On October 25, during the Brazilian electoral period, Robson Gracie (9th degree coral belt and son of Carlos Gracie sr promoted the far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro to the rank of BJJ black belt. Bolsonaro has never trained jiu-jitsu in his life.

Bolsonaro launched his presidential campaign in August 2018 and came in first place in the first round of the general election on 7 October 2018, with PT candidate Fernando Haddad coming in second place. The two candidates will face again on 28 October 2018.

Bolsonaro is known for his strong support of national conservatism and is a vocal opponent to same-sex marriage, feminism, abortion, drug liberalization. He is a polarizing and controversial politician, his views and comments have drawn both praise and criticism in Brazil.

And this is why rank belts are silly.

I like how they wore their gi tops, but not their pants- and how he just didn’t give a ****.

Wouldn’t wanna look silly now would we?

Key in all the excuses I’m used to hearing from krotty guys about how being a black belt “isn’t about fighting” but how it’s about discipline, honor, and all that other ****.... because you can’t fight....

Well, he is trying to submit a nation of 210.000.000.

That's some high level Ju-jitsu.

I assume, some sort of publicity for a candidate just before a very important election?

Sadly, I've seen this happen in Judo as well, in the USA even. Not right-wing whatevers, but other non-judoka.

BTW, the Integralist (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_Integralism) party (the Brazilian version of fascism) supports Bolsonaro so, as Helio was a card carrying Integralist, this honorary black belt in BJJ makes a lot of sense.

The sheer amount of support for that shitbag in the BJJ community is depressing.

I don’t know. I support a lot of people, my fiancé being one. I’m sure as **** not promoting her to black belt any time soon- even if it is “honorary”

If you are engaged to a man, one e.

If you are engaged to a women, two ee's.

I support your choices either way without judgement.
