Also, Cleber presented many belt promotions, from blue to brown, to other deserving, hard working students.
Cleber spoke of how proud he was of this class of Black Belts because many of them started with him and continued to not only train, develop, & teach, but test themselves by entering competitions! Competing is one of many things Cleber continues to instill in his students, win or lose, challenge yourself, go out there & put it on the line! Cleber continued to tell those family members in attendance that a lot of BJJ students are afraid of the stage (competition), to be out there in front of everybody, with nobody able to help, thinking of failing, when in reality, once you step on that mat, you’ve already won!
