Christine is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt!!!

On April 5, Smash Gyms Head Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Instructor, Michael Jen, awarded Christine Ho the rank of blue belt. Christine joined Smash Gyms last year upon seeing the dominating performance by our team members at the San Jose BJJ Open Tournament that won us the team trophy for the event. Though Christine had some grappling experience, she opened herself up to learning a completely new system from scratch and began to make phenomenal progress.

Big congratulations to Christine. The promotion is well deserved. Christine is generally very serious during training so it was nice to see her with a huge smile for the rest of class. 🙂

Christine helps teach the Smash Gyms Women's BJJ class on Sundays at 10am!
