    BJJ Grandmaster

    <<< BJJ is one of the few systems in which one of its founding fathers is still alive.

    If we look at other styles where a major patriarch died, the question of "Who's in charge?" usually compromises the art (e.g., Yip Man's students William Cheung and Leung Ting).

    If Helio Gracie were to pass away (which we hope not in the short term), who inherits the BJJ system ? >>>

    I was present after class when Helio awarded Rorion the Red Belt.

    Red belt is given to anyone OVER 8th dan traditionally.
    Rorion was a 6th when he first appreaed in Inside Karate I think, talking about GJJ and his choreography of Lethal Weapon 1.
