For the past 10 years Gene Lebell has been giving the Judo Gene Lebell Grappling Award to
his Black Belts and/or Instructors.  We will recognize a student for the first time. This student award will be presented by Bart Vale, one of Gene Lebell’s Black Belts.

In order for a student to be eligible for this award he or she must be a first degree black belt.

The student must show good stand-up fighting and good ground fighting.
Must have good hand and feet combination and good submission techniques.
Must have good conditioning and coordination.

And as Gene Lebell put it in his own words the student has to be good at everything
not just a good shooter or hooker or puncher or kicker .

If you have a student that you think is worthy of this award please contact  Bart Vale at 954-746-0202
