Our Prayers To The Wall Family

November 10, 2016

We Will Miss Mike

Sadly, we have recently lost one of our extended jiu-jitsu family members, Mike Wall. Mike trained at one of our UK CTCs, Marple Martial Arts, and had just completed the Blue Belt Stripe 2 test, which he passed with flying colors.

In addition to learning Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Mike was a 4th degree black belt in Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, and had dedicated over 50 years of his life to the study of jiu-jitsu.

He visited HQ in January this year, and impressed all who rolled with him with his amazingly solid base, pressure, and weight distribution! Mike was a true jiu-jitsu warrior!

Our love goes out to Mike's family and friends. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
