The School was wall to wall with students, Master Carlos Gracie Jr and 6 Gracie Barra Black Belts. Master Carlos Gracie Jr. showed us some coll attacks from the closed guard, rolled with the students and towards the end of the sparring session called everyone to the promotions time.
As the Gracie Barra tradition says each new Gracie Barra Black Belt had to make a speech to share experiences and thoughts about their journey in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
No doubt is was a day to remember. We would like to sincerely thank Master Carlos Gracie Jr. for dedicating his entire life to Gracie Barra and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, otherwise this amazing ceremony would not be possible.
Also congratulations for the recently promoted Gracie Barra Black Belts:
Renato “Babalu” Sobral
Remember: “The Black Belt is a white belt who never quit.”
