Congratulations to Fabio Gurgel on his promotion to Coral Belt!!! Repost from @fabiogurgel

Coral Belt

People have been asking me how I feel about getting the Coral Belt.

And trying to answer that question will be objective of this text.

First as in all the stripes I gained as a Black Belt the realization that I am getting older is present. Since the stripes at this stage are based on time and not exactly on merit.

Although I am getting here at the earliest possible age it does not really matter much…

I’m actually so proud to have gotten this far, I knew all I needed to do was stay alive and that one day it would definitely come because “exiting” Jiu Jitsu has never been an option since I was 15 years old, when I decided that this would be what I would do with my life..

The coral band is a symbol, represents the entry into the universe of the masters of sport, people who came before us, to whom we must always respect and express gratitude for the path that was taught…

Today I am honorably in this group with the awareness that new learning journey opens in front of me, I will do as always, my best to deserve it and honor it.

Nowadays martial arts traditions are commonly put aside, we often look at Jiu Jitsu as just a sport and where the medal is the main goal, this takes us to a dangerous path where we can see in a short time Jiu Jitsu being totally disfigured as martial art..

I am and always will be a supporter technical evolution and I am convinced that the Jiu Jitsu that is practiced today is the best that has ever existed, however, honor, ethics and moral values should never go out of style because they are the pillars of a martial artist and we cannot allow this to be in anyway put at risk, whatever is the price to be paid for it…

We will continue our support of law enforcement while always working to help our community the best way we know how: By providing critical training. Alliance Minneapolis will be offering 30 days FREE to all local and federal law enforcement. This is not a promotion. No strings. No catch. Just a belief that an officer who trains is a safe and confident officer. That in turn makes them a better officer. This is what our community deserves. This will run indefinitely. Make it mandatory.
To schedule your first session simply email: info@alliancebjjmn.com or call 952-942-1190 #makebjjmandatory #trainforlife #bjj #jiujitsu #health #fitness #community #bjjmakeitmandatory #defensivetactics #selfdefense #evolve #adapt

Posted @withregram • @andystumpf212 In an era where posting a # is considered meaningful action, I have a request for all Americans, spare me the bullshit.

9/11 changed my life in ways that I could never imagine. It changed all of our lives. It changed the trajectory of our country.

Taking five minutes to craft a #neverforget post because that is the “thing” to do today, and then returning to your life of divided, partisan, party line, argumentative, criticizing, shout down your fellow American attitude is meaningless. It’s not only meaningless, it is bullshit, and it shows that very clearly, you have already forgotten.

I have never seen or felt a greater connection to my fellow Americans than in the days after 9/11. We were caring, empathetic, and most importantly, united.

People with different opinions are not your enemy, unless you choose to make them so. Is it worth losing friends and family in an attempt to be “right?” I am embarrassed by what I see, read, and hear. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

Spoiler alert, the Rights and Freedoms of this country, which we are all so incredibly fortunate to have, apply to all American citizens, equally. Perhaps try to #neverforget that.

Instead of making a witty post, instead of “talking about it,” BE ABOUT IT. Honor the people who died 19 years ago, and all of those that have given their lives since by being a better person. Be a productive and meaningful member of our society. Be a responsible and accountable human being. Not just today because you are reminded of the events from 19 years ago, but every single day.

You will be a better person for it. We will be a better country because of it.
