I predict Jon Satava will be wearing brown by year's end and black not long after.

Kon, as I understand it, there are only 3 affiliates of Marcelo's in the US, you being one of them. Am I right about that?

That looks about right- They are updating their website, and showed me a screenshot with the affliation page- look for my academy to be added to the website once the new one comes online.

Jon Satava is awesome- as well as so many of MG's guys. I dont think Marcelo strictly follows the IBJJF guidelines, but it IBJJF looks like 1.5 years min from purple to brown, and brown to black is 1 year.

I forgot when he got his purple, but it might have been less than 12 months ago? Even though he is already way past that belt level imo.  (** I just looked at FB, looks like he's had it since 12/2011)

chickenscratch -  Who's Marcelo's new black belt? Phone Post


Zeljko Drinovac, a really nice guy from Croatia, who has lived in NYC for many years, and competes in Senior 1 or 2 division.

I believe he came to MG's academy as a brown belt (as did his other 2 promoted black belts - Josh Waitzkin, and Alex Meadows- of memphisbjj...if memory serves me correctly).
