I got to meet Albert Lim at the Bangkok tournament this past September and learned that he had competed in five consecutive events that season, placing in all and I believe most were golds. Well, besides having a great competition year, Albert gets to celebrate the new year with the opening of his own academy in Malaysia, STUDIO 23. They recently held their grand opening with public demonstrations and tour of the facility. A big congrats to Albert as I'm sure it was a considerable undertaking. Besides BJJ, the facilities offer personal training, CMD and a full dance program headed by Albert's wife.
I'm jealous of his 2nd floor mat area with it's wide open windows, I'm sure it's great during the summer time. -Luke
