    This was a special year for our school. We moved in a new biger place, we had lot's of trouble and setbacks but eventually everything starting to get better. We had a great seminar with Marcelo "Uirapuru" Azevedo (Draculino team Black Belt) and the head instructor of our school Cristo K. Markes got promoted to his Black Belt after 15 years since he first started training in BJJ. Im the guy reading the Letter Draculino wrote for the promotion since it was the first time he couldn't come for the Annual seminar becouse he just opened a new school in Houston Texas and moved to the US. This is basically the First BBelt promotion in Greece.

    Great stuff!

    Huge accomplishment for your instructor and equally great for BJJ in Greece. Good to see more and more homegrown BB in Europe!

    Good luck with the new gym, it looks awesome!
