The 1st Live BBS1 Test from a Pure GU Student

August 28, 2012

It all started with a Gracie Garage and a dream!

Jamie Harding was the first Gracie University student to open a Gracie Garage in the UK. 18 months later, he became the first person to score a 100 on the Gracie Combatives blue belt test. And now he has become the first pure Gracie University student (meaning he trained exclusively at his home, and he had no formal training at a school) to travel to Gracie Academy Headquarters to take the Master Cycle Blue Belt Stripe 1 test in person. In this short documentary, produced by Ralek Gracie, you get to join Jamie during his BBS1 test under the watchful eye of Rener Gracie.

In the time since his BBS1 test, Jamie has completed the Gracie Academy Instructor Certification Program and has opened a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Certified Training Center in London. To learn more about Jamie Harding and his Certified Training Center, click here.
