At the age of 50, Roger Chow was presented his purple belt by Professor Silvio Braga on Saturday 17 October 2009.
Once a Hong Kong Muaythai Champion, he started BJJ training at the age of 42, way over his athletic prime, he continued to dedicate his spare time in studying this revolutionary style of Martial Art. Roger was promoted by Thomas Fan (HKBJJ) to blue belt in 2005, he was probably one of the best blue belt around in Hong Kong at the time.
His enthusiasm on the mat to learn, to train and to help up-and-coming white belts truly inspired many of us here. He has set a good example for those what wanted to start BJJ, but they always think that they were too late……………. Well, you would never know unless one day you pick up a Gi and give it a shot.
As my mentor and my friend “Aooha! Roger!”
