Graduation and Team Growth

Sept 2018 Team Picture

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.

More than Jiu Jitsu...

team outing

When we say we are a family we mean it! Jiu Jitsu gives us the platform to better ourselves but without training partners it would be pretty difficult to make any improvements. We pride in our academy for truly having a "family environment" and our team outing really confirmed it. We all have busy lives with work, family and trying to squeeze in BJJ in between but the amount of interest we had at our team outing was truly amazing. We had around 50 students who came out and tested their bowling skills while enjoying this fun time off the mats. What's funny was just as we are competitive on the mats everyone was super competitive to bowl better than other team mates which made it even more enjoyable. See, when you register and become a student of our academy you are becoming more than someones training partner rather you are becoming our friend, brother, sister, and part of a new family. Where should our next team outing be? Can't wait because I'm sure it will be bigger, better, and more memorable.
