Another fantastic week at Haven! Longtime friends and training partners Zac Maneri and Dickie White were long overdue for a promotion. We were honored to promote them both to Brown Belt. In addition, Jeremy Ferris, Stacy Ryan, and Johnny Bacon all received a fourth stripe on their white belts. Finally, Haven was happy to announce our first affiliate under the tutelage of Jerry Martin, a Haven Jiu Jitsu blue belt. Haven Jiu Jitsu Geneva is now at the Finger Lakes Martial Art Center.
What else? Thanks to all of you, Haven was able to exceed 100 members! Whether you helped support this growth by bringing in friends and family, or went out of your way to welcome visitors, we appreciate all of you for helping us to build this wonderful community.
A very special thanks to Haven Jiu Jitsu member, Chris Green, for sponsoring a self-defense clinic for Central New York real estate agents. If you are or know a realtor who may be interested, visit https://cgreeninspection.com/events/ and follow the directions to sign up for the free clinic.
In the classes this week we covered:
- Tripod to smash pass
- Back take to chalupa from crucifix
- Review overhand right defense from standing
- Full closed guard pass
I am so grateful for all the continued support of OUR gym. There are more affiliate announcements on the horizon. Keep up the amazing work everyone!
