Sept 2018 Team Picture

This past Saturday Sept 15th we hosted our seminar and semi annual belt graduation ceremony with close to 150 students in attendance. Even though we were missing another 40-50% of our student body it was a huge success. We had close to 60 new students who were promoted to their respected next ranks including 7 black belts! YES 7 new black belts!! this is huge!!!

Back about 10 years ago it was actually a big deal to have 1 black belt in the academy but we are now at 10 black belts who will be training and lending a hand on a daily bases. Congratulations to ALL students who were promoted and can’t wait to see you all on the mat!

Ares Kenny Kim BJJ here in Marietta has been on a very strong and fast growth spur and we can’t be any happier! With the growth of the academy and our team we will strive to keep the quality of the classes to a maximum level and will ensure the best experience for everyone stepping on the mat here in the metro Atlanta area. Thank You all for your continued support and can’t wait to see what the next couple years will bring us.
