Congrats to Sy Kageyama and DS Sohn on their promotion to Purple Belt - - prime examples of dedication, hard work, consistency & good attitude.  


Congrats to all those that received their hard earned belt promotions last month. First on the list, and always a special moment when someone receives their Black Belt, because you know it is at least 12-15 years in the making - GILSON SOUZA (3rd f/R).  Next on the list are our Brown Belts - Ryan Young (2nd f/L), Chris West (3rd f/L) and Ahmed Diallo (2nd f/R), followed by long overdue Purple Belts to Dr. Lloyd Hataishi (1st f/L) and Erik Magrinho (R). We also had a number of Blue Belts that were well deserved and I apologize for not having names or photos at this time.

Congratulations to all BFJJ students on their recent belt promotions. From Blue, Purple, Brown to Black, each was hard earned and well deserved.

All belt promotions at BFJJ come few and far between, and Black Belt promotions come even fewer and farther; that said, 2007 was a special year as BFJJ promoted three special and well-deserved individuals to Black Belt: Sidney Silva, Ermin Fergerstrom and Trevor Burnell.

With a new Brown Belt in hand, Dylan Clay's (center) next accomplishment was first round stoppage over MMA veteran Ronald "Machine Gun" Jhun at X-1 in Honolulu, May 2008.
