Russ Evans was awarded his Purple belt by Pedro Bessa at Rhondda BJJ last night. Russ has been a training partner of mine for many years and has helped me since day one set up the club.

Anyone who trained with Russ when he was with Gracie Barra and Checkmat will know this promotion is well deserved.

Russ already very good game has gone through the roof in the last 6 months thanks to the tutorage of Leo Pires and Pedro Bessa.

"Time to smash" oossssss
