On October 27th, 2018 John received his black belt after nearly 11 years of consistent training from Jason Gagnon along side the greatest black belt of all time Cobrinha (Rubens Charles Maciel).
John looks dazed in these photos as he was overwhelmed from being awarded the rank of black belt in he described as his ‘biggest dream come true’.
Congratulations to Rico and Al for their new blue belts and an extra congratulations to everyone who received degrees on their existing belts. Together we are creating something special in Regina!
