Another Aussie World Champ

Local BJJ wiz, Maryanne Mulluhay, recently took gold at the prestigious World Brazilian Jiu Jitsu championships in California. Despite being up against sixteen of the best female grapplers in the world, Maryanne went through them all to become the first Australian women to bring home the gold from this event.
Tonight she was awarded purple belt at the behest of Rigan Machado after the advanced class in Geelong. Rigan pointed out that as she has already reached the highest possible plateau in her belt class (the world title) that 'it is LAW' that she now receive her purple. Maryanne is not only a fierce competitor, but a wonderful and highly valued member of the Geelong school. Will she be the first Aussie female BJJ Black Belt? Time will tell ...
