AMAZING NIGHT of well deserved new belt promotions and black belt degrees on Monday May 24, 2021.

The night started out with a purple and brown belt promotion from Professor Bill Scott. He then awarded 10 of his black belts a new degree in rank. (He also just recently received his Certified IBJJF 4th degree rank)
All the professors made inspiring speeches to the students talking about what it means to be a black belt and the journey it takes to get there…a great listen for sure!

The time had then arrived saving the best for last promoting BJJ brown belt Rich Laboy to his well-deserved black belt!! The room was filled with loud cheers and a standing ovation!!
BJJ Shore Academy is honored to say this was the academy’s 20th black belt to date!

We couldn’t be more proud of him, the students and instructors promoted and we thank the teammates, family and friends who came out to support them!
