TAIWAN BJJ: NEW PURPLE!!!

Another well deserved promotion comes to us from Taiwan BJJ. Jon Jones who's been a dominant force on the competition scene for the heavy and absolute divisions in both gi and no-gi is now a purple-belt. Anyone that's seen Jon in competition knows how much heart this guy brings with him and can never be counted-out. Congratulations Jon! -Luke

from TWBJJ web:
Jon was presented his purple belt on behalf of all of Taiwan BJJ by Warren Wang, and brown belts Makoto Ogaswara and Chris Ng on October 16, 2009. Jon placed first in the absolute blue belt gi and no-gi divisions in the 2008 FBT Thailand BJJ/Grappling Open and came in third place in the elite no-gi >80kg division at the 2009 FBT Thailand BJJ/Grappling Open. Taiwan BJJ now counts four purple belts among its ranks!

Congrats Jon.

Makoto, Chris and Jason are great instructors, you should be proud to wear their purple.

Having gone 0-3 against Jon as a blue belt, I would like to formally lodge a protest against his promotion to purple, which is already tough enough without him! - Scott
