Au revoir Juliette!

Last night we said au revoir and bon voyage to our longest serving female student Juliette Brillett who is leaving the UK and heading out for new adventures Down Under. She is off to Paris first for Christmas, then coming back in the new year to tie up loose ends (and tie us all up at the gym) and then she is off to terrorise the Aussies :) 

It has been an absolute pleasure to teach Juliette and I'm very proud to be her first BJJ instructor. Watching her walk through the doors for the first time and then seeing her grow in skills and confidence, before unleashing her on the competition circuit is what makes it all worthwhile as an instructor. Her Shoulder of Justice is horrendous, which I'm sure my students will all agree, but the biggest thing I'm proud of is actually getting her to finally smile in a photo :)

God bless and bon voyage Juliette from everyone at Checkmat Wimbleon and London Fight Factory. We wish you nothing but happiness and great adventures!

Farewell juliette
Although brief, it was nice to meet you. All the best in Australia next year! Keep up the good work and continue to choke grown men against their will.

Safe travels
