As soon as I saw this thread title, i knew it had to be the colorado brothers. Those dudes are fucking ASS KICKERS!!!! I dunno what it was about those dudes, but they had my number like nobody I have ever rolled with.

Well deserved!!!

TTT for Carlos Machado! and the hard work of his students!

Denis from Australia

Yes, the Colorado Brothers have been kicking my ass ever since they showed up in Dallas and used to be skinny vegetarians.  I can't tell you how many times Taryn has got me with his damn front headlock game. 


Nice to see that mexican finaly got his black belt!

I think Roberto is from Peru, but congrats to those guys anyway :)

he tells people that but he is mexican

Ha ha. Well, where ever he is from, he is damn good. He use to come roll at Dallas Judo from time to time and eat people up with his closed guard. just gave me a flash back of many many front headlocks!! Those dudes are the nicest guys in the world, but damn they drove me nuts! they had a damned answer for every defence I could throw at them!!!

TTT for the colorado bros, and my learning through having my ass kicked!

Congrats! That's a huge accomplishment. How long does it take?

Even though I don't visit this forum as often as I should, I would like to express my deep appreciation to everyone for the congratulatory messages.

As for Princess, I believe you are mistaking me for someone else. I was not born in Mexico and aside from a few vacation trips to Cancun and Mexico City have never lived there for an extended period of time. On the other hand, even if I was born there, why deny my origin?

I have nothing but great things to say about the kindness of the Mexican people and the beauty of their country. Furthermore, the colonial architecture of Mexico City is very much alike and, honestly, even prettier than that of Lima, capital of my homeland.

Once again my thanks to everyone that has in any way, morally or physically, helped me reach such an advaced level in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
