Congratulations to everyone who earned stripes on Monday night.
BJJ black belt Brad Wolfson came up from Soulcraft Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Hamden to teach class at ABD Norwich on Monday, March 25th.
He covered a very cool back-control maintenance technique he learned at a recent Roger Gracie seminar, and flowed into a nice bow and arrow choke he's been working lately (and which he's caught me with).
Before rolling (I had to kick everyone out at 10:20pm because no one wanted to stop sparring), Brad awarded some Norwich students with stripes.
Andy Koneiko, Jerome Wilson, Matt Zupka, and Gabe Paun with their first stripes on their white belts.
Brian Tewart and Angel Ayala with their second stripes.
Ryan "Drago" Caplet with his fourth stripe.
Everyone is training hard for Brad's New England Submission Challenge on April 6th.
