Congratulations to 2016 Belt Recipients

December 15, 2016

2 Blue Belts, 16 Pink Belts, 10 Purple Belts, 4 Brown Belts & 2 Black Belts

We held the Gracie Academy winter belt ceremony last week and it was amazing! All of the Gracie Academy students gathered to congratulate the hard work and dedication of the select few who qualified for advancement to the next level. Altogether, the Gracies awarded 2 blue belts, 16 pink belts, 10 purple belts, and 4 brown belts. The highlight of the ceremony was when black belts were awarded to long-time student, Billy Graziadei and Gracie Academy instructor Alex Ueda, who gave one of the best black belt speeches of all time!
