2003 Recap

This year was another wonderful one at Lloyd Irvin’s Martial Arts Academy. Our school has grown so much in the last few years and each year we always achieve monumental feats by both individual students and by the whole team. Here are some Highlights of 2003.

  • Jose Villarisco comes to L.I.M.A.A. to be a full time instructor and professional competitor. He subsequently wins his first fight wearing the famous Lloyd Irvin “Bulldog” flag against the number 2 ranked and highly touted fighter in his weight class.
  • Master Lloyd expands his adult Brazilian Jiu-jitsu program to Virginia, headed up by his very own instructor and friend Master Leonardo Dalla Costa.
  • The Junior Grappling Team goes to their first Judo tournament and shows why their the best kids around. Stand out performances were Joseph Rollins 1st, Darius Churchman 2nd, Krystal Allen 2nd.
  • The first Junior Black Belt Candidates are promoted. Mark Swadley Jr., Tommy Parker Jr., and Miles Young.

Attention Ladies and Gentlemen at Lloyd Irvin's Martial Arts Academy and Friends.


Marquis Whitlow

On December 5th 2003 Marquis Whitlow and Jordan West became the very first students to finish the Little Ninja Course since its inception over 3 years ago. We are pleased to announce that now they will be able to wear the white belt with the "BLACK" stripe and carry the prestigious title of "BLACK NINJA." It goes without saying that the instructors and staff have watched these two grow and are very proud of their accomplishments.

We look forward to your future accomplishments in the Junior (BIG KID) program.
