d3c8a859 121821 belt promotions

The Cellar Gym held our year-end BJJ belt promotions last Saturday, December 18! This was our first major Checkmat Minneapolis belt promotion event since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it was truly wonderful to see so many of our Cellar family, both new and longtime students, all together on the mats.

We were absolutely thrilled to see many of our hardworking students receive blue, purple, and brown belts! Jonathan and Alberto were promoted to blue belt. Andre, Dave, Johann, Emilie, and Francisco received their purple belts. Gao, Rob, Robbie, Ryan, and Nate were awarded their brown belts.

Congratulations to all of our new BJJ blue belts, purple belts, and brown belts! The determination and perseverance of our students over the last two years has been simply remarkable. We thank everyone for their tireless hard work and dedication, and we are honored to have our new brown belts as leaders at The Cellar Gym!
