SHOUT OUT: FORREST AKERS PROMOTED TO PURPLE-BELT!!!

I couldn't be happier hearing the news of my good friend's promotion to purple-belt. Last night Forrest Akers was awarded his purple-belt by Taki of Kowloon BJJ. Forrest! We've got a whipping waiting for your next visit to Bangkok. -Luke

Well, as you can tell by the number of people in the photo, it may be a few weeks before the back can handle another 100 lashings, haha! Thanks for the compliment, bro. All promotions are truly a team effort in BJJ, so I really owe it all to my team. OSU!

Cheers!
BJJ is indeed 80% team efforts.
Reminds me when I got promoted for black belt last year. The entire team was overjoyed. Sheer happiness.

Thanks to my team and of course with the help of my jiu jitsu dummy during solo practices I had.

Thank you Macau BJJ. Hey, we need to do some joint team training again soon. Been a while. Maybe this time it's our turn to go across the bay.
