Hobart Martial Arts Academy's newest Blue Belt

Dahlia Foo is one of the most exceptional people I have ever met. She is hard working, dedicated and commited to her values. She shows intellect and creativity in her studies and her training.

Dahlia's commitment to her studies keep her in the field (and out of the gym) for long periods at a time, but despite that her promotion to Blue Belt is long overdue.

Congratulations Dahlia, you are an inspiration!

New Black Belt for Tasmania

On Saturday the 15th of October Gerry Young of Hobart Martial Arts Academy was promoted to Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu by his coaches Thiago Stefanutti and Adam Newton.

Gerry completed three hours of straight grappling with all of his students and training partners as part of this process. Thanks to everyone for sharing in what was as much a group achievement as an individual one.

Blue Belt for Wong

Hobart Martial Arts Academy student Huan Wen Wong has put in the hard work for several years now and has worked his up to the level of Blue Belt. Despite being the smallest guy on the mat and being very busy with full time University studies, Wong has still managed to put the time in on the mat and to even supplement his training with Judo.

The epitome of hard work and dedication, it is an absolute pleasure to promote Wong!

Congratulations my friend!
