Professor Eliot Guest Teaching
We were so fortunate to have Professor Eliot Marshall guest instruct on April 15th. His message was very deep and influenced many of our members to speak about mental health. Additionally, he spoke about how Jiu Jitsu has changed and saved the lives of many Easton members. Read Caroline’s article for an in-depth synopsis on Professor Eliot’s class here.
In House Tournament
We had such a great time at the In-House tournament on April 20th! This was the biggest In-House tournament we have ever had, and we are so fortunate that so many of our students competed. Great job to everyone who put themselves out there on the mats, and thank you to everyone who came out to support.
