Congratulations to All Promotion Recipients

December 11, 2013

31 Blues, 5 Purples, 1 Brown, 4 Blacks

We just finished the Gracie Academy winter belt ceremony and it was a joyous occasion to say the least. All the Gracie Academy students gathered to congratulate the hard work and dedication of the select few who qualified for advancement to the next level. Altogether the Gracies awarded 31 blue belts, 5 purple belts, and 1 brown belt. The highlight of the ceremony was when black belts were awarded to four long time students: Sumner Matsunaga, Joe Twumasi, Sam DiMaggio, and Brian "T-City" Ortega. Thanks to everyone who came out to support the promotion recipients.
