FIRST EVER ALVAREZ BJJ BLACK BELT!!

Just wanted to Congratulate Mr. Angel Vargas one more time for Achieving the rank of Black Belt and for becoming my very First Black Belt!

As I said earlier this evening, I couldn’t ask for a Better person to become my very First Black Belt! Mr. Vargas has Always been Humble since the very first day he walked into my academy. He has NEVER talked Bad about any of his Teammates, he has Always tried to Uplift and Encourage his Teammates around him. Mr. Vargas is and always has been, one of my Best Training partners and Students. Mr. Vargas has stuck by my side through the Good and Bad times. He never let anyone Influence his decisions on which way he should go when times were tough and Lies were spread.  

Mr. Vargas has already Started to Plant Good Seeds with his students at Premier Martial Arts Southlake. With the Great Character and Attitude Mr. Vargas has, you can Only Expect for him to Produce Great students On and Off the Mats! 

Keep up the Great Work with your Team and Business!

Thank you again Mr. Vargas for allowing me to be your Instructor and Coach for all these years and Thank You again for being the Great person that you are! 

You will Always have Friend in me for as long as I am alive! Osss

Keep your Heads Up, get Back to the Mats and Keep Grindin’! Don’t let ONE day determine the rest of your Life. You do Not Suck, You are Not a Loser and you Only Fail if you QUIT and GIVE UP!

It’s not the critic who counts. It’s not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled. Credit belongs to the man who really was in the arena, his face marred by dust, sweat, and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs to come short and short again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. It is the man who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasm and knows the great devotion, who spends himself on a worthy cause, who at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement. And, who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and cruel souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
- Theodore Roosevelt
