I. Congratulations to August Wallén of Goteborg, Sweden
Congratulations to August Wallén! He won his first Vale Tudo fight on
Saturday, May 6, 2006, at European Vale Tudo 6 "Ragnarök" in
Stockholm, Sweden. His fight was against Paulo Boiko, a BJJ black belt
from Brazilian Top Team with 8 prior professional vale tudo fights.
August won a very tough fight by rear-naked-choke, 3 minutes into
the third round.
II. Lifetime memberships ending soon
Since January of 1997, the Harris Academy has made lifetime
memberships available to its members. For a one-time investment of
$3000 to $4000, a person can train unlimited classes for the rest of
Well, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.
Beginning in August, the lifetime memberships will cease to exist. So,
if you have been thinking about purchasing a lifetime membership, you
have a few months left to do it.
I know $3000 may seem like a lot of money, but consider this: If you
plan on being around the academy for the next two to three years, you
will spend around $3000 for your training. So why not purchase a
lifetime membership and be done with paying for classes? Besides, in
three years or less, you will have broken even.
Those who purchased lifetime memberships in the late 1990's are still
smiling over the deal they got: $2800 for ten years of unlimited
training. That boils down to $280 per year or $23 a month for
unlimited martial arts training. Not a bad deal in my book!!!!
