WHAT A WAY TO CELEBRATE: SUMMER KICKOFF PARTY AND PROMOTIONS – EXCELLENT!


The 2018 Summer Kickoff Party & BBQ hosted up at Colorado Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Stapleton on Sunday, April 29, 2018, was just about the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Colorado! Excellent Jiu Jitsu Open Mat rolling with the door open, the sun shining in, and tunes spun by our very own DJ Smurf (Steve Gonzo) followed by some well deserved (and in many cases long overdue) promotions! Brilliant. Thank you to Big Don Westman for organizing the event, and thank you to all who came out to celebrate up at Colorado Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Stapleton!
