Congrats on the new Belts!
On Saturday, May 31st Alliance Canada had a team training session which gathered our forces from Hamilton, Kitchener, Waterloo, London and all corners of Ontario. After a lengthy grappling session a handful of us were tested by Jeff and Dragan and promoted to the next level. To blue belt: Drew, Jeff aka “Hightower”, Brandon and Mike. To purple belt: Jurgen, Dave aka “Hollywood”, Kris and Anthony. To brown belt: Dean and myself. I’d like to thank our coaches for all their wisdom and support over the years, and the many more to come. Alliance Canada is amassing a small army!
Alliance at the Mundials
The BJJ Worlds (also called “The Mundials” by cool kids) goes down in a week in Long Beach California. If this years Pan Ams was any indication of things to come, Alliance will be out in force, ready to win the team championship. From Joslin’s MMA, my good friend and training partner Jack Szatko will be competing in the blue belt division. He’s, without a doubt, one of the hardest working and dedicated grapplers I’ve had the pleasure to know. Good luck, Jaku! Break a leg… er, arm!
