2015 Belt Promotion – December 5th

Keep your calendars clear for the next promotions date. As always it will be held at the Santa Cruz school with a traditional lunch afterwards. Lunch location to be confirmed at a later date.

Our academy will be filled with students, family and friends sharing stories, laughter, a lot of high fives, applause and a few will be choked up and there will be tears. We will start the day with our Kids from all of our schools. The kids in our programs have worked hard, learned, trained and are beginning on their exciting paths in BJJ. They are our next generation of competitors and hopefully another generation of our Black Belts. We are proud of the dedication that each and every one of them possesses. We will move to our Adults. Recognizing the dedication and hard work of everyone from Claudio Franca and Coalition 95 students.

Everyone starts in BJJ for different reasons, but the focus that we try to pass on every day is that we want to help guide the team to becoming Black Belts in Life and in BJJ. We are so fortunate to have a team who supports each other on the mat and off the mat.

 

Congratulations to our 2014 newest Black Belts

Professor Claudio Franca awarded Black Belt rank to three long-time students during this academy’s promotion ceremony.

Master Claudio Franca awarded Black Belt distinction to Thomas Rumsey and Sawato Kawamura of Santa Cruz, and Justin Pascone of Salinas. Rumsey, 53, and Kawamura, 27, have been training under Franca for 16 years. Pascone has been training for 10 years.
