Yesterday was a very special and emotional day for a few reasons. Not only did we get to train with black belt and multiple time world champion, Giva Santana, but we also got to witness and celebrate many well deserved promotions including Siege MMA and One Jiu-Jitsu's latest BLACK belt, Claudio Rios!
Claudio was Siege MMA's FIRST ever home grown member to start with us as a brand new white belt and work his way up to black. We can't say enough good things about this guy. Always there for his teammates on and off the mats, Claudio is an incredible leader and friend. He is the is the epitome of a hard work, dedication, respect and a positive attitude. From the coaches and students, to the owners and staff at Siege MMA, we truly couldn't be happier for Claudio and couldn't think of somebody more deserving of this special black belt promotion.
Congratulations to Claudio as well as to everybody else promoted! We are all so proud! We'll see you back at the gym on Tuesday to continue through this journey we respect and love so much called Jiu-Jitsu!
