Successful Summer Belt Ceremony

The Gracie Academy Summer Belt Ceremony was a huge success. Thank you to everyone who showed up to support our jiu-jitsu brothers and sisters as they move on to the next level on their journeys to the top! Altogether Ryron and Rener awarded 48 blue belts, 8 purple belts, and 3 brown belts. Additionally, there were 9 women who successfully completed the Gracie Women Empowered program and were awarded the pink belt as a symbol of their accomplishment. Gracie Academy instructors, Alex Stuart and Chris Saunders were awarded the first degree on their black belts, as were Jose and Rodrigo Salas from Mexico City.
