Congrats to Luke Buchanan who was awarded his purple belt by BJJ black belt (1st degree) Alan Lowry and Ciaran Toal on Monday 23rd July 2018. Although Luke is only 18 years old, the minimum age to receive a purple belt, he is highly-deserving of the honour demonstrating excellent technique with strong submissions, excellent escapes and positional holds, as well as physical toughness. He is aslo an active and acomplished competitor.
Luke is BJJ School Belfast’s first purple belt. His promotion, along with the awarding of Michal Lelek’s blue belt, show the high standards the club is setting.
