(l to r: Taki & Sexy-Hoin)Kowloon BJJ is proud to announce three recent belt promotions for club members.
Firstly, Matthew, after two first place competition finishes (Taiwan Tourney and the Philippines White-belt Comp.), was awarded a well-deserved blue-belt after just under a year of hard, and we do mean 'hard', training. Matthew has been the first on and last off the mat for a while now, and the dedication is really paying off. Congratulations, Matthew!
Sebastian has been training for just over a year and a half now, splitting his time between the Delariva Academy of France and Kowloon BJJ. Sebastian received his promotion after an impressive 1st place finish in the recent Philippines whitebelt competition, winning three of his four matches via submission! Great job, Sebastian.
Lastly, the KLN-BJJ stalwart, Hoin, finally received a long-awaited and well-deserved purplebelt. Hoin has been training for around four years, and with the exception of the typical time-off periods for injuries, has continued to train hard and consistently. Hoin recently grabbed 3rd place in the bluebelt absolute division of the FBT Open in Bangkok. Anyone there will agree that with the massive size of some of the competitors, that was no easy feat indeed for a guy who clocks in at just under 70kg! Well done, Hoin. And great photo. Oh, the ecstasy of promotion....
