On July 8th

Chainsaw takes 3rd after 2 super hard fought matches. I am sooooo proud of his performance.

His first match was with the kids in the white gi, the match ended 0-0. Neither person could score a single point or an advantage. The referee called it for the other young man.

The second match ended 2-0. Chainsaw's opponent was a very good guard player. He ended up in a triangle that he tried to fight out of but ended up going out of bounds. That is how the other kid scored 2 points.

All in all he did great!!! We have some thing to fix and work on but his next step will be as a juvenile next year.

On July 1st

So today Dan got promoted to brown belt in BJJ. We where just planing on doing a comp class before the tournament in Vegas and to all of our surprise Michael Chapman and Tracy Chapman just walk on in the door. They joined our class and helped us out with some questions. Then next thing I knew Dan was getting promoted to brown belt. Thank you to Michael and Tracy for believing in Dan. Thank you to all of our students at MWAMA for the thousands of hours of mat time and always making him work for it. Thank you to the whole Impact Jiu JItsu family for all the help and guidance. And thank you to everyone that has ever shared the mats with Dan from teams around the world. He feels truly blessed and He's still in shock of his new promotion. He will put in tons of work to grow in the belt and he looks forward to enjoying his brown belt and the life time of Jiu JItsu in his future.

All martial arts training should only be used to better ones self and as a path to higher understanding of ones self.  Martial arts should never be used with the intention of purposely seeking to cause harm to others.
