Wednesday, February 10th, was a special day for Ricardo Guimaraes, head coach of GB Temecula and GB Hemet, in California. That was when he promoted his first two black belts.
Adam Figurski, an instructor at Hemet, and Jordan Blanchard, who teaches in Temecula, were the happy ones.
Guimaraes had a lot to say about both: “Adam has been training under me since I opened GBT back in 2002 and he is my main guy at the GB Hemet location. Jordan has had a long BJJ carer that started in 1995. Jordan won the Nationals in 2009 and got 3rd at the International Master and Senior in Rio also in 2009.”
