3 New Black belts at the Academy Hq

On Sunday the 26th of November 2017, The Eddie Kone academy of Jiu-Jitsu had its winter belt ceremony with over 50 students in attendance.

Professor Eddie Kone and his panel of black belts and assistants tested Mr Liam Wandi, Mr Shukie Lok and Mr Shaun Escoffery on both the technical, philosophical and mental aspects of jiu-jitsu. ( The Black Belt Exam).

At the end of the exam which lasted 5, hours all 3 students were promoted to the rank of Black Belt.

Also promoted were,

Mr James Gregory was promoted to the rank of red bar on his black belt.

Mr Zaid Williams was promoted to the rank of Brown Belt.

other academy students were also promoted to both the rank of Purple and Blue Belts.

To us at the Eddie Kone academy of jiu-jitsu, the coveted Black Belt symbolizes much more than a belt change, it symbolizes friendship, hard work, and our commitment to upholding the values of jiu-jitsu.

Congratulations to everyone who was promoted Your success is a reflection of your hard work and daily dedication to your study of jiu-Jitsu, its values & its philosophy.

Big thank you to Black belt Mark Bottom who travelled to assist us with the examination process.

and also thank you to Mr Seymour Yang ( Meerkatsu) & Mr Miad nadjafi who were also in attendance.

below are some pics from the graduation day.

Grand Master Relson Gracie 1st London Visit.

relson_orig
It’s with great pleasure that we can announce
Grandmaster Relson Gracie’s first UK visit to the Eddie Kone Academy of
jiu-jitsu.
Saturday 7th October
Sunday   8th October
Price to be confirmed.
Spaces limited.

Relson is the second oldest son of Helio Gracie, who along with Carlos Gracie, is credited for innovating the Kodokan Judo taught by Mitsuyo “Count Koma” Maeda into what is now known as Gracie or “Brazilian” Jiu Jitsu.

Relson began learning the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu at the age of two, began competing at the age of ten, and earned his black belt when he was 18.

He went 22 years undefeated as the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu National Champion. Although Relson’s techniques are deeply rooted in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Relson also emphasises “street effective” techniques. Relson’s Jiu-Jitsu has evolved to help defend yourself in survival situations where there are no rules.

On April 7, 2013, Relson was promoted to the rank of grandmaster (red belt) the highest possible belt awarded to living individuals in Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

This weekend just past saw rising star Terry ( Dominator ) Claim the Londsdale ww BAMMA Tittle from an opponent who boasted a record of 16-1-0.

This match had the makings of being the main event, Brazier who was a heavy under dog in this bout not only showed his heart and his ability to absorb shots, but also showed how professional he was throughout this whole build up to this match.

Brazier has been learning jiu-jitsu under the watchful eye of  Professor Eddie Kone and the team at Eddie Kone Academy of jiu-jitsu London for his past four fights.

Still only a white belt Brazier now has his eyes set on stepping his game up and claiming a world title.
