New Black Belt, Robert Sabaruddin

Posted on October 10, 2016 by Geoff Grant

Monday 19th of September I had the great pleasure of awarding my long time student & dear friend Robert Sabaruddin with his BJJ Black Belt.
Anyone that has ever trained with Rob will attest to his amazing determination & technical ability on the mat.

Rob is an inspiration to us all, constantly raising the bar in our club, a fierce international level competitor, yet still always has time to help those in need.
Most important of all, Rob is a wonderful human being. A true martial artist, strong, loyal, humble etc.

Congratulations Rob, wear your belt with pride, you are so deserved of your new rank.

New Black Belts in Castle Hill

Posted on January 24, 2016 by Geoff Grant

I had the great pleasure of promoting long time students and friends Dave Ward and Kristoffer Nubla with BJJ black belts at our recent end of year grading.

Dave is an inspiration to all on our mat, as instructor and student alike. His tireless efforts and support to our club are testimony to his black belt character. 

Kris always brings the highest technical level and great passion to our mat. A wonderful martial artist both on and off the mat.

Dave and Kris are true black belts, dedicated athletes, generous with their knowledge and great human beings.

John Mee - new Albury/Wodonga BJJ Black Belt

Posted on January 24, 2016 by Geoff Grant

After almost 12 years of training, AWBJJ head instructor Tony Morris, with the endorsement of John Will awarded John his well earned BJJ Black Belt.

John is a central part of our club and sets the standard both on and off the mat with his attention to detail, high work ethic and ability to lead and teach. He is a pleasure to be around and summed up the BJJ journey well when he said "I guess now I've got to start all over again".

It was great to see 26 on the mat for the occasion and our club will now have 4 Black Belts regularly on the mat.

Congratulations John enjoy your new rank.

If you are a Black Belt in our organisation, we would love to have you there for this year’s Black Belt photo shoot with professor Rigan Machado - the day after the Gathering.

This year we plan to create a perfect ‘V’ (through clever use of duct tape and volunteer organisers) - with Professor Machado featuring as Head Duck!
All participants will find many uses for this great pic over the coming years.
So be a part of history … we’ll see you on the mat at Dominance - 555 Victoria St - Abbotsford - at 10am sharp - Sunday September 13th!
Bring Gi and Belt - duct tape provided!
John Will

Best respect
