GMA member Stephen Roberto of Purebred Jiu-Jitsu Guam is leading his team to be better every single day.
Over the years they have formed and adapted and evolved to become one of the best teams in Asia, as proven by their individual and team results at the IBJJF Asian Open in Tokyo, Japan every year.
As part of the end of year celebration, as is custom in a lot of the academies, there were belt promotions.
Perhaps most significant were the promotions to black belt–all three. The students promoted were Rob Gutierrez, Mark Pangilinan and Joe McDonald.
Stephen says, “They are great defenders of Jiu-Jitsu and long time practitioners. Well deserved and long overdue. They’ve been training for over 12 years together. A super proud moment.”
