With the end of the year comes our last Adult BJJ Belt testing. We at Lovato's School of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts would like to congratulate all our students on all their hard work & consistency throughout the 2016 year leading to their newly, well deserved ranks. Notably, we saw the addition of two new Team Lovato Jiu Jitsu Blue Belts in Ty Brookover as well as our Green Strength Coach, Luke Tirey. We are so very ecstatic about these two achieving this milestone in their lives, but the good news doesn't stop there as Professor Lovato Jr surprised a few of our advanced students with some very well deserving promotions: First, please join us in also congratulating our newest Lovato Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt, Jose Roman; our newest Lovato Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt, Robbie Walsh; & our two newest Lovato Jiu Jitsu Association Black Belts, Gabe Campbell & Paul Coffey! This is such an incredible moment in our own jiu jitsu journey as we now have 8 Lovato Jiu Jitsu Black Belts on the mats at our LJJA HeadQuarters. 

We could not be more proud of all our students & long time friends for earning these new ranks, & we look forward to all the progress as well as success for these people in the 2017 year!
