HHCF Jiiu Jitsu Team Member Patrick Ryan Gets Blue Belt!
I'm proud to share with the world that HHCF Jiu Jitsu Team Member Patrick Ryan was awarded his blue belt from Rodrigo Mendes. I knew it was coming soon. He's competed a lot this year (including the Worlds where he had a stellar submission in his first match). He also hosts the Jupiter Jiu Jitsu competitions down in Florida. For those in the chess world, Patrick had a serious role at both Chesspark and WuChess. I have a photo of him playin' RZA on tour somewhere. He's been at almost every HHCF event and we are all VERY proud of him for getting his blue, his contribution to the chess and jiu jitsu communities.
