New Black Belts – Jitesh, Alex, and Ricardo!

We just finished the Gracie Academy winter belt ceremony and it was a joyous occasion to say the least. Altogether the Gracies awarded 36 blue belts, 9 purple belts, and 3 brown belts. The highlight of the ceremony was when black belts were awarded to three of the Academy’s most dedicated instructors: Jitesh Patel, Alex Stuart and Ricardo Bayona.
