Saulo Seminar and Promotions

In basketball, you shoot hoops with Michael Jordan. In soccer you kick the ball around with Pele. In hockey you play with Wayne Gretzky. And in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you share the mat with Saulo Ribeiro. 

Saulo Ribeiro was joined by black belts Chris Blanke (Toledo) and Danny Agemy (Detroit) and gave another one of his legendary seminars to a packed house at the academy. Saulo was able to impart his inspiration, wisdom and knowledge of technique executed at the highest possible level. 

Following the seminar, Saulo took time to reflect on his history with our club and our founder Dean Hersche and his trying run at the 2012 IBJJF Master and Senior World Championship which he dedicated to him and the club. 

Finally, at the end of the night, Saulo promoted three members of the club to their new ranking. Adam 'Smitty' Baillargeon and Steve Strong were both promoted to the rank of Purple Belt. And our Head Coach and Instructor, Eric Marentette was promoted to the rank of Brown Belt.  In addition to the new rankings, Saulo also awarded a Silver Star to Eric Marentette, Adam 'Smitty' Baillargeon and Miss Loree for their continued support and pursuit of excellence under the Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu flag. 

Tecumseh Jiu Jitsu was honoured to have Saulo come and teach and we hope that he will come back again soon!




Newly Ranked, Smitty, Steve and Eric!
