HHCF Founder Given Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Jiu Jitsu Master and www.onthemat.com Co-founder Alan "Gumby" Marques and HHCF Founder Adisa Banjoko
Today I was given my purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from my instructor and friend Gumby. It was a shock. I've been working hard lately. But I did not expect it. I want to take a minute to thank him for the honor. For me to receive a belt from a man of his skill and character means more than I can truly say. I'd like to thank all my brothers on the mat through the years. On the real were it not for my boy Jaime Lapena- I'd never even know jiu jitsu at all. He must have seen how much I sucked at Eskrima and just wanted to give me a fighting chance in this world. LOL...God & my wife gotta getta extra shout. Much love.
