Tasmania first Female Black Belt

  Congratulations to Esther for her well deserved black belt, she is the first female black belt in Tasmania and could be the only female black belt in Australia. We contacted the president of AFBJJ and he says there are no other females registered as black belt and he doesn't know any other female black belts in Australia. But the big thing is that Esther is Grand Master Wilson's first female black belt as well!
Esther started training in 2003 and since then she didn't stop, not even when she was pregnant! 
  Here is a funny story about her.  At the 2008 Australian Championship she was breastfeeding little Minol when they called her name to fight, she handed the baby to a friend to hold and rushed to the mats, then the fight was over and she went back to her Mum stuff, now thats dedication. 
This is the article from The Mercury news paper.

Congratulations Esther! Now you have the hard work to pass on your students the same dedication, discipline and loyalty.

The AFBJJ-TAS CHAMPIONSHIP was held at the Launceston University on the 25th of June. 
It's good to see people from the mainland to come and participate as well. 
Our club did pretty well and it was a good warm up for the Pan Pacific in September. 

Well done to all the Equipe Mestre Wilson Jiu-Jitsu Australia.
