Congratulations to Joe Gemma, Newest JCBJJ/MMA Lab Brown Belt

It was a great night tonight at the Lab!  Joe Gemma,  long time student at the Lab, received his well deserved brown belt.  Joe is an avid competitor, competing in virtually every tournament in Arizona over the last 4 years.  In addition to local tournaments, Joe has traveled to compete in the Pans and, most recently, the Masters/Seniors World Championships.  Joe has won his fair share of  medals at purple belt, but he saved his best for last as he went through a tough bracket and came home with the silver medal.  We are so lucky to have Joe as a teammate and a friend, and could not be more proud.  Way to go Joe, looking forward to the future!
