The ever so awesome Jean Jacques Machado was awarded his Red & Black Belt from Rickson Gracie last night, celebrating 25 years as a black belt competitor, teacher and practitioner.
The ceremony took place at Rickson's school in West Los Angeles*. When Carlos Gracie Jr was promoted to the same, there were a few emotional videos on YouTube so I'm looking forward to similar ones from this promotion. In the meantime, feast your eyes on this Jean Jacques Machado grappling highlight:
Congratulations to master Jean Jacques on this milestone.
*I believe that the school has now been turned to Rickson's son Kron, a growing legend in his own right.
