Relson Gracie Promoted to Redbelt
This last Saturday, April 6, 2013, Rorion Gracie promoted his younger brother Relson to 9th Dan Redbelt in Graice Jiu Jitsu. Following the promotion ceremony at Kaiser High School, Relson led a seminar for those in attendance.
I did a search and didn't see this anywhere else on the forum, so if someone else did post it, don't scream "F you noob" at me. If no one has posted this earlier, then WTF? The second oldest son of Helio gets promoted to redbelt and some blue belt lurker is the first to break the news on Bullshido?
Admin note: Admonishment received. We will be doing the Shrimp of Shame across the floor in shame as pennance.

I found a site with some pics from the events this last weekend (Relson's last seminar as a red-black belt, the promotion ceremony and Relson's first seminar as a red belt).

Congrats to him. Cool to see him and his whole family devoted to GJJ. Oh and the Gracie Diet. Always marketing.

Dang. This was a 10-minute walk from my house. Of course, I had no idea this was going on. Good on him, though.
