    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 ? >>>

              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.

                    Next you get the cumberbum.

                    Then transcendental illumination.

                      Oh shit, a cumberbum.
                      *Makes note to self not to quit BJJ for another 50 years*.

                      On a small tangent, there's this 58 year old purple belt who trains at Alliance, he started when he was 52. Even though the other purples were owning him, it was still quite impressive for a dude to start that old and still be able to roll.
