Grading day and Tyson's farewell

On the 28th April we had our new club very first grading.
It was a great day and congratulations to:
Minol Jr. for his Grey/White belt,
Ally, Ali, Liam, Leigh and John for their blue belt.
John who is Tyson's dad came from Sydney
and he is our affiliated club there, 
so if you guys go to Sydney for something be sure to pay a visit there. 
It's great to see that our club is expanding in Australia.

(check our facebook page for the video)




Tyson and his Dad John

It was all happy news for some who got graded but we also had to say good-bye to one very special student: Tyson Pedro.
Tyson has been with us for a year and a bit and he is an Australian Army Officer.
He achieved many things with us and won some important comps as well.
Unfortunately the Army posted him to Brisbane so he can continue his mission there. 
The good news is we (Master Wilson and Minol) gave permission for Tyson to take classes under EMWJJA even though he is a blue belt (and a very good one). 
He went away but still part of this club!

Good Luck on your new journey Tyson! 
And come visit us as much as you can.

Equipe Mestre Wilson Jiu-Jitsu Australia - Melbourne HQ

Our new club in Melbourne its nearly ready! We have come a long way, thinking when we started and how the club looks now, there is a big difference.
Let's see the "evolution".

The place.

Building the partition wall

Partition wall and boxes (storage/seats on the left side under the mirror) ready and temporary mats down.

Our first training, still waiting for our mats to arrive we had to train on a area about 4x6m.

 Painting the place.

Red and Black Flamengo colours (soccer team in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil)

Half of the mats down, 100 sqm!

EMWJJA just want to say thank you to all the students who made this possible and supported this club from the beginning and I'm sure our team is much stronger now and we are like a big family.
Especial thanks to: Sharneet, Toni, Alex and Ali.
