In addition to Josh receiving his 3rd stripe from Mestre Luiz Palhares, he also had the honor of graduating two new black belts among our ranks. Junior Dennis and Joe Dibble both have over a decade of training. Junior has beaten cancer and came back from back surgery to still actively train weekly. Junior is loyal to a fault having never stepped foot on another mat to train Jiu-Jitsu. Joe has been training consistently for 12 years. The only break I recall was a 4-wheeler accident back in 2006 I believe. Finally, Our old friend and training partner, Dave McMaster received his 1st stripe on his black belt! We have now produced 6 black belts!
