Last night in Las Vegas, Simpson “Bear Tamer” Go, was awarded his black belt last night by his teacher Marc Laimon at Cobra Kai. This is Marc Laimon’s first time promoting a student to the rank of black belt. Sim Go boasts Abu Dhabi competition victories over Ricky Lundell, Jeff Glover, and Dave Jacobs.
The promotion of Sim Go to black belt reinforces the already impressive roster of high end grapplers at the school, which in addition to Laimon and Go, boasts the teaching skills of Jeff Glover and Scott Bieri.
If you’d like to get to know a little about Sim, you can check out the interview with him here on The FightWorks Podcast about a year ago.
