Sneaky Blue Belt Grading

Once again Professor Sean McHugh did another sneaky Belt grading. This time it's for Michelle who earned her Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Michelle has come a long way since she first walked through Alliance Kelowna's doors to attend one of our Women Empowered Self-Defense Seminars. Michelle who is legally blind fell in love with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. As well as a full-time student at UBCO, Michelle put more hours per week on the mats than any other member. This intern has won her 2 gold medals and hasn't had point scored on her in competition. She also has been smoke free for 1 and half years and was able to quit cigarettes 4 days after joining our club. We're proud of you Michelle and are excited to apart of your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey.
