Belt ceremony – congrats all! #BJJ #Triforce

Today was the second belt ceremony of the year (or was it the third?!) We all got together at the dojo and after the beginner class at 2pm Hayakawa sensei brought us all together in order to deliver the promotions. A lot of guys turned up to celebrate the big day!

Quite a few guys got promoted to blue belt, three of us got our purple belts, and Ebizo san was promoted to the lofty heights of brown belt after 8 years of training – as he said, being a full time salaryman will do that to you… 😦

After the belts were handed out we got on with some sparring, although with something like 40-50 guys ready to roll, there was a lot of waiting time – I got three fights in before I called it quits in favor of getting a shower.

From 6pm we moved to the 8th floor of the Lumine building where we had beers and food waiting for us – get in! I kind of missed the majority of the food though due to chatting with the chaps – made up for it with beer though 🙂

Beers....lots of beer

The craziness continues tomorrow with some of us driving up to Minakami, Gunma Ken to do some bungee jumping off a 52 meter high bridge – if we get through it I’ll be sure to make a blog entry!
