This was the vision when we were thinking of moving into our own dedicated dojo.
We could of gone with photos of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu c0-founder elder Helio Gracie and Judo founder Dr. Jigoro Kano but how cool would that be? Kind of cool.
One day Coach Radhames (Me) and Sensei Brett we’re talking about the future like we often do in our down time. I really liked the idea of what Shyoroll Studio’s had with the Christ the Redeemer.
How cool would it be to have something similar with the founder. Brett said, “Kano”, I said “Helio”.
Brett went and spoke to Bob The Painter, the man behind Sensei Brett’s painting skills. Bob came up with the concept you see in the photo.
It took some time but finally it was done and it was the coolest thing I had ever seen.
It took Sensei Brett and Bob The Painter many hours to complete the mural.
Let us know what you think! And if you’re from Rhode Island or anywhere else feel free stop by make sure to take a selfie with the founders!
Promotion’s last night:
Eric Holtzman to blue.
Antonio to Orange.
Logan to Yellow.
So much growing up happened before these belts. Super proud and pumped for everyone’s future on and off the mats.
Can’t believe this already my 3rd installment in our video release for all of June!
Let me know if you have any questions!
All June long in response to the climb in temperatures we will be doing nogi. Further, this part of the year in Jiu-Jitsu competition is typically nogi.
I like to call it nogi season. =)
