro stops by to teach some awesome techniques. Emile started with Relson back when he was 11. Good times.
This is an interview with Matt Thornton covering methods of training in the martial arts centered specifically around Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Very good podcast and informative. Thank Springer for link.
When it comes to possessing the attributes of hard work, a love for drilling, competing and a non-stop positive attitude, AJ Mendoza is up there with the best. On Saturday, November 25th, AJ was promoted to Black Belt by Ronn Shiraki after being certified by Relson Gracie at the Grandmaster's home.
Special thank you to Dave Futa for his time and effort in helping AJ get ready for his final test. Thank you Muleke.
Words cannot express how thankful we are to have AJ and his wealth of experience in the academy. Congratulations.
Black Belt Friday the 25th:
Grandmaster Relson Semininar from 7-8 PM
Black Belt Ceremony: 8 PM
The Final Leg is here.
Our appreciation to Romolo for being a major part of bridging teams from around the pacific to compete in one location. It's a hard and sometimes a thankless job to put on these events. However, it is extremely necessary to help develop Hawaii's competitors and getting them razor sharp in a safe and orderly environment. Tournaments are always difficult yet the HTC Team has made some great adjustments. We hope everyone decides to come out.
