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!!
