Blue Belt Promotion
Javen has been training for six years and he is finally eligible to be promoted in the “adult” belt system since this is the year he turns 16. His passion for martial arts has been pivotal in his growth and maturity on and off the mat. He is a role model for students in the peewee, kids, and juniors jiu jitsu classes. He is patient, kind, and takes time to listen. He has such an impression on some of the students that they even follow his nogi style of wearing a rash guard with gi pants. Javen is looked up to by the students he coaches as well as the parents who notice him in action.
Javen has embraced learning both skills of training and implementing jiujitsu as well as the art of teaching and leading. In addition to jiu-jitsu, he excels in his academics at Oak Ridge high school and pursues his passion in music and the language arts in his spare time.
El Dorado Hills Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense is lucky to have such an outstanding individual! Congratulations Javen!
