Damek earned his Yellow Belt yesterday in Jiu Jitsu. So proud of him! He's been training for about a year and a half now, and in the last few months has really made a lot of progress. I love going to his classes and watching not only him, but all of the other students as well. I find it all very fascinating, and understand why martial arts are considered an art form. Damek trains at Team Fusion Academy in Salt Lake City where they teach Gracie Jiu Jitsu with an emphasis on Self-Defense.
Here's a video of Damek receiving his yellow belt from his instructor Eddie
|Damek & Eddie (the main instructor at Team Fusion Academy)|
Eddie is the main instructor, and there are also a handful of other instructors (6 in all I think) that rotate coming to help out in the classes to give one on one instruction and individual attention to the many students in the class (25+). They also have classes for young students ages 4-6 and adults. All the instructors are very knowledgeable in jiu jitsu and seem to have a passion for working with children and it shows.
