Congratulations to All BJJ Students Who Received a Belt Promotion!
Posted on April 30, 2019 in Academy News, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Over the past few weeks, a number of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students at 5 Star Martial Arts have been promoted to the next belt level by Professor Shawn Williams. Each of these students earned their well-deserved promotions as they grew as martial artists on and off the mats through their hard work, persistence, character, and discipline. Each of these students have overcome challenges and obstacles over the years to continue their training including having managing their careers, family obligations, and other life events.
Training BJJ is a very humbling and rewarding experience with many peaks and valleys including learning new techniques through repeated drilling and testing in live training situations, feeling the pressure of training with more technically advanced and larger students, and dealing with the stress of competing in some of the biggest grappling competitions in the world.
By getting advancing past these challenges, each of these students have gotten physically and mentally stronger on the mats and in their everyday lives. They are able to find time for family, work and training. They are able to stare down and overcome adversity in school or the office. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the best activities one can do to really learn about life and unleash their human potential. Please give a big congratulations to everybody who was recently promoted.
