New Jersey Martial Arts Hall of Fame to honor Gordon Ryan with the “Jiu Jitsu Achievement” award

New Jersey: The New Jersey Martial Arts Hall of Fame is extremely proud of its seventh class of inductees to the New Jersey Martial Arts Hall of Fame. This class will be honored at the seventh dinner gala to be held at The Event Center in iPlay America in Freehold, NJ on December 6, 2019.

On December 6th, Gordon Ryan will be inducted as Jiu Jitsu Achievement

Gordon Ryan is a New Jersey (USA) born grappler and member of the well-known group – Danaher Death Squad (DDS), known particularly in jiu-jitsu‘s no-gi and submission only circuit where he beat big names of the sport such as Alexandre Ribeiro, Romulo Barral, and Gabriel Arges. A submission orientated competitor and one of the leading jiu-jitsu figures of his generation, Gordon cemented his name as one of the top brown belts on the planet in 2015 by winning the No-Gi World Championship, which led to his black belt promotion under Garry Tonon – this way becoming Tonon’s first ever student to achieve the rank, a belt responsibility shared with another one of Gordon’s coaches, John Danaher. Gordon is now the number 1 ranked pound for pound submission grappler in the world.
