Mr. Murphy is one of the coolest dudes I know. Side note – he will be the first person to get two black belts from two Tarpein’s – Eric received his Shorei Black belt with my Father and will get another one in bjj from me.

Congratulations to a few of my newest blue belts ! Laura and @jiu_jitsu_bear. Did great for belt advancement! @jiu_jitsu_bear – taking a trip down BJJ LANE !we competed together – watch Josh Barnett turn into a blueberry- ate the hell out of 7-11 Burritos- watched countless NHB fights – seminars road trips – jammed on podcast together – lived – laughed-and cried together ! To many more man! Here is a dude who never ask to be held back never asked to be promoted – just understands old school values and grinding in BJJ. AND KNOWS THE SELF DEFENSE SYSTEM of BJJ that is overlooked by most today. I caught @jiu_jitsu_bear off guard with this advancement- and it was a proud moment for everyone involved. Also side note the black belt I’m wearing is a hand made belt that was gifted to me from this man ! Proud of you man! #tarpeins #tarpeinsdojo #selfdefense #bjj #karate #brazilianjiujitsu #kickboxing #MMA #mixedmartialarts #muaythai #judo #sambo #kidskarate #davenport #bettendorf #moline #eastmoline #silvis #rockisland #qca #legitblackbelt (at Tarpein’s Dojo)
