On September 20, 2020, Teri Stewart became the first female athlete to earn a Colorado Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Satori Black Belt, and now is one of only 5 athletes ever to have earned a CBJJS Black Belt: What an accomplishment! Way to go Teri! Brilliant!
This is what one of her teammates, Stephanie Burke, had to say about Teri’s achievement on Facebook:
Sunday, September 20, 2020 · Denver · There are very few achievements in life that compare to earning a black belt in jiu jitsu. It often takes a decade or longer. Years of dedication, set-backs, victories, injuries, frustration and triumph. Grappling is hard. Very hard. Teri is a treasured coach at Colorado Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Satori and has lead our women’s team with strength, skill and love. Her passion for jiu jitsu and every student in her care has bred some incredibly tough ladies and skilled fighters. She is respected (and feared!) among men and women of all skill levels and sizes. This gentle, loving woman is a savage killer on the mats. Let her get ahold of you once and you’ll know. Over the years, we’ve celebrated many victories and promotions as a community. Today, we watched as Professor Sean promoted her to become our first female black belt. There is no greater honor, and no one more deserving. Congratulations, Professor Teri! It is an honor to train beside you!
