While everyone knows that promotions multiply just after the Mundials, occasionally we see a slight bump ahead of it as coaches decide their students have earned the right to be further challenged.
Leve Brown Belts watch out; Angelica Galvao is now on the attack! Angelica showed her stars, winning first place in almost every event in which she competed this last year: 2011 World Championships, Abu Dhabi Pro San Diego Trials, and the 2012 Pan Championships (her only loss this year to Multiple time Black Belt World Champion Michelle Nicolini at the Abu Dhabi Pro Championships). Her husband, world renowned black belt Andre Galvao promoted her on April 23, 2012.
Congratulations to Angelica for a very well deserved promotion!
