Marcelo Garcia has outdone himself. The perfect reputation of the jiu jitsu ace just got another major bump as he took his time when promoting a student – instead of a brown belt 4th stripe which was strongly hinted at with Garcia holding the belt Garcia promoted him to black. Check out the amazing video below:

Of course student in question is no well known Gianni Grippo. Many might not be aware but Grippo actually started at Renzo Gracie Academy. Him leaving was quite a controversy at the time as plenty of people weighed in and nobody at the actual gym knew he was leaving.
