Coach Hasbrouck letter of Gratitude

Coach Daniel Hasbrouck along with his wife Rebekah Says “Thank You Team”

From the desk of Coach Daniel Hasbrouck:

Team is forever

Greetings Teammates,

I would like to take the time to say goodbye in person, but in case we miss each other in the few weeks here is the written version.

It has been my utmost pleasure in training at Excel Jiu Jitsu.

I have grown beyond belief in my martial arts endeavors and the reason is all of you.  I would not have been able to do so without you.

I will take the relationships I have forged with each of you to my next challenge and well beyond.  The friendship that I have experienced is beyond measure and I will treasure it greatly.

Good Journey

I don’t like to say goodbye, but good journey is I believe more appropriate.

A journey allows someone the ability to come and go.

Teammwork makes the Dream Work; BJJ Team Martial Arts way

See you soon

With that said I will be returning (hopefully to live CA), but most likely for visit.  I know I like to joke around, but thank you for putting up with me and my antics.  I know it can be annoying at times.

There is an ancient proverb stating “that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” Not only do I feel this way about the Professor Michio Grubbs, but to me it also applies to all of you. When I was ready to train again, you all appeared.

It has been one fantastic adventure.

Thank you.

Coach Daniel
