September Promotions

The Academy opened it’s doors exactly 5 months ago today, and students are beginning to apply Gracie Jiu-Jitsu fundamental to their game.

RECENT NEWS: Three promotions have been awarded this month: Frank Stevens promoted to Blue Belt on September 12th, Edwin Wandemberg and Steve Dahn  earned a stripe on their blue belts on September 14th. It takes motivation, dedication, and lots of hard work to earn a new belt or stripe.

At Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu St. Augustine, students are tested for promotions everyday when they step on the mats.  Students must earn their promotions!  We do not run a “belt factory”and we do not charge belt testing fees.  A student must meet certain standards before being promoted, and earning a new belt or stripe is dependent upon how many hours a student trains and their personal potential.  It does not matter if the student goes to competition, if they have determination, sportsmanlike attitude, and focus before they even step on the mats they will succeed.
