We Have A Purple Belt!

Congratulations Robert Domenech on becoming Zoo BJJ’s first purple belt promotion! Rob’s actually gotten a stripe put on that belt now, but he is no less deserving of finally getting some recognition.

Rob’s been training martial arts longer than a lot of us have even been alive, and his experience, patience, and all-around good-guy demeanor have been a tremendous asset to our team!

Thanks for training with us Rob, and we look forward to having you around for a long time!!

Our First Purple Belt!

Our First Purple Belt!

Lauren Wolfe, Blue Beast

The belts just keep coming! Well, actually, it’s been a bit, but Lauren Wolfe deserves the recognition all the same. This pic below was taken in late August at the IBJJF tourney in Las Vegas.

I can’t think of many other people so deserving of their promotion. Lauren has been a fierce training partner, and a class act off the mat!

She’s also got two MMA fights under her belt, with one of them a stone-cold KO victory!

A huge (super belated) congratulations, Lauren!



Congratulations Gus, our latest blue belt!

A HUGE congratulations goes out to Gus Seward, our latest belt promotion!

Gus actually received his belt after the Helena tourney (yep, I’m playing a bit of catch-up here), and he truly deserves it.

Gus has been a tremendous teammate and a super great guy to train with.

Congratulations again Gus, sorry for the delay, and keep on training!

Great job, Gus!

Great job, Gus!
