I'm curious how many BJJ black belts post here on the UG. Pro fighters or not.
If you are a legit BJJ black belt, post here with when you got the belt, who awarded it to you, your lineage, how many years it took to earn it, and if you teach or just train.
Thanks!

I'll start.

Black belt awarded in August 2012 (after 15 years) by Jamel McCurry and Carlos Machado. (Machado lineage). I teach and train now out of Akron Ohio.

I tried this thread on the UG but just started getting idiotic David Lang references. Oh funny! *sigh*

See if we can get an actual idea how many we have here.

BB in March 2011 under Marcelo Pereira (Nova Uniao) and proud to have my friend and coach BJJ BB Luis Gutierrez there as well. Started training September 1997 so I guess 13.5 years.

I am hoping to test for Yellow Belt under GM Shen this year.
