End of Year Rankings

We love all of our students whether they choose to compete outside the school or not. Our black belts Dylan and Jim view competition as a means of sharpening and validating their skills. You would not want the care of a doctor who does not regularly practice in the real world, they step on the national competition mats to improve and bring new ideas back to the school. Jim often says every competition adds a new skill. While they may not always win, they show up and give it their best. The IBJJF competition year is finished.


JIm Receiving his first Degree from Tank

Jim finished 15th in Black Belt Master-5 among all competitors and is the 7th rated American.



Dylan has been a black belt since July 2019. He began un-ranked and has climbed to 431/1571 Adult Black Belt competitors. Lots of work to do, but among the top 27% of adult Black Belts in our sport. These are great accomplishments. This is what they are doing, the few days a month they don't teach. We may be the new kids on the block, but we encourage you to compare our rankings to those of the other Black Belts in the area.
