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.
