Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt

I have written from time to time about my interest in Brazilian jiu jitsu. I have trained in Brazilian jiu jitsu for over twenty years, and have had the privilege of studying under great professors at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York City. For the last three and half years that has been Fabio Coelho, for the last while augmented with judo instruction from Garry St. Leger.

The culmination of this is that last week I received by black belt.
