    It was really great to see all the hard work Brian put in for an art he truly loves finally pay off. I've been training with Brian since May 2005 and was really glad I could be there for him on such an important day.

    Travis Neagle is also a Rob Kahn Black belt, never met him but heard he has sick jiu jitsu. He got his belt before Arroyo.

    That's why I asked how many he has promoted. I'm sure your a stud on the mats. Congrats on all the hard work and dedication!!!

    Brian should go back into his old office job and rub that black belt in everyone's face.

    Actually there are 4: Garcia, Travis Neagle, Matt, and now Brian.

    And he has a few seriously bad-ass brown belts who probably would have been promoted by now by a lot of other instructors.
