SHOUT OUT!!! NEW BLACK-BELT!!!

It is with great pleasure that I share with everyone the promotion to black-belt, Adam Shahir Kayoom by Ricardo Liborio of ATT. Adam's connection to Prof. Liborio goes way back to his time in Brazil with BTT, having received his purple-belt from Mario Sperry. Since leaving Brazil, Adam continued his training with Gracie Humaita (Sydney) and received his brown-belt after having won state championships twice over from Bruno Panno. Shortly after, Adam left for Thailand to pursue his ambitions in Muay Thai and holds several titles such as 2-time WPMF Champion, representing Jitti Gym in Bangkok.

Adam returns to Bangkok later this month as head instructor of Bangkok BJJ after 3 months of teaching Muay Thai at ATT (Florida, USA).

I'm sure I speak for all of Adam's students in sharing how proud we are of his promotion and how excited we are to welcome him back home as Thailand's first resident black-belt.
