I just realized we have between 10-15.

I read that people in the midwest are being trained by blue and purple belts makes me realize how lucky I am to live in Sunny So Cal.

How many do you guys have regularly at you gym?
None. But one of my instructors is really close to receiving it by Dean Lister.
2ea. Both are our instructors. Both are very good and very knowledgeable.
