Giorgio had expanded the art to five states within Australia, hosted Grandmaster Kang on a two week national tour, graded 7 black belt students and held two National Tournaments (2013, 14).
Recently in February 2020, Giorgio led a team to the BJJ Oceanic Championship where they picked up a silver and two gold medals, Giorgio led the Blue Belt Masters division winning Gold.
