Roberto Cyborg promotes twenty-eight Fight Sports students at two-day graduation event
GMA Fight Sports celebrated their end of the year party and a two-day graduation ceremony on Nov. 22-23 in Miami, FL. Roberto Cyborg Abreu recently won the absolute of the prestigious ADCC in Beijing, China last month and dedicated much of his success to his students. The growth of his team and students is the product of his hard work not just in his own training but his investment in theirs.
There were twenty-eight students who received promotions from yellow belt to even black belt. On one day there was a seminar with Cyborg’s good friend Andre Monteiro with Brazilian BBQ and live music. The turn-out was great: “It’s amazing to see how much the team is growing. We had the biggest graduation I’ve seen with over 200 people on the mat! This weekend I gave out my 35th black belt,” says Cyborg.
Here are the names and belts of the promoted students:
Yellow belt: Jordan Basit, Sammy Sack
Green belt: Alexander Gavurin, Fernando Plentz, Gabriel Garcia, Ricardo Guerreiro, John Curry
Blue belt: Mike Diaz, Otto Von Schirach, Zev Benet, Tal Shemesh, Charles Conti
Purple belt: Angelina Pereira, Eli Reeves, Fernando Terry, Scot Postupack
Brown belt: Justin Brunet, Daniel Moura, Andreas Duplat, Forrest Moyano, Tony, Schneider, Jerry Mehu, Mario Escurra
Black belt: Leanna Dittrich, Gabriel Escudero
