What a great day at the Roll for Hope in house tournament! Everyone stepped on those mats, gave it their all for a great cause. I’m proud of everyone, especially the kids (some serious talent out there!) that came and represented for their teams! Thank you to all the coaches and parents for your hard work and dedication to these kids and the sport!
Courage and heart …. that’s what these guys showed by the boat load today. Win or not they concurred the mat and walked away better then they came. To be able to witness even a small part of their journey is an honor.
What a wild day. I received my blue belt (ignore the stripe) from Master Renato Tavares Bjj before competing at the in house tournament for Roll 4 Hope and winning both matches with a submission. Despite the look on my face, I couldn’t be any happier, it still doesn’t feel real. Jiu Jitsu has done so much for me and I’ve met so many great people because of it, many people I would consider family. Thanks to all the people that have gotten me to this point: Renato Tavares Bjj, Suraj Budhram, Mike Wester, Melissa Bentley, Dustin Martin, Shaughn Koukos, Fabricio Bicudo Bjj, Hemerson Ricardo Navarro, Thaisio Feliz, Jacob Kim, Jeremy Lloyd (thanks for letting me borrow the belt), Benjamin Porch, Dinesh Erram, Danny Tat, Joaquin Donesfor introducing me to jiu jitsu in the first place, all the coaches that have done the seminars, all the people I’ve ever rolled with, my parents for putting up with my hangry fits before tournaments. There’s so many people to thank and I know I’ll feel bad later for leaving people out but you all make up every fiber of this blue belt and I look forward to this next chapter.

Legacy Sebastian kids did an awesome job today at the tournament really proud of all of you

Noah took double gold. I took silver. #RollForHope                             Was great seeing so many new competitors in the kids divisions. And was really fun competing against a couple of really tough teammates. It is really cool to feel the pressure and technique that is being taught at all the different division of our Academy. Each instructor has a unique way of teaching and it really opens your eyes to all of the different aspects of this sport. So blessed to call you guys family.

And also congratulate everyone that stepped on the mat and competed today I am so proud of each and everyone of y’all..
You guys showed true warrior spirit.
