The happiness of when you hear your partner’s hand slap the mat rapidly. When people think of therapy they think of.. 4 walls. 2 chairs. Deep conversation. Someone writing your thoughts down. But no. Not me. I have to have… The sweat. The blood. The adrenaline. The frustration. The chokes. The guards. The throws. The bruises. The burns from the mat. The unspoken bond and trust between you and your partner. The satisfaction of knowing you’re helping someone hone in their skills and of them helping you.

It was a pleasure to promote Trey Robinson to Blue Belt last night. Trey is one of several young men who have came up thru my youth program. He started with me back when he was only 9 years old.  He just turned 16 this past Monday.

We had a great Gustavo Machado seminar this weekend at White Tiger Academy in Valdosta. To top off a great seminar, we had Scott Ferguson get his purple belt and Matthew Smith receive his blue belt!      

Congratulations to Andy for his first stripe!  The hard work is paying off!  We are also proud of (L to R) Scott, Jason, Colton, and Jay, who each received stripes on their belts last night.  Great class fellas, keep up the hard work.

Congratulations to Randy Hunt on receiving his well deserved BJJ Blue Belt!

Americus Martial Arts Academy students show up to show their support for Gustavo Machado and White Tiger on Febuary 7, 2015.  Great seminar by Guga!

We had a good class on Tuesday.  I hope to see everyone on the mats soon!
