Orian Valdez began training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in December 2018 and is a 2 stripe White belt. This past summer, he competed in his first tournament at the 2019 AZBJJF State Championships and went 1-1. He must have had fun, because he signed up for the Southwest Classic at the end of October. Orian also runs track and cross country at school, and he's an honor roll student. He’s twice made Primero’s Academic Honor Roll with a GPA of 3.0 and higher. Orian consistently attends two to three classes per week, which is why he keeps improving. He recently discovered that he likes art and he’s learning how to paint and draw. One of his favorite weekend activities is watching football on TV, and like most kids, he’s also into video games. Orian is one of the politest and well-mannered young men, you will ever meet. He’s the perfect representation of how our students should carry themselves in and out of the dojo. We are honored to have Orian as a member of the Primero family. We congratulate him on his accomplishments and wish him continued success. Orian is one of the reasons Primero has become Tucson’s premier jiu jitsu academy for kids and teens.
