What a great graduation ceremony this past week!
Last Wednesday, The Armory had one of its largest graduation ceremonies in its 10 year history. Head Black Belt Marcelo Cohen hosted a great event that was highlighted by more than a dozen graduating students from our Jupiter facility, as well as the very first graduating students from our facility in Jensen Beach.
First-time graduates were recognized for their efforts and ability to demonstrate the strong foundations that are required in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Our advanced students were also recognized for their continued success on the mat in the academy, as well as bringing home trophies and medals from tournaments
The Youth Program continues to be one of our most popular programs. The “Mat Rats” program has been fantastic in bringing our “very young ones”, ages 4 and 5, up to speed and prepare them to take part in the full BJJ classes at 5pm everyday.
As Marcelo so eloquently discussed during the ceremony, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu isn’t just a sport or activity in itself. It builds character, confidence, helps with focus in school and provides our children with a real sense of self-respect and discipline.
We are so proud to have the most successful Youth Program in the Palm Beach area! Much thanks to our students and especially the parents that make it happen.
