GMA member Rafael Lovato, Jr. is an American black belt world champion who resides in the midwest state of Oklahoma. His reach, and we’re not talking about his long arms even though they are impressive too, extends all over the world including another one of our GMA members Kabir Bath.
The brown belt in Surrey, BC runs Kaboom BJJ and after holding a seminar with Lovato, was granted with an official title of affiliate.
Rafael writes on his facebook page: “I had an awesome day teaching my seminar at Kaboom Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts today in Surrey, BC, Canada! I had a great group of students soaking up all of my techniques and giving me some great energy! At the end of the seminar, I had the pleasure to recognize Coach Kabir Bath and Kaboom BJJ as an official Lovato Jiu-Jitsu affiliate and award Kabir with his first stripe on his Brown Belt! I’ve had such a great time here in Vancouver and I really appreciate all of the hospitality I have received from the Bath family and the Kaboom students.”
Don’t miss out on his run of visits down the west coast, visiting another GMA Seaside Jiu-Jitsu next Saturday, July 20!
