Curtis 'Dirty Curty' Richards receives his Purple Belt
In the sport of MMA and Jiu Jitsu you meet and train with a lot of different people from a lot of different clubs, good bad or otherwise there are some you click with and not only do you look up to them as mentors, they become friends. I can name quite a few I've had the pleasure of training with but at the top of my list are a couple guy's I met when I was 14. Rowan Cunningham and Jesse Gough from Adrenaline. Today I tested for and was awarded my purple belt under Professor Rowan Cunningham. For those that dont know Rowan is the real deal, an accomplished pro MMA fighter and a professor in bjj who's standards set the bar hi for those that aspire to represent his name. I am honored and humbled to be representing Cunningham Jiu Jitsu.
