Today was the first day of classes for our new academy and the energy was through the roof! We had well over 75 students in our evening classes. It was a great night to kick off the new place, and celebrate some promotions!

We have four new purple belts to announce! Huge congrats to Dan "The Pool Guy" Astarida, Ryan Owens, Dan "DVD" Calise, and Abe Finkler. All four of these guys represent exactly what we would expect from each and every one of our students. They work incredibly hard and never want to leave the mats! They have showed fantastic strides in their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and are destined to reach the top.

Also, big thanks to Persian Nick for playing a huge role in finishing up the work needed to have this academy open for training.

Check out some of the pics below of the night's events.
