Very proud to have been presented with the first place team trophy from the first Ranger Up Grappling Classic at Tuesday night class. Nick Palmisciano and Matt Phinney came by and presented it to the school.
Great job by Ranger Up to put on this event to raise awareness and donations for the Orange County Veteran Memorial.
Whenever my wife makes me meet someone new they always ask what I do for a living. I usually say something like "I work in a martial arts school," or "I teach self defense." But basically I just try to punch people in the face all day.
Special thanks to @narshnate
for helping @frenchstyle_coach230 and I to find the right picture. I appreciate you staying there and taking punches until we found the right photo.
Me siento contento y honrado de poder haber asistido al Law Enforcement Instructors Course del Campeón Royce Gracie, y poder haber compartido el tatami con gente tan profesional y amistosa de todas partes del mundo y en especial de los diferentes departamentos de policía de Oklahoma.
Gracias especiales a los buenos amigos Billy Dowey y Joe de Carolina del Norte por su amistad y hospitalidad.
We - The Emerson family - are so honored to have been chosen by Royce Gracie to host The Annual Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu Network Gathering and Black Belt Testing last week. It was a historic gathering of some of the best jujitsu practitioners and instructors in the world. Royce was smiling - so I think it went well. Thanks to Royce and the Gracie family for this wonderful opportunity. And special thanks to Lynn and Slavena for doing such a hard work to bring it together. The Emerson Family

Our first home grown black belts. Mary and Jeff successfully tested for their black belts in front of Royce Gracie and a panel of nearly 50 other black belts. This test is a grueling culmination to years and years of hard work and faithful dedication to the art of Gracie jiu jitsu.
