Congrats, Dean Macumber! December 2023's Student of the Month!

Congratulations, Dean Macumber! December 2023’s Student of the Month!

13-year-old Dean started his Jiu-Jitsu journey early in 2020 in our 8-11-year-olds’ Program. He followed the footsteps of his older sister, Audrey, who was a force to be reckoned with on the mat for several years.

At first, Dean was very reserved while in class and still discovering his body’s capabilities. He has always been a kind, well-mannered student who aims to please and doesn’t want to disappoint.

In June of 2023, Dean earned his Yellow Belt after having put in consistent work, and the TRANSFORMATION was underway!

From that day forward, he has been more consistent, focused, diligent worker, confident, skillful, and aggressive in matches, and he is developing friendships on the mat.

Dean is a classic story of one of the superpowers of Jiu-Jitsu, CONFIDENCE! If one doesn’t give up, stays consistent, trusts the system, embraces the coaching, and puts in the time, the MAGIC HAPPENS!

Great job, Dean! We are proud of you!
