JMJC Awards Gene Simmons an Honorary Black Belt

New York, NY – While attending the Gene Simmons New York Vault Experience March 25, 2018, The Internationally renowned, Jason Morris Judo Center (Glenville, NY) owners, Teri Takemori (IJF “A” Ref) & 4x Olympian, Jason Morris presented Gene Simmons of the rock band, Kiss with an honorary Black Belt. Simmons is touring many cities and a few international spots with his Vault Experience and came to New York the same weekend as the NY Open where Jason was coaching at the New York Athletic Club making it perfect timing for the two legends to meet. Simmons was a gracious host to his New York fans by greeting them in the line outside the venue and making a special note to say hello to the Morris twins, Dani & Randi who Gene was nice enough to allow in as they were the only children in attendance. Gene treated all to a combination, story time and questions and answer session as well as some songs. During the meet and greet, Gene showed Jason some Judo performing Ippon seionage and Osotogari on him. Jason then presented Gene with the promotion and the duo had some laughs while Jason put the belt on Gene. Gene also impressively spoke a little Japanese to Teri, who hasn’t spoke it in quite a while so she responded in english (LOL). Along with the promotion which included an embroidered Black Belt and personalized certificate, Jason gave Gene personalized JMJC sweat tops for him and his wife Shannon Tweed.
