R-L On October 7th, 2018 Katie Bouteau was promoted to the rank of black belt by Royce Gracie. After passing a gruelling test with at least a 50% fail rate she was promoted, and we are all very proud of her.
Katie is the architect and cheif instructor of our youth program. She's exhibited an acumen for teaching Jiu Jitsu, she's able to convey the the elements of Gracie Jiu Jitsu efectively, concisely, and commands the respect of students as well as peers.
If you have a chance to train with her, you should. We are lucky to have her as part of the Fortitude Jiu Jitsu family.
