On receiving his brown belt tonight. Liborio came up from Coconut Creek tonight and awarded Mario his brown belt. Both Liborio and Din gave a speech about Mario. It was awesome. He was made to run the gauntlet while we all whipped him with our belts. It was great fun.

For a big guy, Mario is very technical. I was watching him roll after class and he was hitting all sorts of moves and subs. He looked really smooth and decisive. His game is really good as far as I (a lowly blue belt) can tell.


WAR Big Hurt!!
 
Congrats to Big Hurt!

On a similar note, Ryan G at ATT WPB just got his purple belt yesterday from Marcos Damatta.
 
Nice. I don't know him though. Have any stories or vids?

None of Ryan but here is a new one of Marcos. Ryan is one of the most technical guys that I have ever rolled with though. Enjoy.
