Andre Powell, sight impaired, achieves lifetime goal at BJJ Castle Hill.

At the end of year grading I was honoured to present Andre with his BJJ blue belt.

Andre is one of those rare people that excepts no limitations and never makes any excuses for his apparent disability. One of the kindest people I have ever met, Andre has completely transformed his life training 5 days a week for the past 18 months and is now a very focused and dedicated BJJ practitioner.
Andre executed almost perfect technique and working on feel alone was put through his paces with 25 minutes of inspiring wrestling before being awarded his new belt.
