So Friday the 24th August I received my BJJ Brown Belt from John B Will/Danny Weir I would like to thanks everyone along the journey who has helped me along the way. My wife and family for putting up with my martial obsession, without your support nothing is possible. I first met JOHN at David Suker’s gym (he was promoted to purple that night, now a black belt) and JOHN invited me attend his DCAT course where I met Danny, well since then they both have encouraged and coached me along the way, seminars, comps etc. with Danny’s encouragement I started the gym in Goulburn and affiliated to Will/Machado years ago. I now enjoy many friendships because of that decision and cherish them all@and the journey. Thanks to all my team mates in particularly @bumper__f @floopmadman who pretty much have been with me since the inception of bjj at our club. Without you all my journey would have been a lot harder. Thanks to all my members your support and friendship is why the grind is so enjoyable. Many thanks and see you on the mats #willmachado #rcjmachado #brazilianjiujitsu #jits #teamgmaa #gmaa #jitslife #willmachado
Joel recently visited the city of churches. Adelaide played host to Diamondback FC where Joel was able to get back into the cage after an extended lay off. Joel was able to come home with his first ever win via submission with a slick performance finishing in guillotine.
congratulations Joel and all the team mates and coaching staff at GMAA... let’s go champ!
Term starts tomorrow with normal timetable.
We have a new attendance system, we will have a tablet on the bench as you walk in. all you need to do is scroll and find your or your child's names and, click and it will enter your into the class.
This will allow me to keep track of how many classes you have had prior to grading.
I will also need a photo of each member for the system.
