Goodbye to Our Jiu-Jitsu Brother Joe Twumasi

Feburary 5, 2016

Join us for the Joe Twumasi Respect Roll on Wednesday, February 17th

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved jiu-jitsu brother Joe Twumasi. Besides being an exemplary student, Joe's thunderous laugh and unmatched enthusiasm made him loved by everyone who knew him, on and off the mat. Joe is survived by his son, Jarvis, whom we will proudly be sponsoring with a lifelong membership to the Gracie Academy, so that he may continue the jiu-jitsu legacy left behind by his father.

Joe Twumasi Respect Roll: Wednesday, February 17 @ 6:30pm
To celebrate Joe's life, we will be having a special roll session for Joe on February 17th at 6:30pm during the regularly scheduled Master Cycle class. We look forward to seeing you there.
