Tuesday was Leah's last day training with Island Top Team before journeying to the land of the rising sun. Though she was only with us for 4 months, that is a large chunk of our club's existence, and she's pretty damn cool, always bringing the awesome sauce during drilling and rolling, not to mention quipping (including chastising our instructor for employing the term "awesome sauce") so we're gong to miss her effervescent presence in class. Prior to her departure, Leah was awarded the first stripe on her white belt, earned with her adroit guard passing, slick armbars from the mount and excellent scrambling developed during our front headlock module. All the best in your travels and future endeavours Leah, from everyone at Island Top Team!
