GANDAOLI EARNS BLACK BELT AT HEIGHTS ACADEMY

Congratulations to Jayronne Gandaoli for being Guam’s newest jiu-jitsu black belt!

Jayronne received her promotion from Professors Omar Damian and Terence Aflague at Heights Academy Guam in Hagatña.

“I feel so grateful to say the very least. It’s a surreal feeling after 12 years of jiu-jitsu and being promoted by my coaches that have been with me since I was 11 years old,” said the 23 year old. “I wasn’t expecting to be promoted for another couple of years. I was actually planning on making my way back to the 2021 World Jiu Jitsu Championships to try to win another title.”

Gandaoli was the first female World Champion, PAN Champion, All-Island Wrestler for Academy and former Collegiate Wrestler with King University (ranked #1 in the Nation).

Jayronne is also a mother of three and a head instructor of the Women’s program and assistant instructor for the Adult program at Heights.
