Last Friday we had a surprise promotion just before the sparring class in Copenhagen. Tristan Regan, a long time student from Choke Århus, was in town for a short visit and was finally awarded his blue belt from Professor Joao Pedro Santos.
Tristan was supposed to be promoted during last year's graduation in Århus, but he left for a six-month internship in Japan just days before the big event. While in Tokyo he stayed active on the mats of Triforce Gym Gotanda and even competed at the IBJJF Asian Open.
He is a very talented student and a great, positive guy to be around. The promotion was very well-deserved and we look forward to seeing him develop further. Congrats!
